The surrounding roads are clear but please exercise extreme caution when walking on the pavements and entering the school site. Students are permitted to wear footwear appropriate for the icy conditions. The car park is particularly icy so try to avoid driving in to school.

We are open today but to give the site team additional time to grit the worst affected areas we will be operating a late start. Students will be expected in to SAM at 9:30am. Any student arriving early may go to the school canteen.

We hope to be in a position to open as normal tomorrow. However, temps are expected to drop significantly overnight so please exercise extreme caution when travelling to school. We will assess conditions in the morning and provide an update by 7am.

Year 11 Celebration Evening - Class of 2017

The Class of 2017 gathered together on the evening of Wednesday 22 November 2017 for an evening of celebration. The awards for excellence in subject areas were presentedby Mr Anthony Lander who gave an animated and entertaining speech about approaching all aspects of life without prejudice and reminded us of the importance of realising and seeking out dreams. 

Appointed a consultant in 1997 at the time of the BBC’s flagship documentary series ‘Children’s Hospital’, Mr Lander is currently Clinical Director at Birmingham Children's Hospital, one of the biggest centres in the UK for surgery in babies, infants and children. He is involved in the national teaching of paediatric surgery trainees both here and abroad.  Mr Lander very generously gave up his time to also meet with our current cohort of Year 11 Triple Scientists for a lesson exploring the application of science and maths in modern medicine.  Students were encouraged to consider how interlinked all three sciences are with one other and the importance of maths underpinning research and analysis.

We were also very honoured that Mr Geraint Jenkins was able to be in attendance at the Celebration Evening to present the annual Jenkins' Award in recognition of outstanding achievement.

Caitlin Etheridge entertained us with her stunning rendition of 'On My Own' from Les Miserables, before each student was presented with a de Stafford Scroll prior to collecting their GCSE examination certificates.  Head Girl, Jess Owen and Head Boy, Tom Ford, expressed our appreciation and, on behalf of the school community, offered the vote of thanks to our guests,

Thank you to all the parents, carers, staff and past students who attended and helped make the evening so memorable and special.
