One of the gallery staff, involved with our Year 10 boys when we went to the Tate Britain in January, was Veronica Seifert, who led our group through producing a series of fabulous works which had been inspired by the talk they were given. We believe that our boys' work is amongst that included in an exhibition at the Tate Modern of examples of schools' workshop outcomes — what an achievement!
The work of our A Level students is on display in the Chapel at College. Visitors will be welcome to view from Friday 29 June until Wednesday 4 July. It is open throughout the day and we would ask that visitors sign in at Reception when they arrive. The exhibition is well worth a visit.
Mr Roach would like to thank all those who participated in the Concert last night. Everyone performed well and delighted the audience. Enjoy the Summer Break and come back refreshed to prepare for Speech Day and the Concert in November. Things never stop!!
What a fantastic afternoon. So much fun and all in one place. There is no doubt that the young people (very young!) thoroughly enjoyed the inflatable assault course and wrestling as well as the snakes and reptiles! There was something for everyone and it was no surprise that the barbecue and chips sold out, and the bar did a roaring trade as did the refreshments — those ladies must have been shattered at the end of the day. All the games and attractions were well supported and the whole afternoon was a truly Olympian piece of fun. Takings on the day were up on last year, pennies and pounds are still being counted but the profit looks good and we'll let you know when all the totting up has been done!
There will be early coaches (departing at 4.30pm)
Full information has been posted home.
Until Thursday 12 July.
Full information has been emailed home — if for any reason you have not received this please ring Mrs Whetton 01628 411470 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline is Monday 2 July.

Pupils may go blazerless if they wish — so that if you are wishing to sell your son's blazer, there is time to get it dry cleaned beforehand. Please bring in to school any uniform or sports kit that you wish to sell, clearly labelled by Friday 6 July.
A print of the photo is available to view at School if you wish to see the ‘real’ thing!
A black leather shoe, last seen at a cricket match at either Station Ground or Phoenix, belonging to a Year 8 pupil — please check your son's kit bag for any extra items that may not be his.
