Year 10 enjoy Speedy Options Day

On Wednesday 5th February Year 10 pupils had the opportunity to talk to Year 12 and 6th Form pupils about the subjects available to them at Key Stage 4. They received information about subjects and progression to 6th form and careers. They also received an options booklet and information on their pathways. Please remember that Year 10 Parent Interviews are on Monday 10th February at 2.45.  We will be happy to answer any questions you may have then.

 

Changes to Lunctimes in the Canteen

Following a study by members of the school council we are changing arrangements for lunch in the cantee.   The Canteens are now named 1 + 2. Canteen 1 is the old hot food canteen and Canteen 2 is the sandwich / salad bar canteen.

The difference is that Canteen 2 along with sandwiches / salads, will now have a selection of Panini’s, burgers etc as well.  This will allow more children to access this side and lessen the queue time in Canteen 1.

The menus for each canteen are shown below:
