Early closures for open evening on Monday 23rd September

9 September 2019

Dear parents/carers

Early closures for open evening on Monday 23rd September

On Monday 23 September we will be holding our Open Evening event.  To give staff an opportunity to prepare and get displays ready, we will be closing the school early on Friday 20 and Monday 23 September.

The school day will finish at 12.30pm on both days. 

Students will be encouraged to leave the site immediately, although there will be a full lunch offer available on both days.  Free school meals allowances will be available.

If your child has been selected to help at the Open Evening on Monday 23 September please ensure you have completed and returned the permission slip to the relevant department.  The evening will finish at 8.00pm.

Finally, all students now leave from Pullman Gardens as the exit is larger.  To respect local residents, if you are collecting students by car please arrange to meet them away from Pullman Gardens and Hayward Gardens as the roads are very narrow and becoming easily congested.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation.

With best wishes

Year 10 Fieldwork, Swanage Beach

 

On Thursday, Mr Ffrench-Constant, Ms Bingham, Ms Harvey and I took the (new) Y11 cohort on their GCSE fieldtrip to Swanage beach on the Jurassic Coast.

As temperatures on the beach soared, the Y11s went about investigating two key questions:

1. How effective are the groynes on Swanage beach?
2. Are locals/tourists happy with hard engineering?

 

Students not only got a great tan but also some great results to analyse back at school!
Well done to all involved!
