Merry Christmas... and relax!

Claire Tasker, Headteacher

I am struggling to remember a time when we have broken up at the end of the first term as late as 22nd December! Despite this the staff remain (mostly) chipper and focused! I cannot begin to tell you what a joy it is to work with the staff of High Storrs School. We have recently been auditing our extracurricular offer and there are now over well over 50 clubs and activities. And if we look at the past three weeks there has been an array of concerts (two), performances (two), sporting fixtures, fundraising events (two days), a Christmas Fayre and a Celebration Event. And that is the ‘extras’ … I also have the privilege of observing all the teaching staff and enjoying their classroom practice, subject knowledge and passion for working with young people. Read more

Trussell Trust Food Bank

Karen Dobson, Head of Lyceum House

We will be supporting the Trussell Trust Food Bank with the collection of items again this year. We've arranged for them to collect from us, so we need donations to be brought in to school by Friday 15th December. We're encouraging students to bring in whatever they can to the House Offices at lunchtimes or form groups can send whole form collections together. We hope that you agree that this is a great cause to support as a school and you are able to join us by sending in donations. Many thanks, and Merry Christmas! Read more
