Girls Netball Fixtures

Dear Parents/Carers,

Unfortunately, the girls’ Netball fixtures have been cancelled this evening due to inclement weather for Years’ 7, 8, 9, 10 & 11.

Please note – Years’ 9 and 10 will play a practice match against each other in the Sports Hall, finish time of 16.30

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Year 7 English

Dear parent/ carer,

As you are aware, Year 7 have been studying Great Expectations in English over the first half term and they are going to continue to study this text over the next half term too – this time, with a focus on writing skills.

At the beginning of the half term, we are going to make some changes to the Year 7 classes so that they are more streamlined. The adjustments will be made within the current bands which the classes are taught in, streamlining between 2 or 3 classes. This will ensure that teachers can target their teaching to meet the needs of the group – therefore it will be beneficial for all students in Year 7.  Although they will be streamlined in accordance to academic ability, they will not be set in the traditional sense until Year 8 as is currently the case.

All classes will be studying the same text and the same lessons and similarly, the written tasks and the assessments will be identical.

Thank you for your continued support.

Miss F Drummond

Uniform

Dear parents and carers

The weather forecast for Monday seems a little unpredictable at the moment but it does seem clear that the weekend will be another hot one, which means that conditions may still be very uncomfortable in parts of the school on Monday. It also seems clear that we will back to more normal temperatures for this time of year by Tuesday, which is Founders’ Day and the sponsored walk when students are always allowed to wear PE kit anyway. Taking all this into account, we are taking the decision to return to normal school uniform on Wednesday next week.

Thank you all for your patience with PE kit. When the Met Office issued their weather warning and we first said we would allow PE kit, I don’t think anybody thought we would have such a prolonged period of exceptionally hot weather!

Kind regards

Uniform update

Dear parents and carers

 Even though temperatures might be a little lower tomorrow, the residual heat inside the school buildings means that conditions inside are likely to remain uncomfortable in some areas. It also looks as if temperatures are going to rise again over the weekend and the heatwave is set to continue well into next week. Therefore, we will continue to allow students to wear PE kit until further notice.

 Kind regards

Gwyn Williams
