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. 

Oxbridge Project Interviews

Dr O’Hear: Mr Ribton and Ms Pretsell put Aishni Mittra from 7B through her paces in one of the many Oxbridge Project interviews that are taking place all over the school this week.

56 candidates from years 7-10 are competing for just 20 places on this competitive scheme designed to prepare our very brightest students for the rigours of Russell Group university entry. They are being tested on a range of unseen texts, current affairs questions and a range of subject specific questions. Aishni stood up to some robust questioning on William Blake’s poem, The Echoing Green.
