Happy 1st of December!

Many thanks & we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Friends of XP – Can you help?

For those of you who haven’t yet heard, FXP are holding our first Ladies Night on the 10th November, from 6pm at school – With a unique mix of stalls available for Christmas shopping, a Pop-Up Pamper Parlour, Mini Bar, Refreshments & more – Tickets are available from the office, FXP members in the car park after school, or at the door on the night, all priced £3 each and include a FREE soft drink, FREE cake/biscuit or mince pie and a FREE raffle ticket! We hope you can make it – However, we are in genuine need of volunteers to help our evening run as smoothly as possible!

With a large number of stall holders and guests expected to attend, there are roles open for anyone who may be able to help set up, take down and run stalls on the night, any time from 3.30pm onwards. Although the evening itself is for ladies, staff/volunteers are of course welcome regardless of gender and whether you can spare ten minutes or 3 hours, your time will be greatly appreciated. We also need donations for our Bottle & Chocolate Tombola if you have any please. Our FXP Crew includes all of us and benefits all our students – it’s your support that helps make it happen and we are sincerely grateful for your input, however large or small.

If you do have any donations, please let us know & drop them at the school in the week beginning Monday 6th November, clearly marked ‘FXP’ and if you would like to be involved in what’s shaping up to be a fab night in less than a few weeks’ time, please contact us (via our FB Page or e-mail and we will happily add your name to our volunteer list.

We have a brilliant raffle going ahead, with prizes donated from each company attending, so if you would like to buy raffle tickets but can’t make it on the night, don’t despair! Our members will be selling tickets in the car park after school in the week leading up to the event itself or you can contact us and we will send out your tickets via the office!

Don’t forget we still have Purple Vouchers books available at £22 each, full of discounts & offers for the whole family, with each one sold generating an instant £5 for ‘Friends of XP’ funds – please share!

We’d like to take a moment to quickly thank everyone who came along to our first ‘Family Quiz Night’, a couple of weeks ago – a great evening was had, with 15 teams taking part and a fantastic buffet provided. We’ve had some lovely feedback with requests to repeat the event next year and a wonderful £150 raised for FXP Funds! We’re so pleased that everyone enjoyed themselves. Special thanks to our members and Duke of Edinburgh students who gave up their Friday night, to help serve our guests and lovely to see so many staff participating too.

Our next meeting for your records is 15th November – 6pm at the school. New members and fundraising suggestions welcome.

Thanks as always for your continued support, look forward to seeing you on the 10th!

Feedback for DofE….

Hi, I wanted to know how year 9 parents feel about how the Duke of Edinburgh award is going? Do you feel you have enough information or are you totally confused about what your kids are doing? I’d love some feedback on it as this is its first year and want to make it a real success for everyone involved. So either put it on here or email me Basically the DofE award is student lead and they are responsible for their progress, however I understand how frustrating it can be from a parent point of view if you feel shut out….. so let me know your thoughts please…..

Duke of Edinburgh helpers wanted.

Are there any parents / carers who would like to volunteer to help with the Duke of Edinburgh activity sessions on a Friday from 2.15pm till 3.15pm? There are activities such as gardening, clean up crew, table tennis, robotics and more. You don’t need to know anything about the activity as they already have a supervisor / assessor, however if you do that would be cool. I could just do with a few helpers. If you’re interested or want more information please email me,
