- The return to school has been accompanied very warm weather and the wintry conditions from a few weeks ago seem a distant memory. With the public examinations due to start in just three weeks we wish all examination year groups the very best. We will do all we can to support them. Many of them were in over Easter with their teachers for revision and are now into the final weeks of preparation.
- Internal examinations for other year groups also begin soon. In response to parent feedback we are redesigning the curriculum information we make available on our website for KS3. We aim to provide more detail on topics studied in each subject and resources that can be used to study and revise. We will let you know when the changes are ready.
- We had a fabulous start to the week when our Year 7 girls football team won the Bromley Cup 6-0. This was the first time this event has been held for this age group and we are very proud of them.
- The final total raised by our pupils for Sport Relief was over £3700. This is a big increase on previous years. Congratulations to all who took part.
- Mrs Philbrick (PE) would love to hear of any pupils who are involved in sport of any kind outside of school. Our annual Sports Awards ceremony takes place at the end of term and we would not want to miss anyone out who deserves to be recognised.
- The Higher Education information evening for Year 12 students and their parents/carers will take place at 6.30pm on Thursday, 26th April in the Main School Hall.
- The Murder Mystery Evening will be taking place on Thursday, 10th May – this is a joint event organised by the Drama Department and the PSA. Come along, watch the play performed by some of our Key Stage 3 pupils and try and guess “whodunnit”. Tickets are available now and include a two course meal. Further details can be found on the PSA website http://www.darrickwoodpsa.co.uk/
- Please remember that pupils can no longer pay for food at school by topping up their online accounts using coins. We would be grateful if parents could ensure that their Parent Pay account is in credit. The system can also be set up to send an alerts when the account reaches a particular limit.
