Statement from the PrincipalYou may be aware that two of our sixth form students were involved in a road traffic accident at the weekend.  At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with them, the other young people involved and their families.  We will be providing support here in the college and if you feel your son or daughter is struggling, please contact us as soon as possible.  The Year 14 formal has been cancelled. 

Following recent events, we have taken the decision to cancel next week’s Year 14 formal.  We have taken this decision in the best interests of the school community and it goes without saying that our thoughts and prayers are with all of the girls involved and their families.

Following lengthy discussions, and considering different perspectives, we feel that it would be difficult for us to do justice to a celebratory event when members of our community have been involved in a serious road traffic accident.

We obviously share your disappointment as we value the opportunity to celebrate the end of Sixth Form but we will hopefully arrange an event later in the year when we can gather together to share our memories and experiences.

We will communicate later in the week regarding financial matters.

Thank you in advance for your support and understanding.

Yours sincerely

Matthew Pitts

Principal
