The Lions Club of Maidenhead 37th Swimarathon - Sunday 9 January
The 37th annual Swimarathon, run by the Lions Club of Maidenhead, was held at Braywick Leisure centre on Sunday 9 January. The Year 13s shown here, gave up their free time to take part and raise funds for the Sixth Form charity, a school in Brufut, the Gambia. You can still donate to this worthy cause on their Just Giving page.

Reports for both Y12 and Y13 are being written by subject teachers, form tutors and Heads of Year. They will be emailed to parents on Friday 21 January and will be published onto the report portal shortly afterwards.

Independent Living and Budgeting Course for Y13
Next week, Mrs Astrup and Mrs Jakes will start working with students to look ahead to those essential skills and competencies they need for flying the nest to university, gap year or apprenticeships and beyond. On Mondays from 4pm-4.45pm we will look at budgeting, money management and financial literacy. Thursday 4pm-4.45pm will be a lighthearted look at independent living skills such as shopping and cooking for healthy eating, conversation skills and stress management. These courses are open to all Y13 students but spaces are limited, so interested students need to sign up as soon as possible.
