I am writing to you about some key information regarding English and mathematics and how you can further support at home with these two core subjects as we move in to final preparations for your son/daughter’s GCSE exams.
As you know, it is vital that students do well in these two subjects so that they are well prepared for their next stage post Year 11. All Sixth Forms, Apprenticeships and Colleges will all ask for your child’s grades in English and mathematics and as an academy we want to ensure that students are fully supported to do their best in these two areas.

Dear Parents and Carers
The prices of our food and drinks in the canteen have not been increased since September 2017. We constantly work very hard to manage the cost increases of our ingredients to minimise the impact of this on our sales prices. However ingredient prices have risen and we are no longer able to absorb these. Therefore we have reviewed the prices and will be increasing the price of a limited number of items by 5p after the February half term to reflect these increased costs.
The items which are increasing by 5p are baguettes, wraps, pizzinis, main meal, tray bakes and flavoured milk and water.
Although the price of the main meal has been increased by 5p we have held the meal deal (main meal and desert / tray bake) at £2.30.
We have held prices for a range of healthy items, such as salads and water.
We hope you will appreciate our efforts to keep prices constant and the difficult decision we have had to come to.
Please see below for a recap from our Year 11 Planning for Success evening to assist over the Christmas break. There are loads of great tips in the presentation and also some amazing subject specific and general revision resources proven to have impact that can be obtained by accessing these links. Students will need to use their WLA Google log ins to view and print the resources.
