We have reached the end of term!

Pupils have enjoyed their non-uniform day today bringing in items for us to take to the Gosport and Fareham Food (Basics) Bank. Along with donations for Mission Christmas, our Reception area is bursting; it is heart-warming to experience the generosity of our school community. Thank you!



All year groups have attended their Celebration Assemblies this week, with Year 11 attending theirs today. So many pupils have achieved so much this term in a variety of subjects and activities and they should all be very proud of themselves.

We return to school at 0830 on Monday 6 January 2019 for a normal school day. In the meantime, we wish all our pupils, parents, carers, staff and wider community a very Merry Christmas!

Please read on for more information about our last week of term …



Care Home Christmas Party

Our Year 8 pupils raised an amazing £1374.52 for our Senior Citizens Christmas party which we hosted here in school on Monday afternoon.

All who attended had a fantastic festive time which included singing, dancing, eating, present giving and chatting. Many of the Senior Citizens shared their memories with our pupils; our oldest guest was an amazing 103. Thank you to all parents and carers who supported our pupils in fund raising enabling us to host such a fantastic and worthwhile event.



Kindness at Cams Hill School

The Kindness group is going from strength to strength. This half term we have arranged the foodbank donations (which have been amazing), sold Christmas baubles to raise money for the House Charities (Paying Forward messages of Christmas cheer) and have also been involved in the brilliant Senior Citizens’ Christmas Party. As always, the pupils and staff at Cams overwhelm me with their kindness and generosity. 😊 Merry Christmas from Team Kindness.

Service Pupil Premium

The school can obtain funding based on the number of pupils who have a parent serving in the regular armed forces. Please see our website for information on how this funding is spent. If your child meets these criteria and you have not already informed us, please email office@camshill.com.
