We’re saying ‘thank you’ to our hard working students in a slightly different way this week, with the start of a regular series of ‘Friday Treats’.

Each week we’ll invite a group of students for a hot chocolate and a pastry in Cafe Studio during Friday morning registration.

It’s just a small way to recognise the positive impact students are having in their lessons.

We’re starting with the Year 11 students in the ‘Top 25’ for ‘Positives’ and next time we’ll invite the Year 10 students.

But week by week we’ll also aim to find the widest range of students whose behaviour in lessons is not only boosting their personal progress – and helping their classmates, too.
