Headmaster’s Letter 21st May

Posted on 21st May 2021

Dear Parent

Literature quiz

One of our two teams entered in the East Midlands heat of the National Reading Champions Quiz came an impressive second this week. Students Beth Crowther and Hebe Gabel (both Y9) have written this report:

We very much enjoyed the Quiz; it was an amazing day which we made friends, learnt a lot and had a great time. The questions were challenging but very cleverly picked. It was an amazing team building opportunity too. The quizmaster, Mr Dilly, was very funny, and created an entertaining and light-hearted atmosphere which persevered even through the challenges of a sudden (though, luckily, short) WiFi failure at his end. On the whole, the day was one of friendly competition, jokes, and – of course – books. If you get the chance to participate in a future quiz, we would recommend it one hundred percent – it was one of the best events of the year!

The teams were:

Team 2  Team 1 
Ellie Linford (Y8)

 

60 points

2/34

 Kacper Wroblewski (Y8) 

 

48 points

16/34

Patrick Walker (Y8)

 

  Linqing Yang (Y8)

 

 
Beth Crowther (Y9)

 

  Hebe Gabel (Y9)

 

 
Peter Jackson (Y9)

 

  Emily Rodgers (Y9)

 

 

All eight used their time away from school – and no homework during lockdown – well!

COVID update

From Monday, we removed the expectation that students and staff would wear facemasks while on site. Those who wish to wear a facemask can still do so. At the same time, it is important to remember that we all need to follow the safeguards to protect ourselves and others. These are: participating in the home testing system, maintaining good respiratory and hand hygiene, maintaining social distance where possible, self-isolating if you or a member of your household receives a positive test, or you are symptomatic. Face masks/ covering must be worn on school and public transport.

Despite the weather, I hope you have a good weekend,

Alistair Hopkins

Headmaster
