I would like to invite you to attend the Parents’ Evening for Year 10 students. This is an excellent opportunity for all parents and guardians to come along and meet the members of staff who have been teaching your children. For this evening, we are using an online appointment system which will give you the chance to make a 5 minute appointment with each of your child’s subject teachers to discuss progress and achievement, you can also make an appointment with myself as Head of Year.
The new term starts on Tuesday 23rd April 2019 – Students return to school at 9:30am.
As we approach the Easter break, we look forward to rest and rejuvenation. Easter is a time for new beginnings and re-focus. In the 40 days before Easter, Christians observe Lent by entering into a period of self-examination and repentance through prayer. It would be beneficial that all of our students reflect on the past term and their successes, but also that they think carefully about how they can improve and move forward in the next term to strive for excellence.
On the 7th of February 2019, a group of year 10 students had the opportunity to visit Oxford University – St Peter’s Campus. They were given a talk on degrees they can study, facilities and opportunities available followed by a tour of the campus. The students got to share lunch and have a chat with current Oxford students. Later on students were given a tour of Oxford and what it offered. The day ended with students doing a taster course in English where they discussed ‘should books be banned’ a very emotive subject. Students had a very enriching day and got to ask questions about Oxford University and had a taste of what University life might offer. Well done all.
Students attended were: Zara, Monica, Boran, Neo, Raymond, Grace, Rhianna, Alexander, Zayn and Elise.
An amazing start to the new Dance club has seen full capacity at every session. Both boys and girls have been choreographing a street dance performance and have lots of fun on the way!! A reminder to all students/parents that the commitment to extra-curricular activities has a proven impact on exam results whilst reducing stress in young people.

Dear parents and carers,
Child staying over and in your care – Who knows where they are?
Children are among the most vulnerable members of society and this is intensified when they are unaccounted for and potentially missing. As adults, we have a moral and legal obligation to safeguard them. The Metropolitan police are therefore seeking your assistance to enable the whereabouts of children to be known to those responsible for their care, especially when sleeping away from their usual home address.

Congratulations to Rachael Chyke for her successful performance for Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge at St Anne’s Catholic High School. Despite being one of the last contestants to perform, Rachael’s passionate, articulate and inspiring speech “What colour do you see?” energised the entire audience and thoroughly impressed the judges. Rachael came second out of fifteen for the Regional Final – a fantastic achievement!
We are delighted to inform you of a new addition to our programme
starting Thursday 7th March.
We are in the process of setting up a Dance club focusing on Street Dance that will run after school on Thursday’s 3:45 – 4:35pm. This will be FREE and open to all students who can commit to every session. PE kit is required. The aim is for the group to choreograph a performance at the end of the 12 week block. If your child is interested in this they must see Ms Ali (Science) and register their interest. We only have space for 20 students and the start date is Thursday 7th March 2019.
