Newport Buses

TheNetwork Manager reported to me that there has been a lot of pushing, play fighting and generally inappropriate behaviour by students getting on the buses at the end of the day recently. He also said that one lady was knocked back into her seat. While you are still in uniform you are representing the School and should conduct yourselves accordingly. I am sure that this was an isolated incident and considering the use that the bus gets our students get very little bad feedback .

Road Safety

A member of the public has contacted the school concerned that she had to brake sharply when students walked out infront of her car while crossing the road at the end of the day. This could result in an accident occurring. Please be sensible.

Learning Pathways Evening - 29th February

Come along on February 29th and chat with subject teachers to find out more about the different courses available to you in the Sixth Form. There are over 40 Post 16 Level 2 and 3 courses available for you to choose from.


As of the beginning of the new-half term (21 Feb) canteen staff will not be able to put money into a student’s account. KS4 students will need to come to me for their three digit identity number and input it together with their cash at one of the top-up machines. Return customers will not be well received by me!
