Hi, do you know how many started in yr 8 this year? Just wondering if there’s a big intake or just a few. 


It was only a couple joined the current year 8 this year. They settled really quickly though. I think they get used to people coming and going though, it’s part of vocational school life, even in such small year groups.

Hi Guys. I’ve been in contact with the school and they are definitely simplifying the uniform but it hasn’t been finalised yet. They are redoing the parent’s handbook so everyone just has to wait until it’s ready to be sent out. 
hope that helps. 

Thank you my DD is starting year 7 in September and I am feeling slightly panicked not knowing what they need

Last year the most helpful thing for our new starters was to have group chat with the current yr7,s they were able to tell them everything they needed & make them feel part of the family at the same time. I am sure we could arrange something like this for this year, my DD is current yr7 as is @Calea’s so if you wanted to Do this we could arrange xx

That sounds like a good idea. Is there a list of things they need to board

Just wondering if anyone did anything special to let their child know they had a place?  Dd will be starting yr 8 in September and we haven’t told her yet!

OMG, how have you kept that a secret. We printed the letter out and recorded her opening it

It’s so odd not having had a proper open day. How many are in each year please? How many boarders?


In the current y8 there are 20 students at the moment and 12 are boarders (of our counting is correct!).
