I hope that you have all had a wonderful Easter break. We are pleased to be welcoming our students back for the final term of this academic year. This is an important term, especially for our Year 11 and Year 13 students, as they work towards their final GCSE and A Level exams. We will continue to do all that we can to support them to reach their full potential. Please do all that you can to ensure that they attend school every day and that they arrive on time.

Please also support them in their preparations by talking to them about the importance of keeping active, eating healthily, ensuring that they get enough sleep and that they find the correct balance of studying and relaxation. We saw through their mock exams that a number of students are growing increasingly anxious about the upcoming exams. It is important that they hear the same messages from us all that we only want them to be doing their best, we cannot ask them to do more than that. I believe that as long as they work well with their teachers and put the effort in by revising independently then they will achieve the success that they deserve.

We express our deepest sympathies for the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Her dedication to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and to her other realms and territories is unparalleld and we thank her for her service.

We will observe the mourning period whilst continuing to support our pupils, families and staff.

We will be closed for the national holiday on Monday 19 September for Her Majesty’s funeral.

The Christ the King Community showing that they care by supporting the SVP Summer Sleep Out

The SVP Summer Sleepout allows children and young people to experience what it is like to sleep outside for a night with only a sleeping bag, tent or cardboard box for comfort. This summer, we are encouraging students and their families to organise their own Sleep Out event in aid of the St Vincent de Paul Society  who work with those who are experiencing homelessness. This can be outdoors as a family, or alternatively with a couple of friends in a back garden.  We would appreciate any support with the SVP Summer Sleep Out. All funds raised will help to change the lives and support the most vulnerable in our communities. You can find more information about the work of the SVP here:  https://www.svp.org.uk/involve-young-people

As a school, we continually strive to not only encourage our students to achieve their very best, but also to reward their hard work and achievements. I am delighted to inform you that you and your family are cordially invited to our Celebration of Success Evening on Wednesday 20th July at the Good Shepherd Church, during which, your son/ daughter will be one of the students selected to receive an award.

Students in Years 7 to 10 will be expected to wear full school uniform, whilst those in Years 11, 12 and 13 will be expected to dress smartly. The proceedings will last for approximately 90 minutes.

We expect that you and your family will be delighted to see them rewarded in this way and therefore, to help us to plan the evening, please return the completed reply slip to Students Services by Monday 11th July 2022.  This can be found below

We look forward to seeing you on the 20th of July at 7:00pm.
