Congratulations to Sami Patel in Year 8 who was a runner up for the Readers Digest U/18 Photography competition in the Summer.

Also David Greaves collected his NCS Certificate at the Alban Arena in the weekend of 30th September. NCS is the National Citizenship Service which teaches people life skills and fundraise for charities. His ‘Wave’ succeeded in collecting £2,923.86 for local charities and his individual group raised £477, over two weeks, for the Willow Foundation.

Also participating were Alex Towle, Hannah and Nancy. Well done to you all.

Text Messaging Service

Following our successful pilot in Years 10 to 11 last week, we will be extending our text messaging service to all parents from Years 7 to 11 from next week.  Texts will be sent for being late to registration and for absence from school.  The 'late' text will be to inform you of the fact that your son was late to school so that you can discuss the importance of punctuality with him. The 'absence' text will be sent to parents who have not communicated with school regarding their son's absence asking them to contact the school to give a reason for the absence.  The aim of the texts is to communicate these two key elements to you effectively and efficiently to ensure the safety of all of our pupils.
