|There will be a trip on the above dates for Year 8 pupils enabling them to study river features and coastal defences which are part of the Geography syllabus for this year group.
Departure will be from the Lower School at 9.00am by coach and return to the Lower School around 5.30pm. Pupils should bring a packed lunch. School uniform need not be worn but please wear suitable clothing for potentially adverse weather conditions and (i) a 1½ hour walk along the River Stour from Dedham to Flatford Mill (the path may be muddy so a second pair of old trainers would be useful) (ii) a 1 hour walk along the seafront at Clacton to see the coastal defences. If time allows, there will be an opportunity for pupils to spend some time on the pier at Clacton.

Re: Sixth Form Transition Day 2017
It was great to see so many students at the transition day on Monday 3 July. The transition day was very successful and students
engaged effectively with the programme. The Summer Tasks for every subject have also been uploaded to the school website
and students need to complete these in time for their first lesson.
The Sixth Form handbook is currently being updated and will be shared on the school website as well as with students when they
start in September.
|Dear Parent/CarerI write to inform you that pupils will be dismissed from 11.00am on the last day of term, Wednesday 19 July 2017. It has been agreed that this day will be a non-uniform day with pupils paying at least a £1.00 donation for this privilege. The School Council met recently and voted that this year the money raised will be split between the Grenfell Tower Disaster Fund and our own Hardship Fund, which helps towards the running of the Breakfast Club amongst other worthy causes in school.|
|This half term, as part of our Sex and Relationships programme we will be covering a range of topics during Citizenship lessons. We feel this should include frank and open discussion on issues from which some parents may wish their children to be exempt on religious grounds. Equally, some parents may wish to take the responsibility for this area of their children’s education.|
