Principal’s Message

I hope that parents and the wider community are enjoying the change in our weekly newsletter. Although a seemingly small change, we are attempting to keep you even more up-to-date on the weekly events. Indeed, I hope you enjoy reading about this week’s events, including the report on last weekend written by one of our students on the Wales and West Universities Visit. Once again, our students were superb ambassadors for the College and invaluable links have been forged with the universities; Christ the King College’s reputation and the calibre of its students is becoming increasingly well- known and well established. Congratulations are also due to the Young Enterprise Team who, once again, enjoyed success in this week’s competition. As I have requested before, please email any information about student successes to us in preparation for inclusion in the weekly Parent Bulletin so, as a community, we can continue to share and enjoy all that goes on.
Our more senior students are, of course, working hard towards their external examinations. We are blessed with teachers who give of their time willingly beyond the normal timetable and so please encourage your children to attend the plethora of revision classes and intervention sessions that are being delivered. If you are in any doubt about the times, venues and range of sessions, please do not hesitate to contact us. It is also worth remembering that, as we come to the end of the journey for many students in our sixth form, new journeys lie ahead for our year 11 students who are preparing for life in the sixth form and also our new students currently in year 6 classes in primary schools who are preparing for their SATs.
I am sure you will join me in thought and prayer for these students and families in particular as we approach these major changes and times of potential stress, though as always the support, encouragement and wrap around care that we pride ourselves on at Christ the King will be in place to ensure that the process is as seamless as can possibly be achieved
