We would like to invite X23 / year 9 parents and carers of students involved in the recent Barcelona study visit to a Presentation of Learning on Tuesday 9th July 2019 from 5.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. in the heart-of-the-school drama area.
Mr Pearson, Mr Jackson and Miss Robinson
Good evening. X23 will be going on their final Fieldwork (weather dependent) tomorrow for Bioshock. For this reason, I would like to suggest that students bring wet weather clothing and footwear as the current forecast suggests rain.
What a great start to the new half term! X23 Skipper started the morning working hard to complete their ink studies. Stippling has needed some dedication and it is paying off: as you can see below. Deadline for this piece of work is: Monday 10th June (students will be able to take their folder home – if need be).
For the next five weeks, both Skipper and Admiral will be going on Fieldwork. This will not effect start or finish times for the day, neither will students require a packed lunch. Students need to be aware of the dates so that they can come to school prepared for being in the outdoors (i.e. clothed appropriate for the weather, sensible shoes and have a bottle for water etc…)
The dates are as follows:
Monday 29th April
Tuesday 7th May
Monday 13th May
Tuesday 4th June
Monday 10th June
Tuesday 30th April
Wednesday 8th May
Tuesday 14th May
Monday 3rd June
Tuesday 11th June
Please do not hesitate to contact myself or Mr Voltaire if you require any further information.

I am available on a Wednesday for extended study if students would like to work in PO8, also they can do it on other days but I am around to help on a Wednesday. Art folders can also be taken home to complete work, this should allow them to meet the deadline.
Thank you, Mrs Cross
With there being no fixtures now until after half term there will be no Rugby or Football training on Monday 15th Oct and Thursday 18th Oct respectively.
Rugby training will resume on the first Tuesday back after half term before a game versus Hall Cross on Wednesday 8th Nov for year 7 and 8 – more details to follow.
Football training will be shelved for boys until after Christmas as the league fixtures are now delayed until it is light enough again to play them after school. Basketball club will begin on Mondays after school in its place.
I will post full after school club info for next half term later this week.
For those parents wanting to attend the Rugby fixture tonight the address is Sheffield Tigers RUFC S17 3AB. We will be setting off asap after school ends and so hope to get there just after 4 – traffic permitting. Once we are there we don’t have any allocated kick-off times but we will be playing any time from then… hope this helps. I will ask students to keep you updated on approximate return time.
I do appreciate there will be weeks where Tassomai can not be done and that the most important thing for students is that they have a rest this holiday, however if Tassomai can be kept ticking over it would be highly beneficial to students.
I would be really grateful your support with this.
To both students and families, please have a wonderful summer and enjoy the deserved rest.
Just as a reminder that the C22 POL will be on Wednesday 4th July for Skipper and Thursday 5th July for Admiral, commencing at 6pm in XP East.
Before the performance, students will be expected to stay for a full dress rehearsal from 3.30pm. Please ensure students are provided with a packed lunch with this in mind, as students will not have time to leave school.
Also, each student needs to be dressed in full black clothing for the performance.
We would really appreciate if you could continue to help your son/daughter learn their lines as the performance draws nearer.
Thanks for your continued support. Looking forward to seeing you there!
I’m delighted to announce that the C22 POL performance of An Inspector Calls will be on Wednesday the 4th July for SKIPPER and Thursday the 5th July for ADMIRAL, from 6pm.
We’d really appreciate if you could help your child to learn his/her lines from their scripts in the meantime. The sooner students learn these the better the performances will be!
Thanks, as always, for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all there!
