New Maths Homework Site

We now have a new maths homework system called HegartyMaths which is replacing MathsWatch, which we have used previously.  It allows homework to be completed on any device and has lots of resources included in it.

A letter has been sent this week to all parents/carers with more information.

People in Crisis/Collection for Refugees

On 5 May Year 8 will have a visit from someone who works in a refugee centre to talk about their work.  Students in all years have been given a list of essential items which anyone can donate to help out with this much needed work.  Items will be collected during tutor time.  See Miss Goodwin for more details.

PE Lost Property

If you have lost a piece of PE kit visit the PE office to be reunited with items which the department have collected.  Many initialled items have no full name on them so if you’ve lost some kit, see if they have it.
