Secondary School Entrance Changes

From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.  

All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.

The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building. 

Sixth Form Geography Talk

This Thursday, Governor Ken Bromfield will be talking to a group of sixth form geographers about Thomas Malthus’ theories of population and sustainability.

Malthus was born in 1766 and died in 1834, during which time he developed many ideas about the effects of an increasing population on quality of life and our ability to adapt and progress. His thoughts are still the subject of much discussion today.

He once wrote: "The power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man."

Students will be organised into think tanks and will be responsible for driving the seminar.
