Schoolcomms & Online Payments
As parents/carers will be aware, we are now using Schoolcomms to send out school communications via email and text message.
In addition, Schoolcomms has the facility to enable parents/carers to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. Parents/carers will also be able to view school meal balances and purchases, and top up school meals money at any time.
To set up online payments, you will need to use the website to complete the initial setup; click the icon above to go to the School Gateway website. If you are unable to log in, it may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school and we will update the details on our system.

Year 13 Leavers' Assembly
On Friday 27 May 2016 we said goodbye to the Year 13s with our traditional leavers assembly. Sixth Form students came in fancy dress ranging from members of Leicester City’s Premier League Champions to Marvel's Silver Surfer! Prizes were awarded and we watched a video created by the students. The video featured funny clips, photographs and a rap video. It was a lovely occasion to say goodbye and Sixth Form students made a great effort with their costumes! We wish all the Year 13s good luck in the forthcoming exams and in the future.
