We had a very busy 6th Form Open Evening on Wednesday and I hope that everyone who came had a chance to have a good look around and ask lots of questions. If you have any more queries or were unable to attend please contact the 6th Form on 01983 567 331 or

On the same day we had a performance of
‘Crashing people’ which is a powerful piece about child sexual exploitation. This is something we hold every year as it’s essential that students are aware of the issues surrounding this topic.

We had a very useful
Student Council meeting on Thursday 15th November. Included on the agenda was; curriculum links to employment, the Christmas carol concert, student communication and noticeboards. The minutes will shortly be published on our website.

Next week we have our
annual book fair which will be held in the Library. This is always popular with students as they can buy a range of books, stationery and posters at half the marked price. The book fair runs from Thursday 22nd to Friday 29th November. Year 9 and 10 students can visit at first break and Years 7, 8 and 11 at lunchtimes.

Our next
Family Learning session is being organised by the Alcohol Education Trust and will be held on Wednesday 21st November, 4.45pm-6.15pm. This is not intended to be a judgemental or ‘preachy’ event but rather to help us keep our families safe and informed. The session is designed to be relevant to parents and students on the Isle of Wight and will be interactive with lots of opportunities to ask questions. Please contact Tanya Baxter for more information or to book on 01983 567 331 or

Our next
Parents’ Evening is for Year 10 and is on Thursday 6th December. Letters have been posted home. You can book your slots using If you have any questions please contact Jan Dover in the Year Managers office via reception or
