    This week: Martin Deegan, Processions

    Martin Deegan

    It is with great sadness that I must announce the death of Martin Deegan. Martin worked with us from 2002 - 2016 as a teaching assistant. During his time with us, he worked with many students to make learning more accessible to them. He had a calm, approachable personality, and students felt very well-supported by him both in lessons and around the school. He was an excellent colleague; teachers and the whole learning support team found him thoughtful, kind and gentle in his work with vulnerable young people.

    A very talented drummer, Martin also ran percussion workshops for students and inspired many to see all kinds of drumming as something that was highly enjoyable and uplifting to the spirits.

    Students, staff and the families of students with whom he worked are saddened by this loss.

    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.


    PROCESSIONS - a mass artwork to celebrate 100 years of women having the vote.

    We have celebrated the 100th anniversary of women gaining the vote with a display in our foyer, assemblies and quizzes during the Spring Term. On 10th June there’s an opportunity to take part in a mass artwork in recognition of the extraordinary campaign by the suffragettes to gain equality for women.
