2016-2017 Prelim Diet

On Wednesday 14th December all S4-S6 pupils were issued with their individual prelim timetables. A copy of the entire timetable is available to download here. It crucial that all pupils know the subject and level that they’re being presented for. Rooming and seating information will be available in the Front Hall after school on the day before each prelim.

Supported Study is available from a number of departments in the run up to the prelims and main exams should pupils wish to attend. This information is being collated centrally and will be available as soon as possible. Pupils should check with individual staff until the list is published.

Day of the Dead Themed Day

This year we are celebrating Day of the Dead – Día de Muertos!

Throughout the day staff across the school will be delivering Day of the Dead themed activities, pupils will be invited to dress up in theme with prizes for the best costumes and proceeds being donated to local charities.

The canteen has arranged for a special, one off menu which is advertised around the school and anyone purchasing items from the canteen on the day will be entered into a free prize raffle.

Photos will be available after the event on November 2nd.
