Weekly Bulletin: 6th June 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome you all back from what has, I hope, been an enjoyable and restful half term break.

I would like to remind parents of the early closure on Thursday next week (16th June), in order for our staff to prepare for our annual Summer Open Evening. Buses have been notified and will be available from 12.25pm to ensure a safe journey home. We hope many of our students will return in the evening to support prospective pupils and also to use this as an opportunity to gain further evidence for the Leadership Ladder.

Following this, school will also be closed for a staff INSET day on Friday 17th June for teachers to prepare for the new GCSE and A Level specifications. Students will therefore not be required to attend school, unless they have an external exam on this day. As we said in our original letter, if this causes any major problems in terms of childcare for any families, we may be able to help with supervising a certain number of students for the day; please contact Student Services if this applies to you.

Before half term we had a fantastic ‘Rugby Festival’ when the Under 20s World Cup trophy came to Lymm High School. The day was incredibly successful – starting with the beautiful weather that enabled our Year 7 and 8 students to participate in a variety of rugby competitions throughout the morning. Students were also fortunate enough to have their photograph taken with the trophy; as well as participate in sessions run by Sale Sharks. Thank you to our PE staff, Sale Sharks and the World Cup Officials who helped to organise this brilliant day.

We also had a very successful trip to Madrid over half-term, with details to follow in next week’s bulletin.

The Performing Arts Faculty are participating in the Great North Swim this Sunday for Cancer Research. Their goal is to raise £2000 – If you would like to sponsor them and help them raise money for this fantastic cause, please visit their justgiving page (if only just to see their picture!) at: https://www.justgiving.com/lymmhighperformingarts
