NUT Strike
You may be aware that the National Union of Teachers has voted to take industrial action on Tuesday 5th July.

At present the school will remain fully open.  If the situation changes, I will notify you as soon as possible.

HRS Term Time Dates
It has been brought to our attention that if you Google ‘HRS school term dates’ the search engine takes you to a website that lists term dates for lots of schools throughout the country.  We have no involvement whatsoever with this website and the dates are incorrect so if you do need to check our term time dates please do so by looking on our school website.

Year 10 French/Spanish Coursework
On either Monday 4th July or Tuesday 5th July Year 10 students will be completing a Science ISA (assessment).  In addition, on the ‘other’ day, they will be starting their final piece of French/Spanish coursework for this academic year, which will be examined the following week.

Please could parents confirm with students that they are aware of the arrangements for both assessments since both are actual GCSE exams.   Text books, exercise books and dictionaries will be needed for the MFL assessment and students will need to prepare their work at home before the final assessment – week beginning Mon 11th July. Thank you.Mrs N Graves – Head of MFL
