Summer Music Concert
We would like to invite you to our Summer Music Concert on Thursday 17th July 2014 at 7.00pm in the main hall.  Tickets are available in advance via ParentPay at a cost of £5.00 per adult and £2.00 per child/concession to include refreshments.  Once payment is received, students will be able to collect tickets from the Music Faculty.

This is an excellent opportunity for students in Key Stage 3 to show you what they have been learning in class and for GCSE students to perform in a formal concert in front of a large audience.

We do hope that you will be able to support this event, which promises to be an enjoyable evening.
Mr P Charalambous – Head of Music

Return of Overdue Books – Learning Zone
Further to the previous request regarding overdue books, some of which have still not been returned.  It would be greatly appreciated if you would kindly remind your child to return their overdue book to the Learning Zone.  If the book has been lost, please would you either provide a replacement copy or pay the cost of the book by ParentPay as per the letter.
Thank you for your support.
Mrs K Bedocs – Learning Zone Assistant

English Novels
Letters have gone out to Year 7 to 11 students regarding English books that have not been returned.  Some books have been returned and some parents have very kindly responded to the letter.  However the English Faculty still have a number of books outstanding, this will have an effect on next year where students may not be able to have a book to take home if not all books are returned.

If you received a letter and have not returned a book, please could you return the book to the English Office.
The books are:

  • Year  7 – ‘Holes’
  • Year  8 – ‘Hidden’ or ‘Noughts & Crosses’
  • Year  9 – ‘Martyn Pig’
  • Year 11 – ‘Of Mice & Men’/’ Lord of the Flies’

Thank you.
Miss V Cheyne – Head of English

Head Lice
Please check your child’s hair for head lice, particularly if they are in Year 7 as there have been a few cases recently.
