Dear Parents and Carers,
As we approach the Christmas break, I thought it would be a good opportunity to provide a short update from The Priory Learning Trust (TPLT). Can I also take this chance to wish everyone a very happy Christmas holiday and a hugely prosperous new year in 2018. Thank you, as parents / carers, for your support of TPLT’s staff over this last term.
There has been much to celebrate in our schools this term. All this good news is highlighted in our termly magazine / newsletters; these will be with you during the course of this next week. However, I’d encourage you to follow our schools on Twitter or on Facebook; there have been many really great things happening. Facebook and Twitter (although not everyone’s ‘cup of tea’) do allow us to showcase daily the many great positive examples of the work and actions of our students, teachers and support staff at both of our schools. There really is a great deal to be very proud of, such as the great charity work ongoing at both PCSA and WCSA. Thank you for your support of Ataxia UK and MacMillan Cancer Support this term. Can I stress that you can contact the schools directly by e-mail if you need further information or have particular issues to discuss with our school leaders. You can also come direct to me if you need quick answers. We pride ourselves on getting back to parents / carers very quickly. Again, thank you for your support. Staff contact details are on TPLT website and on the individual school websites.
Lastly, a brief note about The King Alfred School (TKAS), Highbridge. It is likely that TKAS will become part of TPLT in 2018 – it is an 11 – 19 school. We are currently working with this school and making really good progress. Highbridge is about 20 minutes from W-S-M. Sixth Form outcomes at TKAS are truly excellent in terms of progression to some of the top UK universities. Whilst we have always made sure all our students have opportunities to visit local colleges and schools we have not really had TKAS Sixth on our ‘radar’. Clearly, it is now. I can only say how impressed I was with the destination data and the facilities. We will now arrange visits to TKAS Sixth for our students at both WCSA and PCSA who might want a school-based 6th form experience. I know that many parents over the years have asked me about a Priory / Worle 6th Form option. Parents / students interested might like to initially contact the Head of Sixth Form at TKAS – email@example.com. We will provide more opportunities for students and parents to visit TKAS in 2018. We will be looking at transport options in 2018.
As always, please do have a look at our website for more details about The Priory Learning Trust (PLT) - www.priorylearningtrust.org.uk or contact me directly by e-mail. Our pledge is a quick reply and a first-class service.
Thank you for your support – please do feel free to contact me at any time.
Please do have a great Christmas break.
