PE Update

After an unbeaten season last year in Year 7 our district and county cup champions set about another year of dominance. This year they are not only entered into the two competitions they won last year, district cup (6-1 winners) and county cup (8-0 winners) but also the national cup.

The boys are lucky enough to have a brand new kit, courtesy of parental support, mainly from our kit sponsors Rack Storage Systems. The boys and the school are extremely grateful for this generous donation, please check out their website

The new kit certainly spurred them on in the first competitive game in the county cup against St Clement Danes School with goals from Andiyapan, Shaw and Smith x 5 making a massive score line of a 7-3 win in round one. Andiyapan’s hard work in defence along with his skill going forward meant he also won man of the match.

The boys go into the national cup round one next week with a great confidence from their impressive start to the season and the new kit (pictured below).

Text Messaging Service

Following our successful pilot in Years 10 to 11 last week, we will be extending our text messaging service to all parents from Years 7 to 11 from next week.  Texts will be sent for being late to registration and for absence from school.  The 'late' text will be to inform you of the fact that your son was late to school so that you can discuss the importance of punctuality with him. The 'absence' text will be sent to parents who have not communicated with school regarding their son's absence asking them to contact the school to give a reason for the absence.  The aim of the texts is to communicate these two key elements to you effectively and efficiently to ensure the safety of all of our pupils.
