I’d like to start by welcoming you all back to College after the half-term break. I hope that you all had a good half-term and are ready for the last seven weeks of this year. There is a lot to look forward to this half-term – we have awards evenings, sport and performance evening, art design and technology exhibition and Oklahoma to look forward to. In addition to this, we also have a new-look activities week at the start of July, which will start with a whole-college sponsored walk to raise money for a fantastic local charity. I will give more information and details about this in assemblies over the next two weeks. In July, we will also take a College photograph with all students in it, which will show our whole community together.
At the start of a half-term, it is important that we remember our aims and the College’s values, which you chose. Our aim is to develop everyone academically, personally and socially. This means that we want you to leave us as highly skilled and highly qualified young people ready to follow your aspirations. This only happens with hardwork and over the next seven weeks, you must make sure you are pushing yourself in every lesson, every day.
What we do in College is important, but equally important is how we treat each other. Our values of respect, happiness and achievement are important to us. We must all respect one another, support one another and celebrate successes when we achieve, whether that is in school, during enrichment or while participating in one of our sports teams. You must commit to doing your very best, every day. Only then will you succeed.
Some sporting results from before half-term:
Year 9 + 10 cricket team lost by 6 runs to Chichester High School – Man of the Match was Ed Minto
