Careers Networking Evening - Thursday 7 March

On Thursday 7 March from 6.30pm to 8pm we are holding our annual Careers Networking Evening for our Year 10 - 13 students in the Senior School. The aim of the evening is for our students to meet parents and others linked to the school who have (or who have had) a professional role and discuss with them their careers either specifically or in general, how they achieved this career and to gain key advice for the next few years. This way they will gain further advice and guidance on a wide variety of careers and pathways they may experience in the future. They will also further understand the need to be aspirational, to take risks but also be flexible, whilst at the same time developing the skill of networking and building their confidence. This year we have over 30 parents and visitors joining us from careers varying from Architecture, Dentistry, the media, Property Development, Law and Finance.

The Careers Networking Evening supports the in-school PSHEE sessions where Careers is delivered, the use of online resources that help guide our students, and works towards the work experience opportunity that the students have in Years 11 and 12. All parents are therefore asked to ensure that their son/daughter attends this important and incredibly useful event.

Recent Viral Social Media Story

Following recent media stories regarding a viral story being shared on social media, we feel it was a good opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of online safety with our parents.  We have sought advice and would like to share the following information with parents and carers.  Please read the attached letter from the school's Designated Safeguarding Lead, Esther Wright.

Performing Arts Timetables

The Performing Arts Timetables are available here.  Please check regularly as times and occasionally days are subject to change.  Timetables are also displayed on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre and outside the Prep School Music classroom.  The peripatetic staff do their best to look for clashes with trips, fixtures and talks, but if any of your child's lessons are scheduled for the same time as events of this nature, please inform the relevant peripatetic teacher so that lessons can be rearranged in good time.

Music Lesson Information

Mr Valentine will not be in school next week (4-8 March). This means he will not be teaching his private pupils or running his clubs.  New pupils will be included on an updated timetable so please keep an eye on notice boards and next week's Bulletin.

Phone System

Please be advised that we have had a new phone system installed over half term and whilst it is working well it is not yet working without a few minor teething problems. Please bear with us while we work on these. Also, when you call in there will no longer be any music playing whilst you are put on hold and waiting to be transferred.
