English Novels
Students in the following years need to hand in their English novels:

•           Year 7 – ‘Holes’

•           Year 8 – ‘Hidden’ or ‘Noughts & Crosses’

•           Year 9 – ‘Martyn Pig’

If your child has not yet handed in their novel, to their English Teacher, please ensure they do so as soon as possible.  Failure to do so will result in a letter being sent to students requesting payment to replace any missing books.

Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award
If your child is doing their Duke of Edinburgh’s Bronze Award, please inform them that they must attend a meeting after school on Tuesday instead of Wednesday this week.  At this meeting, they will be issued with trangias, tents and rucksacks if they require them.  On Saturday 17th May, students must be at school for 8.00am ready to leave for the practice weekend in Thetford Forest.

Thank you for your co-operation.
