Headteachers Comment – May 2017

Here we are again! Another holiday at the end of the week, and whilst it has not been a long half term it has certainly been busy at school. I am sure you are all ready for a break and hopefully the sun will shine, I think we have had enough rain now!

So what has Osborne been up to this half term? Firstly, the year 11’s have been working extremely hard to get all their course work together to get to the moderators in time and they have worked so hard. They will thoroughly deserve their Prom when it arrives on the 16th June, along with their very special leavers assembly. I cannot quite believe that we are almost at that time of year again!

Year 7’s have been continuing with their field studies trips to the farm and having a fantastic experience.

Year 8’s have been putting together their wares for the Summer Fayre. Sarah Criddle has been working with lots of pupils across the whole school getting the plants together for sale. The summer fayre looks to be a great day out so please book the day in your diary. 10th of June.

The residential trip to Wales was also a huge success. The young people enjoyed all the activities immensely – especially Caving! See the pictures HERE

Next half term is looking very busy! There are lots of different events such as Sports day!  We are very lucky this year to have the Army with us for the day – they very much keep us in order!

Rubik’s Cube have a few gigs lined up and then there are the all-important transition days, which I know the pupils are anxious about but it is also very exciting moving up the school.

Last week we had the new parent’s information morning for all new 7’s starting at the school in September and I would like to take this opportunity to welcome them to the Osborne community. I am sure many of them will be around on the 10th June to the Summer Fayre so hopefully you will have the chance to tell them about all the wonderful things we get up to at Osborne.

There are also some more tickets left for the Osborne School Film Festival. £6 a ticket and you get to see all the films that have been made throughout the year at Osborne School on a real cinema screen (with free popcorn).  This takes place on the 9th July at 10.45am at The Everyman Cinema in Winchester.

That just leaves me to say have a fantastic weeks over half term and I look forward to seeing you all at the various events through the next half term.

Best wishes, Sonia
