Claires Court Jubilee Tree Canopy Unveiled
We are delighted to have launched our new initiative to celebrate both our School Diamond Jubilee and HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.  Remember the deadline for purchasing a legacy tree, with your family name on it, is Monday 18 October and we have almost reached our one hundred tree capacity.  Please take a look at how you can get involved in this exciting project in our news story here. 

Menus & Dining 
After half term we will be moving to a two weekly cycle for menus due to the supply chain issues we are experiencing. Please also be aware that the menus may need to change without notice due to these issues. Thank you for your understanding.

Y12 Gradecards
Y12 parents will be receiving a Grade Card on Friday, following the results of the recent subject review tests. These will be emailed out to parents on Friday and will be uploaded to the parent portal. Please do look out for the email.
Exam Arrangements Rules and Regulations Booklet
All Sixth Form students have been emailed a copy of the “Exam Arrangements Rules & Regulations” booklet which they need to read very carefully over the holiday, including any appendices. Parents may find here a link to the booklet.

After half term, students will be asked to sign a declaration to say that they have been notified of the information. 

Lots of the Sixth Form students wore yellow on Wednesday this week, from Mr Happy ties to Tour de France beanie hats. Mrs Rogers joined in and wore a yellow rose, all so we could bring awareness to YoungMinds and World Mental Health Day. 

We raised over £200 for this very worthwhile cause.

Y13 Biology trip to Juniper Hall
Our Y13 biologists will be off to Juniper Hall on Monday 1 November for a 3 day trip to give them much needed fieldwork experience for their final exams. We wish them all a successful trip.

Make it Monday - change of dress code from 1 November 
As a result of a request by Student Voice, we have now changed our “Formal Friday”, when students come into school suited and booted wearing formal dress code attire, to “Make it Monday”. Formal dress on Mondays will begin from the first Monday after the holiday, Monday 1 November.  

LFT regular testing and PCR 
Please ensure your son or daughter is Lateral Flow Testing twice weekly and reporting results via the GOV.UK website. Please remember LFTs are for asymptomatic testing only, so if they display any of three main covid symptoms (temperature, cough or loss of smell), they must take a PCR test and should not come into school until you have received the results. Please inform the school of PCR test results once received. Thank you.

The Baby Bank
Many thanks for your generosity in donating items for the Baby Bank. We collected three boxes full of items from Sixth Form which will make a difference to many local families with babies and young children. 

Thinking about your next steps after school? 
Success at School will be presenting a FREE student insight webinar on Thursday 11 November 4.30pm - 5.00pm in partnership with BT, where you will get the lowdown on all things BT apprenticeships.  Hear directly from a BT recruiter and current apprentice on:
  • Apprenticeships at BT and the different roles available
  • What to expect from an apprenticeship
  • Progression opportunities 
  • Tips on how to apply and make sure your application stands out from the crowd
  • PLUS a Q and A session, so you can get all of your burning questions answered

PwC Flying Start Degree Programmes

PwC are delighted to let you know that they have now opened their Flying Start opportunities for our 2022 intake.
On a Flying Start degree programme, students will have the opportunity to go to university and start their career at the same time. They’ll get to work with world-class clients and be part of some highly skilled teams. Studying at university they’ll get to experience the full-time student lifestyle but with integrated paid placements at PwC, they’ll have some money to enjoy it too. They’ll gain a degree, and hopefully impress them enough to secure a graduate job after they graduate.

If you want to find out more about the programme and join the upcoming session in the Virtual Park; sign up here.  You can also find out more about the programme on the website and students can apply here.

Students can attend in-person at UCL or live online, with some options around the UK too. It is expected that the November Young Lawyer and Young Investment Banker programmes will be fully booked by Friday 15 October.
