Weekly Bulletin: 18th January 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,

We start the week celebrating the success of our Year 8 Football team who have made their way into the last 16 of the National School’s U13 Cup. On Friday they competed in a competitive game in blustery conditions. However, with a score of 0-0 at the full-time whistle, Fenton Green scored a fantastic goal in extra time, leading Lymm to a well-deserved win against Manchester Grammar School. Congratulations to the team and good luck in your forthcoming game against Meadowhead School.

Congratulations also go to Izzy Troth, who has received an offer from Pembroke College, Oxford University to study Languages. This is obviously a fabulous achievement and we wish her all the best in securing the necessary grades.

We look forward to welcoming around 180 Year 5 pupils from our partner primaries into school on Friday, for the second ‘Primary Science Day’. They will be spending the whole day here at LHS, experiencing several interactive Science investigations, using one of our labs and participating in an explosive Chemistry demonstration! All of the experiments and activities will be led by a selection of our Year 11 and Year 12 students. It promises to be a very exciting event, and will give the Year 5 pupils a wonderful introduction to Science here at Lymm.

I would like to remind our Year 9 parents that Choices Evening will take place this week on Thursday. The purpose of the evening is to enhance the information that you already have, to enable you and your child to make well-informed decisions relating to Key Stage 4 option choices for Year 10 and 11. The evening has been split – with designated time slots based on your child’s hall group. Please click here for more information.

Parents of Year 11 and Year 12 students should have already seen the letters relating to AS levels. If not, see the following links:

Also on Thursday this week, we have our ”Bags2schools” collection taking place. Bags have been made available to students; however any bag will be acceptable. Our record collection was just over £300, which we hope to beat this time.

On Friday we have a joint PTA and Afritwin event in school. “Step back in time” will showcase the talents of the local covers band “The Athertones”, which features several members of teaching staff from the school. A bar and snacks will be available on the evening. Tickets are £10 each or £60 for a table of 8, and can be purchased from the school shop. In the past these events have been great fun, so do come and join us in raising money for our school and school charity.
