SIXTH FORM

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR PRIZE WINNERS AT SPEECH DAY

A big thank you must go to our student leaders, especially Ross Muil, Head Boy and Simran Shabir, Head Girl, who spoke eloquently and with confidence about the many and varied events our students enjoyed during the year. The whole team put together an excellently crafted 8 minute video on the students experiences at Claires Court which was very well received. Credit must also be given to Ed Axtell and James Roach who performed musical interludes in front of 1000 guests.

It was great to see so many former Sixth Form students returning from University and employment to collect their subject prizes and speak so warmly about their memories and times with the Sixth Form.

SPORTS WINNERS

This week our U18 teams all proved victorious, a great start to the sporting year for Sixth formers.

The 1st Rugby team defeated Forest 50 - 7 with scorers Ronan McGann, Jack Blakely, Miles Williamson, Owain Griffiths, Myles Peters, Keiran Gray and Connor Thomas. The 2nd Rugby team also defeated Forest but with a more modest 14 - 12 scoreline. Scorers were James Roach and Todd Linley.

The U18 Hockey team won their match against Leighton Park, 3 -1 with goals scored by Moyin Forsythe, Laura Kidd and Esme Molhoek. Well done.

REMINDER TO YEAR 12 PARENTS

In order to make sure our medical information is up to date we ask all parents to complete a new medical form when students come into our Sixth Form. A green form was sent home with all students on Thursday if we do not already had a current form from your son or daughter. Thank you to those parents who returned it so promptly on Friday, but please can I urge those who still have it at home to complete it and send it in on Monday morning. If the form seems to have gone missing in the 'pupil post' please email me on flm@clairescourt.com and I will supply another.

Thank you,

Faye Meek
