Year 12/13 Performance Exams
On Wednesday evening I attended the Year 12 examination production entitled "The Museum of England" followed by the Year 13 examination production of "Urban Alice". Both performances, played to a ram packed audience (standing room only) were absolutely fantastic. The Year 12 production celebrating "English" culture through a mix of performing contemporary and traditional cultural pieces was witty, creative and a joy to watch. The performers were confident and truly outstanding – their talent very much evident. The Year 13 production was equally enthralling with superb acting and much the same great creativity around the theme of a modern day Alice.
My congratulations to all the performers and my thanks to Mrs Bird who, yet again, has produced some remarkable work from our students. Thanks too, to Mrs Kearney, Mr Jewell and Mr Andrews who have also worked extremely hard with Mrs Bird to produce such wonderful performances.

The exam season is now well under way and I would like to take this opportunity to thank families for the support they are giving to their children at this stressful time. The staff have worked tirelessly in preparing the students for their exams and I would also like to thank them for all they have done. Extra revision classes are still being held and members of staff are always willing to help with any last-minute concerns. I would like to wish all students the very best for their exams and the results in the summer.
As previously reported in the Link, from September we will have a vacancy on our Governing Body for a Parent Governor. Graham Powell’s term of office expires at the end of August and whilst Graham has been a superb member of the Governing Body he no longer has children at the school and therefore cannot re-stand. Any parents interested in becoming a Parent Governor should contact Mrs Hodgkinson in the first instance.

At Monday’s Governors’ meeting, Governors formally approved the appointment of Anoop Bamrah as a Community Governor. Anoop is a Director of Falcon Flying Group, based at Biggin Hill Airport and has been responsible for many developments in the company profile and also in marketing its services on a global basis. He has an entrepreneurial approach to business development and also considerable financial management experience. Anoop is clearly keen to become a committed Governor and support the continuing development of the School and I am looking forward to working with him.
End of Half Term
This half term seems to have flown by and has been extremely busy for staff and students alike. I hope all families have an enjoyable and restful break and return refreshed for the final weeks of this academic year.
