Letter to Parents 14th July







July 14th 2022


Dear Parents 


Thank you for your support of your daughters and sons and of course of us.  

Next week, Thursday July 21st is the last day of term. We will run a Tag Trek and finish at midday. The day will run as a non-uniform day with the proceeds shared at the request of the student body between The British Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal and cancer care in the United States for a member of the school community. Students should bring a £1 contribution. The day will run as a dress down day for staff, who will also be contributing. Please ensure students wear appropriate footwear for the trek and that they bring a hat, sun cream and water.  

Today, we are enclosing our Digital Library for the summer. It contains a range of exciting and enjoyable books to read for each year Group from Years 7 – 13. We want to encourage all our students to read for pleasure over the summer. Please ensure they choose a book and read each day for at least 20 minutes. Students who read daily understanding and achieve so much more highly across their school subjects. Digital Library Summer Holiday 

As students leave us for the summer holidays we will be providing them and you with a range of information designed to support parents in keeping their children safe over these upcoming weeks.  

Today’s information is directly from the Department of Education:  

 Keeping Children safe during Community Activities, After School Clubs and Tuition 

This week we are talking to students about the Work Packs we are providing in each subject for students to complete over the summer holiday. These will be set out in a weekly format, so students can easily see what tasks they need to complete in a given week. Maintaining good and regular study habits over the summer holiday will support them to do well in September and the tasks we set will still leave plenty of time for leisure and valuable family time! We will of course be recognizing students’ efforts as we start back out in September. 

Free School Meal vouchers will be issued to parents next Wednesday as per our letter of July 12th. Please also see Parent and Guardian Ordering


Yours sincerely
