Year 11 and Year 13 – September 2018
This is going to be a big year for you! We’ve already starting planning how we are going to help, support and guide you so that you are able to achieve your personal best.
It starts by getting up and getting into school!
Year 11, I will see you all on Tuesday 4th September in the Atrium at 09:25 with your tutors. I’ve already planned your first assembly at 10:15 and I cannot wait to share with you all the wonderful things we are going to do together.
Exciting times ahead!
Uniform September 2018
From September, following consultation with students, staff and parents we have decided to allow plain black knee-length pinafores as an optional part of our school uniform for girls.
I would also like to remind all parents and students of our uniform expectations and standards, as I do regularly.
Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct uniform and footwear for September and do not purchase any items that are not part of our uniform or are unacceptable. We issue a uniform guide for parents on the website, send reminders to parents regularly by email and my weekly newsflash of the uniform and footwear expectations and what is and isn't allowed.
Gateacre School uniform, PE Kit and ties can be purchased in store from Fitwells Schoolwear in Belle Vale Shopping Centre opposite school.
Parents can download a copy of our Uniform Guide For Parents including our uniform expectations, what is and isn't allowed including a shoes guide, and where to buy.
Download the Uniform Booklet guide for parents here as a PDF, or visit the uniform information page on the website, or pick up a copy from reception.
DofE Silver and Bronze Awards
More than 40 students completed their Bronze or Silver Awards this year. Our Year 11 Silver group successfully completed their assessed expedition last week. They were a credit to themselves and the school, and completed every challenge set with a fantastic effort and attitude.
DofE expeditions are a fantastic opportunity for our students and they wouldn't have been possible without all of the support, with staff taking time out to run them, students' co-operation and parents' support .
A special mention to former student Matt Cook who attended all four expeditions and was invaluable, a fantastic role model for our students.
Future Focus: Sixth Form
Our Future Focus week for year 12 students was a great success. The students really enjoyed the week and are now focused on their future.
We collapsed Year 12’s timetable so that we had a full week of planned activities to provide students with information about their future choices. This included the launch of the UCAS process for University applications, information about apprenticeships, visits to 3 different Universities with taster sessions of various courses and the launch of the Extended Project Qualification which all students will work towards next year.
Community Fair & Family Fun Day 22nd September 2018
Open Evening – Wednesday 26th September 2018
We have already begun to plan our next Open Evening on Wednesday 26th September from 5pm to 8pm. We will provide more information nearer to the event, however if you are reading this as a parent from a primary school we can provide tours of the school at a time convenient to you and are always happy to show what we do here at Gateacre.
Term Dates and Key Dates can be found on your MyEd parent app or on the school website here: https://www.gateacre.org/about-us/term-dates/
