Every year the Anti-Bullying Alliance coordinate national Anti-Bullying Week; a week where children and young people, schools, parents and carers come together with one aim: to stop bullying for all.
This year we are calling on the school community to take action to stop the bullying of ALL children and young people – including disabled children and those with special educational needs – children who are significantly more likely to experience bullying in schools and the wider community.
Please take some time to view these fantastic resources, designed to offer advice and support to parents and their children.

With contributions from the English, History, Music and Art Departments this special Remembrance Event was a great success. After being drawn to pupils imaginative art work and table displays guests filled the School Hall to hear pupils read historical reflections, poems, excerpts from ‘Private Peaceful’ and some of their own creative work marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. Students, some of whom were speaking publicly for the first time, spoke confidently, clearly with good expression and often very movingly. Some pieces, such as the experience of having a father in the armed services, were particularly well received. At intervals the clear and tuneful voices of the choir treated guests to period songs such as, ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’. There were several readings from important guests including a past student, cadets and school staff. The playing of the last post by a pupil and two minutes silence brought the evening to a close with refreshments. Many appreciative comments were made by guests. All pupils involved in any way were a credit to the school.
The English Department are inviting pupils in Years 7, 8 and 9 to devote 90 minutes to writing a story on the theme of ‘A Christmas Gift’ during the week beginning 24th November. Each pupil will be seeking sponsors for their effort and all money raised will be spent on a CAFOD ‘Christmas gift’.
CAFOD reaches the parts many cannot reach such as remote villages where people get seriously ill simply for lack of clean water or die for lack of the kind of simple medicines we can buy from a chemist.
There are a range of projects pupils can fund including clean water, literacy projects, shelter, tools for farming, health training, medicines and help for those suffering from Ebola in West Africa. The exact projects will be chosen by a pupil committee of six: the winners of the most creative story in each year group plus the pupils in each year group who raise the most money.
Former students Luke Collins, Jack Palmer and Tom Hampson are brimming with pride after being presented with their bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award certificates. The team have become a credit to the school by working exceptionally hard over the past twelve months. They have demonstrated a high level of persistence and commitment to the award, completing voluntary work placements within the community, learning new skills and improving on personal fitness. Well done!
