As the oldest year group in the school your son will act as a role model to the student body and will be expected to set a very high standard not only for him but for the rest of the school in terms of conduct and attitude towards learning.
This year will continue to provide many opportunities for your son to not only be an active member in the school community but to be a leader in the school community.

In order for your son to achieve his full potential we all must take an active interest in his education and reinforce the importance of managing his time appropriately.
Enquiries relating to your son’s progress and attainment should be directed towards his form tutor, who will remain the first point of contact for information throughout this year. We regard timely and accurate home/school communication as crucial to your son’s continued success in Year 11, and appreciate the ongoing support you provide as parents or carers.
