Further to my letter of 2 April 2019, on the advice of the Police in light of recent events, the last day of term, Friday 5 April 2019 will NOT be a non-uniform day. Students should attend school in full school uniform, they will, of course, not be expected to pay the £1 contribution to charity.
The Computer Science department is planning a trip to Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes for Year 8 students to explore, experience and enjoy the once top-secret world of iconic Codebreaking Huts. We will be travelling by coach and meeting in the Lower School playground at 8.15am, set to return to School at around 4.00pm.
Pupils will be dismissed from 10.45am on Friday 5 April 2019. Please note this will be a non-uniform day and students will be expected to make a contribution of at least £1, which will be donated to charity.
Unfortunately, I have to inform you of an unpleasant incident that took place today, at approximately 12.15pm on Holly Walk. Two youths arrived in balaclavas and assaulted one of our Sixth Form students. I am uncertain of the motive as nothing was stolen, but the student did receive injuries to his face. The Police were promptly informed and arrived quickly and police cars and constables were in high presence in Enfield Town centre, looking for the culprits.
At 8.35am this morning a Year 10 student, who was in McDonald’s, was surrounded by four youths and after a threat of violence had his coat stolen. I have watched the CCTV footage and am shocked and angry at how this happened whilst McDonald’s staff and members of the public walked by. I am not blaming the staff or the public, but am angry at how brazen these youths are and how fearless they seem.
