Year 11 Group Information

Mrs C Haynes is the Learning Manager for Year 11.  Based in the Key Stage 4 office, she deals with more serious behavioural issues and academic progress referred to her by tutors and teaching staff.

Mr R Black is the Student Support Manager for Years 10 and 11.  Based in the Student Support office, he deals with all major issues regarding the education and welfare of students.  He may contact parents about issues concerning their child.
