Bastille Day celebrations

The Modern Languages Department are thrilled to announce the Bastille Day celebrations for Year 7, which will take place on Monday 15th July 2024! 

To mirror the French tradition of dressing in blue, white and red, Year 7 students will be allowed to wear accessories in the French colours on this day. Students must otherwise wear their full uniform. 

In Form time, students will enjoy a French breakfast of a croissant. We have then secured the Main Hall to learn about the French revolution and engage in fun team activities. We will be joined by the Performing Arts faculty who will lead us in rousing renditions of La Marseillaise and songs from the modern musical adaptation Les Miserables. 

The ‘L’ side of the year will be with us in the Hall periods 1–2, and ‘H’ side of the year will be with us periods 3–4, so students should pack for their other lessons accordingly. 

All Year 7 students will attend, and there is a £1.50 contribution to be paid by Parent Pay by Friday 5th July. Any monies not spent on breakfast and resources will go to Médecins Sans Frontières, an international humanitarian organisation providing medical care in more than 72 countries.
