College Applications and Interviews

Many Year 11 students are now sorted for colleges and have had their interviews, but there are still a few of you that need to get this sorted out.

Those students who are still waiting to apply for an apprenticeship, now is the time! Get completing those applications online or even on paper, but please remember to let me know once you have done it and then I can keep a record of it.

If you are unsure of anything, come and see me.

Year 8 Geography trip to Malham – Postponed due to poor weather!

Due to the poor weather conditions we are experiencing  at  present we have decided to postpone the Year 8 Geography trip on Tuesday 26th March to Malham. Weather forecasts indicate that there will be continued sub-zero temperatures and snowfall over the next few days in the Malham area.

We apologise for this decision but the safety of our students is our priority. The trip will be re-arranged for the summer term we will confirm the date via letters to parents/carers in the coming days.

Thank you for your understanding.
Mr Barnes and Miss Masefield

Keep Kids Safe Communication System

We have a new text messaging system in place which will help to improve communication between school & parents.  If your child is going to be absent or if you know that they will be late, please note that you can now contact the school by text on 07624 817691.  Alternatively, you can still ring 01254 231051, dialling 1 when you get through to leave a message on the school absence line.

In order for this to work effectively, can you please notifiy us ASAP of any change in contact details, especially mobile phone numbers.  We have already sent texts out asking for email addresses. If you have not done so already, please also provide us with an email if you have one, so that messages can be sent this way in addition to any phone calls made or texts sent.

Many thanks for your help & support.
