Welcome to Corpus Christi
The year 2018 marks a significant date in the history of our college. It was on 30 September 1968 that the Right Honourable Denis Healey officially opened the college on its current site.
As part of our celebration of this momentous occasion we are introducing a new college badge and tie which will be phased in over the next couple of years culminating in all year groups wearing them from September 2018.
Please note that the new year 7 intake in September 2016 will be expected to wear uniform which incorporates the new badge and tie. We will also be introducing a new year 11 tie which students will be expected to wear from September 2016.
There is no obligation for parents/carers of students moving into years, 8, 9 and 10 in September 2016 to purchase the new uniform until your child’s old uniform needs replacing, however you are free to do so if you wish. Whilst we are not prescriptive as to where parents/carers purchase uniform, as in previous years, the new branded uniform will be available from Rawcliffe’s. A representative from Rawcliffe’s will be available at the college on Wednesday 13 July from 3.00pm – 6.00pm should parent/carers wish to view the rebranded uniform
We are also introducing a rebranded PE kit which all year 7 students (starting September 2016) will be expected to wear. There is no immediate obligation for parents/carers of students in other year groups to purchase this unless you wish to do so.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your tremendous support in ensuring that our students have outstanding standards of uniform which is regularly acknowledged by visitors to the college and by members of the local community.
I am aware that many parents/carers are former students of the college and, therefore, hope that you too will be looking forward to the 50th Anniversary celebrations as much as we are.
Good luck to our athletics teams who are taking part in the English Schools Cup today at Thornes Park in #Wakefield.
