Dear Parents and Carers,

This week we hosted a transition meeting with colleagues from our local feeder primary schools. We invited Headteachers and Year 6 teachers to come and speak with us about the successful aspects of our primary to secondary transition processes, along with the things they feel we could do better. We had a great turn out and we received some very useful feedback. Alongside the parent voice surveys we completed this year with new Year 7 parents, we now have a strong evidence base to further enhance the transition experiences of future UCC students.

As the weather gets colder more and more students are choosing to wear the UCC school jumper under their blazers to keep warm. The official UCC school jumpers are the only acceptable jumpers to wear underneath blazers and the link for where to purchase these from is here.

On Thursday next week we welcome back our Year 11 cohort from 2016-17 for their presentation evening and to collect their GCSE certificates. We invite local dignitaries and friends of UCC and this year we are really looking forward to welcoming back our former Principal Mrs Turner, who is our guest of honour. I would like to thank our music students who are giving up their time to perform at this event; I am very much looking forward to hearing you play! 

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Mr Solly.
