24 June 2020 Update

Dear Parents, Carers and Students


Given how much has so rapidly changed out of all recognition over the last three months, it’s wonderful to now look forward to a run of ‘normal’ events that hold a special place in the school calendar - albeit in an adapted format!


This week sees the start of virtual Sports Days, our Sports Awards presentations - the seventeenth in succession - and details will be published shortly of extended induction activities for new Year 12 and the new Year 7, as well as UCAS and Careers Week for current Sixth Formers. I’m also aware that Mrs Mawazini is ‘virtually choreographing’ the annual Quantum Leap Dance celebration - again the seventeenth edition of this wonderful event! Nothing gets in the way of the best Park House traditions!


For Years 7, 8 and 9, week commencing 29 June will be another consolidation week. Staff have been asked not to introduce new concepts or key areas of learning but instead, to set activities which consolidate or reinforce previous learning.


We are approaching deadlines for Personal Best, so if you do have any further inspirational stories about what you have been doing over the lockdown period please do send them in to us as soon as possible - and ideally no later than next Monday, 29 June. Thank you!


Very best wishes

Derek Peaple
