    Year 7 boys had their first day ‘show day’ on Open Morning this Wednesday; they made an incredibly good job of showing around 30+ sets of visitors, who complimented them on their knowledge, their humour and their positive passion for their school. Thanks boys - you made us #ccproud.

As I hope your sons have reported back in person, we have really got going straight away, and by the time you read this, a truly productive three days has been had by all.

    My main message to the boys at our assembly on Monday was a quote from Garry Herbert, as he steered the Searle brothers to Olympic Gold at Barcelona: “If not now, when! If not you, who!” A reminder that we need to take all the opportunities offered to us.

    My thanks to Mrs Cherie Levi (one of our School Nurses) who led the assembly on Monday.  The sharing of her experiences with ActionAid working in Rwanda was thought provoking and engaged the boys.

    Well done to Year 9, the feedback I have had from Linda Greetham who ran the Study Skills workshops on Monday and Tuesday was excellent. The boys (and girls) were all engaged, polite and hard working.

    My thanks to Rachel Williams our school councillor who gave the assembly on Monday with the theme of 'Kindness'.  This linked very well with the Year 11 led assembly on Thursday where the focus was on 'Anti Bullying'; a very good presentation.

    I am very happy to report that all of the trips and training events that were undertaken over the half term were very successful, even with the cyclone across Lake Garda that the boys tell me was very impressive.
