A message from the Executive Head
Dear Parents and Guardians
A bit of sunshine, the return of some routines, challenge and nurture in equal balance, there has even been talk of sports fixtures for our boys and girls after Easter. School is back!

While we are celebrating the return of children to school, we are also being very mindful of the significant impact Covid-19 has had on our families, and while ‘the norm’ looks not too far away, we are being careful to ensure that our community is supported whenever help is needed. Please contact the school should you have any questions regarding how our pastoral system is adapting to look after your children with the utmost care, or should you have any queries about our Safety Control Measures. 

I hope you enjoy the musings from our Headteachers, and I wish you a fabulous weekend.
Best wishes
Justin Spanswick
Executive Head Teacher
Lateral Flow Home Testing
Please note the guidance on page 15 of the latest instruction booklet (January 2021 version 1.3.2) that you must report your child’s Covid-19 home test result to the NHS within 24 hours, whether positive, negative or void, via Please report positive results only to the school. Thank you.
Comic Relief - Friday 19 March

Lots of red could be seen around the Sixth Form Centre today and students were keen to support Red Nose Day and Brufut. Generous donations meant that we collected £170 on the day, with additional contributions coming in on Monday and also on line for Brufut on the parent portal via the “Brufut Challenge”. The parent portal is still open should you wish to make a contribution.

We are hoping to raise enough money to sponsor Alasana who is 6 years old. He has two older brothers and one older sister. His father is a driver, his mother is a housewife. They live in a family compound in Ghana Town, Brufut. They have no access to electricity or water. Sponsorship will help him to be able to continue with schooling, to have regular school lunch and all the necessary school supplies.

Lunchtime Enrichment Activities
The Sixth Form Enrichment activities began in earnest this week with all the clubs reporting great turnouts. The Debating club was especially popular and attracted much discussion. New students are still welcome to attend the sessions. 

Staying Connected #2.2
#Stay Connected 2.2 was distributed today, with the help of several sub-editors who helped to create and check the new magazine. It is a one stop shop for all information regarding information on unis/apprenticeships/jobs and this week it also included some valuable tips about university. The weekly update from our Make A Difference team gave us information about recycling and the Recycled Art competition that they are running. Do take a look.

Y12 Parents’ Evenings - Tuesday 23 March and Wednesday 24 March
