We held our Open Evening this week - the first here since 2019. There are pictures later in this newsletter that capture some of the energy and excitement of the evening. As well as this, it is often a moment when I try to summarise the unique nature of our school community to families who may be visiting us for the very first time. At the centre of my messages were our shared values, and our resolute determination to sustain MCS as an exceptional school for the whole community.
I was particularly impressed by our students and their commitment to the School. As well as our Head Students, who presented excellently to hundreds of parents and carers, there were student representatives in every curriculum area, as well as Prefects who led tours. They all did themselves proud! Many thanks also to our staff, who really went 'all in' once again.
All the best to you all for a restful weekend.
We would like to remind parents about safety on and around the School site.
At the start of the day, the safe ‘drop-off’ point for students arriving by car is at the rear of the School in the car park accessed via the Dixton Road. Please use the drop-off zone (the vehicle to pavement area on the left) and then exit the school site. Please do not park in the parking bays to drop off your child/children. If you need to park and come into School, please use the visitor car park located adjacent to the Leisure Centre, off the Old Dixton Road and report to Reception on arrival.
Students can be safely collected from the car park at the end of the school day from 3.20pm, once home to school transport vehicles have exited.
Your ongoing co-operation is appreciated.
The Book Fair is returning with all the best new books!
The Book Fair will be in the Main Atrium at breaks from Friday 7th October to Wednesday 12th October.
Books can be bought using cash, gift vouchers paid for online or using a QR code.
Book Fair Gift Vouchers are the simple, secure way to ensure your child gets the books they want when the Book Fair arrives
Once a purchase has been made, you will receive the voucher in an email which can be printed and given to your child – much safer to carry than cash!
Vouchers can be purchased up until midnight on the day before the collection of the Book Fair. Please speak to your school to confirm the Book Fair dates.
Students can pay for books online while they’re at the Fair!
The QR code will be displayed at the Book Fair. Students can scan the code on their phones to easily access online payment.
Alternatively, cash can be paid on the day to the people running the Book Fair.
