Update: December 2013

Posted 12/12/2013

We are approaching the Christmas holiday after a long term with the vast majority of boys making excellent progress. The behaviour point scores have been very impressive every week, and a lot of boys have continued to earn a lot of the reward tokens that we call currics. As usual at this time of year many have also decided to spend some - so don't be surprised when some return home with their prizes. Some have been saving for a long time and have some quite high value rewards. Some have been thinking of others too and have cashed in their currics to buy Christmas presents for family.

In the last week of term we have our Christmas lunch on Tuesday and the school production on Thursday. A letter has been sent out but I would like to remind those planning to come on Thursday that we need to speak to you first to make sure we have enough seats for everyone in the room. Please telephone the units on Monday evening - we hope to say yes to all groups but please understand that sometimes we cannot fit everyone in!

Everyone at Brompton Hall hopes you have a very enjoyable Christmas holiday and a very happy new year!

Tomorrow we say goodbye to Anne Raisen who has been with us since October 2007. She has worked afternoons and evenings cooking and serving lunches and teas. You may be aware that the meals at Brompton Hall are the envy of many schools and she has played an important role in maintaining this high standard. On a personal note – I will also miss the extra fruit and cream she always finds for me when fruit salad comes around on the menu! We wish Ann a very happy and relaxing retirement that has been very well earned!

Update from the Head

I am aware that last week was a difficult for some parents with the school having to close on Tuesday. I can assure you that this was not what we wanted to do - but there was no real option. The boys coped well with the additional travel and the LA were very supportive in arranging for the additional taxies.

Rosedale had to postpone their trip to The Yorkshire Wildlife Park last week due to the closure - but they were able to go on Monday this week. They all enjoyed the experience and saw animals they had not seen before. One even mistook a zebra for a leopard!

This week our year 10 group are out on their first work experience. This is a good first taste for them - we use some well established local placements where we know they will be well looked after. The early feedback is very positive!

Next week we have two football tournaments - on for Primary and one for Secondary. I'm sure the boys will do well and represent the school as well as the tag rugby team did at the start of the term.

All back at school and back into the swing of things at the start of the 2013 - 2014 academic year. The summer holidays now seem a very long time ago! It was lovely to welcome all the boys back to school last week. Everyone seemed happy enough to be back and the atmosphere around the school has been very good indeed - and 32 black passes in week 1!!

Today sees the launch of this new website. There has been a lot of work to put it all together led by Mrs Young. I very much hope you enjoy looking through it! We hope to post regular updates - keep everyone informed of coming events and adding new pictures to the gallery pages.
