Message from the Headteacher
Monday 27 June 2016
We have our fingers and toes crossed for an upturn in the weather as we have some outside events this week. On Wednesday we hope to hold our sports day. Please click here to view the recently revised programme, which is now running 40 minutes earlier than times published. This is a whole school event and a highlight of the year for many. We have been blessed with warm, but dry conditions for the last few years and I hope that we will enjoy the same this week. Parents and carers are very welcome as spectators and for a BBQ lunch.
On Friday and Saturday we look forward to our summer music and drama collaboration. Held at the Tudor manor of Crow’s Hall in Debenham, it gives our students a chance to perform in a unique environment. Music performances start at 6.00pm and drama at 7.00pm. Tickets are selling fast, so get them quick if you don’t wish to miss out. Year 7 students have been studying the play Midsummer Nights’ Dream in English and they will all have a chance to view the performance as a matinee on Friday morning.
Also out and about this week, Year 7 undertake their Geography fieldtrip. Half of the year group head out on Monday and the remaining half on Thursday. As part of the Physical Geography study of rivers in the Year 7 course, students will see the development and use of the River Gipping, at different stages of its course. Let’s hope that they only get their feet wet and the day is fair.
Next week we look forward to welcoming Terry Hunt, editor of the EADT and as many of you may know, grew up in the local area, for our Summer Awards Evening. Students who have excelled across this academic year from Year 7 to 10 will be congratulated on this evening.
