Welcome to Debenham High SchooL
Message from the Headteacher
Monday 27 October
Thank you to all those parents and carers who joined us at St Edmundsbury Cathedral on Sunday for the Diocesan Centenary Service of Thanksgiving for Church Schools. Debenham High School students Edward Botwright (Year 9), Luke Bower and Emma Burley (Year 7) shared their moving poems of hopes and dreams with all those gathered at the service.
We have now broken up for half-term and students are looking forward to a break after working hard at the start of the year. We return after the holiday with a flurry of activity. Year 11 parents and carers join us on Tuesday 4 November for their consultation evening. This evening prepares students and their support at home for the forthcoming mock examinations in November.
On Friday 7 November we are holding our Jubilee Celebration. The whole school community will gather along with invited former colleagues and previous Head Girls and Boys for an assembly. This will be followed by the chance to tour the school, reminisce over old photographs and share a cream tea. If you are a former student, parent or colleague and would like to attend then please contact our school office on firstname.lastname@example.org. You might also want to "Like"’ our new Debenham High School Facebook page, where we hope to reconnect old friends and colleagues and keep all informed of what is taking place at the school.
The following week, we will be holding our Remembrance Service at St Mary’s Church on Tuesday. Then on Thursday 13 November, we welcome back our Year 12 leavers to celebrate their exceptional performance in the summer examinations and their time with us.
The deadline for Local Authority admissions is 31 October. Year 6 parents and carers are reminded that alongside the Common Admissions Form they should complete a Supplementary Information Form, returning the latter directly to the school.
