Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents & Carers

We are looking for some help from our community. Before the summer, two of our senior students in Year 13, Lauren Fardoe and Sophie Shelton, put forward their ideas for trying to reduce the carbon footprint of our school. Their ultimate desire is to create a carbon neutral school. Our initial discussions highlighted the fact that, whilst we all know the term ‘carbon neutral’, a full understanding of what it entails and how to achieve it is harder to grasp.

Since then, a few other students have expressed a desire to be involved. This week Amita Kumar in Year 10 attended a public meeting with local MP Matt Western and asked a very pertinent and well informed question about carbon emissions. And more students are coming forward every day wanting to voice their concerns and get involved. (more…)


Announcements

Head lice in school

We’ve been made aware that there are a number of instances of head lice in school. Please check your children for head lice and treat appropriately. Recommended methods of treatment can be found on the NHS website. Thank you.

Message from Deputy Head, Mr Jones

Over the past three weeks we’ve had lots of ex-students coming back to school to say hello and update us on what they are doing. It is always great to see them, share memories and hear about what they are up to. The stories we share tend to be about what they did outside of class: the trips, sporting events, clubs, activities, and so on that they took part in. (more…)


Events

SEND events

SEND Supported are a team of education consultants who support learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). On their website they publish a list of events such as parent drop-ins, tailored sessions for parents of children with autistic spectrum conditions, plus social and other activities for children and young people. You can see the full list on their What’s On page.

Teacher Training Day – Wednesday 25 September

A reminder that next Wednesday is a teacher training day and school will be closed for students during the day. Our school Open Evening will be taking place between 5-8pm. Thank you to all the students who have volunteered to help at the event. We will look forward to seeing all student volunteers at 4.30pm in the Dining Hall for a briefing.

Film Club for Years 7 & 8

Would your child like to produce and star in their very own film and enter film festivals? If so, Ms Hotten will be running a film club called ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’ for Years 7 and 8 every Wednesday after school starting on Wednesday 2 October.

Please tell them, to come to C5 between 3.10pm – 4.15pm and bring a drink and a snack with them.
