Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

Year 12 art students asked me if they could decorate the corridor to the English department.  If Art is defined as something which creates thought and discussion, this is great art!

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

 

It’s the end of a long and productive term at Lady Lumley’s School.  Whilst students in Years 10 to 13 worked to the very last minute, Key Stage 3 students and their staff marked the start of the Christmas break with music and songs in the assembly hall.  We were entertained by students in the senior and junior choirs and saw one of the first public performances of the junior orchestra.  One of the joys of this job is that I get to watch Year 7 students at the end of their first term at secondary school and less than 24 hours ago I was talking to last year’s Year 13, many of whom have just completed their first term at university.  In the Newsletter I mentioned the excellent examination results achieved by last year’s students, the best ever in the school’s history, and how these reflect not only on the students, their families and their teachers, but on the way the school has continued to improve.  Coincidentally, today I received the Christmas message to Headteachers from Pete Dwyer, Corporate Director of the Children and Young People’s Service.  Mr Dwyer spoke of the need for headteachers to lead in a world of seemingly continual change and how confident he is when he sees the engagement of headteachers in shaping that change.  As I said in the Newsletter (before reading Mr Dwyers’ words!), the world is constantly changing and at Lady Lumley’s School we will keep abreast and even ahead of these changes and always do the best for our students.

 

I wish all you a peaceful and merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

Richard Bramley
