Congratulations to Mohammed Begi who has just been accepted at Oxford University to read History and Politics. Seriously proud of you.


We are very excited about our trip to tomorrow. Pupils will be writing short stories inspired by an exhibition of Charles II’s original artwork. We are grateful to for their support.


The on-site nursery is privately run by an outstanding provider and took a year to set up. Only started in Sept, for community as well as staff who get a reduced rate. Happy to discuss details - email the Principal through our website.


Agreed - we have a nursery on site... one of the best decisions we've made. Plus we give new fathers two weeks paternity instead of the usual one - supporting dads important too :)


Want to join a school with fantastic staff morale, great training and a healthy life/work balance? We're looking for an MFL teacher and a Science teacher for Sept.

This week I was rehearsing ‘Forget You’ which I have been learning for a month. I practiced five times this week, once in my music lesson, twice during free periods and twice at home in the evenings.

Although I am confident with most of this piece, I have noticed that I often sing slightly out of tune at the end of the chorus.  In order to improve this section I just worked on that section, repeating it over and over again, slowing it down, speeding it up and recording myself and listening back until it sounded correct.    When I listened back to the recordings of myself, my awareness about which notes were out of tune was raised and I was able to identify which ones needed work.  If I had not listened back, I might have missed errors and not been able to improve them.  Once I had found the errors I worked on the small section over and over again so that I could correct just that section and ensure that I had the tuning absolutely correct without getting distracted by the rest of the song.  If I had been singing the whole way through the song, I would not have been able to make as much progress on that section.  My rehearsals this week mean that I am now confident singing the difficult section at the end of the chorus.  Although I couldn’t correct it immediately, regular practice throughout the week meant that it gradually improved.
