The school is now a Chewing Gum free zone. Pupils are prohibited to bring chewing gum into the school.
Well done to all the pupils who took part in the Micro Tyco Carol singing last night in Sainsbury’s (Kingsgate). We raised a total of £407.80. An amazing effort put in by all the pupils. Many thanks to all the parents / guardians for their support as well.S4 Prelim Timetable - HEREPupils crossing roads When crossing roads near the school, could pupils please use the crossings provided on Whitemoss Road or the underpasses.
Never run across the road as it only takes an error of judgement once for something life changing to happen.Engine Idling Campaign

Our pupils, through their Pupil Forum, asked the council a number of questions and were given responses for each one.

From the bringing in of gift items, paper and shoeboxes to the painstaking job of checking the contents and writing cover labels, every bit of help has been appreciated.
It was a busy week with many pupils offering to give up their lunchtime to help with the wrapping and packing of the boxes which was lovely as often this gift of time is the hardest one to give. Almost 100 boxes were collected this morning and the Blytheswood charity were extremely grateful.Advent
