 * in September/October 2020, one PE lesson will be "bounce back"; an initiative directed by NGHS to help students rebuild confidence in their learning and study skills.

To support students and their families, each department has produced a Learning Overview which will provide information about the content being delivered in each subject as well as ways to help students make even more progress. These can be downloaded on the individual subject pages.
