Letter to Parents 30th September
Thank you for your support of your child and us this week.
I have really enjoyed seeing how hard and happily students are working as I have visited classrooms over the last 2 weeks. Students are well equipped for lessons and punctual in the mornings.
In class, teachers continue to speak to students about our key message for the school year of the importance of kindness to and about each other, so our community is always a happy and productive one.
This week Years 12 & 13 Business students have visited Thorpe Park in connection with their A level course and Years 11, 12 & 13 Dance students are today working in school with practitioners from the National Youth Dance Company.
We now have 47 lunch time and after school clubs up and running (10 more than last Friday). Please do encourage your child to join a club. Clubs can be particularly helpful for Year 7 students, as they navigate the changes of friendship groups, which are part and parcel of transfer to secondary school.
If you are a parent of a Year 12 student and were unable to attend Mr Travers’ Sixth Form Information Evening this week, here is a recording of the key information from the event. Sixth Form Information Evening Please see the letter that was sent out via email for the password to this recording.
We will be running a Year 11 Parent Information Evening next Tuesday and have written to Year 11 parents about this separately. I do hope you can attend. Year 11 Parent Information Evening Letter
Separately, we have already run Maths and Science revision and Examination Practice Days in school for our Year 11 students as we set about this final school year’s preparation for GCSE examinations.
Student well-being and welfare will be our priority with students this year, and we will be particularly attentive to this as our older students approach Public Examinations.
