The Head of School Reports:

Chris Taylor, Head of SchoolLast Tuesday, with a small group of colleagues, I attended the Essex Teaching Awards Ceremony in Chelmsford to support nominations for Neil Gallagher and Andrew Chitsakamile.
Neil had been shortlisted for Secondary Headteacher of the Year and there were just two nominations considered for this award. Whilst Neil just missed out on the top spot, he was acknowledged with a Highly Commended certificate and his hard work and dedication was commended by the Director of Education at Essex County Council.
Andrew Chitsakamile was also recognised at the awards. Andrew was nominated by one of his students in the category of Student Choice Award, a very prestigious category. Andrew too, received a Highly Commended certificate to acknowledge his achievements as a teacher and the words taken from the nomination form written by the student were full of praise and very moving. Congratulations to both Neil and Andrew; recognition well deserved.
A further tribute must be made this week to all those involved in the Les Misérable school musical. I had the absolute pleasure to be there at opening night on Thursday evening and I have to say that I was completely blown away by the performance. I have been to many school musicals over the years, all of which must be commended, but the seamless flow of the performance combined with the difficulty and quality of the vocals was something that left me overwhelmed and very proud. A standing ovation at the end of the show was well-deserved and this was equalled at the other performances, which took place on Friday evening and both Saturday afternoon and evening.
Congratulations to all of those involved, and to the staff who supported and worked with these students, many, many thanks to all of you. The effort that it takes to put all of this together should not be underestimated and I know that the students who staff have coached in this musical performance, will truly remember this for the rest of their entire lives. Without doubt, it will be a hard act to follow, but I am sure the next planned show for the summer; School of Rock, will give just as good.
The week beginning 4th March will be National Careers Week, and we have many events planned for all the students to help support and inform them of the possible career choices available. It also happens just ahead of a very important time for our Year 8 students as they are heading towards making their preferred choices for the subjects they will be considering for study at Key Stage 4, which they begin at the start of Year 9.
It is half term next week and a well-deserved short break and rest for both staff and students and a reminder that Monday 25th February is a staff training day, so students are not required to attend until Tuesday 26th February.
Other stories, pictures and information can be found in this week's Parent News or on this website.
