Thank you


Dear Colleagues,

As we are approaching the end to another challenging academic year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank ALL school leaders, staff, governors, children and families to congratulate everyone on all that’s been achieved.  I want to share my gratitude to all staff who have worked through the ever-changing circumstances.  I appreciate that the last school year has been particularly difficult due to various reasons including COVID, staffing issues, the re-commencement of Ofsted inspections and of course the return of statutory assessments and  GCSE, A Level and vocational qualifications.

Despite all the challenges you have continued to keep the children and young people in Halton safe and provide a high quality education, thanks to your resilience and commitment.

You should all be proud of everything that you have achieved this year and I hope you can enjoy your summer break and look forward to returning in September.

For staff who are retiring at the end of the Summer Term, I would like to wish you all a very long, happy and healthy retirement.

Kind Regards,

Mil Vasic
