This will no doubt be the strangest of Summer Terms. These are unprecedented times, and we continue to look at practical and creative ways to teach remote lessons, and to ensure the engagement, happiness and well-being of our school community.
The corridors are indeed quiet – devoid of the usual hustle and bustle, good cheer, smiles and indeed the hard work and commitment that define who we are. We know that things may feel a little out of sorts, but we are at the end of the phone and available via email should any of you need support, guidance or perhaps a quick catch up.
As Jamie Bough, our Head of History, pointed out, we find ourselves in a historical time, where what we do will be remembered and discussed for years to come. To try to capture an essence of this time, she has created the Living History Project, and invites pupils to contribute with artwork, photographs, essays, opinion pieces, and even images of items you would place inside a time capsule. This work will then be exhibited, alongside our art department when we return to some kind of normality, demonstrating the ways our lives have been impacted. Rich content for our archives no doubt!
Do watch our first online assembly of this term if you didn't manage to catch it live. Listening to the usual voices of Mr Biggs and Father Mark is warmly reassuring.
And then there's a bit of fun to brighten your day with our staff and pupil Welcome Back ABC video.
Stay safe and stay well, and we look forward to the time when we can all come together again.
