Founders’ Day food bank collections

In celebrating our school’s history and community links, we will be asking all students to make a minimum donation of £10 for the sponsored Colour Run, which they can gather over the coming weeks by taking part in a variety of charitable tasks both in school and at home. During form time we will be asking tutors to discuss and share ideas about what students could do in order to help them in achieving this donation total.

Additionally, we will be supporting both the Trussell Trust and a local Ukraine Appeal by doing a food bank collection. Our students and families have always been incredibly supportive in previous food bank appeals, so we are looking forward to receiving jars and tins in the run up to Founders’ Day. Items being collected, include:

  • Cereal
  • Soup
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Tinned tomatoes/ pasta sauce
  • Lentils, beans and pulses
  • Tinned meat
  • Tinned vegetables
  • Tea/coffee
  • Tinned fruit
  • Biscuits
  • UHT milk
  • Fruit juice

Thank you for your support.

Buses on last day of term – Thursday 21st July

As was the case in December, the bus company have told us that they will not be able to send buses earlier to collect students for our early finish on the last day of term, 21st July. We are assuming the picture will be similar to the case in December and would like to avoid the need for all buses to come to school at 3.15pm only for most to return to the depot empty. The most straightforward thing to do will be to cancel the buses altogether and make alternative arrangements for the few who are likely to need them.

Therefore, if your child will not be able to make their way home any other way on Thursday 21st July, please let us know by Friday 8th July by emailing and we will organise transport home for them separately, probably via a school minibus.
