We also had a week of wearing non-uniform. From wearing red to raise awareness for the UN Sustainable Development Goal Number 4 – Quality Education to dressing up in International colours/costumes on Friday to mark the end of International Week.
It seems hard to believe that we are nearing the end of October already and looking forward to the run-up to Christmas! A few changes see our Year 11 & 13 students looking at sitting mock examinations in December instead of January so they will be busy preparing revision notes and consolidating their learning after half term.
The newly appointed Head Girl, Tosia B and Head Boy, Quentin H, will be forging ahead with a team of Senior Prefects to bring about ideas and initiatives to further improve the experience of students in our school. We will be excited to see their ideas coming to fruition over the coming months.
On top of this, we are busy planning some exciting trips for our students, namely the Ski Trip to Les Martinets in early January, Tanzania trips for Year 10 & 12 at the end of January and end of March and the Year 9 Iceland trip in May, plus the ever-present sporting tournaments and competitions which we are regular participants in.
I thank all the staff involved in the organisation of these extra-curricular trips; they do take a good deal of preparation but are hugely rewarding for staff involved.
Have a super half term.
Head of Secondary
