Charges for School Activities
Non-residential activities which are linked to the curriculum eg field trips are free of charge, though parents will be encouraged to make voluntary contributions to help cover the costs.
Where musical instrument tuition is requested by parents and provided by specialist tutors, parents pay part of the costs while the School provides a subsidy of up to 33%.
Parents are asked to pay part of the cost of materials and ingredients used by students for practical design courses where they may keep the finished products. During Years 7 to 9, the costs associated with Technology and Textiles products are combined as a single annual charge. Again, financial support can be requested if there are difficulties. All students are expected to bring the necessary ingredients for Food lessons.
Parents are not charged the fees for GCSE entries agreed by both School and parents. They may be charged for entries requested by parents against the School’s recommendation, and for entries ‘wasted’ because a student fails to complete the examination requirements without good cause or does not turn up for the examination.

Year 11 Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
We would like to invite parents of all Year 9 students to come into school on Wednesday 23 January at 7pm to attend the GCSE Guided Choices Evening. The evening provides an opportunity for you to find out more about the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the subjects that are part of it. Subject teachers and the Careers Advisers will be attending to answer your questions and offer advice. We look forward to seeing you.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Bev Kershaw on 01246 273985 or by email: email@example.com.
