College News 25th May 2018 - Half Term
Headteachers message - Examinations have started!
It will come as no surprise to our school community that examinations have started in earnest and they are going extremely well. As we end the second week there is a well earned break for our students as they regroup over half term for one final push. I have been so impressed with their preparation, behaviour and sheer dogged approach to making sure they get the most out of these exams.#
this week we say goodbye to a teacher of 30 years standing at Lutterworth College (in all of its guises). Mr Lythgoe of our Maths Faculty finally puts away his chalk and heads off into the retirement sunset. We wish him all the very best!
We can also announce that Mr Boulstridge has been appointed as Head of Faculty in English, Media and MFL. Mr Boulstridge joined us at the beginning of last year with nearly 30 years experience at the chalkface and we wish him all best in his new role that starts in September. He can be contacted at email@example.com.
Finally, the recent news that Grammar schools were to get an additional £50 million to improve applications from disadvantaged schools https://www.theguardian.com/education/2018/may/11/grammar-schools-in-england-to-get-50m-expansion-fund is particularly challenging for our schools as we strive to improve our provision for all children across our Trust. An equal part of that amount allocated to each Grammar school would have taken so much pressure of our own school which is openly inclusive for all. Leicestershire stands on its own in this respect as we have no grammar schools in the county and we are rightly proud of our comprehensive intake that go on to fantastic careers and universities.
Have a lovely bank holiday and half term
Lutterworth Academies Trust
This project goes from strength to strength and we should soon be serving refreshments from 'The Garden Shed' as well as landscaping beginning. As always please keep the donations coming in - we would love for the area to have its 'canopy' for the Autumn term.
