Issue 911: 4th December 2020

2020/2021 Exams

As you will have seen in the news, the Government has announced details concerning this year’s GCSE and A-Level exams, providing some much needed clarity. I will write further about this as soon as more detailed information becomes available.

Remote Learning Policy

We have now finalised our Remote Learning Policy, which is available to view on our website. As well as ensuring a consistent approach to remote learning for pupils who are self-isolating at home, it sets out our expectation to the whole school community, and signposts access to some really good resources and documents which will help to support our pupils in their remote learning.

Sixth Form Charity Week

Next week is our annual Sixth Form Charity Week. This year we are supporting Brain Tumour Research, as well as the Teddy Hewitt Foundation which assists families in need of financial and physical support following the passing of a child. There are various events being run across the school, including Candy Cane ordering, a charity Raffle, Staff Quiz, and a non-school uniform day on Thursday 10th December 2020, themed around movie and TV show characters.

Christmas Jumper Day

We will also have a Christmas Jumper Day on the last day of term, Thursday 17th December. All proceeds raised from donations will go towards supporting Macy Window, about whom I wrote last week, to help contribute to all of the physiotherapy treatment and equipment Macy will need to help her recover from her life-changing car accident.

Book of the Week

ENOLA HOLMES: THE CASE OF THE MISSING MARQUESS
by Nancy Springer

“When her mother disappears on her fourteenth birthday, Enola Holmes – the much younger sister of the famous detective Sherlock – suddenly finds herself in the care of her brothers. While Sherlock begins to investigate, his brother Mycroft sets about sending Enola away to boarding school. But Enola has other ideas, deciding to track her mother down herself. But the trail leads to another missing person and the deadly dangerous streets of Victorian East London.”

If you enjoyed the recent Netflix film, then why not read the book?

A great combination of action, adventure and mystery!
