S2 Activities Week
We launched our S2 Activities Week 2019 this week at assembly. Students were given letters to take home with details, including a payment plan: S2 Activities Week Letter. Returns are due back on Monday 8th October. If you have any queries, please contact Mr Maxton at the school.
Please note that due to the online payments system being updated, online payments to the school will not be available until 25 September. More information will be given to students next week.

New photo permission forms for under 12s will be given to students to take home. Students over 12 years of age will be completing these forms themselves next week. Please see forms below:

We would be really keen to involve parents and carers to be part of this process. We are looking for S2 parents or carers to attend a short focus group at 3pm on this day. This will be an discussion group and will last no more than 45minutes. Teas and coffees will be provided. If you would like to attend, could you please email firstname.lastname@example.org
