Headteacher’s Weekly Message

Thank you to the Year 8 parents and carers who attended Tuesday’s Kitchens of the Globe who had the chance to sample some of the wonderful food of Germany. It is always good to see you and your on-going support is very much appreciated. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.

This week I have directed my attention to Year 9 lessons and have been very impressed by the level of focus I have seen. When we return from the Christmas holiday we will be launching the GCSE Options Process for Year 9. We recognise what an important milestone this is in their academic career to date and Mr Jackson, as Senior Tutor, is ready to lead them in this process.

On Wednesday, I took time to drop in on each one of our Enrichment Activities and was delighted to see the high levels of engagement and teamwork in action. I was particularly impressed to see the way in which students from different year groups were working together so effectively.

Looking ahead to next week I am particularly excited for our Achievement Evening on 12 December, the preparations for which are well under way, and also our Olympic Athletes’ visit on Friday 13 December.

Finally, I am looking forward to meeting parents and carers again tonight at the Friends’ Christmas Fair, which promises to be an excellent festive evening, and to next week’s Open Forum on Tuesday 10 December 9.30 – 10.30am.
