School Events for the week commencing Monday 27th November

Access to school from January 2018

During 2015 the school opened its new reception building and launched a new entrance via Woodlands Avenue.

Following a review of the campus security it is now felt that a single entry point to the school site should be established.

From January 2018 the Chequers Way delivery entrance will now be closed to students for morning entry to school. We would ask for your support in ensuring that all students now arrive on time at the Woodlands Avenue entrance. Staff will be on hand at Chequers Way, during the first week of January, to support students with this change.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support with this initiative.
