Claires Court Bulletin
FROM THE HEADS OF SIXTH FORM
Our Heads of School, Lauren Walters and Tom Williams, did an amazing job of hosting the 2016 Speech Day. With musical interludes by Ed Axtell, aided by James Roach, and Emily King and Moyin Forsythe assisting the guest speaker, Professor Andrew Williams, the Sixth Form student leaders were on show and made the afternoon run very smoothly. Also special thanks to our musicians on the day, Alastair Roberts-Rhodes and Will Davies and again to James Roach, whose contributions were outstanding. All were great ambassadors for the Sixth Form.

Reminder about the absence line
A reminder to parents that if a student is unwell or will not be attending school for an appointment, please can you call the Sixth Form absence line on 01628 411489 before 9am so we are aware of their absence. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept absence calls from the student themselves, it must be from a parent or guardian.
ELECTRONIC ENTRY AND EXIT
Claires Court 1st XV team travelled to local rivals Borlase for this weeks match. Previous 1st XV games against Borlase have always been close, and highly contested. This match was equally impressive. Borlase had the majority of the possession, testing the Claires Court defence. The game was extremely physical, but the strength of the Borlase attack proved too much for the brave Claires Court defence. The final score was 20-3 to Borlase, but did not refelct how closely the game was fought.
