Dear Parents,

Welcome to this week’s Newsletter! With just one week left until the Winter Break, the school has been alive with events, action and, as usual, high quality learning.


Next week is the last week of term. We finish at 2.45pm on Friday. Please do come along to our Brilliant Britannica Christmas Fayre starting at 12.45.

Please complete our parent survey if you have not done so already. It really does help us to identify areas of strength and areas for development. The link was emailed out to you earlier in the week.

Year 13 Ribbon Ceremony

Last Saturday, our Year 13 parents, sixth form students and staff joined together for a very special Ribbon Ceremony at the Military Museum in the Castle District. This marks the start of their last term at Britannica and is a long standing Hungarian graduation tradition. There are some beautiful photos in the Secondary gallery of the students in their dinner jackets and dresses. They also danced the waltz impeccably.

Well done to everyone involved!

Cookie Fridays

Thank you to our parent volunteers for their hard work in organising our Cookie Fridays so far this year. In previous years, the PSA Committee has decided on what to do with the proceeds. In the absence of a committee at the current time, the school is holding the money as a separate fund, until such time when we do have parents able to support us and decide on where they would like it to go. If you would like to volunteer to help the school with this, please do get in touch.

Thank you in advance.

Secondary Music Assembly

Monday’s assembly for our Secondary students was incredible. Around twenty different students were involved in performing live and many others were included in the video performances. Well done to all the different performers and particular thanks to Angus (Y9), Anna (Y10) and Csilla and Mattea (Yr11) who performed at the Ribbon Ceremony and the assembly.

Wonderful performances from everyone, well done!

KS1 Christmas Performance

Well done to all our Year 1 and 2 students, Miss Wolland and the KS1 team for an extremely enthusiastic and dramatic Christmas performance of Penguin Pete. I was really impressed by all the children’s loud voices and beautiful singing. I was also very relieved that Pete finally made it to see Santa!

Have a great weekend.

Kind regards,

Neil McGarry
