  Information 
  Vaccinations 
This is for parents/carers of any pupils in Year 8,  if they have not previously completed a form and would like their child to receive their first vaccination when the nursing team visit the schools again in the Spring Term.
 
From September 2019 the HPV vaccine will be offered to all girls and boys in school Year 8. This is because the evidence clearly indicates that the HPV vaccine helps protect both boys and girls from developing HPV-related cancers later in life such as: cervical cancer, some mouth and throat cancers and some cancers of the anus and genital areas.
 
We are now inviting parents / guardians of children born between 1st September 2006 and 31st August 2007 to register their consent for the vaccination. We will be arranging to see all consenting Year 8 girls and all consenting Year 8 boys in the Spring Term.
 
The online consent link for the HPV vaccinations  is now re-open with a closing date of 12th  January 2020.

  Road Disruptions 
We have received information from Balfour Beatty with regards to some possible disruptions to local roads during the work on the Forder Valley Link Road:
 
  • Blunts Lane is now closed to vehicles until the project is complete, the diversion is along Miller Way.  There is a pedestrian diversion in place which is along Novorossiysk Road.
  • Starting 30 September for 5 days we will be carrying out some trial holes at the bottom of Freshford Walk where it joins Forder Valley Road.  Pedestrian access will continue to be maintained throughout this time and there will be no impact to the traffic lanes.

  Mt Etna trip 

Our students during October enjoyed a visit to the beautiful Sicily in Italy. This is what happened the first night they landed...

  

"Enjoying hotel hospitality last night & sun rising over Italian Mainland this morning! Catching ferries to Lipari & Vulcano islands for the fume-roles, thermal springs & mud baths!"

  
 
 
 
  Poetry Week '19 
To celebrate National Poetry Day on 4th October 2019 all year 7 students took part in a special library lesson. This year’s theme was ‘Truth’ and students enjoyed finding out about truth poems and poets as well as discovering some unusual truths (and lies!) about their fellow students.
 
In addition to the library activities, we were delighted to welcome Keisha-Louise Sparks as our visiting poet. Keisha-Louise is a former student of Tor Bridge High and has recently had her first collection of poetry published.
 
During workshops to students in years 7, 8 and 10 she performed some of her poems and supporting the students to produce their own poetry. Keisha-Louise talked with our students about her inspiration behind her poetry and encouraged them to open up and write truth poems about themselves.
 
We can’t wait to read the student entries to this year’s competition. The truth is, we have some budding poets!!
