Head Teacher’s News-December 2022

We have had a really successful term in School this year. We had far warmer weather than in some years and the majority of activities are now fully reopened as usual.

This term the PE team have changed how PE is arranged so that all the young people can work to their best level in physical skills. We have also doubled the length of sports and swimming lessons so that the young people can practice their dressing skills. Please do talk to your classroom team if there is an aspect of dressing that would like addressed or support you need to continue to work towards independent dressing at home.

In the music room some of the pupils have been working hard with staff from the Hounslow Music Service in an “Open Orchestra” I really loved the performance of a piece by Beethoven last week.

More of our pupils have been working on a special project to become more independent using their own wheelchairs in school.

Pupils in Syon and Richmond in Key stage 4 have begun work on entrepreneurship projects aimed at enabling our students to make a difference in their communities. Thanks to everyone who sent items in for the Syon 5 collection for people in need in the Borough.


As I write I am looking forward to the Christmas activities that are being arranged for the children, and in   particular to the Christmas service which is taking place in St Vincent’s Church at 10:30am on the last day of term 16th December. You are very welcome to join us in church to see the celebration and join us in Christmas    music and singing.

I would like to wish all our families a happy holiday, and for everyone celebrating a happy and enjoyable Christmas. We look forward to working with you all in 2023.
