As the forecast is for high temperatures to continue until the weekend, we will be extending the modifications to uniform until the end of this week. We will inform you in due course about arrangements for next week.
Students may leave blazers at home if they wish. Girls do not need to wear tights but should wear either black uniform trousers, or wear black or white ankle socks with their skirts as an alternative.
On Tuesday 20th June 2017 the school will close at 1.20pm in preparation for the Yr11 Leavers’ Assembly and Presentation Evening.
For those students who normally travel by contract buses, arrangements have been made for buses to arrive at school at 1.20pm. You may, if you wish, make your own arrangements to collect your child at 1.20pm.
The Year 8 Photography workshop is under way and students are learning the basics of working with digital cameras. They have been given a list of objects to find and photograph – watch this space for the results!
We would like to draw to your attention the arrangements in school related to extremely hot weather.
Given the temperamental nature of weather forecasts in this country, we monitor closely the Met Office weather forecasts and in extreme conditions uniform rules will be modified. If this is to be the case then we will always aim to notify parents in good time via the school facebook page and the William Edwards App.
On a day to day basis we always adopt a practical, common-sense approach and we will always encourage students to remove blazers and drink plenty of water during warmer weather. The school policy remains that girls always have the option to wear school regulation trousers should they wish to and this is something that many girls choose to do during the summer months.
We will, of course, be back in touch to notify you if the uniform rules are to be modified for a period of time.
In Year 8 History, students are studying World War 1. As part of the course we chose to get the experts in to bring to life the training regime of soldiers from World War 1 to the present day. Our two British Army experts brought in specialist army equipment and carried out teamwork and fitness training exercises with Year 8 and put them through their paces. Students are now taking this work back into the classroom to write a comparison between the preparation for battle experienced by a soldier in World War 1 and in the present day army.
Mrs Perry and our British Army experts were very impressed with the keenness, behaviour and motivation of our students. Watch the video to see what they got up to…

On the 17th May two year 8 students and four year 9 pupils took part in the regional final of the annual “Have your Say” competition with the Association for Language Learning. Although we did not win this year, our pupils did us proud, as ever.
Pictured here are Mason Hunnisett, Chloe Smith, Sveva Bartolini and Stevie Critchell, who all took part in the German competition; and Sean Chrome and Shamid Ali who participated in the French competition. Well done to all!
