Headteacher’s Notice – 10 February 2023

Taken from the latest issue of More News:

Hello, I hope this edition finds you well. Thankfully the first glimmer of spring has arrived as the mornings are brighter earlier and remain so for longer.

The season of Lent will begin whilst we are on half term with the celebration of Ash Wednesday. Upon our return we will commence our charitable endeavours as follows:

  • Year 7:  Fr Hudson’s 
  • Year 8: Cafod
  • Year 9: Goods in support of those affected by the earthquake in Turkey
  • Years 10-13: Goods in support of our local food banks

We will hold our usual non-uniform day on Friday March 31st. The money raised will be used to support our Year 12 students fundraising to attend our Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes during May half term and Mrs Weighell who intends to run the London Marathon in support of Alzheimer’s charities.

In further support of the above we are planning to host a Quiz Night in school and a jumble sale within the St Newman Cluster, relevant dates and details to follow.

We would ask you to keep both our Year 10 and 11 students in your prayers during the month of March as both year groups will undertake their next round of internal assessments or PPEs.

Currently both our Year 10 and 12 students are actively engaged in securing their placements for Work Experience. The dates for each are published on our website. Please do get in touch if you think you might be able to help in supporting us by providing a placement.
