MESSAGE FROM HEAD OF SECONDARY MR PAUL HARRISON 

16 November 2017

The mid-term break is now behind us and we are starting to feel the festive cheer of Christmas just around the corner. Elf rehearsals are in full swing, and the performances will be next week. We are also getting ready for our annual musical performances at the end of the term. We have already had one sports tournament and a few more are coming soon. Three students attended the 17th informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights, with the theme of "Human Rights and Children” in Bulgaria last week. The University and Careers evening took place this week. Oh, and we must not forget the mock examinations for the Year 11 and Year 13 students that start at the end of this month. We are as busy as ever.

Last Friday we held a Remembrance Assembly for the whole of the Secondary school. The assembly was organised by the Year 8 History class of Mr Keys, and we heard about the research they had done about the people from Dubravka who had died in WWII. On display was the giant poppy that students had created outside the Art room during the week. The poppy was taken later to the British Embassy where it is now on display.

This week letters went home to parents of Year 9, Year 11 and Year 13 about the next Parent drop-in, which takes place next week on 23rd November. Booking appointments could not be easier using the CHQ online system and we expect a good turnout again from parents. This is an opportune time for parents of Year 11 and Year 13 students especially to consult with subject teachers just before the mock examinations. If you are experiencing difficulty with the booking system, then please contact Libusa Mikleticova who is our online appointment coordinator. I look forward to meeting with parents next week.

Finally, the CEM assessment results are now in school. We are just finishing the unpacking of the data so that we can start to work with it to support individual student development. The assessments involved students in Year 7, Year 10 and Year 12 earlier this term, plus any students who had not previously done them in these year groups last year. As I have done in the past, I am now inviting individual parents to come and see me to discuss their own child’s results. If you would like to make an appointment to see me, then please contact my PA, Libusa Mikleticova. I look forward to seeing you.

Warm wishes,

Paul Harrison
Head of Secondary School
