Important Announcement

As a school community we are mourning the tragic and unexpected loss of a dear colleague and Learning Assistant. Mr Southwick had been a huge supporter of young people across the Academy Trust for many years and we shall miss him greatly.  Students and staff have described him in recent days as ‘always happy’, ‘helpful’ and someone who would ‘always try to help’ – a real testament to his kind and cheerful nature.

As a mark of respect for Mr Southwick the school will be partially closed on Friday 18 November to enable staff and students to attend his funeral.  We will remain open for Year 11,12 and 13 students ONLY. A letter and text message have been issued to parents.

I would like to thank all parents and students for their messages of condolence for Alix and his family these will all be passed on at an appropriate time.
