This week is a normal school week.

Entrants for our codebreaking team for the National Cipher Challenge to Mr Capewell by next week, please. Sixth-formers are especially welcome. We've done well in this competition in the past with our team last year winning cash prizes. Help us make it a success again this year!

We welcome you to our Year 7 Parents' Information Evening on Thursday 03 October 2013
