The dates of the Teacher Assessments have all been added to SIMS Calendar and can be viewed in the SIMS Parent App. If you would like to sign up to SIMS Parent, please email

Covid Testing at Home

Test at Home, Reduce the Spread

The cycle of Covid testing in school is now complete. Students should now continue testing twice weekly with home testing kits provided by school. We advise that the home test is completed on Sunday evening before returning to school and one evening mid-week, ie, Wednesday or Thursday. The instructions for doing the test and registering the result are all provided in the kit.

Please report to school the results of each test by clicking on the red button above (you also need to report results on the website or on the NHS app).

If a child tests positive, please inform school (using the form above), stay at home and self-isolate.

Around 1 in 3 individuals with COVID-19 do not display symptoms. Home testing will help catch those showing no symptoms and to break the chain of transmission: Test at Home, Reduce the Spread.

Free test kits for all the family (with children of school age) can be collected from Duke Street Car Park, Bulwell NG6 8EZ between 1pm and 8pm Monday to Sunday.


Students in all years now have access to GCSEPod to help boost their learning and boost their grades.

The first assignments have been set in Teams to invite students to activate their accounts and to begin watching some of the 6000 Pods designed to deliver learning across the curriculum in short bursts.
