Inspiring a love of learning

“Inspiring a love of learning”

‘The lessons and the teachers are really good and I’ve made so many more friends since starting the sixth form’ Emily, Year 12

‘I’ve been able to achieve a level of independence but still rely on the support of staff I know when I’ve needed it’ Beth, Year 13

‘To begin with I was nervous about meeting new people but everyone has been welcoming. The subjects I chose are right for me and the teachers are helpful. Coming here was the right decision’ A new student who started in Yr 12

“I taught in several schools and I was only blessed with sons but I firmly believe that if I had a daughter I would want her to go to this school because I am aware at first hand of the dedication of all of its staff to the care and education of the girls. This school does realise that it is precious cargo that it carries.” A former teacher

"She is an enthusiastic, caring and inspirational teacher. It is her infectious enthusiasm for learning and understanding of every individual that has made her achieve such phenomenal results.

Sarah’s commitment to their pastoral care as well as their academic success is amongst the best the school has seen.  She contributes to a wide range of activities in the life of the school and community including raising thousands of pounds for charity.

Advice and Guidance from the Local Authority - How to keep your child safe online

Following some press coverage regarding concerns about some online games, the Local Authority have issued advice and guidance on how to keep your child safe online.

Online Safety - Have a conversation

A simple and effective way to get involved with your children and their lives online is through discussion.  By maintaining an open dialogue with your child and encouraging them to talk to you about their internet use parents can help children access the amazing resources the internet has to offer whilst keeping them safe online. 

Conversation starter ideas:

  1. Ask your children to tell you about the sites they like to visit and what they enjoy doing online.
  2. Ask them about how they stay safe online. What tips do they have for you, and where did they learn them? What is OK and not OK to share?
  3. Ask them if they know where to go for help, where to find the safety advice, privacy settings and how to report or block on the services they use.
  4. Encourage them to help. Perhaps they can show you how to do something better online or they might have a friend who would benefit from their help and support.
  5. Think about how you use the internet as a family. What could you do to get more out of the internet together and further enjoy your lives online?

How to check what your child is watching

  • Check the browser history on their phone/computer/tablet. Pressing Ctrl+H while the browser is open will bring up the history.
  • Windows PC: If you create an account for a child you will get the option to enable Family Safety settings. This allows you to block certain sites and get weekly reports of activity.
  • Apple Mac: You can share screens even if your child is on a different Mac computer/tablet. If you log on as an administrator on your child’s Mac you can select sharing preferences and choose Screen Sharing, before clicking on Allow Access For and adding yourself as an admin. On your own Mac, click on network to see your child’s activity.
