I hope you and your family are well. As we approach the end of this half term, I would like to update you on what we have achieved at Sharples despite the challenges we are still facing due to the continued impact of Covid 19.
Over this half-term, all students have completed assessments across a number of curriculum areas. I have been really impressed by the mature way in which our students have prepared for their assessments and their determination to do their best. In particular, I want to pay tribute to our Year 11 students who, despite the many challenges they have faced throughout their final year at Sharples, have demonstrated both positivity and resilience when completing their GCSE evidence assessments.
This week we will be rewarding those students who have gained the greatest number of ACE (Academic, Community and Excellence) points this half term. We are already planning our end of year awards events for next half term, and I am looking forward to celebrating the endeavours of our students through our annual Academic Achievement Assemblies. As always, I would encourage you to read our weekly newsletter and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date with our school events and successes.
On a final note, we have high standards in relation to appearance at Sharples that we expect all students to adhere to. The full Uniform Policy and details of our expectations linked to shoes, jewellery, hair and make-up can be accessed on the school website https://www.sharplesschool.co.uk/policies/.
We finish school for the half term break at 3.05pm on Friday, 28 May and I hope that all of our students have a safe, enjoyable and restful break. We look forward to welcoming our students back, to school, on Monday, 7 June with a prompt start to registration at 8.45am.
Thank you for your continued support of our school, it is greatly appreciated.
Take care and stay safe.
Ms A Webster
