The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolAs the clocks 'sprung' forward this past weekend, we have now officially entered British summer time. After some very pleasant, warm spring days, this coming week the weather has decided to 'fool' us with a decided chill back in the air; very disappointing, but fingers crossed the warmth and sunshine returns for the Easter holidays beginning next week, Monday, 8th April.
During the holidays, some areas of the school will remain open for special upper school revision sessions. These have been arranged individually between staff and their students and are by invitation only. If you are a parent to a student who has been invited, I urge you to impress upon them the importance of making the most of this additional support. Remember, staff are prepared to give up their holiday and family time to commit to their students, I hope that the students show their appreciation by attending. Students must register with their teacher for each session.
We welcome back to school on Tuesday, our intrepid explorers of the Spanish capital city of Madrid. I have heard that they enjoyed a very balmy 20 degrees, and if previous trips are anything to go by, I know all would have had a very good time and learnt a great deal from this enrichment opportunity.
Almost as one trip returns another one leaves. On Saturday, 6th April, 56 skiers are off to Tonale in Italy accompanied by eight members of staff. No doubt, bags are packed and there will be a lot of excitement within the group. For many of the students, this will be their first experience of the slopes and I know they will have an amazing time. To both sets of staff supporting the trips, who have set aside their own personal time, huge thanks on behalf of the students and, I am sure, their parents.
This week continues to be very, very busy. Sporting fixtures include Coastal Girls' football finals on Tuesday and Coastal Schools Rugby finals on Wednesday. There is a STEM trip to the EngFest event, an engineering festival in London, a Maths Masterclass at Philip Morant for a group of talented mathematicians, a Dance performance evening on Tuesday after school, a trip to the Theatre Royal in Norwich, a Sigma Trust Poetry Slam hosted by our school and an extremely important 'invitation only', Year 11 Parents' Evening on Thursday. Alongside all of this, maths mock exams continue for Year 11.
As you can see, school life is not just about lessons, it is so much more than that, each week the calendar is full of events and activities as well as all the other regular extra-curricular clubs. All of these are very well-supported by eager participants, your children. We are very PROUD of our school community and have very high expectations. With this in mind, I am writing to all parents this week, with some important reminders about uniform and mobile phones, and I hope that I can rely on your support.
Chris Taylor, Head of School
