End of term arrangements

Dear Parents/Carers,

As 2017 draws to a close, I would like to thank you for your support throughout the past 12 months.

It has been another successful year for our students and staff and your continuing support in ensuring our students achieve more than they thought possible is very much appreciated.

This Friday (15th December) we are supporting ‘Save the Children’ by holding a fundraising Christmas jumper day. Students are permitted to wear one item of Christmas clothing for a suggested donation of £1. Please note, this is not a full non-uniform day. All students are expected to wear their regular school uniform, with those taking part in the fundraising being allowed to wear one Christmas related item. Acceptable items include: Jumpers, cardigans, hats and headbands.

Next Monday (18th December) sees the welcome return of our Key Stage 4 and 5 Awards Evening. The event provides a fantastic opportunity to recognise the successes of our current GCSE and A-Level students, while we also welcome back and congratulate last summer’s exam entrants as they collect their certificates.

Finally, school closes for the Christmas holidays at 2.20pm on Friday (22nd December). To mark the end of term, the 22nd is our traditional ‘Mufti' non-uniform day where students are permitted to wear their own suitable and appropriate clothing for £1. Money raised will be split between two charities – one local and one national.

May I conclude by wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I look forward to welcoming students back to school for the start of the new term on Tuesday 9th January 2018.

Kind regards

Richard Williman
