Thank you for the ongoing support you have given the school this term. We work closely with parents and the local community to secure the highest levels of success for our pupils and students. As a school we have a lot to celebrate: excellent GCSE and A level results; fantastic sporting successes; performances of We Will Rock You, which were amazing; and a tremendous Estyn report which validates everything we do.
We are exceptionally proud of all learners, and staff, and these amazing achievements reinforce our belief that what we are doing day to day is the right thing and that the high standards we hold continue to have an impact.
As a reward for everyone’s hard work, I am pleased to announce the school will be closing early at 12.20pm on Friday 22nd December. This will allow pupils and their families a little extra time together to prepare for Christmas.
However, I am keen to stress that I do not expect to see a dip in attendance just because it is a shortened day. Pupils are expected to attend school and lessons as normal. The school has made all the necessary arrangements for school buses / taxis to be at school early to transport pupils home.
The last day of term will be a non-uniform day for pupils. Pupils wearing their own clothes are encouraged to make a £1 donation which will be shared between Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and Alder Hey Cinema; please follow this link to look at the excellent work at Alder Hey - www.alderhey.nhs.uk/movie-magic-coming-to-children-and-young-people-at-alder-hey
School re-opens for new term:
The school re-opens for students on Tuesday 9th January. Monday 8th January is a staff training day.
I understand that many of you may currently be facing much bigger challenges than education, which is why we will look to provide wider support to you and your family wherever possible. If you do require additional support, please do not hesitate in contacting the school.
I wish nothing more than for you to have a restful and enjoyable Christmas with your loved ones.
