6th July 2018
Yesterday evening, the school held its annual Year 11 Prom. The event was held at Botley Park Hotel and pupils arrived from about 5.45pm, transported in a wide range of vehicles from stretch limousines to vintage race cars, with a huge crowd of family and friends there to cheer on the arrivals. Pupils and staff had a fantastic time and it will definitely be remembered as one of the best proms in recent memory. Thank you to everyone involved and good luck to the Year 11s who now begin the wait for their GCSE results in August.
As one year leaves, a new one arrives and the school has been back to full capacity the past two days with 240 Year 6 pupils joining us for their transition days. They have taken part in a range of activities and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We look forward to seeing them in September.
Next week, the whole-school production of ‘The Little Mermaid’ takes place on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please see the main website for further details of how to obtain tickets.
We will also have reduced dining facilities over the last two weeks of term, as work is beginning to fix a broken pipe under the Dining Hall. Mrs Harrison-Jones has sent a letter to all parents today with further details.
Finally, with the weather still forecast to be hot, we will continue with our relaxed uniform for next week. Please make sure that your children bring a hat, sunscreen lotion and a water bottle every day as we enjoy this historic run of hot weather.

Menu – Dining Hall Update
The school dining area is receiving vital repair works over the forthcoming summer break. In order for the pipe to be fixed, flooring to be re-laid and all works finished in time for the new academic year, we have given the contractors eight weeks for completion; therefore work is starting next week. As per previous communications, we will be running a revised catering menu for these last two weeks of this academic year.
Please see below a menu of items that will be available for all pupils at break and lunchtime.
