This week, Year 7 pupils took part in an Art trip to Southampton. Pupils had an opportunity to experience an art gallery setting and were introduced to the wider world of Art, Craft and Design – a key experience as part of the school’s broad and balanced curriculum. Thank you to all of the staff who arranged this and also to the pupils, whose behaviour was exemplary.
Years 9 and 10 successfully took part in an Athletics meet this week – congratulations to all those involved.
There are some changes to the Dining Hall taking place at Cams Hill School at the end of this term. Please see the letter from Mrs Harrison-Jones (Headteacher) on the school’s website for more information as well as notice regarding the arrangements for the start of the new academic year.
Finally, we hope that you all have a restful half-term and look forward to seeing all of the pupils back in a week’s time.
