  • Providing opportunities and learning experiences for our young people that meet their individual needs and challenges them to succeed
  • Working together to ensure our students develop important life long skills including leadership, communication & resilience as well as achieving their very best.

Students who are expected to attend have received a letter in the post, but any year 11 student who needs to improve their core controlled assessment is welcome to attend. Please can students let their teachers know in advance, so that their work can be left with the teachers supervising the session. If necessary, please check with the class teacher whether it would be useful for your child to attend.
