Any year 10 students that have already consented but have yet to receive their vaccine due to lockdown, we already have your consent and we will be catching up with you at our school session.
For more information and to enable your child to receive this important vaccine it is ESSENTIAL that you complete the online consent following the link below. If your child is in year 9 and you have already completed our electronic consent, you do not need to do this again.
If you do NOT want you child to receive the vaccine then please also complete a form stating that you do not want them to receive the vaccine, this means we will not chase further.

STOP, DROP & READ:
Tuesday 30th March - Period 2
Stop, Drop, and Read! is a recurring school initiative where students are encouraged to stop and drop everything that that were doing, pick up a book and begin reading. This emphasises the importance of reading and, it demonstrates that you can take a break from what you are doing and do a little reading with little or no preparation. Encouraging students to read can be challenging. However, this program proves that reading can be more enjoyable than students think!
Knowledge Organisers (KOs) contain the key information, concepts and subject specific terminology that students will be taught within lessons and then need to know for each particular subject / qualification.
How will Knowledge Organisers be used?
All students across Years 7-11 will be taught how to use KOs to improve the effectiveness of their homework learning. They will be expected to memorise as much of the detail on the KOs as possible.
Medicine - students can bring paracetamol into College, but a Parent or Carer must complete and sign this form. Aspirin and ibuprofen cannot be administered to students unless prescribed by a doctor.
