Good morning young men of Millgate,

We find ourselves with just 2 more school days ahead of your summer break.  What an amazing year we have had to look back on, and one that has played out like nobody expected. 

As staff we have been incredibly proud of you during recent months.   There have been excellent examples of what you are able to achieve during remote learning and the new knowledge and skills you've developed. 

I can’t wait for this all to be over and to have you all back in school again. We have all missed you very much and look forward to seeing you in September.

Good morning young men of Millgate,

Below is this months "Millgate Foodie" newsletter with some mouthwatering recipes, country of origin quiz and chef of the month competition. 


Good morning young men of Millgate,

This week has seen reports published.  

You will receive yours via the post or via the EduLink app.

Your pastoral TA, if required will offer support setting up the app.  They will also be discussing the data featured on the report, so it's both meaningful and informative.    

Can you identify anything you want to improve ahead of the next report that will be out late November?   

Maybe you can identify a relevant target for next year before your pastoral has a chance too!
