Year 6 Open Evening

We will be holding our annual Year 6 Open Evening on Thursday 8th October at 6.30pm. There will be a presentation from the Headteacher (at 6.30, 7:10 & 8:00) and a chance to look round our school and meet with staff. We look forward to meeting with year 6 pupils and their families.

Week A / Week B

We have changed our timetable this year to lengthen our lessons to 1 hour each instead of 50 minutes. We will now have 5 lessons per day instead of 6. The start and end times of the day have not changed.

The extra 10 minutes will allow staff to go into more depth during classes and will reduce the amount of time wasted moving around the school. This change necessitates a 2 week timetable. If parents want to know whether a week is A or B please download the A/B calendar on the right hand side of this page.

A New Year Begins

We hope you have had a great summer and are ready for the new academic year. There’s been lots of work going on in the school over the summer and we are really looking forward to 2015-16 – our first year as an 11-16 school!

Staff return on Wednesday 26th August and pupils return on Tuesday 1st September. The new year 7 start at 8.30am. All other year groups return at 11.00am.

See you then!


Congratulations to all our ex pupils who have have recently received their GCSE and A Level results. We hope that you have achieved the results you wanted and wish you well for the future!

Local Labour Market

We have added a report about the Leicestershire Labour Market to our letters section. This report was produced by the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership and may prove helpful to pupils when choosing options.
