SKI TRIP 2020
We are proposing to organise a ski trip in February 2020 to the resort of Folgaria in Italy.

The trip is offered to students who are currently in Years 7, 8 and 9.
More information is available via the letter below.
At this time of year, students may often feel an increase in stress and pressure as exams get closer. Though we can never eliminate stress we always try to help students to manage this. Please follow the link to an excellent guide that may help your son and daughter during this time.

We wish to address the current issue prevalent on the news regarding the danger of young people accessing the 'MOMO Challenge' through social media. The challenge relates to a YouTube video, which encourages children to take part in menacing tasks, which get worse as the video continues. It encourages children to act very dangerously and promotes self-harm and even suicide. It also actively discourages the children from talking to their parents or other adults about the video.
We promote e-safety through our curriculum and actively discourage students from accessing inappropriate content. However, this can be very difficult outside of school. The organisation for National Online Safety has released a document that outlines the danger of the challenge and offeres advice to parents to help keep their child safe.
What parents need to know about The Momo Challenge There have been recent reports in nearly every major news channel about 'Momo'. To respond to this, we have created a balanced guide which provides parents and
STUDENT LEADERSHIP TRIP To recognise their hard work and commitment so far, we organised a free of charge visit to the Houses of Parliament for members of the student leadership team on Monday, as both a reward and to improve their knowledge and understanding of how democracy and government works.
This visit begin with an awe-inspiring tour of the Houses of Parliament, to introduce the concepts of democracy and representation, together with the essential vocabulary students will need to talk about parliament. Some students also got to either visit the Commons and Lords Chamber itself or see the Speaker’s precession into the chamber. They then took part in a ‘Debating’ workshop and at the end of the day and formed their own mock Bill that they then practiced to take through the processes of Parliament to turn it into a law.
They lastly met Member of Parliament for Cannock Chase Amanda Milling, of whom they then have a question and answer session with over a number of different topics they were interested in. Students conducted themselves impeccably and we hope to one day to visit one of our pupils in their future role within the Houses of Parliament, which each and every pupil has the ambition and drive to achieve.
The trip also benefited our A Level Politics students who are the first to be taking part in this exciting new A Level within the sixth form. ... See MoreSee Less
