Monday 22 September
The cycle of academic years seem more acute than ever in these two weeks as past week started the process for Year 11 students of preparation for the next stage of their studies. This week we welcome Year 6 students, their parents and carers for our Open Evening.
Please register your interest in our school for Year 7 entry in September 2015 by looking at the link in our News section or by giving us a call. We wish to start as we mean to go on with open communication to parents/carers and the sooner that we have your contact details the more informed that you can be about what we offer and the process of application. At our Open Evening this week we encourage all parents, carers and students to “come for dinner” and sample the delights of our in house school catering before a tour of the school and a talk in the main hall. The evening starts at 5.15pm, with meals staggered to avoid a crush. Please contact Mrs Jules Norman if you wish to book a meal. We hope that on our open evening you will see the enthusiasm for learning of staff and students and will feel our culture of mutual respect, high expectations, development of students social, moral, spiritual and cultural understanding and insistence on involvement in all aspects of school life.
Last week Year 7 students behaved in exemplary fashion in their first curriculum linked trip of the year to Colchester Zoo. Their work on this day will link into their study of adaption in Biology. This week we champion our love of reading for pleasure and welcome Pete Johnson, prolific British children's author with over fifty books to his name. He will share his stories with Year 7 students, including his latest book, The Bad Spy's Guide, which was shortlisted for a 2007 Blue Peter Book Award.
I look forward to meeting many of you as possible at our Open Evening this Thursday.
