The end of the Autumn Term is approaching, and with it a chance to reflect on all we have achieved. When we welcomed all students back in September, we could not have foreseen how the entire community would come together to thrive in these unique circumstances.

There is a continued and very real sense of purpose and focus in, and out, of school. Our curriculum remains very broad, and we are delighted to be able to offer each subject in its entirety, enabling our students to experience a wealth of opportunities to think, create, write, and express themselves physically.

We are also restarting some of our extra-curricular activities, as permitted by the latest national guidance, so that students can explore areas beyond their curriculum and become involved with activities which boost their personal development.

This December we are supporting the Storehouse at West Suffolk Vineyard Church, and students and staff are writing to residents in care homes in support of the national #classroomstocarehomes campaign.

Advent is a season of expectation and preparation, when the Church prepares to celebrate the arrival (‘adventus’) of Christ in his incarnation. It is natural to look on an arrival with a sense of trepidation as well as expectation.  I hope, however, that advent brings you and your families peace and happiness.

With very best wishes to you all.
