There will also be a session for year 12s run by Kirrilie Smout from Psychology in Education. This will be held at the college and the exact date will be known within the next few weeks. The purpose of this session is to assist students deal with the final weeks of their studies. The last minute nerves, exam preparation and how to see their way through the final ‘workload’ which can seem daunting.

Sausage Sizzle  - there will be another one this term, exact date to be announced. Last terms was much fun, with music dancing, table tennis and Uno (making a return!) The photos are up on the website and our Facebook page.

This newsletter will be updated during the term and I hope all students enjoy the next term. Also a reminder that if any parents wish to contact please feel free to do so.
