PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE - 8th February 2018

I wonder how you spent the ‘snow days’ last week. Were you able to get into work? Did you and your car get stuck on the A38? Were you prepared for the ‘Beast from the East’ and ‘Storm Emma’? I was the last person to leave the school last Wednesday and had to park a considerable distance from my house in Thurlestone, then attempt to walk home (‘slip and slide home’ would be more appropriate). My sons had a great time sledging on Thursday and I had quite a task getting them to focus on school-related study on Friday!

With many students preparing for external examinations, my staff and I are heightening our awareness of those who may be experiencing anxiety and stress  during this critical time. Balancing mock exams, revision and sufficient relaxation can be a difficult feat, so I am indebted to our amazing staff who go beyond expectations to monitor the wellbeing of our students. In our Year 11 curriculum, we have built in individual Study Support sessions, and will also be hosting free yoga sessions for Years 11 and 13 in the lead-up to exams. If you feel that your child needs a little extra support at this stage, please don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give me a call.......Read More

Student benefits from attending the Atrium

  • Modern learning environment that stimulates creativity and collaboration. Atrium’s state-of-the-art facilities are accessed via a Atrium Studio Schooldynamic mix of break-out spaces and studio rooms.   Shared facilities with South Dartmoor Community College, plus full use of Ashmoor Sports Centre, provide students with everything they need to make the most of their opportunities.  
  • Small class sizes.
  • Academic rigour (10 GCSEs at Key Stage 4, and a full suite of A levels and industry relevant Level 3 qualifications at Key Stage 5).
  • Authentic and meaningful work experience opportunities.
  • The extended school day runs until 5.30 pm.  This provides students with the opportunity to access support with their home-learning from personal coaches, intervention from subject specialists, and an enrichment programme that includes sporting activities, further qualifications (eg GCSE Mandarin), clubs and practical workshops.
