The Y7 & Y8 Girls have been entered into the East Staffs Netball Leagues again this year where they will play matches against the secondary schools in Burton, as well as Oldfields. Fixtures start in October and run through to March.

All students are welcome to attend the sessions, there is no cost, all they need to do is collect and return a registration letter from/to the school office, bring their kit, take part and enjoy.
This year continues to build on the new form of assessment and levelling. Students have access to all the necessary information which is displayed in the changing rooms. Please talk to your child about this to enhance and assist in the embedding of the information, which in turn will support progress.
