We would like to advise parents to, if possible, walk to our Open Evening on Wednesday 26 September from 7 pm. If travel by car is essential, please allow plenty of time as there could be congestion in the area due to the start of the Bridgwater Fair and on-going roadworks on Durleigh Road. Access to Durleigh Road is possible via Woodbury Road and Oakfield Road. There will be limited parking available on the school site, but please be patient and courteous as you arrive so that the area is safe for everyone. There may be parking available in surrounding streets.
Thank you for your co-operation.

To finish off the week, students in Year 9 were treated to the educational drama performance 'Gemma's Wardrobe' from Solomon Theatre
Based on a true story, Gemma, feeling under pressure and overwhelmed, starts to slip under the negative influence of her ‘bad boy’ classmate, and via social media all his friends. This leads to experimenting with drugs – first alcohol and then mephedrone & cannabis.
Students observed Gemma’s journey and in doing so learned to discern between supportive and destructive relationships. It is in the workshop that they also identified key factors that impact on their own self-esteem.
Year 9 student Mackenzie said "The stories about personal experiences made it feel real and relatable as it was performed by young adults". Noah (9T) continued "I found it intriging and the message was really important to learn about". "The workshop brought up what true friendship is and I learnt lots about peer pressure and how to make the right decisions" added Corina (9S).
Many thanks to all of the actors and staff involved with the performance. Our students were brilliantly behaved and really benefited from this important message.
