Autumn Term Arrangements

Hits: 1073

I would like to confirm that the Autumn term starts on Thursday 6th September with the following timings:
New Year 7 students and Year 11 Mentors – 8.40am
All other students – 9.25am for assembly and registration

The School Council hold one non-uniform day per half-term and have decided they would like this Friday, the 6th July, to be a non-uniform day. It is our School Sports Day and as you may have been aware from the local press recently, rather than using money for in-school projects, the students have requested that money raised is donated to UNICEF to support their aim to provide education for students in economically poorer countries. Please ensure your child brings a donation of £1 for the day, or £1.50 for families with siblings in school. Tutors will collect these donation during the morning registration.
It would be appreciated if students wore some clothing that linked to their PE House colour; it makes a great spectacle when they are all out on the field in the afternoon! With this in mind, with the hot weather due to continue, can I ask that you ensure your child has a hat, long sleeves, suncream and water to drink on this day. The whole school are out on the field in the afternoon, which is a great occasion, provided people are prepared and dressed appropriately. I would like to remind you and your children however, that normal rules for jewellery apply and that clothing should be appropriate for school; for example tops should cover midriffs, shorts and skirts should be of an appropriate length for school and any rips in jeans should be in the knees only!
We have had a busy and positive term so far and are delighted with the hard work of our students. We look forward to the remaining few weeks of the term and all that they bring and thank you for your continued support.
