College news - 27th October 2017
As we return back after half term we say a fond farewell to Dr Simon Cox, a teacher at Lutterworth College (in its many guises) for over 22 years. We wish him all the very best in his new role at Loughborough University. Dr Cox wanted to leave us with this extract from Douglas Adams 'The Restaurant at the End of the Universe':
"And the wheel," said the Captain, "What about this wheel thingy? It sounds a terribly interesting project."
"Ah," said the marketing girl, "Well, we're having a little difficulty there."
"Difficulty?" exclaimed Ford. "Difficulty? What do you mean difficulty? It's the single simplest machine in the entire Universe!"
"Alright, Mr Wiseguy," she said, "If you're so clever, you tell us what colour it should be."
As we are sending out our half-termly magazine, Sapere Aude, this week we are keeping this week's blog short - I'm sure there is enough material in the magazine to keep you occupied but I must pay homage to Finlay Quinn & Ethan Smith, both Year 13 Media students, who have done an absolutely fantastic job with the magazine format and content; and I hope you really enjoy it!
We are already working on the Christmas version of Sapere Aude which will be published by the end of term this time!

Don't forget tomorrow is The Big Draw - community event for everyone to get involved with at Lutterworth College main school hall from 11.00am - 2pm - all invited!
Finally, for parents of Year 11 students, our Sixth Form Open Evening is on Thursday 16th November 2017 - please ensure that you are registering your attendance by booking a ticket to one of the talks through our main College website.
Have a lovely weekend
Nick Summers - Headteacher
