It is with great sadness that we announce Mrs Janet Jackson, one of our most long serving and loved teachers, died on Sunday 7th of February. Many of pupils and their families will have worked closely with, and known Mrs Jackson as a Science teacher, Form teacher and in her role as SENCO - helping and supporting pupils and their families. School staff and our counsellor are available to help and support pupils. There is Professional help available and information please see below.
