“IT has been a delight to welcome everyone back to school this week. For those few pupils unable to join us so far, due to travel restrictions or isolation requirements, we look forward to you arriving in the coming days.

“There has been a real sense of joy and enthusiasm both in class and during activities. Drama auditions, music practices and sports training have all begun in earnest. The revitalised tennis courts and the new artificial pitch (which is nearly ready) are a welcome improvement to the sports facilities.

“I would particularly like to draw your attention to the Wellbeing Hub which is being launched this week. It is a resource for pupils, parents and teachers, each with their own area. Ben Pennington has written a separate letter with further details; I would encourage you to see it as a further source of professional advice on issues relating to the challenges facing teenagers. Much of the content is presented in a series of short videos. https://www.teentips.co.uk/club/. I hope you will find it useful.

“All the very best.”
