Dear Parents and Carers...

A letter from our Head of School

Dear Parents and Carers,

Congratulations to our Year 11s and Year 13s (and their families) who have reached the end of the GCSE and A level Exams.  Enjoy the long summer holiday! 

We have an exciting and busy few weeks ahead of us in school;  Year 10 work experience, the whole school production, sports day, activity day, inter-form competitions, culture day, Y12 transition day and the sports presentation evening are all happening in the next few weeks!

To our families and community celebrating Eid next week, we would like to wish you Eid Mubarak - عيد مبارك

Legally Blonde

Please remember to buy your tickets for our wonderful School Production of Legally Blonde.  Details below:-

Argent magazine

A group of talented Year 10 students have worked hard to create a magazine focused on items of interest to students at Silverdale School.  An exclusive online view of their publication was made available to parents and carers.

Y9 Parents

Please look out for communications regarding the Y9 Options which will be with you shortly.


Packing Boxes

Do you have any unused packing boxes that you can donate to school please?  If so, please could you bring them to main reception before the end of term.  Thank you


Upcoming Strike Days – 5th and 7th July

Please see attachment sent out Friday.


Missing and Damaged Library books

Students are regularly reminded to return their library books in a timely manner, however we understand that books do sometimes get lost or damaged beyond repair. If, despite reminders, your child has lost their library book, it is now straightforward and convenient to rectify by selecting  LIBRARY – ‘Payment for a lost or damaged school library book’ on ParentPay. This payment will be acknowledged by the librarian and the item removed from your child’s library account.
