Headteacher's Blog

Business students have been engaging in some very enterprising schemes this week as part of their studies and designed to raise money for charity. From raffles, car washes, and pamper packs through to marketing promotion for local business, as Scott’s example on the School Twitter highlights. It is always so positive to see the students in action in these creative ways and well done to all involved.

Another inspiring example comes from Mrs Cross, our Assistant Head of English, who this Sunday is running in the London Marathon in support of the Core UK charity. We are all very proud of Mrs Cross who has featured in this very positive article on QLocal. Good luck on Sunday Mrs Cross!

Some of our talented students who belong to the Kelly Shirley School of Dance featured on Britain's Got More Talent last Saturday. The troupe features Daisy, Megan, Emily, Millie, Erin and Jess, as well as some past pupils. If you missed it you can enjoy their performance here:

Sporting success this week has included our Y9 Rugby team finishing runners-up in the Lancashire Rugby finals, narrowly losing out in the final at St. Helen’s Rugby Club by only two points. This is a team with the potential to go from strength-to-strength and we are all very proud of the players, who represented the school so well.

I was inspired this week by work on the importance of kindness in school and putting into action the importance of showing kindness in our daily interactions. It is important in a busy school environment to not lose sight of the important values that create a community. We are proud of being a school where kindness matters and in this spirit I conclude the Blog with the words of William Ward: “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.”

Best wishes

Mr Kerridge.
