Start of Term ArrangementsPosted on: 28/08/2022
We hope that everyone is enjoying the lovely summer break. A reminder that the new academic year commences on Monday 5th September 2022. However, as standard, we have allocated this day and Tuesday 6th September as INSET days. Therefore, the term will commence for all students on Wednesday 7th September.
We will be holding a number of parent/carer information evenings at the start of the year to support families. These will all commence at 7.00pm and are held in the main hall. I should be grateful if you could make yourself available for the following
- Monday 12th September Year 11 Information Evening;
- Thursday 15th September Year 10 Information Evening;
- Monday 19th September Year 13 Information Evening;
- Thursday 22nd September Year 12 Information Evening;
- Monday 26th September Year 8/9 Information Evening; and
- Thursday 29th September Year 7 Information Evening.
Prior to the start of term, we ask that families take time to read the uniform expectation guide, which is available on our uniform section of the website. We want our students to be proud of their school, and a uniform is one way in which they can do this. However, we do not wish uniform to be a barrier for learning and, to this end, we have refreshed stocks of blazers; skirts; ties; trousers and shoes (of all sizes) in readiness for
September, should a student turn up without full/correct school uniform.
Please be aware there are grants available for families towards the cost of uniform. Information about the grant is available here. The application for the grant is available via your designated local authority, where you reside (click on link to apply via Cardiff; RCT; Vale of Glamorgan; Newport; Bridgend).
We look forward to another successful year working alonside you.
