Well done to all of the student who gained fantastic achievements of the past year and received certificates, trophies and special prizes for all of the efforts. Hard work really does pay off! Way to go!

Breaking News! Sutton School has a New School Logo... #parenthub

Out with the old, in with the new! Logo and school name change…

School Logo Condensed FINAL - Copy.png

Over the next few weeks you will start to notice new school branding on badges, letters and a whole host of other places. The school will be known as Sutton School from this point onward. 

The new logo keeps with the colour blue as a theme and depicts 3 figures representing the school and parents/carers supporting a central figure representing the pupil.

If you are looking to or have purchased a PE kit for September, you may receive the old logo which will be used until stocks are exhausted, old or new branded PE kit is acceptable. You do not need to buy new PE kit simply because the logo has changed.

If you have any further questions please contact the school office 01384 818670.

Pizza Hut Trip #parenthub

On Tuesday, 22nd May 2019 a group of Year 11 pupils had the opportunity to have lunch at Pizza Hut, Merry Hill!

We all enjoyed munching on unlimited pizza and salad. It was an extremely social event as you will see from the pictures.

In assembly our pupils were treated to a visit from author E. R. Reilly who talked about his three books British Spy Club, Tall Tales and One boy, One dream, One club. 

Eamonn talked to our pupils about how he writes books, giving them 'top tips' for writing stories of their own and gave them all a challenge for the next story they write. Pupils who bought books had the privilege of a signed copy which is coming home with them today!

Have a look at Eamonn’s website for updates on his new releases, where you can read extracts from the books and see videos of Eamonn teaching children to write stories. https://er-reilly.co.uk Facebook E.R Reilly or Twitter @ERReillybooks


Duke of Edinburgh's Award Tent Practice #parenthub

Year 10 pupils prepare for their expedition in June by getting to grips with their tents. After a few odd shaped attempts we all managed to put our tents up. Putting them back in their carry bags proved a bit more of a challenge. Well done! Parents and carers of the group should have recieved a letter yesterday inviting you to a meeting after school at 3.30pm on Tuesday 4th June to discuss the expedition arrangements. You should also have recieved a parenthub copy of the letter. Please be aware that this is for the first group only, not the whole of year 10.
