    PCSO Kelly Farace came to talk to us in assembly about how to stay safe when we are out and about and also what happens if you are stopped and searched, especially important at this time of year. Also, the Sixth Form did a fantastic job on Sixth Form Open Evening. We were hugely grateful to all the students who gave up their time to help out. We could not run this evening without their help. We had around 80 sets of parents visit, who were very complimentary about the quality of our students who they described as confident, personable and articulate.

    Published 10/11/17, by Kim Hall

    The Sixth Form have returned to school refreshed after their half-term break, even those on the Geography trip to Iceland and the Tall Ships Sailing Trip. A big “thank you” must go to Todd Muil, Matt Hine, Chris Allen and Calum Hayes who gave up their time in the holidays to assist The Lions Club of Maidenhead. The Lions were raising awareness of the events they organise locally to raise funds for local charities and they were absolutely thrilled with our students’ efforts. As a thank you, the Lions club want to donate £100 to a charity of the students’ choosing. Here is a great photo of our “Friendly Lions”.

    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.

  • The Heads of Sixth Form Autumn 3

    Published 22/09/17, by Kim Hall

    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.
