Head Master's Notes

Dear Parents and Students,
Our Spring Break followed by External Examinations
The school year is flying by and we are already at the Spring break. The period that follows, until the end of the year, is very intense and busy, particularly for our older students who will be involved in external examinations that will be important for their futures. We trust they will use of the break for intense revision, as some examinations start the week after our return to School. We wish them every success and are looking forward to some top grades.

Spring Concert
I am sure that those of you who attended the annual Spring Concert would want to join, with me, in congratulating all the participants involved. It was an evening of excellence where students from across the secondary school shared their musical talents through voice, individual instruments and in bands. A huge thank you and well done to the Music Department teachers – Mr Glenn Horsfall, Mrs Rosie Dixon and the Music subject leader, Mrs Nicki Elcome, who directed the concert.

Car Park Courtesy
Although this is a subject I have written about before, it was once again on the PTA agenda at their last meeting. Clearly a large number of parents are still very upset and offended by the poor behaviour of parents/chauffeurs in the car park.

There are still cars parked on the roundabout (unless I stand there) and cars parked across spaces for three cars, stopping anyone using the other two spaces in the new car park (which would also seem to be too far to walk for some parents!)

If you park behind the staff cars – YOU CAN NOT LEAVE YOUR CAR. Staff make their appointments outside of school time and may need to leave immediately after school.

Finally, some of our parents need to check out the rules for handicap spaces in France.

Please – as I’ve said before – show your children a good example. Thank you for your consideration for the school community as a whole.

The Summer Term
We return to school, after the break, on Monday 24th April at the normal start time. During the term, there are several short holidays – Monday 1st May, Monday 8th May, Thursday & Friday 25th and 26th May and Monday 5th June. Please note, there may be external examinations on these dates.

For the rest of the time, children should be in School. The end of the school year is on Friday 30th June at 12h00 with our Graduation and Farewell Ceremony at 18h30. As there are nine weeks of vacation in the summer, please do not take your children out of School early at the end of June.

Have an excellent Spring break.

Kindest regards,

Brian G. Hickmore
Headmaster
