Head’s Blog 30th November 2018

Our year 11 pupils are now busy preparing for their mock examinations which take place next week. Whilst these exams come ‘mid-way’ through their studies, they are still important for pupils to gauge just what they will need to do in order to prepare fully for June.  Good luck Year 11 – I know that you can do it!

As there are only four weeks left until the end of term, I thought I would share with you some of the plans for the final week.

Friday 14thDecember

Christmas Jumper Day – donation to Save the Children.  Pupils can wear Christmas jumpers/hats etc should they wish but it is not essential. They should wear the rest of their school uniform as normal (eg trousers/skirt/shirt/tie)

Christmas Lunch –  served in the lower school canteen with year 7 and 8 having lunch early in order to be able to accommodate everyone.  Pupils who do not want Christmas lunch will need to go to the upper school cante where ‘Quick Bites’ only will be served.

Monday 17thDecember

Assembly     Upper School  – sixth form assembly where the mayor (Councillor John McCarthy) will present the school with a plaque in recognition of the success of the senior rugby team.

Finally, can I remind you once again that it is important that pupils wear a suitable coat to school at this time of the year and this no longer has to be dark in colour – I would prefer pupils to stay as warm and dry as possible!

Our photo of the week comes from our enrichment programme where thanks to the support of South Wales Fire and Rescue Service, our pupils really are having an outstanding experience.

Thank you for your support.
