New Campus Update
Do keep an eye out for a mailing we’ve sent to you in the post, which includes more information on our new campus plans.
Date for your diary:  New Campus Information Event on Friday 23 February from 15:00 to 19:00 in the Junior Boys Sports Hall mezzanine.  It is the perfect opportunity for parents to find out more about the campus and ask any questions.
Please register your support here for the new campus if haven’t done so yet and wish to do so.

School Lunches - Price Increase
After half term, the price of our main meals (main course and dessert) will increase by 20p.  A Junior Meal will rise from £2.70 to £2.90 and a Senior Meal from £3.30 to £3.50. Our prices have remained the same since Autumn 2013 and this increase is due to food industry price increases.
Whatuni visit
The Whatuni website and App help students to compare the best university & degree courses for free. They show degree course rankings, university reviews, course details and university profiles to help students to decide which university to attend. Whatuni has information on over 61000 courses and holds over 100 000 student reviews. They also hold information on accommodation and living costs at various universities. As well as using the course comparison tool, you can also order a university prospectus or contact universities directly.  All university Open Days are also listed to make planning for visits easier. The App includes a timeline for applications and it will send notifications so you will never miss a deadline.

The HERB research bot allows you to use your interests to match you to suitable courses, or you can search courses by the industry you are interested in, or by your A levels and which courses would suit someone with your A level profile. You can also look at how courses are assessed, the student dropout rate and graduate employment rates. It is a very useful tool and is a must for Year 12. Even Mrs Rogers has managed to upload the App so there are no excuses for the students!
