Last week of Autumn term

13th December 2018

These are the arrangements for the last week of the Autumn term.

  • Monday 17th December and Tuesday 18th December are as normal.
  • Wednesday 19th December. The lower school have a panto trip in the morning and the upper school have a cinema trip in the afternoon. Details of these trips have been sent out previously. Pupils will be in tutor groups for the remainder of the day.
  • Thursday 20th December. A turkey dinner will be available at lunchtime to all those pupils who have already pre-ordered. Please note that no other food will be available at break or lunch that day so pupils may need to bring packed lunches.
  • Friday 21st December. This is the last day of the term and will finish at 2pm. It is a non-uniform day and pupils are welcome to wear Christmas jumpers. There will be a charity collection for Save the Children with voluntary contributions of £1.
  • Pupils return on Tuesday 8th January at the usual time. Please note that we will be checking uniform during that week and so it is important that any uniform issues are rectified over Christmas. Just a reminder that all pupils need to be in the new grey uniform by the start of the next academic year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
