Due to the extensive building and refurbishment works that we have planned for the summer holiday, it has become clear that we are going to have to close school a day earlier than planned for Health and Safety reasons. This means that the last day of school for all students will be Thursday 23rd July and school will finish at the normal time of 3.30pm. I do appreciate that this is short notice and apologise for any inconvenience but the planned improvements will benefit all students.
Staff however, will be in as normal on Friday morning to discuss some exciting plans and further opportunities for our school.

Welcome to Southgate
Dear Parent or Guardian
I think it is remarkable that even at this stage of a year packed with events and change, that staff and students still have the energy to run events such as the Year 8 Graduation disco where nearly 200 students sweated and danced to something they called music and the Awards afternoon of last week which celebrated just some of the achievements of our remarkable student body. I have had a wonderful two terms here and have seen so much good practice but the event that really stands out for me was the Year 7 Carnival.
