After School Clubs
If you’re interested in our after school clubs please ask your tutor for more information. Please note that school transport is unavailable following after school clubs.

The School has ten bikes, which are stored in an area, which is equipped for their cleaning and general maintenance. Major repairs are carried out professionally at a local cycle shop. In the interests of safety, the School also provides the students with helmets and gloves, which are compulsory requirements on rides. Students are invited to take advantage of foul-weather clothing and rucksacks, which are provided by the school.
The rides are always accompanied by a qualified Off-Road Leader who is assisted by another member of staff. All rides are inspected by the Leader in advance to determine their suitability. A variety of trails from which to choose have been developed in SE Hants and West Sussex. This year, we have been able to enjoy not only the colourful foliage, which we take for granted in this part of the country, but also an unusual amount of wildlife, especially the many deer which the students have spotted on the rides. Mountain biking is not all blood, sweat and tears!
The season for Mountain Biking runs from March to late November, throughout which the students have the opportunity to ride once every three or four weeks.
What do I do if my child is too ill to attend school?
Call the main school phone number 02394 006226 and select the absence line (option 1).
What do I do if I want to take my child on holiday during term time?
Students who take holidays during term time would be reported as unauthorised absence. If you still need to take them out due to exceptional circumstances then please complete an Exceptional Circumstances holiday form which is available from the school office.

Worried about leaving your child alone? NSPCC have help and advise available. Take a look at their website here.
Network Rail Due to the very high level of trespassing on the tracks by young people in your local area, Network Rail in partnership with Learn Live are working to help raise awareness to students across the UK educating them about the dangers of the train tracks through interactive digital delivery. Please see the this video for more information.
The YoungMinds Parents Helpline, Webchat and Email provide support and help for parents and carers worried about their child’s mental health and wellbeing.
Online and Social Media
With regular reports of children being targeted or groomed by adults via social media or other internet channels, we would like to remind parents of the critical importance of taking steps they can take to reduce the risk of their children becoming vulnerable to this behaviour.
Please do take the time to set up robust parental controls on devices and ensure that you set the passwords and codes and keep this confidential, so that only you know them.
In the unfortunate circumstance that your child receives inappropriate messages or images via social media, please report this instantly to the Police on the non-emergency 101 number.
There is some helpful advice relating to this on Hampshire County Council’s website
You may find it helpful for your children to be aware of and to have viewed the ‘Think u know’ website
Helpful advice is also available from the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) website
Aside from the risk of exploitation, it is unfortunate in this day and age that content exists on social media that would be inappropriate, and potentially harmful, for children to view.
If you or your children receive images or videos on Snapchat, Instagram, Whatsapp or via any other social media featuring people that are naked or are sexual in nature, these should be deleted immediately and reported to the Police on the non-emergency 101 telephone number. Many people are still unaware that showing or sharing such images or videos with others could mean they are committing a crime. However, if a genuine mistake is made, it would be treated as such by the Police.
There is a wealth of information available for parents. Please see some suggested reading below.
