Vaccinations will take place on Monday 27th February.  If you have lost your form you will be able to self consent on the day.  It is very important that you receive this vaccination as colleges and universities are now stating that you will not be allocated a place if you don’t have all your vaccinations up to date.

Northumberland Theatre company visit

On Thursday 2nd February 2017 some of our s1 and s2 pupils had the fantastic opportunity to work with Northumberland Theatre company! The touring professionals held two workshops, “Romeo and Juliet” with Mrs McGinnis’ s1 class and “A Midsummer’s Night Dream” with Mrs Collins’ s2 class. Pupils heard scenes from Shakespeare being performed, gained knowledge about Shakespeare and the time in which his plays were first seen and gained fantastic understanding of characters and events. Pupils were a credit to their teachers and to the school and volunteered answers and participation.
