As a Head of Year, it is my job to ensure that all students have the opportunity to reach their full potential in a safe and positive learning environment, where students are supported so that they thrive physically, emotionally and socially.

I am hoping that we manage to have a much more stable learning year which will allow students to experience what secondary school is like. I aim to make up for as many missed opportunities as possible and believe that if we all work together we can have a very successful year.
