It has been a very busy but productive half term. Thank you to everyone who the support with our behaviour review, we are already building on that success and hoping to be 'outstanding' next time.

I am delighted that so many people have signed up for our app, please can you try and make time to do this if you haven't done so already? Apart form giving lots of useful and up to date information it also saves us money, text messages sent through this route are free of charge, meaning we have more to spend on other aspects of our students' education.

The up and coming break is an excellent opportunity to spend some time with friend and families, but as part of the mix it is also important that students take the chance to get up to date with studies, coursework and revision; please refer to 'show my homework' for more details.

As we have now begun the holy season of Lent as part of our preparation for Easter, people often try and give something up. Whilst this might be a good idea, it would be even better too try and do something positive, a good deed for the day is an easy way to try and help each of us spread His love and make the world a better place in our own small way.

I wish you all a very happy half-term.
