16th May 2016

On the new build front we are at the stage where we put out to tender for companies to bid for the work involved.  This includes project management work, legal support and of course the building work itself.  This stage will be followed by the contracted companies working on planning and ensuring that all is in place ready for building to begin; probably not until around November 2016.  Looking at all the successful bids to the Condition Improvement Fund it does appear to be that ours is one of the largest projects at £2.96 million.  We look forward to the point when we can show you the plans and drawings for the two storey block itself.

Last Saturday (14th May) we enjoyed an extremely successful and enjoyable Race Night held at the Kinver Community Association.  This event was organised by the Kinver High School Association and as ever, we are very grateful to the KHSA for all the hard work that went into the evening.  In particular the chief organisers, Kate Morrison and Charlie Corns, put in an incredible amount of work to make sure the event was a roaring success not only as an enjoyable evening but particularly in terms of the amount of money raised.  The event raised £2,500 which is a superb achievement for one event.  Kate and Charlie spent months working to ensure we had sponsorship, raffle prizes, auction items and enough paying guests to make this tremendous amount of money.  We cannot thank Kate and Charlie enough for their effort and commitment on behalf of the school.

Today saw our Year 11 and Sixth Form students embark on their public examinations with the beginning of the exam season for GCSE and A Level.  Our students have shown outstanding commitment to their studies and preparations.  The participation in extra intervention work, revision classes and holiday and weekend sessions has been very high.  Our staff have worked tirelessly to go that extra mile for our students.  The amount of intervention and extra support staff have been able to provide has been the highest we have ever been able to provide.  We have also been delighted with the way our sixth form students have supported their Year 11 colleagues through mentoring and revision programmes.  Predictions for GCSE results do look extremely promising.  We wish our students every success.  They certainly deserve it.
