Leadership Team Blog – Friday 23rd May

Head of School, Matthew Gibson

I wrote in my last blog post two weeks ago that I had been struck by the efforts that students at Castle Manor had taken to support those less fortunate than themselves through their charity work. With the results now in after the collection of all the sponsor money and so on, it is terrific to acknowledge a record breaking effort of £1400 raised. My thanks to all the students and staff, particularly Ms Weston for her leadership in this area.

The theme of Castle Manor students giving to others was continued with two very different events that I was privileged to be at this week. On Monday, the Haverhill Rotary club honoured three Castle Manor students with their annual Book Awards for their service to others in the school community. On Thursday, our house band “Nice Manors” played a fantastic concert for the Haverhill Gateway Club – for some of the students who were playing it was their last concert after several years of excellent performances – I know Mrs Sanderson is very grateful to them for all their efforts and sad to see them go.

Finally this week I want to note the level of effort given by all the students and staff in preparing for the GCSE and A level exams that have continued this week – I know there are classes going on over half term. We are all very hopeful that the results they achieve truly reflect their efforts.

Have a good half term break.
