 Prior to half term my assembly highlighted the plight of the homeless  -  both from the point of view of people as well as animals.  A target of 834 tins of food was set  -  one tin from each student/adult in school or 25p which would then be used to buy tins.  The target was met!!!!  Over 1000 tins/packets of food was brought/bought and this will be being distributed at centres in Tameside.

Our GCSE results saw 72% of students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths.  More importantly, progress in both English and Maths was outstanding with 81% and 86% of students respectively making expected progress which is way above the national average. 

 

Congratulations to the class of 2016 who, just like team GB, have surpassed all expectations – well done!
