Executive Principal’s Blog – 15.9.23: ’Great Starts Make for Great Journeys’

I would like to thank all students, parents and carers and, of course, our hard-working staff for making our first fortnight in school such a positive start to the academic year. Students in all year groups have been Aspiring to Achieve and really focused on learning to the best of their ability, all carefully following the ‘Keys to Success’ in every lesson; it has been impressive to see. 

It was a real privilege to welcome so many of our new Year 7 parents and carers to yesterday’s Year 7 Settling In Evening. We do hope you found the evening useful and were able to iron out some of the usual worries and anxieties at this important transition stage to secondary school. A big thank you must go to our Pastoral leaders, the Year 7 CDCs, our SENDCo Mrs Seed and Assistant Headteacher Mr Mitman who is the SLT link to Year 7 and coordinated the whole event.

It was the British adventurer and television presenter Bear Grylls, OBE who is quoted as saying that “The greatest journeys start with a single step.” All staff and students have made some really positive steps at the start of this new academic year and we all hope that it makes for a great journey this year.
