    Our Year 11 pupils delivered a heartfelt assembly about their time at Claires Court to the rest of Senior Girls last Friday.

    I hope you’re all keeping safe and well. As we settle into the end of our first week of remote working, we appreciate that these are difficult and testing times for families as we strive to find our best way of working within the constraints of family units with many of you adjusting to and juggling a new world of distance teaching and learning. Please keep encouraging pupils to contact subject staff if they are finding it difficult to understand or follow instructions given via Google Classroom. The staff have been impressed with your attitude to this new way of working, and the quality of work being produced so well done and keep it up! 

    The last day of term was an extremely emotional day for all and particularly for our Year 11 pupils. I wish to thank Mrs Ruddick, Mrs Sahota, the pupils, tutors and senior staff who worked hard to create a special day for all; an opportunity to look back, to reminisce and to enjoy each other’s company. The day culminated in a final assembly, in the company of the pupil body, where all Year 11s were presented with a silver heart necklace, provided by our PTA, which symbolises the love and affection in which they have always been regarded, and the strong relationships between themselves.

    Our U16 squad were crowned ISA National Netball Champions in Nottinghamshire on Thursday.

    Many congratulations to the U16 squad who achieved the impossible on Thursday by narrowly winning their group stage by drawing with Queen Ethelburga’s, North Yorkshire, in their last group match. The semi-finals proved to be easier than they thought and they quickly went into the lead convincingly beating the Duke of Kent School, 16-6. The final proved to be more of a challenge, although the girls’ confidence was high, they managed to overturn a centre pass to give them the advantage allowing a three goal lead until the final whistle - beating Alderley Edge, Cheshire, 12-9. A wonderful end to the week and well done Miss Gutteridge who is off again today with the U13 Squad.

    On Tuesday afternoon the girls in Years 9 and 10 had an informative talk on drugs and the law from Bob Tait. Bob started the talk by sharing the most up to date information regarding alcohol, drug use (including supply and possession) and the law whilst making it very clear that every individual is responsible for their own decisions. He also spoke about recent cases where the lives of young people and their families have been devastated by poor decision making and not knowing the content of what they were taking. The talk was extremely effective and quite a few pupils have mentioned how much they learned.
