Parent Bulletin 24.11.17

This week

  • Read All About It! The Darrick Wood School production of “Bugsy Malone” took place on Wednesday and Thursday this week and our thanks go to everyone who contributed to making this show such a success. The students involved onstage, backstage and in the band did a fantastic job under the direction of a dedicated and committed team of staff. We are looking forward to next year’s production already!
  • Our new structure to house temporary changing for PE and Sports Centre is starting to take shape towards the rear of the School. It is anticipated this will be completed over the next week. We have now had a week for students to get used to a different queuing system for the Dining Hall. We are grateful to our students for their patience and excellent conduct during this disruption.


  • Please be aware that Christmas lunch will be available for students to purchase in the Dining Hall on Tuesday, 12th December and Wednesday, 13th December.
  • Letters relating to the move from sQuid to ParentPay have been distributed to Form Tutors today. Please let us know next week if you have not received a letter or if you need any further information. It is important that all parents set up the ParentPay accounts so that they are in credit by Friday, 1st December 2017.
