Congratulations to all Year 13 Students
May 18, 2015
By Mr J Whitelock, Head of Sixth Form
The Year 13 Student Leadership Team have been very active this year

They have shown time and again that they have the ability and commitment to organise and support numerous events (Far too many to mention), for both the whole school and the Sixth Form, ably supported by some enthusiastic Year 12 students.

One of many events was the trek up Snowdon, raising funds for Isabel Hospice. The target set was £2000 and to date this has been exceeded (The total stands at £2,584.00 - 129%). A wonderful effort with bags of enthusiasm was shown by the 14 students (& Mr Hobbs and Miss Loader). Thanks should be given to ALL those who contributed towards the total, without your generosity the money would not have been raised.

By The PE Department
After half term we will be doing the final count up of our vouchers for school. Can I ask that you have one final look around for any more that you would like to donate and send them in via your son or daughter to be handed into their form tutor or PE teacher.

Thank you
