Dear Parents & Guardians,

I am delighted that the first term has gone so well and that all our new staff and students have settled in so well.

I would be grateful if you could take the time over the holidays to ensure that your sons and daughters are fully equipped for school and have a sensible school coat to see them through the next few months. I know that adolescents and coats are not a natural partnership but it is preferable to sitting and steaming gently in lessons having arrived at college with a soaking wet blazer.

The French and Spanish exchanges have concluded with both sides enjoying the experience. It is quite daunting, inviting a stranger into your home and overcoming language barriers but many long lasting friendships results from these partnerships.

A final reminder that the opportunity to see the preview of Kayleigh's Love Story is on the first Monday back at 6-00pm in the Drama Studio. A preview is available on leics.police.uk/categories/kayleighs-love-story but you MUST let us know if you DO NOT want your child to see the film BEFORE the 2nd November. Silence will assume consent.

Please find attached a copy of important information in the event of bad weather/school closures.

I hope that you have a very enjoyable half term - College reopens on Monday, 31st October.

Regards,
Jan Turner
