Congratulations go to the CREST team who recently visited the House of Lords and scooped 2nd place in the national STEM awards. A fantastic achievement in an area that will be very useful to future careers.
Our sports teams continue to excel, with our football teams playing at St George's Park in the Burton and District Schools FA finals and Year 10 becoming 2014 Year 10 Cup Winners!
Year 11 have started their mock exams this week and we look forward to the (mock) Results Day in January when they will receive their grades.
Christmas is very close now, and our Christmas Concert takes place on the 10th December in the Junior Hall and tickets are available from The Performing Arts Department (£3 Adults, £2 Concessions). Our Steel Pan Band played at the Christmas Lights Switch On this year and we will be taking part in Save the Children's 'Christmas Jumper' fundraising event on the 12th December (more details on this to follow from the Student Council). As is traditional, we will be finishing at 1.30pm on the 19th December.
Our next parent forum will be postponed to January 22nd, where we will focus on study skills and intervention following the mock results.
For Year 9 parents, please note that Options Evening will be on the 7th January, starting at 6pm. This is your opportunity to ask questions and find out about the courses available in the options process. It is early this year to allow plenty of time for effective advice and guidance before final choices are confirmed.
There is also lots more detail on our Facebook and Twitter pages which you may find of interest so please have a look - https://www.facebook.com/thewilliamallittschool and https://twitter.com/william_allitt.
