New Frog!


We have just launched our new-look Frog VLE and invite you to take a look. Visit by following the link at the top of the page.


Students can check on homework and access learning resources and a range of different curricular and extra-curricular sites; parents can check on their child's attendance, homework and behaviour and access resources to support their child's learning at home. All that, and much more to come!
