Letter to Parents 9th June 2023




June 9th 2023 


Dear Parents / Guardians   

Thank you for your support this week getting the students back into school punctually each day following the holiday. Your support is essential and very much appreciated.   

Public Examinations are well underway and students are acquitting themselves well. Years 10 & 12 students will also sit Walking Talking Mock (teachers help) and then Pre-public (teachers do not help) Examinations this term to give them a flavour of next school year. 

This half-term, we will be continuing to ensure students access as many extra-curricular opportunities as possible, and we look forward to welcoming parents to Sports’ Day on Thursday, June 29th. It has been a long time, since we last were able to do this! 

We ended last half-term by sending 948 letters of commendation to parents to recognise students’ submission of personal best class and homework assignments, which are in addition to 508 attendance commendations awarded for 96% + attendance we are sending today.

We look forward to again recognising high levels of student achievement and attendance at the end of this half-term. 

We would like to remind parents and students that mobile phones must be turned off and in the bottoms of bags during Tutor time and lessons. 

Students must not use mobile phones before break or lunch when use will be permitted. This means that mobile phones should remain in students’ bags when moving between lessons. Students must not wear or carry headphones or ear pods in school at any time.

Students must only wear a black or dark blue waterproof – non leather – coat.

Where students do not meet our clear expectations in respect of uniform we may send students home and / or confiscate items, then requesting parents attend school by appointment to pick them up.  

We wish all our students and their families a peaceful weekend.  

Yours Sincerely,  

Charles Joseph
