From the Office
Please name items in the ‘drop box’
Thank you so much for your help; we have had noticeably fewer items being forgotten and dropped into school, so we appreciate your support. If you are leaving any forgotten items in the ‘drop box’ at the end of the drive, please do ensure that they clearly show your son’s name, so we know who the item is for. Please ask your son to collect items from reception after midday. Thank you.

REMINDER - Wet weather change of clothes 
On all PE and Games days (but especially wet days like today!), please ensure your son brings with him a change of clothes to school in case of wet weather. This can either be additional sports clothing or his uniform, but it is important he has a dry set of clothes available. A towel may also be useful.

A plea for a parent volunteer to take over the running of our Senior Boys PTA Nearly New uniform please. Tina Webster has done a remarkable job and been so generous with her time by still managing this despite her son now being in Year 13! However, she will obviously step down this year and therefore is looking for someone to train up to take over the mantle. Please contact Tina directly if you are able to offer any support Thank you.

Nearly new uniform virtual sale
Could we please ask anyone who recently received nearly new uniform but has not yet returned the paperwork, to do so at your earliest convenience with the payment if you are keeping the items, or without payment if you have returned items.
