It’s been an emotional end of term as our Year 11 spent their last full day in school today. With effect from next half term, they will be in school for examinations only, and the subjects for which they have yet to sit an examination. The final day is always an important rite of passage for Year 11 students as their sights switch towards future destinations next year …. we hope they will use the break to keep focused on revising for those examinations. The examination timetable can be accessed here for next half term.
It was lovely on Wednesday to meet 33 parents from our upcoming Year 6 students, as they attended our Year 6 Coffee Morning in our library. They had lots of questions to ask our staff, and were excited to hear of the plans for the new building. Remember that parents of our existing students are invited in next half term, on Tuesday 5th July, to hear of these plans in more detail as well as some of our other school developments.
I was privileged on Wednesday evening to attend our Key Stage 3 Music Performance Evening, featuring soloists and ensembles from Years 7, 8 and 9. It was a wonderful occasion with solos from Eve Handley, Harry Ainsworth, George Wilson and Rose Warburton as well as performances from our choir group Seventh Key, the Swing Band, a Flute and vocal trio and a trumpet quartet. So much talent on view: thanks to all those who contributed to a celebration of music.
Congratulations to Saul Robinson in Year 11 who this week finished 4th in Europe in a European Motorsports Competition. A budding star for the future.
This afternoon (Friday 27th) students on the forthcoming European Tour will be helping customers to pack their shopping at Morrisons in Bredbury. This is to raise funds for the trip which is coming up soon in our final half term. Perhaps we'll see you there if you happen to be doing your shopping?!
All that remains to say is for everyone to enjoy their half term break. We will be back on Monday 6th June at 8.40am. Have a great break!
