The Term Four newsletter is out now.

This year we have launched a new website, a new course selection platform, and online enrolments for the first time.  Thank you to everyone in our school community for getting on board with the new processes.

The Course Selection platform allows us to show you a lot more detail about courses, how they are linked, and what career paths they can lead to.  It is a very powerful and comprehensive platform and we can't wait to show you more of what it can offer in years to come.  The task for us is to refine our processes to make things as simple to use as possible for parents in a hurry.

You will soon receive an email with your child's courses for next year.  Our Timetabling Team has been hard at work trying to make it all work for everyone; it is a huge task.

Once you have your courses, you can view the relevant Stationery Lists here on the Financial Page of the website.
