DfE Performance Tables—Provisional

The provisional Key Stage 4 performance tables were released this week. Our data can be found at:

We hope that our already pleasing +0.20 Progress 8 score will improve in the final table which will include a significant number of successful remarks and that the final performance tables will rate our performance as above average.

Alban Way Petition

The Alban Way provides an excellent cycle and footpath away from the dangers of the roads. However, it has been the site of a number of violent or criminal incidents in the last year. I would, therefore, like to bring to your attention to a petition to request more protection along the Alban Way. Click here to sign the Alban Way Petition

Jennings Road Parking Restrictions

We have been made aware that St Albans District council will be introducing parking restrictions along Jennings Road (which runs along the rear of the school) at some point in November or December. This will affect both Sixth Form student parking and parents. I am afraid that we are as yet unaware of the precise nature of these restrictions.

Term Dates for 2019/2020

Headmaster’s Commendation

This week’s Headmaster’s commendations are awarded to Mahim Nosor; Sam Mistry; Dylan Labuda and Kieran McCarthy as they have just had their first test on the first 3 units of their A level course and done exceptionally well.

Also Jack Brenson for being an ambassador to the school stopping traffic to help a frightened horse that was in the road.

And finally, to Jamie Golding who has worked above and beyond expectations in Geography classwork.
