Tassomai – Letter to Parents/Carers & Students – Year 7

Dear Parents/Carers and Students of Year 7,

We are extremely excited to be launching an exciting new learning programme called Tassomai with Year 7 this year. The programme has proved highly successful in improving Year 11 GCSE results in the last couple of years. So what could be better than starting early? Your child will be given all their login details in Science lessons. All they have to do is quiz for at least ten minutes every day to earn merits and improve their knowledge and understanding. Please support and encourage your child to do so.
For more information go to

Thank you in advance for supporting your child!

2017 Results

We are delighted with a fantastic set of GCSE results this year. Students have worked incredibly hard to achieve some very impressive outcomes which represent great progress. We are especially pleased that 9 students were awarded the new top grade in English Literature and 3 students in Maths; this new grade 9, designed to sit above the traditional A* standard places them in the top 3% of students nationally. .

We wish the 2017 cohort all the best in the next stage of their education and congratulate them on their outstanding achievement.

I would like to thank our incredible staff who worked tirelessly to support students to achieve these results.
