Headmaster’s Letter 3rd December

Posted on 3rd December 2021

Dear Parent,

 

Autumn concert

Despite the new guidance for mask wearing in Schools, we intend to run our extra-curricular events. Next Wednesday at 7pm is our Autumn concert. To ensure that we can maintain reasonable space in the gym, this will be a ‘ticket only’ event. We have 200 spaces for the audience. Please go to the ParentMail shop if you would like to reserve a space. To ensure as many students as possible are supported, please only reserve two tickets per family. You can reserve seats from 7.30pm tonight. We might need the doors open in the Gym, so please wrap up warm.

Friends’ Christmas Wish List

Students have been given a hard copy of the Friends’ wish list to take home today. There have been some additional requests which have been added to the letter attached. If you can support any of our departments with either buying gifts or donating, it will help departments immensely. Further details are in the letter

Facemasks

Thank you for your support on wearing facemasks in School communal areas. I have been asked to share the local authority’s guidance on wearing facemasks on public or school dedicated transport with you.

 

 

House Cross Country

There was a mistake in last week’s House Cross Country Results. The winning house was Rawlinson. Apologies to the head of house, Mrs Cooke and the sports captains Owen Noble and Karolina Pilch.
