Year 9 German students were very excited today to welcome a visiting teacher from Bracknell’s twin town in Germany.
Miss Folde who teaches English at a secondary school in Leverkusen, was delighted to be able to spend the day with our students and gain an insight into the British school system.
In the afternoon Miss Lees’ Year 9 German class showcased their film projects about life at EPCS and then had the opportunity to ask Miss Folde questions in German.
Miss Folde thoroughly enjoyed her day and was extremely complimentary about the school, facilities and our students.
We look forward to continuing our partnership with Leverkusen and hope to be able to take a group of students to Leverkusen soon!
We are aware of two significant water leaks locally, however, we have checked our systems and currently, our water pressure is fine. We will open as normal should we receive communication from the water company there is an issue we will let parents know via the website. We may close early if this is the case but currently, this is unlikely. Students should be in school as normal
Thanks for your support Liz Cook
Whilst many people were preoccupied with the football a group of students and staff attended SHPs live to screen of the musical “All about Jamie” from the Apollo Theatre in London
It was a fantastic show and well worth seeing if you get the opportunity to do so.
Students were, as ever, a pleasure to be with, I look forward to attending other events.
We have regrettably taken the decision to cancel our reserve Sports Day, originally calendared for Friday 13th July. The weather forecast is currently for a 50-60% chance of rain. The decision has also been affected by the school struggling to get a generator for this reserve date, without which we cannot provide a commentary on the track events through a public address system.
In light of sports day not taking place, we will look to create an opportunity for students to compete in House Sports competitions in September. Further details will follow nearer the time. Many thanks for your support
Due to the weather conditions predicted for Friday, Sports Day is cancelled and the reserve day of the 13th July will now be considered. The school day on the 6th of July will operate as normal with the uniform expectations set by Governors in place.
I have phoned our uniform suppliers, and they have all sizes of the PE shorts in stock They are aware our sports day has moved to the 13th of July (pending a decision on the weather conditions) and will ensure any orders placed in good time will be delivered via the school collect system the day before. This arrangement means all students should be able to access and participate in the correct kit as per our uniform policy. Please can you support the school by making sure your child has all the necessary equipment and is aware of our expectations
