• It is with deep sadness that we are letting you know that a very well loved student in Year 11, Jake Whiteside, died yesterday following his battle with cancer.  

  • On Tuesday 28 March 2017, the Year 12 sociology students were invited to the Mercury Theatre for a sociology conference organised by Colchester Sixth Form College.  

  • On Tuesday 21 March 2017,  the Year 13 final assembly took place. This was an opportunity to celebrate success and achievements over the last two years. 

  • Today saw the launch of our campaign for our new Student Governors for 2017/2018. Year 12 students listened to a presentation during TP3 which included hearing speeches from Scarlett Perrin and Greg Mansfield, our current Student Governors. 

  • The UK’s first national peer-to-peer coaching network for GCSE and National students.
