Alumni Reunion Saturday 15 June 2019 - 12.30 - 5.00pm.
Parents of students who are also alumni of the school, are warmly invited to attend our annual alumni reunion, for a full buffet lunch with wine, refreshments and afternoon tea. There will be tours led by our Year 10 Student Leadership team, and the GCSE and A Level Art Exhibition will also be open for a tour.
Tickets for parents can be purchased using your existing Wisepay login here. All alumni are welcome, but leavers celebrating their anniversary of leaving are especially welcome. This year our groups are leavers of 2009, 1999, 1989, 1979 etc (this would be the year you would have left Year 13, so if you left in Year 11, add two years to ensure you come with your peers!).
If you are an alumna, and are not in touch with our alumni office, you can update your details on our online form, or email our Alumni Officer, Melissa Santiago-Val, for more details.
Thursday 14 March 12-1pm - Laura Bates, author - for Year 9 - Year 13 students and parents.
"Everyday sexism, feminism and social media in schools."
Watch the event trailer here!
With an interview panel led by our 6th form students, author Laura Bates, who set up The Everyday Sexism Project, will be discussing her new book 'The Burning' aimed at young adults Yr9 to U6.
Although fiction, it is based on real life experiences of women, and looks at negative consequences around photo sharing on social media.
Alongside the story of how a teenager copes with negative photo sharing, Laura uses a literary device of famous witch-hunts in Scotland during the 17th century. The book explores whether we have changed our attitudes to victim blaming and shaming in 400 years. There will be a Q&A, and this event is a ticketed event for parents and students.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase in advance and more details will follow. Venue will be confirmed nearer the time.
