Spring Term Newsletter


Spring Term Newsletter


Welcome to our Spring newsletter. As you’ll see below, students have been involved in a wide range of performance activities, external projects and masterclasses with leading industry figures – including musician/actor Toyah Willcox and playwright Tim Firth.

Thank you to all who attended our two Parents’ Evenings. We are currently finalising the plans for the end of year celebration event for Year 13 learners which will take place on 26th June.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy reading about some of this term’s highlights.
