Chamber Choir filmed in an empty All Saints church for our Virtual Carol Service.

It was lovely to see your children arrive at school this morning in their Christmas Jumpers, ready for the celebrations which the final day of the Michaelmas Term brings. Prizes have been awarded, achievements have been celebrated in Final Assembly, classroom decorations have been judged with 3G winning a closely contested competition, Years 7 and 8 have wished their Reception and Year 1 buddies a happy Christmas via Zoom, and we are all looking forward to Christmas lunch.

This final Newsletter of the year includes links to several items on our YouTube channel: the Jerusalema Dance Challenge, the two Nativity plays, and the staff's treatment of Mariah Carey's seasonal favourite. I am pleased that we have been able to share so much video content with you this term, at a time when we cannot invite you to school to take part in events with us. Our Carol Service from All Saints will be shared with you later this afternoon. Please do take some time to sit down and watch it with your family; I hope next year’s service will take place in more conventional circumstances.

It has been a very different term. However, I think we can all be grateful for the progress made by pupils in the classroom and for the joy that has been so evident in so much the children have done and achieved. Your children have been incredible in the very positive approach they have brought to all that the school has done and so too have you, their parents. I wish you all comfort, love, and joy as we approach the festive season and your children a Christmas full of wonder.
