Happy Advent Everyone

I love Christmas but refuse to start getting ready for Christmas until December so I am delighted that I can finally recognise the Christmas lights in York on my way home tonight to watch the Coca Cola advert on TV and know that “Holidays are coming”.

There is a lot to do before then with three weeks left in the term.  Year 11 are into the second week of their practice exams.  Overall the attitude and the behaviour has been superb.  The students will be receiving their results on Tuesday 19th December.  Hard work and good revision is always rewarded.

Great effort from the Year 11 basketball team in narrowly losing to the Vale of York this week and the Year 7 girls rugby team deserve praise for playing against teams that were twice there size this week.

With the weather this cold I expect you will all be wanting one of the headbands that I was modelling last week!

Have a good weekend sorting out your Christmas decorations.
