Duke of Edinburgh expedition to Gredos Centre

21 students in year 10 completed their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award expedition over the weekend of the 13th - 15th of September. Mr Tweedle and Mr Cairns led the trip to the beautiful Gredos Centre where students developed their adventure skills, living self sufficiently outdoors for over 24 hours.

Parental engagement

In response to feedback received from our parent body, we will now hold weekly parental engagement meetings on Tuesdays after school. The themes and target audience of these meetings will change each week, do look out for invites being sent out electronically over the coming weeks. The next events will include: an overview of High Performance Learning; information for Science and Economics iGCSEs; a new parent social event. We hope that this will support our aim of providing parents with more information about how they may support their child's academic success.

They will work collaboratively with our existing Heads (Lucia Nunez and Fernando Tobar) for the first term before taking on full responsibility for student leadership from January 2020. Eric and Maria, along with their leadership team, have a range of exciting initiatives that they are working on. These include the appointment of primary student leaders and a new project providing all students in years 8 and 9 with the opportunity to gain experience of taking on responsibilities in the school.
