Great fun was had at this year’s Summer Scheme that was attended by youngsters preparing to join The National Academy in September.

Activities included the real CSI, Harry Potter Scientific experiments, sports and baking.

The CSI team gave our pupils crime scenes to detect, footprint casts to make and finger prints to take.

Harry Potter of course never failed to illuminate the labs with various colours and explosions.

The week culminated in a celebration event attended by all parents.

Pupils and parents saw a video of their escapades and gave small presentations of their activities

The homemade cakes and juice topped what was a really excellent week.

The school has extended its congratulations to students who took exams this summer.

In a statement, the school said that the results represented “improvements in all areas of exam performance and our students deserve to be proud of their achievements”.

In 2014, 68 per cnet of pupils achieved 5A*-C including English and Maths at GCSE.

And 25 per cent of pupils achieved the English Baccalaureate, 80 per cent of pupils made or exceeded expected progress from KS2 in English.
