Happy Easter

Happy EasterToday signifies the end of the Spring Term with two weeks Easter holiday to enjoy before we return to school for the Summer Term on Tuesday, 23rd April at 8.45am. We would also like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Easter; try not to eat too many chocolate eggs!

Please Note: There are a number of revision sessions scheduled throughout the holiday for students taking exams this summer. These have been arranged individually between staff and their students and are by invitation only. If you are a parent of a student who has been invited, can we 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, we hope that the students show their appreciation by attending. Please see website homepage ‘Events List’ for full details.

Charity Bike Ride for Cancer ResearchCharity Bike Ride

Last weekend, Year 8 student Grace, was one of over a thousand cyclists who took part in the Suffolk Spring Classic bike ride around villages near Newmarket. She completed the 31 mile course in a time of 3hrs 50mins and raised £123 for Cancer Research in the process. Grace is also taking part in the Clacton Relay for Life in July to raise even more money for the charity. Well done Grace!

Year 9 Parents’ Evening – 25th April

A reminder for parents and carers of Year 9 students that, during the week after the Easter holiday, they are invited to attend a Year 9 Consultation Evening on Thursday 25th April from 4pm to 7pm. This is an ideal opportunity to discuss the progress of your child with their form tutor and subject teachers.
