Update from the Head

Posted 9/10/2013

I am aware that last week was a difficult for some parents with the school having to close on Tuesday. I can assure you that this was not what we wanted to do - but there was no real option. The boys coped well with the additional travel and the LA were very supportive in arranging for the additional taxies.

Rosedale had to postpone their trip to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park last week due to the closure - but they were able to go on Monday this week. They all enjoyed the experience and saw animals they had not seen before. One even mistook a zebra for a leopard!

This week our year 10 group are out on their first work experience. This is a good first taste for them - we use some well established local placements where we know they will be well looked after. The early feedback is very positive!

Next week we have two football tournaments - on for Primary and one for Secondary. I'm sure the boys will do well and represent the school as well as the tag rugby team did at the start of the term.

All back at school and back into the swing of things at the start of the 2013 - 2014 academic year. The summer holidays now seem a very long time ago! It was lovely to welcome all the boys back to school last week. Everyone seemed happy enough to be back and the atmosphere around the school has been very good indeed - and 32 black passes in week 1!!

Today sees the launch of this new website. There has been a lot of work to put it all together led by Mrs Young. I very much hope you enjoy looking through it! We hope to post regular updates - keep everyone informed of coming events and adding new pictures to the gallery pages.
