Not everybody uses social media so, if you prefer, you can follow events and get news and alerts to your mobile 'phone using the School News App.
How the App Works
Firstly, you will need to download the app from either the iTunes App Store , Google Play or Windows Store by clicking on the relevant buttons below or by loading up the app store on your phone and searching for ‘School News’.
Once you have located and downloaded the free app, launch the app and you will then be able to either click on the ‘Find my school’ button which uses the phones GPS to locate all the schools in the surrounding 20 miles, or you can type in the schools postcode and click on ‘Get my school’ button.
Our school's postcode is: BR5 3HS
You will then see a list of schools that use the app. Click on the school you wish to view news & events for.
You will then be able to click on the ‘News’ button to view all of the latest news items that have been added to the school(s) you have selected and also all of the upcoming calendar events by clicking on the ‘Events’ button. You will need to allow push notifications for the app in your device in order to receive alerts when news is updated.
