Summer Discovery is a collection of art, books, articles, podcasts, debates, poetry and lectures, that have been collated for students to enjoy during the last week of term and throughout the summer holidays. Each item has been chosen as it is culturally enriching, academically challenging or significant in today’s society. Indeed, there are also a series of activities that are linked to the items that will challenge and inspire. All the texts have links to extended or complete versions which are all mobile phone and tablet compatible and are completely free. The items come from many different fields, for example, there is reading about the power of sport, a debate on climate change and a lecture on the magic of maths, to name a few. We hope that students enjoy the reading, watching, and listening and we would love to see your attempts at one of the activities.
If you do wish to share it with us, please send it to email@example.com.
Mr Whitaker, Assistant Headteacher

Results will be shared electronically and will be released after 8am.
For reasons of security no results will be emailed out but instead will be accessed independently via the school INSIGHT portal.
In line with exam board guidelines, we are regretfully not permitted to post or email results to Parents or Carers.
To avoid any issue on the results days with the INSIGHT portal, we strongly recommend each student check their INSIGHT account in advance.
Full uniform is required for September. Advice has been refreshed and now says that uniforms do not need to be cleaned any more frequently or with a different method than usual.
The water fountains for obvious reasons need to remain switched off and there are very strict classroom protocols relating to the sharing and use of resources so it is important that your son/daughter bring into school each day:
Personal hand sanitisers are not required but are permissible – there is plenty of provision of sinks and additional hand washing facilities but your son or daughter may prefer the convenience and ease of their own sanitiser.
Each year group will eat separately in specific zoned areas of the school. All year groups have access to our catering provision via different outlets and all food is prepared and sold under safe Covid conditions. Quality of our catering remains a highlight for students!
Purchasing of food is done via the student contactless card. Money can be uploaded on line (please click here). Again, for obvious reason we can no longer accept cash sent into school.
As a preventative measure I continue to minimise anyone visiting the school site and this regretfully extends to parents. It feels awful not to be welcoming in this way and so my apologies for asking that you only attend the school site by appointment and only if necessary.

We are looking forward to welcoming students back to school in September.
On the first day back, students will be met at the front of school by members of Senior Leadership Team (SLT), Heads of Years and tutors and escorted into school through their assigned entry points.
