Hello everyone,

The first week of the final half term of the year has simply flown by.  GCSEs and A Levels are racing by.  Thank you for all your support - it is greatly appreciated.

There is much to celebrate at Ormskirk School – One of our year 7s has been selected for the Lancashire U13 county cricket squad this year - a wonderful achievement. The Lancashire girls system is a big feeder into the Lancashire Thunder super league team and even England squads.

I was invited to the Scouts AGM on Wednesday night at the Civic Centre in Ormskirk and after the official business I had many conversations regarding the number of our young people at Ormskirk School who are involved in this great organisation – the stories I heard were truly inspirational – it was truly a lovely evening. 

We have received a Lancashire Rugby Award at an awards evening at Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Club in Preston recognising Ormskirk School as an emerging talent in this area.

My thoughts are already racing towards September and things we need to do to ensure our Year 10s achieve great things by this time next year. 

Our new Deputy Head, Mrs Coulson, will be joining us for the rest of the summer half term on a part time basis – she will be in school every Monday and Friday from Monday 10th June to help drive our improvement strategies.    

We continue to have the highest expectations in terms of our young people at Ormskirk School in every area – uniform, equipment, behaviour (in and out of the classroom), attitudes, the amount and presentation of work they do in class, homework, etc.  Please continue to reinforce these standards from home in partnership with the school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Witter
