Prepare for tomorrow's world with an education worthy of today

Headmaster's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,

Already at the Final Fence!
We have just five weeks until the end of the School year and, as always, it is an extremely busy time. Please take care to note down all the events that involve you and your family to avoid missing something important and exciting!

External Examinations
Whilst a large majority of the (I)GCSEs are finished, the AS and A2 examinations continue throughout the month of June. We wish the students in Forms 12 and 13 continued success in these very important exams.

End of Year Secondary Examinations
For Forms 7 to 10, internal end of year examinations will begin on Monday 8th June and finish on Wednesday 17th June.

Form 12 - Return to School
At the end of their examinations, all students in Form 12 are due back in School from Monday 15th for a two-week period - mornings only. During this time, we will be looking at A2 options for next year (missing students' options will not be taken into account), personal statements and letters of motivation, CVs and applications to the UK and USA.

There will also be presentations from external agencies dealing with further education (for example Business Schools in the area and abroad) and career advice.

Senior Prom
We are also looking forward to the first ever Prom Night on the School premises with students from Form 12 and 13, on Friday 19th June - organised by the School and PTA. Hopefully, all 85 students in those classes will be able to attend.

Les Miserables
You will be able to read later in this edition information about our annual outdoor musical production - this year - Les Miserables. Make sure you have the 26th and 27th June in your agendas - you will regret missing this spectacular production!

French National Championships for Orienteering
Congratulations to the team of four Form 10 students who competed in the above championship just over a week ago. Celine Hoeie, Christine Sanglier, Artjoms Jesaibegjans and Hector Jones competed over two days to finish a very creditable 19th out of 41 academies throughout France. Joshua Rhode was also greatly appreciated as our (young official). Thank you all for your skill and commitment and being excellent ambassadors for Mougins School.

End of Year Prize Givings 2015
Please note (and as written in the Family Guide) the end of year celebrations of this academic year will be as follows:

Early Years and Reception

Forms 1, 2 and 3
Tuesday 30th June at 09h00
Forms 4, 5 and 6

The end of term is at 12h00 on Friday 3rd July. Form 13's Prize Giving and Graduation Ceremony is that evening at 18h30. All parents are invited to this important celebration, which also gives us the opportunity to finish the school year in style and say farewell to those families moving on and (have a great summer) to the rest.

Kindest regards,
Brian G. Hickmore
Headmaster
