Last Friday night saw our Ibstock Community College musicians perform to a packed hall at the joint Ibstock / Ashby / Ivanhoe concert. It was a wonderful evening and an opportunity for our students to perform with their peers. The students were professional in their approach, vibrant in their performance and supportive of others. Congratulations to all of them.
The second of our year seven parents evenings took place on Tuesday and again we were pleased with the positive response to the work that we do and the views on our reports. These will be available for year eight students at the end of May.
We say farewell at the end of this term to Tracy Allen, who has been a valuable part of our staff for over six years. Tracy joined the science department in 2008 and has since worked as an advanced skills teacher and as part of the senior leadership team. Tracy brought a warmth and dedication to all aspects of her work and she leaves for new challenges with the best wishes of the school.
As we reach the end of a busy term I would like to wish our year nine students the best as they head towards their final term with us. In that short space of time they will have a build-up of revision, end of year examinations, end of year trips and the year nine prom. This will be a hectic schedule for each one of them, but one which will set our students in good stead for their challenges next year.
I wish all of our families a restful break and we look forward to welcoming our students back on Monday 13 April. Year seven students will be straight into their Manor Adventure and we look forward to hearing all about how that went.
