I have been overwhelmed by the displays created by our students and led by the History department. Lots of people have said how poignant it is. I agree that it is a very touching tribute. This morning the Senior Prefects and Student Council helped raise our commemorative flag outside the front of the school. Thank you to Harry in Year 7 for playing the Last Post and to Mrs Dorman for reading ‘For the       Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon. The 6th Form have also created their own display and held a service this morning at the 6th Form campus. Hayley Andrews in Year 11, sang ‘With You’ from Ghost the musical at the Year 11 assembly this morning allowing everyone time to reflect and remember. 

Well done to all the students and staff who helped raise over £800 at our last mufti day. Green House raised the most with £245.45, then Red House £212.15, followed by Blue House £209.52 and Yellow £170.34.

Don't forget the next mufti day will be on the last day of term, Friday 21st December. As well as mufti students are encouraged to wear their Christmas jumpers for a donation of £1. Just a reminder though that clothes have to be appropriate for wearing to school eg no crop tops. All money raised goes to our charity, Aspire Ryde.

We will be sending letters out shortly with information about the last day of term but students will finish at 12.20pm and the school bus will leave at 12.30pm

Next week, Wednesday 14th November, we have our 6th Form Opening Evening which is a great opportunity for anyone thinking of post 16 study to come and speak to subject teachers and look around our 6th Form campus. There will be talks at 4.30pm and 6pm.

Congratulations to this weeks Principal Star Joshua Ashley (Year 12). Josh recently helped in a Year 7 ICT class and proved that he was a natural with the students. He helped explain topics and engaged in discussions with them. The Year 7s loved having him in their class and thanked him at the end. Well done to him for having the confidence and stepping up to the challenge.

Have a nice weekend.
