The (very) Big Dance

Year 7 took part in the Big Dance.

The (very) Big Dance 

Yesterday afternoon, in the very warm sun, every Year 7 student took part in a brilliant event. 300 students (along with ten members of the PE staff) took part in a several minute dance. All of our students danced at the same time in the playground to a medley, including songs from the recent West End adaptation of Roald Dahl’s Matilda and a Madness classic. There is something really special about students performing together, in time with one another, and cooperating so brilliantly – it was just superb.

Head Students for 2023-24

I am incredibly proud to tell you that Holly and Omar have been selected to be our Head Students for the next school year. Over 20 of our Sixth Form students wrote substantial letters of application, and the process continued with interviews and presentations. I know that Holly and Omar will be brilliant role models for the school, but we will also spend the next few weeks trying to firm up other leadership roles for the many brilliant people we have in our Sixth Form.

Stars of the week

Congratulations to all the students below for their hard work and endeavours which has seen them achieve well. We are very proud of their achievements. Well done.

Please help us with school drop off

I have to tell you that there have been a number of occasions over the last few weeks that the safety of our students has been put at risk when they approach school. This has included parents parking on the yellow zig zag lines immediately outside of school. These yellow lines are deliberately located to create a safe ‘exclusion zone’ around school entrances – families parking on these are creating risk and danger. Some parents complete three point turns in the road after dropping off, causing congestion and further risk for students crossing the roads. Frustratingly, some families also park across the drives of local residents, causing inconvenience for our nearest neighbours. 

I know I give this message from time to time, and often the situation improves in the short term. But I need to remind all parents that drive into Grennell Road, or the roads immediately around the school at the peak drop off time, each additional car on the road has the potential to cause issues for our students. If you do drop your youngster at school please consider doing this a few roads away from the school. In doing this we can dilute the number of cars in any one location and reduce the risk.

Thank you for your support and I hope you all have great weekends.
