How do I become a senior Student?
You have to complete an application form by having 10 sections signed off by your teachers. Your Head of House will then decide whether your application has been successful. Mrs McLardie will explain all of this in detail in an assembly in second half ofthe Spring Term when Year 11 students have begun their exams.

Their names are Emma Clements and Jack Allsopp and are both in Year 13. Emma and Jack are here to represent you so if you have any concerns or ideas about the school see your School Council representative who will pass them on. Jack and Emma meet Mr Teal and the Senior Leadership team once a month to feedback your comments.
