Deputy Head Teacher

Since I was appointed Head Teacher in January 2018, the post of Deputy Head Teacher has been vacant.   Interviews have taken place this week to appoint a new Deputy Head Teacher.  Governors and school advisers have been in school to oversee and formalise the process.  We hope to make an appointment by the end of this week and to announce the name of the new Deputy Head Teacher straight after half term.    Mrs J Rigby—Head Teacher

Musical Fundraiser
Last Wednesday, Miss Kalia and the Production Team organised a Musical Fundraiser at Meadow to raise money towards this year’s Summer Show “West End High”.   The  Script Writers’ Club have written an original story using some famous songs and scenes from different musical shows and have begun to rehearse this year’s production.

The Sixth Formers took on more responsibility this year, as many of them served and helped on the vening, showing great independence, and professionalism on the night.

With the success from last year’s fundraiser, students requested another evening of fun for their families to come along to.  Parents enjoyed being involved and described it as “a lovely way to meet other parents and chance to socialise”.  

At the party there was food made by the Food Tech Department.  Delicious mini burgers, fries, nachos, cupcakes and nibbles were all themed to match the musical evening and served to tables by all the staff dressed as Musical theatre characters. 

Mr Ho performed on his keyboard and invited guests to sing along for karaoke and entertainment from the staff school band got everyone up to dance.

There were many games and interactive fun for the students to take part in with some great prizes and they got to act silly at the photo booth with props!

An Art Auction, a Raffle and an ice cream and popcorn stall too, all added to the fun.

It was lovely to see so many parents, governors and students enjoy the event as it has become so hugely popular over the years to unravel the theme in the Summer show.

The evening was a huge success and students and staff have decided they wanted to raise money towards a new camera for the hall to live stream performances to classrooms, as well as props and costumes.  We raised over £600 !

Thank you to all the families, staff, pupils and Governors who supported this event.

Please find below a few feedback quotes and photos from the evening. More photos will be on the website very soon.
