Appointments are not necessary, just pop along and join us for a coffee and a chat.
Show My Homework (SMHW), offers a range of facilities that can only be accessed once logged on to its secure website using your personal login/password details. All of our students should have received an email to their school email address which they simply need to reply to if they would like us to reset their SMHW password.

As you will be aware, we use a voluntary biometric recognition system at the school. At the moment this is used with the administration systems for library management. In the future we wish to use a similar system for cashless catering, and paying for school trips, etc. You should have received a letter regarding this but if you haven’t you can access the letter using the link below.
We have recently added three new links to our busy website. The links are located at the top right of our homepage:
– Link to the Students’ Website
– link to your Cashless Payment Account
– link to Our Latest News Letter
