    A very big thank you to all the students who volunteered to help with car park duty at the fireworks last weekend. They were a huge help and also looked great in their hi-viz jackets!  The Sixth Form have been working hard over this half term and now deserve some holiday time. A number of Year 12s have said how quickly the time has gone as they have been “having fun”.

    Dr Joe Organ from Brasenose College, Oxford, visited us on Tuesday. He spoke to a group of prospective Oxbridge applicants from Year 12 about university life at Oxford and Cambridge and the application process. Our students are always inspired to “Aim Higher” and Dr Organ did some myth-busting with the students about the truths of studying at Oxford and Cambridge and also about the challenges that students face, including the 3-step process of application, testing and interview.

    Our Heads of School, Camilla Slais and Todd Muil, did an amazing job of hosting the 2017 Speech Day. They also found time to put together an excellent eight minute video of school life which perfectly showed the many activities that take place across the sites. Our Guest of Honour, Lord James O’Shaunessy, himself an alumnus of Claires Court, was very ably introduced by Year 13, Todd Lindley. Todd had previously met Lord O’Shaunessy at the House of Lords when Todd collected his ISA prize for his outstanding academic achievements at GCSE.
