Calling all Yr11school leavers! If you would like information about applying for stewarding jobs at football matches (£8.25 an hour stewarding at Macclesfield, Salford, Bury, Oldham and other places) message this page.
Embarrassing some pupils. Losing permission slips, stopping some pupils attending trip out to pictures. Then says they can go on another day with people they dont know.
Nominate our school for us to be in with a chance of winning £5,000 for the school library.

My child forgot his dinner money so i came straight back and handed it over at reception. Reception said they would email the form tutor and inform my child to collect it. My child came home and had no dinner that day.

I walked in the next day to reception and they made an excuse that they did email but tutor didnt inform my child. Upon looking where my childs dinner money was there was at least 7 envelopes with childrens dinner money in not given to the children from that day.

How do you expect the children to learn to communicate when the school itself cannot within its walls.

Pandemic Poetry - Futures of Hope

We're truly honoured to be announcing our brand new poetry competition. The pandemic has been hard on everyone, especially children and young adults. We want to nurture a safe environment for poets to create something beautiful and be a part of something huge...

So we created Pandemic Poetry. There is no line limit and entries can be written in any format. Our aim is to help the younger generation look towards their futures with hope instead of apprehension.

Submissions are open now and you can find out more below. Good luck, and be hopeful!

Dear school children,

When it’s bedtime tonight and you’re lying in bed
When excitement and worries all dance in your head
Remember your teachers all plan and prepare
To welcome you back so please know that we care ❤️

Your classrooms are clean and your teachers are ready
Don’t worry, don’t panic.....We’ll all take it steady

Don’t worry about the things you can’t recall
We’re going to help you remember them all!

So come to school happy with a smile on your face
We’re not going to rush you,
Just a slow, careful pace.

And I promise you all that when this week ends
You’ll all be relieved to be back with your friends.

So all give yourselves a big pat on the back.
Tomorrow, we’re starting to get back on track ❤️

Happy World Book Day.

Reading is a fundamental part of learning and can transport you to places without you having to move from your seat. Reading allows you to experience and understand things you might not think possible.

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.

Today in English you will be taking part in activities around books and reading. Here is our GAA Virtual Library...sit back, read and learn... choose from an audible book, an e-book or an extract. There is something for everyone. Let's know what you are reading.
