Letter to Parents 21st April 2023



Dear Parents and students 

I hope you all had a peaceful Easter. 

We welcomed students back to school on Monday morning and have settled quickly to work this week. 

On Monday, teachers reminded students of Ground Rules in class to ensure teaching and learning take place with maximum efficiency. The College Leadership Team and I have toured classrooms each morning this week and been delighted with how students are applying themselves to their learning. They look smart and are very largely properly equipped for the school day. Thank you! Please see our student Equipment List HERE

Today, our Year 8 girls have taken part in football training and coaching activities, which will help them when they start coaching primary school students later on this term. 

As students in Years 11 & 13 approach Public Examinations, we will of course focus these final weeks on preparing them and giving them the tools to prepare themselves for these important examinations. But of course we remain mindful and will be watchful of student welfare and well-being in these crucial weeks. 

Our weekly Family Friday sessions in Daily Tutor Time give the whole school community the opportunity to relax and engage in a conversation or activity together. Please see today’s                Family Friday April 21st 

Our colleagues at KCC have asked us to share information about volunteering during the summer with the whole school community Become a Volunteer 2023  

Just by way of reminder about the rather disjointed nature to this half-term: 

Letter of April 17th 

Yours sincerely, 


Charles Joseph
