Heads of Year

Year 7 - Mrs Robson

Year 7 is a very important year in the lives of our young people and one in which they need support and guidance.  It is my role to ensure the transition from primary through to secondary school is as smooth as possible and our students feel supported and guided through this time.  Year 7 is a milestone in any student’s education and one which should be enjoyed and looked forward to.

It is my aim to promote kindness and respect throughout the year group and promote a team ethos in which we work together to achieve whilst promoting a good working environment in order for students to succeed and excel.

My expectations are high and these are conveyed and maintained throughout our journey together in Year 7 in order to ensure that students are ready to continue their journey into Year 8.

Year 8 - Mr Britton

My standards and expectations are high within the year group.  I firmly believe that resilience, good principles, and a positive mindset will be the key to their future success.   We work hard both inside and outside of the classroom to equip the students with key Interpersonal skills; The ability to reason, negotiate, and communicate effectively.   I believe these key skills will underpin the success of these superb young people. These attributes will also play a huge role in enabling the students to work effectively with teachers, associate staff, and peers to facilitate a positive transition into sixth form and college

“A bad hour doesn’t mean it’s a bad day, there is always a way of putting it right”.
