This year’s ICAS tests will be taking place across three weeks in August and September.
We are on our last week of ICAS tests and the time table is as follows:
Maths (Tuesday 01/09 Primary, Monday 31/08 M&S)
Spelling (Thursday 03/09 Primary, Wednesday 02/09 M&S)
Please ensure participating children arrive at school on time on those days. Middle and Secondary students will need their iPads to be fully charged.
Looking forward to seeing great results from all our participating College students.

Year 9-12 Exam Block
Exam Block is next week Monday, 7 September to Friday, 11 September. Please join us in prayer for all our Year 9 to 12 students and their families especially over this exam period:
Dear Lord, we pray for any anxious thoughts and worry to leave and that peace will fill each one of our students’ hearts and minds. We pray that all the content that has been covered over the term will come rushing back and that you will keep them focused throughout the week. We thank you Lord for each one of our precious students and their families, for who they are, the joy they bring and the gifts you have placed inside them. We ask that you be with our families, comfort them and remind them of your great love for them. We ask all of this in Jesus Christ’s name, Amen.
