Head’s Blog – First Newsletter of 2023

Friday 20 January 2023 | By Megan Connor

A warm welcome to parents and pupils reading our first newsletter of 2023 and also to those catching up with our news, events and goings on during their visit to our final Open Day of the academic year. I am delighted you have taken the  time to come along and learn more about what our school has to offer.

Firstly, I would like to say a huge well done to our Year 11 and Sixth Form students who sat their mock examinations this past fortnight. I hope that you get the results you deserve and that this experience will help you prepare for your examinations in the summer. 

It was great to see our 2023 Year 7 cohort at our Transition Day last week. This is the second event in our transition programme to ensure a seamless and worry free transition to Senior School. We hope you had a wonderful day, Year 6!

School Events

Our spring co-curricular activities are back with sporting fixtures, Into the Woods rehearsals, Forest School sessions, Tea-Time concerts and talks and everything else that makes THS as action-packed and enriching a school as ever. We are looking forward to many fantastic events in the spring term. 

On Tuesday 31 January we are hosting our annual THS Careers Convention. This is a superb event which allows students to meet experts in their fields on a one-to-one basis, discover the truths of possible future careers and gather valuable information for future study and career pathways.

The Friends of THS are hosting a Race Night on Friday 10 February. Our spring term PTA events are deliberately designed to have a strong social aspect, with the emphasis on parents and families coming together to enjoy a relaxing, fun evening. We hope you are able to join us for what promises to be a fun filled evening. 

Carrying on with the social events, we are delighted to be able to invite you to our Spring Masquerade Ball on Friday 31 March at Wynyard Hall. Everyone is welcome; members of our school community or wider family and friends. We look forward to sharing more information about this event very shortly.
