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. 

Expedition Phase of Bronze DofE Award

Congratulations to the 52 adventurous year 10 students who spent the first weekend of half term completing the expedition phase of the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award. 

The group departed from school early on the Saturday morning and set about a 12km hike through Ashdown Forest in East Sussex. Despite some appalling weather on the first day, the students remained positive and kept one another’s spirits high. Staff and instructors were very impressed with their attitudes and the camp craft on show on Saturday evening. 

The sun turned up on Sunday for the second leg ofthe challenge and saw the hikers through to the end of a very successful weekend. Well done everyone! 

A quick reminder for those involved: Please remember to collect your signatures for volunteering, skills and sports – you must start uploading them to the DofE website soon.
