P.E and P.E Kit

Please make sure your child has blue shorts and a white T shirt. Please add their name to the inside labels of all clothing (Uniform and P.E kit) so we do not lose garments during changing.

Library Books

Please note that the following days are allocated for children to visit the library and to change their books: Class 10: Wednesday Class 11: Thursday Class 12: Monday

Homework is sent on Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. This is based on the lessons the children have been working on during the week. If you need advice on helping your child with their homework please contact your teacher. Spellings will be set as the children learn specific spelling patterns, which need to be consolidated and practised. Reading books are changed weekly. You can write comments in their reading diaries concerning your childs reading progress at home. Your child is also encouraged to comment on the book they are reading.


We have exciting trips to look forward to. The children will be visiting a local Masjid as part of their learning and taking a trip to the British Museum.
