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. 

An Overdue Update from the SchoolHouse Project

Having completed all of the wall panels and the vast majority of roof rafters for the house, students are now working on the Douglas fir timber frame. They are using traditional frame-building techniques to cut large scale joints.

During the Easter break many students will be attending a week-long frame-building camp to keep progress ticking over, before the garage is demolished at the start of the summer term to make room for the frame and walls.

See this week's newsletter for images of Hamza at work with an antique drilling rig, and Luke and Ricardo making good use of a large cross cut saw. Well done team and keep up the good work!
