It already feels as though we have been back at school for some time, and yet with the holiday on Wednesday we have still not completed a full week! Students have been working with gusto, and I have been most impressed with the behaviour, appearance and work ethic of all our students at the start of this academic year.
Students are currently putting themselves forward for a position on the Student Council, which this year is being headed up by Ms Riley and Mr Tung. Last year, the council were responsible for such exciting events as the Winter Dance and also formed an Eco-committee which has had a tremendous impact already on the practices of the school. Potential House Captains are also applying in years 12 and 13 for their chance to lead their house to glory over the coming year.
Last year’s Student Council
We have lots of exciting opportunities coming up over the next few weeks, and you as parents are invited to participate in many of them. The Extra-curricular Activities sign-up on CHQ has now opened, and I would actively encourage you to ensure that your child participates in at least one, preferably more, after school club. School is far more than the subjects studies formally, and good universities want well-rounded students joining them, not only those who have good iGCSE and A level results.

KS3 Coffee Morning
On Wednesday, 9th September, parents of students in years 7-9 are invited to attend a Coffee Morning at 8.30am in the Drama Studio. Here you will be able to discuss the key stage 3 curriculum, and all the subjects your children are currently studying. You will also then have the opportunity to attend the Key Stage 3 assembly. The key stage 4/5 morning will follow on 16 September, and I will send more information on that next week.
You will be receiving lots of information via email over the coming weeks, much of it requiring a clicked response. If you feel you haven’t received information at all, please check that we have your correct email details.
Have a lovely weekend.
