To the parents, Wishing you all a very happy and restful Summer break

We are fast approaching the end of the school year and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and restful Summer break.

The past week has been a busy one, with all of our students taking part in various educational challenges and school trips.  Our Year 10 students have worked diligently to complete their end of year exams, preparing them for the important year ahead.

When we return in September, arrangements for the new school year are as follows:

Thursday 4th September :               Staff INSET day – School closed to students.

 Friday 5th September:                       Year 7 and Year 12 Induction Day

EMS Piano Competition 2014

This year was the first EMS Piano Competition. We entered Fung-Yee Poon (Year 11) who managed to achieve a runner up (2nd) place out of 76 pianists entered from all the schools in the Borough.

Official photographs of this event were taken by Stephen Scrase. I understand that he will be putting these photos online over the weekend so they should be available to purchase by the beginning of next week. These will be available at They will be in a gallery called “Gallery 16366 PianoFestival” and can be accessed by logging in with username: MUSIC and password: PIANO

As this event was very popular and successful this year we’ve decided to make it an annual event. Many thanks for taking part in this year’s competition and I look forward to hearing more of your pupils play next year.
