|A message from the Executive Head|
Dear Parents and Guardians
I am becoming known as the Grinch! As the school prepares for its run towards the end of term, I find myself curtailing many of our Claires Court much-loved Christmas traditions, much to mine and everyone's dismay, due to Covid-19 safety restrictions in place from the Department for Education (DfE). However, we will celebrate Christmas and ensure our children do not miss out on some fun. We are also ensuring, such is the uncertainty of when a next lockdown might loom, that our children are working hard all the way up to 4pm on the last day of term (Wednesday 16 December). Lots of fun, yes. Lots of learning, yes!
Next week I’ll write to you about our provision for your children as we move into the Lent term. This will include alterations to timings of the end of day bus service, changes to the after school activities, and information on subject specific areas like Music and Sport.
I will also be writing to you about university students returning home. We have a number of families who will be welcoming back their older sons and daughters from universities soon, with much delight and relief I am sure, and we will be supporting you in preventing the spread of the virus and following the guidance to keep everyone safe.
One final reminder please - if anyone in your family bubble/household is waiting for the outcome of a Covid-19 test, you must all isolate until the results are sent through. The guidance can sometimes be misinterpreted and confusing, so I wanted to confirm this for the many of you who have asked. Thank you for your patience and for supporting us in our endeavours to remain as safe a school environment as we possibly can.
Have a lovely weekend.
Executive Head Teacher

New campus appeal - thank you for your support
Thank you to so many of you who have supported our appeal by emailing the planning inspector; we are truly appreciative, and we’re optimistic the benefits of our plans will be heard and your voice will make a difference. As ever we will keep you updated with the latest developments.
Year 12 introduction to careers resources for parents
On Thursday 26 November, Mr Hope will be presenting a virtual meet to Year 12 parents on careers resources. This will outline the proposed programme of careers work students will engage in during the Lent term. It is also intended to help parents to learn more about the choices open to students after Sixth Form and to get ‘hands on’ experience of the many and varied resources now available. The virtual meeting will be from 11.45am-12.30pm and the meeting link can be found here.
Sixth Form practice exams
Both Year 12 and Year 13 will be taking practice exams in the week commencing Monday 30 November. Exams will be held within lesson time and the timetable will continue as normal. The exam results will be included in the full Sixth Form report which will be sent to parents in the New Year.
