Parent Bulletin 17.11.2023
17th November 2023
This week's bulletin is available here.
Dear Parents and Carers
Thank you to all who donated towards our non-uniform day yesterday for Children-In-Need. We raised a wonderful amount of just over £750, which will go a long way to help those in the UK and aboard.
On Monday (20th) our Year 7 and Year 11 pupils will have the remainder of their official school photographs taken. This will involve tutor group photographs but can also be a catch up for any Year 7 or Year 11 pupils who were not in school on the first session. Our Year 8s will also be having tutor group photographs, as they missed out on this last year.
Please ensure that all pupils are wearing their appropriate school uniform on Monday. If any pupils also have PE that day, please ensure that they also have their school uniform to change into for the photographs.
As we move towards December, we have Year 11 mocks coming up, which I’m sure all our Year 11s are studying hard for, and we wish them all the best luck in these. The lower years also have their Christmas socials coming up, with both Year 7 and Year 8 enjoying separate discos on Thursday 30th November, whilst the Year 9s will be going for bowling and food in St Neots on Wednesday 6th December.
Additional dates for your diary include the return of our History Lecture series, starting on Tuesday 5th December at 4pm in our Performance Hall. Helen Carr will talk on “Looking Back: Why History Matters Today”. This is open to everyone and is free of charge, so please come along. On Wednesday 6th December – the Rotary Club Christmas Concert will be featuring our junior choir, our in-school Christmas concert is on the evening of Thursday 14th December and on Monday 18th December, Year 7 and Year 8 are putting on a production of ‘A Christmas Carol’.
We also have our 2nd community litter pick on Saturday 25th November. Please come along and help if you can, all equipment will be provided for you (including refreshments) and it will start at 10am at the Great Cambourne Cricket Pavilion (additional information is inside this week’s bulletin).
We hope you can come along and support all these wonderful events.
We rely on the goodwill of parents to not cause congestion on residential streets within the school locality. We strongly encourage our parents not to drop off and pick up, particularly on Swansley Lane as this is causing issues for residents accessing their property and also compromises the safety of our students travelling to and from school, particularly those travelling on bicycles.
Having spoken to our Safer Schools Police Officer, PC Williams (1052), if any local residents experience any public order offences, she advises residents to report this to the Police, who will then pass this on to the Police and Neighbourhood teams. In addition, residents can contact the parish council to request that yellow lines to be put in.
Wishing you all a pleasant weekend.
