The College will close at 1:00 p.m. on both results days.

Finally, we will re-open for students on Wednesday 3rd September 2014. We are looking forward to welcoming all students back to school particularly our new Year 7. New Year 7 students will be met at the front of the College, by senior staff, and escorted to the Chapel for a start of year assembly. The assembly will be taken by Mr Eccles, the new headteacher at St. Mary's Catholic College.

Yours sincerely,

Truetube Winner

Over Lent we had been learning about the Easter story and entered a competition on the Truetube website. The competition was to write a voice over script in the form of a piece of creative writing on the last supper and the crucifixion of Jesus. Well I'm pleased to announce that we had two shortlisted from 7Z1. Amelia Weaver who went on to win the competition and Megan Holman who was a well deserved runner up.

The prize was to have an all expenses paid trip to London to the recording studio to record her script professionally. Amelia and her mum enjoyed the day! despite it being tiring! Truetube were very impressed by Amelia's entry and the quality of her vocal skills on the day.

I am very proud of both students and the quality of the entries from all the students was very high. Well done Amelia!
