Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you have had an enjoyable Easter weekend… though I’d appreciate your support in clarifying to students that there are no plans to make a four day week the norm!
We have a busy week ahead before we break up for the holidays on Friday and two trips scheduled to leave this weekend – the PE and Sports trip to La Manga, Spain, as well as the Battlefields trip to France and Belgium. We are sure our students will have a fantastic time.
It gives me great pleasure to confirm the Tynny Summer Camp will take place this year from Monday 25th July – Saturday 30th July for students in Years 7–10.

Last week we had 3 nights of our school production ‘It Snows’, which was a great success. I went to two of the performances myself and was mesmerised by the energy and skill of the performers; they were fantastic. Thank you very much to all who were involved – students, parents and staff.
On Thursday we had the pleasure of hosting the Medical Mavericks Human Guinea Pig Roadshow. Our Year 7-10 Scholars were treated to a presentation where they developed an understanding of healthcare science and looked at the role that this plays in our hospitals. Following this a select number of Year 10, 11 and sixth form students were given the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ with the equipment in a workshop dedicated to those who may be interested in Medicine and Science. Using the equipment provided, they were able to ‘perform’ keyhole surgery, take blood, use the spirometer, try on the ‘drunk’ googles and take an ECG. It was a brilliant day and a fantastic opportunity for our aspiring medics to have an insight into the profession.
The school shop will be open from Monday 11th April to Thursday 14th April, 9am to 3pm, during the break.
Finally, I hope everyone has a lovely holiday. Best wishes go especially to those households where students will be revising for exams – a tough time for everyone concerned, we know, but we all hope the hard work will ultimately be rewarded.
