Bulletin 11.11.2022

11th November 2022

This week's bulletin is available here.

Dear Parents and Carers

Alongside normal lessons, a number of additional events have taken place this week.  

Our Careers team, assisted by further members of staff, have conducted individual meetings with Year 11 students about their Post 16 course applications.  Thank you to all the parents and carers who’ve been able to join us for these meetings.  It’s always exciting to discuss their future plans with our students as they contemplate moving on from the College at the end of their time with us.  

Year 11 Parent Consultation takes place next Thursday afternoon, 17 November.  Lessons 1 – 4 will be taught in the morning, and all students will leave at 1.30pm, to allow staff to conduct these meetings.  Please contact the Year 11 team if you have had any difficulty in making these appointments.

Additional Events this week:  Year 10 Geography students have enjoyed a workshop on Cartography; Year 11 Animal Care students visited Monarch Farm near Huntingdon to complete their animal handling assessments, and a group of Year 11 students visited Peterhouse College, University of Cambridge, for an Aspirations day.  I’m grateful to all the staff who have provided these enrichment opportunities – and to those who have supported them. 

Remembrance Day was commemorated today with a two minutes’ silence at 11.00am. It was good to see the number of pupils proudly wearing their armed services cadet uniform to school to mark this occasion.  The History Department have led assemblies for each year group, across the week; this year’s theme commemorated the work of Edith Cavell.

Flu immunisations will take place at the College on 16th December and 13th January.  Information will be sent out in due course once we have received this.

Children in Need  We will hold a non-uniform day on Friday 18 November to support this charity, and pupils will be asked to contribute £1.00 towards the fund.   The theme of the day is SPOTS, so costumes supporting this will be very welcome.  Please ensure that your children wear clothing that is suitable for school: skirts and shorts should be closer to the knee than to the bottom, and tops should cover the shoulders and whole stomach.  

I hope that you all have a very pleasant weekend.

Yours sincerely

Claire Coates
