Points of Principal

As we enter the last week of a very busy term, staff and students are continuing to work hard in lessons and the strong focus on students’ progress continues. As part of our strategic ‘Exam Ready’ programme, we have revised our whole College assessment cycle. Consequently, Year 11 students have experienced mock GCSE examinations in all subject areas during the past three weeks. These students will formally receive their results during the morning of Friday 11 January 2019. Similarly, Year 10 students will sit GCSE mock examinations during January 2019.

This week parent/carers will receive the end of term report which will inform you of your child’s Attitude to Learning and Behaviour grades for the autumn term. I am pleased to report that the number of students receiving Good and/or Outstanding grades for Attitude to Learning and Behaviour across the College has risen again.

As part of our preparation for Christmas, staff and students have participated in a number of Advent events including the East Leeds Catholic Cluster Liturgy, College services, staff retreat at Hinsley Hall, and Jamming sessions. In addition, staff and students have participated in fundraising for a variety of good causes.

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, a Dine with Corpus event has been held at the College which has provided students with an opportunity to plan, organise and host a meal for a large group of guests. Thank you and well done to the staff and students from Corpus Christi and Our Lady’s Primary School for a wonderful evening.

Friday 21 December – The last day of term will be a Christmas themed non-uniform day (students are encouraged to wear a Christmas jumper if they so wish) £1 contributions will go to the Year 10 2019 Pilgrimage to Lourdes. Thank you in advance for your support with this appeal.

May I take this opportunity to personally thank you for your continued support for the college.

We wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.
