School meal and uniform prices

After the Easter Break school dinner prices will be increasing slightly. The cost of a meal deal will increase by 5p to £2.25 and a large filled baguette will increase from £1.90 to £2.00. Parents and carers can use ParentPay to top up their child’s dinner card. If you have not got access to ParentPay please contact the school office.

We have also had to increase the cost of the school uniform. We have not raised this for several years now but we have now had to do so from April 1st to cover the costs of purchasing the uniform from our suppliers. Please see our new pricing list available from this link.

GCSE Success & Support

As year 11 students approach the exam season they can view the Easter Intervention timetable and GCSE Exam timetable from our GCSE Success page. There are also helpful revision hints including access to the Science past papers on the Edmodo site.

Cancelled – Quiz Night – 28 April
