    Time flies

    I know it is a cliché but ‘time flies’ (tempus fugit!), especially in a busy school environment and this half term is no exception.  There is always something exciting happening or being prepared for.

    As I’m sure you’ll be aware, we have been busy rehearsing the school production of ‘Grease’ for which students and staff have worked tirelessly, putting in long hours after school and at weekends – including a residential at the Conway Centre.  None of this would have been possible without tremendous support from all the members of staff who have given their time so generously, along with the parents, families and friends who have supported our students in so many ways. Thank you to each and every one.

    There have been many other events of course, including our annual 6th Form Charity Week.  All proceeds will begoing to MIND this year – a fantastic charity chosen by our students.  They always do such a wonderful job of raising funds and they manage to put a smile on the faces of students and staff as they do it. 

    I am also delighted that we have gained re-accreditation for the prestigious Green Flag International Award, a really top achievement; well done to the Eco School Action Team for all their hard work and dedication.  The assessor commented on what a pleasure it had been to visit our school and on the ‘real passion’ that our students showed for their eco projects.

    Our visit to the World War One battlefields is taking place as I write this and our ski party will be leaving at the weekend for Italy; I wish the staff and students all the very best and look forward to hearing all about their experiences upon their safe return!

    With best wishes for a safe and happy half term break.
