Coffee afternoons

This week we held coffee afternoons for Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 and a coffee morning for year 11. This was a fantastic opportunity for parents to see their child’s work, discuss progress and any concerns they may have. It was delightful to see family members attending and we hope this grows as the year progresses. Thank you to everyone who attended.

Knife crime awarensess

On Thursday 8th October our year 9 pupils were paid a visit by two special guest speakers PC Pedley & Alison Cope the mother of Depz Man AKA Josh Ribera who tragically lost his life in September 2013.

The guest speakers talked about knife crime and the consequences of using knives. The boys were shown videos which related to the topic and Alison talked to the boys about the events on the night of her sons stabbing.

PC Pedley talked in detail about the consequences of carrying knifes and gave them real life scenarios to think about. The boys engaged well with this and asked lots of questions. The behaviour was impeccable throughout and after the intervention the mood was really positive.

It was great to see the students show compassion towards Alison for the loss of her son by sharing some kind words. At the end of the session PC Pedley said that “The boys should be proud of themselves”
