Parents of Year 8 students are invited to come and discuss your child's progress this year. Students will need to make appointments with their teachers and record the times in their student planner. So that everyone gets the opportunity to meet as many teachers as possible, each appointment will be for five minutes.
Letters have been sent home with students (see the links below) and we look forward to meeting with you.
Students have also been issued with letters and forms regarding Subject Options in Year 9. The parents' evenings will provide an oppoprtunity to discuss subject choices with teachers. Please return completed Option Forms to Form Tutors by Friday 2nd May.

On Thursday 20th March, the Music Department held their Spring Gala Concert. Big Band’s Little Brother started proceedings with a rocking performance of ‘Rock Around The Clock’. The ‘Youth Chorus’ danced and sung their hearts out to ‘The Cup Song’, ‘Dynamite’ and ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’, whilst Elizabeth Kinrade stunned the audience by singing her own composition ‘Love You More’.
The high standard of music continued after the interval, with Schumann’s ‘Piano quintet in Eb major’ in contrast to an arrangement based on the music of ‘Lady Gaga’ from our Brass Quintet. The evening was rounded off by superb performances from the school’s senior ensembles, ‘Encore Chorus’, ‘Anacrusis’ and ‘Ousedale Concert Orchestra’ performing a range of music from ‘Somebody to Love’ by Queen to ‘Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves’ Theme.
Our thanks goes to all students who worked and rehearsed so hard to put on such a special evening, and to all parents who supported the event.
