Christmas Concert Raffle

During our Christmas Concert we hold a raffle with all proceeds donated to charities both local and national. Last year we raised well over £400 which was donated to Bankfoot Services and this year we would like to try and beat that. I am therefore looking for donations of prizes. If you would like to contribute something please contact me at the school or email me at Thanks in advance for your support in this matter.

Kind regards,

Chris Bishop

Principal Teacher of Music

eD of E – completing your award.

All pupils who were issued with the new eD of E package (last years’ Bronze and a few of the Silver and Gold participants) will be pleased to know your mentors have now been trained in how to help you complete your award, get it ‘signed off’ and finally get your award!

We are proposing to run a series of informal drop-in help sessions over the next few weeks.

The first of these will be lunchtimes in Mr Kiernan’s lab. Don’t panic if you can’t manage at these times as others will be arranged for after the October break and details posted on the daily notices and on the D of E noticeboard outside Mr Kiernan’s lab.

To kick us off the first block will be next week (Mon 11th, Tues 12th  and Thurs 14th) in Mr Kiernan’s lab at lunchtime. It would help if you could bring your eD of E package/box.
