Head Teacher's News
Dear parents, families and friends,
We have had a successful opening to the school year. This year 16 students have joined us in year 7 and 16 student have joined our sixth form. Everyone has settled in to their new classes well. We are enjoying seeing the new students wearing our new purple coloured uniforms. As usual teachers have been busy assessing our new young people and we are looking forward to holding priorities meetings following half term.
As we begin this new school year I reflect that it is the last one in our current building in Woodlands Road. The building project at Gresham Road is progressing rapidly and remains on track for a completion date in the spring 2018. I am looking forward to showing you all, and to begin the process of taking the students to see their new school. I am hoping that we will be able to use the swimming pools and sport facilities during the summer term and to hold our sports day there for the first time.
This year our Assistant Heads will be chairing most of the annual review meetings. Every year we have up to a quarter of meetings rebooked because parents forget to attend. Please do put the date of your child’s review in your diary. Your attendance is so important to us so we can keep you updated and share your knowledge.
We have plenty planned for the forthcoming year and we are looking forward to seeing you in school for our events and performances. Please do put the main events in your diary.
Thank you as usual for your support. Please do keep in contact during the year.
