INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND CARERS
New timetables will be given to all students by the end of this week in preparation for the start of our new academic year on Monday 2nd June.
This will coincide with the start of study leave for all Year 11 students who will only be required to attend school to take examinations or attend specified revision sessions after Friday 23rd May.
There will be Maths and Science revision sessions for selected Year 11 students and Science revision sessions for selected Year 10 students during the half term. Students who are required to attend will be informed by their class teachers.
Staffing (Arrivals and Departures)
Mr Smith will be leaving at the end of this week. I am sure you would like to join me in wishing him every success in the future and thank him for his outstanding contribution to the school, and to the outdoor education programme in particular, which he has organised and led with distinction for many years.
Mr Arney and Mr Bassett will also be leaving at the end of this week after making valuable contributions over the last few months as supply teachers in Technology and Mathematics.
As you will be aware from my last update we are delighted to be welcoming three new permanent members of staff. Mrs Hellerman (Drama), Mr Butterworth (Mathematics) and Mr Hall (English) will be joining us from the beginning of June.
Miss Lawson has now begun her maternity leave. She will be replaced by Mr Iliffe for the second half of this term before Miss Cheeseborough joins us in September to cover the remaining period of leave.
New Year Leader
With effect from the 2nd June, Mr Lockyer will be stepping down from his Year Leader role and will be replaced by Mr Wooders who will become Year 8 Leader. We are grateful to Mr Lockyer for the work he has done in leading our current Year 10 students since last September. The Year Leaders from the 2nd June will therefore be:
Mrs Clemson – Year 11
Miss Smith – Year 10
Mr Burnett – Year 9
Mr Wooders – Year 8
Mr Stevens – Year 7
New Tutor Arrangements
Most tutor groups will remain in the same room with the same tutor. Changes are as follows:
11MLR will register in the Electronics room.
10PDS will become 11JDH (Mr Hall) and register in E6 (old GP1).
10JAC will register in H2, but move to M3 in September.
9DTP will become 10ELO (Mr Lockyer) and move to H2 in September.
8SCO will remain in M3 until September, when they will become 9EMM (Ms McKenzie, new Maths teacher from September) and move to M4.
8DIS will become 9MJF (Mr Fletcher) and move to H5.
School closure (Staff INSET Day)
Please note that the school will be closed on Friday 20th June for staff training. This will be the last training day this term.
Finally I would like to thank you for all your help and support during this half term and I look forward to welcoming the students back on Monday 2nd June.
