Headteacher's Update June 2016
Welcome back to the second half of the Summer Term at Dyson Perrins; I hope you enjoyed a restful and relaxing break. I still can’t believe how quickly this academic year seems to have gone and that we are now entering into the final period before the summer holidays.
At the time of writing, we are broadly half way through the GCSE examinations and I would like to commend our Year 11 students for the approach they have taken to these so far. Their examination conduct and preparation has been exemplary and I really hope that this will be reflected in the outcomes for this year group. I hope that the recent half term break served as an opportunity to re-charge their batteries and also continue with that all-important revision. Starting today, the remainder of the examinations come thick and fast over the next two weeks or so and I would like to wish our students every success at such a challenging and important time in their lives. I am very proud of how hard they have worked and the commitment they continue to show in lessons and revision sessions. The AS examinations are also in full flow and the majority of the A Level examinations begin in earnest from today onwards.
On the final day of last half term we celebrated the Year 13 students’ last day together and I thoroughly enjoyed being a part of their special day. Many of them have been at Dyson Perrins for seven years and it is only fitting that their time with us should be marked with a celebration. Various activities and a leavers’ assembly were followed by a Sixth Form v Staff football match that unfortunately ended in the students running out as 3 v 1 winners! It was a lovely day and I would like to thank them all for being such great ambassadors for Dyson Perrins.
