As Spring Term ends..

A key focus for the term has been the completion of the process to join the Multi-Academy Trust (MAT).

I think it is fair to say that there have been challenges along the way with the legal processes that needed to be completed.  However I am delighted to say that everything has now been done and we officially joined on 1st April 2018.
 
This is a really exciting opportunity for the school. The Girls’ Learning Trust is the only Multi-Academy Trust in the country that brings together girls’ schools, and we will be aiming to work with the other schools in the Trust to develop practice that will bring real benefits to all our students.  Full details are available on the school web site under the school tab.
 
Work has continued as normal with a vast array of activities and hard work in lessons.  With a real focus on making sure Years 13 and 11 are fully prepared for their exams, intensive work and revision sessions have been held for these students and on 22nd March there was a highly successful Revision Challenge Evening held for Year 11 students.  There is also a full revision programme for Year 11 being held during the Easter holidays.
 
This term has also been the first of our new rewards system and we are looking forward to presenting students with their rewards for their achievements after Easter.
 
As is often the case at the end of a term we sadly say goodbye to staff.
 
Firstly, Mr Keane, our Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator will be leaving us and moving to another local school.  Mr Keane has been a totally committed and loyal member of staff during the 8 years he has been with us at CHSG.  He has worked very closely with a high number of students, ensuring their additional needs are met.  Mr Keane has also contributed to the wider life of the school by introducing football for the girls, running several teams each academic year.
 
We thank Mr Keane for the significant contribution he has made to the school and wish him all the very best in his new post.
 
We also say goodbye to Ms Fifield, teacher of Science.  We thank Ms Fifield for her work during the past 2 years and wish her well in the future.  Mr Taheri, who has been with us for two terms on a temporary contract is also leaving.  We thank him too for all his hard work.
 
We have said a temporary goodbye to Mrs Norman (teacher of Geography) and Mrs Jones (teacher of Media and English) who are on maternity leave.
 
We return on Monday 16th April at the normal registration time of 8.35am.  This is a change from the time originally published; the change being made to make up some of the time lost due to the forced closures for snow.
