I hope you all a had a good Easter break and have enjoyed some of the sunshine. I am looking forward to a great summer term which will be a combination of great academic work and the opportunity to re-introduce some other activities (as far as the COVID safety measures allow). We plan to have two deep learning days on the 26th and 27th May; Year 7 will have the opportunity to go to Kew Gardens as part of their Art curriculum and the Year 8 will go on a Geography Field trip. Year 9 will not miss out as they will have a Shakespeare performance of Macbeth (to support them with GCSE English) and the opportunity to work with staff form Greenwich Observatory for Maths and Science. In June and July, we are planning two outdoor activity days, an Arts Festival, Sports Day and Duke of Edinburgh camping trips for Year 9. We continue to closely follow all of the COVID guidance for keeping everyone safe.
The summer term is also about working hard and doing well in the end of year exams. The week of the 14th June is exam week for all year groups. On the 17th May, we will be holding a revision evening for parents which will provide information on the exams and different strategies that you can use to support your children with revision. More details will follow closer to the time. I am pleased to report that the students have settled back in very quickly and have shown that they are committed to their studies. The teachers have planned a great curriculum which will allow students to gain all the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.
Best wishes for an excellent Summer Term,
