We were delighted to receive the prestigious Leading Parent Partnership Award for the third consecutive time. Assessor feedback included, ‘Parents have very high levels of satisfaction with the school. They feel that it supports them and their children in a huge variety of way.’ Sincere thanks to the parents & carers they interviewed.

Feedback from those attending Year 11 & 13 Prize-giving was very positive. Particular thanks to our guest speaker Jon Bradbury, our Head Boy from 1988 – 1989.

Recent and upcoming musical endeavours include the Spring Concert (which featured fabulous farewell performances from Year 13 students), the Hagley Music Festival and the Summer Concert. Thanks go to Mr Raggett, Mrs Orr and Mrs Morton for their support. Staff thanks also to Mr Kilmartin and Mrs Gale who led the Berlin visit.

Some outstanding students include Taylor Gibson, Ellie-Jai Bateman, Gunvir Dhillon and Emma Warne who have received awards for high quality curricular work while Tom Stephens, Millie Hughes, Molly Ashen and Rohan Chelvarajeh-Lopez represented us superbly at Maths Challenge at Malvern College.

Students from five schools joined us for the fifth annual Year 10 Luke Chapman Trophy in April. The tournament began with a minute’s silence and saw high quality rugby and an outstanding spirit throughout.
