Week Beginning: Monday 26th January 2015
This Monday our guided options process begins with Year 9 students
Mr Bellamy will be presenting an assembly to Year 9 students, outlining the process and issuing the Options Booklets, ahead of events such as Year 9 Parents’ Evening and individual meetings with members of the Senior Leadership and students accompanied by their parents. We urge all our Year 9 students and their parents/carers to read the booklet thoroughly, so that our students can make informed choices.
With the change in the weather, we have noticed some slight deterioration in the appearance of a minority of students. Please continue to support us by ensuring that your child does not use a ‘hoodie’ as an outdoor coat; we also expect students to wear leather shoes, rather than canvas ‘Vans’, Converse or trainers. We really appreciate your help in this matter and cannot stress strongly enough the impact welldressed students have on our overarching school tone and ethos, as well as behaviour and attitudes to learning.
Duke of Edinburgh Bronze on Practice Trip
Congratulations to the Bronze Group ‘A’ who walked around Cheshire for their practice expedition. Although most groups got lost at some point, and many had tired legs or blisters, the expedition was a great success and has prepared them for their final assessment on 27th June.
Supporting Sophie's Choice Campaign
Following the tragic death of Wirral teenager Sophie Jones and the make-up free 'selfies' that thousands have taken part in via social networking sites, the Sixth Form girls were inspired to come into school without an ounce of make up on. they managed to raise an amazing £150 in the first hour.
