Headteacher’s Notice – 4 October 2019

I am sure you share our awareness that the dark mornings and evenings are starting to draw in and that there is a real autumnal feel to the air. As the weather is starting to become cold it is advisable that children wear appropriate coats and warming clothing when travelling to school, especially if travelling by bus or walking. Continue reading …

Headteacher’s Notice – 20 September 2019

As we are nearing the end of September, our first month back in school, as a Catholic school we reflect on the fact that this month is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows. This may seem a rather despondent title to afford someone but in actual fact it is one filled with hope. It asks us to reflect upon those in our lives who provide us with comfort, understanding, wisdom and guidance when we need it most. Continue reading …

End of Year Letter – 18 July 2019

Dear Parent/Carer, As a school community, this year has again been engaging, interesting and productive for our school. Our academic year began when we gathered as a staff body to commence our new year together by offering mass for our communal intentions. Our students did Continue reading …

Headteacher’s notice – 18 July 2019

Hello, I would like to start this final edition of More News by thanking you as Parents/Carers for your continued support and encouragement. Any job undertaken is always easiest achieved and completed when there is team work. This is certainly the case when we consider the care, support, time and effort communally given by us all to the well being of our children.

We have had a truly exciting and enjoyable end of school year here. I hope that as many of you as our school would fit were able to attend this year’s whole school production of the Wizard of OZ. A truly exceptional performance on each of the three nights – we were well and truly transported to Oz along the yellow brick road and were more than happy to do so – particularly when led by our two adorable Totos – Bella the main star and Ella her understudy. Continue reading …

Headteacher’s notice – 28 June 2019

Hello, I hope you are all well and enjoying the glorious sunshine – a welcome change after all that rain. In true biblical fashion, I pondered the need to build an ark and transferring our students from this building to it!

As is always the case in any school we have had a busy time since the last edition. I was lucky enough to be asked to attend Mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School which was celebrated by His Grace, Archbishop Bernard. I was so pleased to be able to do so and thoroughly enjoyed my time with staff, parents/carers, governors and most importantly of all the students from Holy Trinity. Continue reading …

Headteacher’s notice – 14 June 2019

Hello, as you receive this next edition we will be half way through the month of June and moving swiftly towards the end of this academic year – can you believe it?

If you have been into school you will have noticed that the liturgical focus for this month has changed. During the month of June the church focuses on the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This period of dedication helps us to reflect on the sacrifice made by Jesus on our behalf and also reminds us that we too are called to be compassionate, caring and considerate of others in all we do. Continue reading …

Headteacher’s notice – 24 May 2019

When we return from May half term we will have less than eight weeks until we close for this academic year. In the coming weeks we will welcome our new Year 7 to our community and their families as well.

We have said goodbye to our Year 13 students. Thinking ahead to our Year 7 Induction Evening towards the end of June – I am taken back to the same evening seven years ago when the vast majority of our Year 13 students nervously, anxiously and somewhat excitedly stepped across the threshold of what would be their home for the foreseeable future – and how lucky were we? Continue reading …

Headteacher’s notice – 10 May 2019

I hope you are well. Can you believe we are halfway through May and are nearly upon May half term? Where has this year gone? As I mix with our students at break and lunch time and drop in and out of their lessons, I am particularly drawn to considering our Year 7 students and have been taken aback somewhat by the fact that this time last year they were about to commence their SATS and have now almost completed their first year with us. Continue reading …

Headteacher’s notice – 12 April 2019

Hello, I hope you are ready for our Easter holidays and time to rest and spend quality time with your families. We have celebrated Easter as we usually do with our Easter services. These have been most creative and thought provoking and have allowed us all time to stop and reflect on what it truly means to give to others – especially to those that others may feel it is appropriate to forget or ignore.
