Letter from The Headteacher

15 July 2021

Dear Parent

Senior Leaders
As you will be aware, I leave the school at the end of August 2021. Mrs Williams will be Acting Headteacher from September and Dr Tuohy will be Acting Deputy Head. I am sure you will continue to offer them your support as they continue to care for our pupils.

 

Senior Prefects
Following an intensive selection procedure, I am proud to announce the names of our new senior prefects. Our new Head Girl is Beth Porter, our new Head Boy is Alfie Vent, our new Deputy Head Girl is Olivia James and our new Deputy Head Boy is Robbie Smedley. I know that they will do a fantastic job representing and supporting all of our wonderful pupils in school.
Congratulations also must be given to the many Year 10 pupils who have been given Senior Prefect roles across school. Pupil leadership goes from strength to strength.

 

Extra May Bank Holiday 2022
As you will be aware, due to the Queen’s Jubilee, a 4 day Bank Holiday will take place during the Spring Bank Holiday next year. Due to this, schools are able to take an extra days holiday next academic year. We have decided to take this extra holiday day on Friday 22 July 2022 and therefore will now finish for the summer on Thursday 21 July 2022. We have updated our published term dates on the website to reflect this.

 

Summer Break
School will close for pupils on Friday 16 July 2021 at 1.00pm. Buses have been arranged. School re-opens for pupils from Tuesday 7 September 2020. Further details will follow before the September return, as due to testing requirements, it may be necessary to stagger the return to school in September to allow pupils to be tested on their first day back.

 

Guidance for reporting positive LF and PCR tests:
Until Monday 19th of July, school has been asked to continue to track and trace positive COVID cases. If your child has a positive LF or PCR test between Friday 16th of July and Sunday 18th of July, please can you report this to Dr. Tuohy on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so that she can track contacts.

 

Pre-Ordering Food
With effect from September 2021 we will no longer be offering the option to pre-order food. The selection currently available on the pre-paid order system will however continue to be available on a daily basis.
Any balances remaining on pre-paid accounts will be transferred over to the general catering account during the summer holiday period.
Should you have any queries regarding this please email the school office on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

It has been a difficult and testing time for us all over the last year and a half. I would like to thank you all for your support and understanding, with regards to lockdown, home learning and on-going testing. I do hope that you and your families have a lovely summer break and that all of our pupils enjoy their well-earned rest. We look forward to September and the new academic year ahead. Mrs Williams will write to you again before our return in September.

Yours sincerely

Richard Varey
Headteacher
