Parent/Guardian Newsletter

Dear Parents and Carers,

Normally at this time of year we would be together in the Church all celebrating the achievements of the students. However this year has been different and instead I am sending this message to you all.

As I look back over this year it is truly amazing to me to think back over the achievements of the students. So many of them were able to continue accessing education in the most difficult of circumstances.

In this summer term we have had so many events and activities for the students. There was Pride Week, WellBeing week and National Sports Week. An initiative launched by Deputy Chris Delahaye was to invite the National Citizenship Service into the Post 16 Provision at Wood End. This is a great success and one we will continue with next year. I have to tell you one of the things the visitors from the NCS commented on was our staff-the enthusiasm they showed and the commitment to the students was plain for them to see. I would like to thank them all for the way they have kept going through circumstances we never could have imagined.

Of course as a school we thank you, the parents and carers of these amazing children. I know many of you have faced your own challenges this year and I hope the school has been able to offer what support it can.

A major focus for next year will be on ensuring the best outcomes for the students post pandemic. If we can work together on this I know we can achieve the success we all want for our young people.

I would like to take a moment to say goodbye to the parents and carers who are leaving us this year. Spring Hill High School is a family and like any family there are ups and downs but we always come back together again. To the families and young people who leave us today, all of us in the school wish you well and remind you that we are here if you need us. Many of our students, for example, are thinking of coming back for apprenticeships. Even if it is because you need someone to talk to or if you need some advice-we will be here. We are more than just a school. We are a community. We all want to hear about your achievements and support you where we can.

Here is hoping that we will be all together at our Christmas celebration.

Thank you again,

Gary Edmunds
Head Teacher
