Show My Homework
We are aware that a small number of students are currently unable to access the homework that has been set by their teachers on SMHW. All teachers are aware and the issue is being resolved. Affected students are still able to view their homework tasks by using the whole-school SMHW calendar. They should filter the calendar by selecting either their teacher or their teaching group.

Science trip to Sky Skills Studio
This trip has proved extremely popular with year 7 students and unfortunately the trip is now full and we cannot accept any more students. Form tutors and Heads of house have been issued with a list of names of those students that have secured a place. Please can students double check with these members of staff in unsure.
It is hoped that should the trip prove to be an enjoyable and worthwhile experience the school will run an additional trip in the future to accommodate those that have been unfortunate in missing out on a place.

Message from the Headteacher
You may be aware, from recent newspaper articles, that a number of members of our governing body have resigned. I would like to reassure you that this will not affect the day to day running of the school and school life for all of our children will continue to be of a high quality.
School governors are an important part of the school even though most parents and students remain unaware of the work they do. Although a voluntary role, it is a difficult and complex job, and we thank the governors who have recently departed for their service.
The next step for our school is to appoint an interim Chair of Trust. My team and I will be working with Jennifer Bexon-Smith, the Regional Schools Commissioner for the East Midlands to complete this task as soon as possible. As soon as the new Chair of Trust is appointed, we will introduce them to you.
Although the timing of this falls in one of the busiest terms, especially for our students undertaking examinations, we will continue to support all of our students with achieving their aspirations and enjoying school life.
I will keep the whole community informed as we go through the process of securing a new Chair of John Port Trust who will support and spearhead leading the school into what we realise are exciting times.
