I am delighted to write to you after a term in post and say what a wonderful 15 weeks we have had. My optimism about starting here has been well and truly justified. I am very grateful to all the staff for their hard work and unfailing enthusiasm on behalf of our students. I would also like to thank the students of every year group for the contribution they have made to the happy spirit and purposeful air that is evident to everyone who visits the school.
Our successes come down to a few very tangible things. Our students know why they are here and pursue their learning with enthusiasm and in good cheer. Our staff are unfailingly committed to the progress and wellbeing of all our students. The strong community spirit is evident in all things and knowing Christ is with us on our journey informs our sense of optimism and gives us a mandate to conduct ourselves with love and compassion and to look outwards at the more vulnerable and needy of society.
Since beginning at the school my own personal highlight has been meeting everyone connected to this community. The students have continued to be cheerful and curious as they were when I first met them and I continue to enjoy becoming more acquainted with all our parents and carers, governors, staff and all friends of the school.
I would also like to extend a welcome to our school to anyone visiting our website in order that you can be shown around the school and see the school in action.
“May the Lord bless you and protect you. May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.” (Numbers 6: 24-25)
