Wednesday and Thursday’s Year 11 drama performances were extremely impressive, with many of the performers displaying a maturity of performance beyond their chronological years. I would like to wish our Year 11 students every success in the forthcoming examinations; we are now counting down the days. Many of our students and staff will be working in school throughout the whole of the Easter holidays, in addition to every night after school. There is a quiet confidence coming from the girls. It appears they are determined to beat the record set by last year’s Year 11!
Our charity fundraising continues; almost £1200 has been raised for Sports Relief. Our current top fundraiser is Alice Evans in 7F who has single handedly raised over £100. Congratulations to Alice and everyone involved in this. On Thursday, further charity fundraising will take place with an Easter egg hunt organised by the Eat or Heat team.
As we reach the final days of an intensely busy but highly rewarding and pleasurable Spring term, I would like to thank all students, staff, carers and governors for their ongoing support for the school. On behalf of our staff, I wish you all a happy Easter break and look forward to seeing your daughter back in school at the normal time on Tuesday April 22nd.
