Dear Parents and Carers
As we complete another school term, we are so proud as we look back over all that the students have achieved in such a challenging year. We are exceedingly fortunate to have such a positive force of young people and supportive staff.
We were all very disappointed that our end of term activities – both Proms, RRSA Day, Sports Day, Year 7 Talent Show etc. were cancelled; which is such a shame as many lovely messages regarding what we have managed to do have been received from parents. Information will follow to re-schedule these events next term.
The Summer School is still running next week for those students who have been invited to attend
This year we have sadly had to say ‘goodbye’ to Mrs Catherine Hall, who has been with us as Leader of Food Technology for 12 years. Mrs Hall has been a great asset to the school and will be greatly missed. She has inspired both students and trainee teachers alike over her career and we wish her all the best for her next adventures.
Several other staff are leaving this summer and we wish them all every success in their new ventures –Ms Victoria Carey, Mrs Gemma Dartmouth, Miss Megan Deakin, Mrs Linda Ferron, Mrs Susannah Greenwood, Miss Rain Robinson, Mrs Sian Hawes and Mr Julian Simms.
We have several new staff joining in September and we look forward to welcoming them next term –
Mr Thomas Butler – English
Mr Michael Kimber – Maths
Miss Louise Mayes – English
Miss Dominique Quinn – Food Technology
Miss Paula Taylor – PE
Mr Daniel Turner – Science
Dates for your diary –
Thursday 2 September – Inset Day – students not required to attend
Friday 3 September – the new Year 7 students only
Monday 6 September – all students to return
Current guidance is for all students to conduct an on-site Lateral Flow Test on Friday 3 September 2021. (This is the latest guidance and may be subject to change – updates will be posted on the school website)
The new Year 7 students will complete their LFT during Tutor Time and then continue with their first day in school.
We ask that Years 8-11 come to school on Friday 3 September to take a LFT between 9.00am – 1.30pm and then return home.
On behalf of everyone at the Bourne Community College, I would like to thank you all for working with us throughout the pandemic and the year, to ensure our students have been supported in the best possible way. We recognise the significant pressures we all have been under, in regard to maintaining Covid-19 measures until the end of term, and also where we have had to ask groups of students to self-isolate due to contact with positive Covid cases.
May I wish you all a great summer ahead, both safe and warm and we look forward to starting afresh in September.
