Week 32

Friday 10th May 2024


Hi there!


I hope you had a relaxing Bank Holiday Monday at the start of this week.  For us, it was the annual HTC Golf Classic and another opportunity for those Golf enthusiasts, as well as raising funds for the College build. All is going well with the build and if the weather would remain dry, it would be a bonus!


The Exam season has well and truly started.  It’s quite a heavy timetable for Years 11 -14, and we’ll continue with last minute advice in how to prepare and do their very best. It is really imperative that students attend the specialist revision sessions prior to each exam and as expected, Student attendance is crucial at these sessions. The revision and independent study is over to them now and we know that with guidance from their teachers, support and encouragement from their parents/guardians, along with daily prayer to God, they will do extremely well. As always, we are providing a warm breakfast before each Exam for our students, to help provide them the energy and ‘brain fuel’ for their examinations and enable optimum performance.  Good Luck everyone!


We celebrated our Year 14 Leavers’ Mass last night, with students, parents / guardians and staffIt was a most uplifting and emotional occasion, the Liturgy and Readings of which were added to by the beautiful singing and playing from Year 14 BTEC Instrumental Students, Senior & Junior Choirs. We were delighted that Fr Slater could celebrate Mass for us and he spoke so eloquently to our students about their future, their talent and skills, and how they can make a difference in the world. A huge thanks to Mrs Quinn and Mrs Maynes for organising the Ceremony alongside Mrs Coleman and the RE Department for the Liturgy; Miss Mc Curry and Mr Mc Gartland for the lovely Music; Year 14 Form Teachers, Study Supervisor Miss Quinn and Subject Teachers who provided so much care and support to our young people during their time in school. It was lovely to welcome so many parents/guardians back to the College for light refreshments, distribution of Year Books and a final farewell. Thank you of course to our Canteen Staff who are always so helpful in assisting in any way possible.  




And a final piece of news to end on – receiving the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award in recognition of our work on Environmental Sustainability. Well done to Mr Litter and the Eco Team – that is simply brilliant!


Have a lovely Weekend everyone.
