Head Teacher Christmas Update 2014

Head Teacher Christmas Update 2014

Dear Parent/Carer/Guardian,

We have finally made it to the end of a very long and very busy first term!

As well as all the hard work that has taken place in lessons and after-school classes, we have had two successful Flexible Learning Days, several wonderful musical performances, a brilliant Christmas Fayre and two inter-house competitions this term! The most recent competition was a Bishy Bake-Off and I was extremely impressed by the quality of the all the entries in every round. The final took place last night and the four finalists each produced an amazing show-stopper. After some very difficult (but tasty) judging, Jamie Jones (11 GLP) took the crown, Mac Allison (10 SEG) came second, Jennie Hawkes (11AAS) came third and Chloe McManus (8SEK) came fourth. All four should be extremely proud of themselves, but I would like to give a special mention to Chloe for holding her own against much older competitors. She is definitely one to watch for next year’s competition!

Wear Your Christmas Jumper To School day

Christmas cheer helps to raise money for Children in Need

Wear Your Christmas Jumper To School day

Christmas has come early to Bishopsgarth School! As well as the traditional Christmas dinner, today also saw many staff and pupils pay £1 to take part in the first ever Wear Your Christmas Jumper To School day.

The day was the brainchild of year eleven pupil Emily Bullas (left) and year ten pupil Eve Howsden (right) and all money raised went to support either Children In Need or the Y11 Leavers’ Prom Fund.
