Dear Parents and Guardians,
Good day and I hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well. Welcome back to our parents from 2020 and an especially warm welcome to all the new parents who are joining the College for the first time this year.
We all find ourselves in a position that is not of our choosing but we are determined to make it a successful year. Again congratulations to our A level students who performed exceptionally well under the most trying circumstances. We await the IGCSE results with anticipation.
Last year I made the analogy between the evolving online teaching and learning experience and that of teachers having to design, build and then fly an aeroplane with very little forward planning. We now all know that distance learning presents incredible challenges and opportunities for teachers, parents and students alike. Everyone’s circumstances are different. More focussed independent learning from home is easier for some families and students than others.

While no one is sure yet how long this session of online teaching and learning will last, we do know that it will not last forever. Students take cues from adult behaviour and attitude, so it is important to communicate calm, confidence and hope that we will pull through this crisis together. Managing our own emotions will help our sons and daughters stay focussed on learning and looking forward for another school year.
