On Wednesday, 9th October we have our STEAM exhibition - Communicating Science Through Art. It is open to parents between 3.00pm and 4.30pm, do come by Cooper Hall!
The Sixth Form Opening Evening will take place on Thursday, 10th October 6.00pm-7.00pm in Cooper Hall. Mr Bull and the Secondary team look forward to presenting the options available for Post-16 study.
We will hold our Charity Awareness Day on Friday, 11th October. The school has been working on a new charity programme, where we will be supporting charities within the four categories Children, Climate, Health and Human Rightsover the coming years. The charities chosen were selected by the students last academic year and will be supported through a range of activities in school. Friday is a non-uniform day and the students are invited to donate $2 to the charity of their choice.
Students are encouraged to design an A4 poster that raises awareness of the charities and their causes. The deadline for designs is Thursday 10th October and the posters should be passed to the Class Teachers/ Form Tutors. Students should choose the charity group assigned to their house below. Please note that the houses are only assigned a charity group for this first charity day, moving forward, the school will support the listed charities for different events:
Finally, a reminder that there are no ECAs on Friday. This allows those families who are going away for the break a chance to leave right after school. The ECAs will resume on Monday 21st October.
Have a great week and enjoy next week's break.
