Dear parents and carers, 

As we conclude the first half of this academic year at the end of term 3 (already!) I write with our Trust’s end of term Pillars of Excellence Newsletter, attached

As always, there is so much to celebrate with our students across all of our schools and throughout our Trust’s Pillars in Academic Excellence, Performing Arts, Practical Learning and Sport. I very much hope that you will enjoy flicking through the newsletter in the coming days.

It is almost impossible to highlight specific achievements across these areas, but I guess the most recent, fully inclusive event that stands out, highlighting our Trust’s culture and value set, would be our annual Sports Awards Evening; celebrating all of the wonderfully talented young people in attendance, with Shane McGuigan as guest speaker.

This event, in particular, embodied how we wish to provide our students, our families and our community, with as much as possible, as often as possible, for as many as possible. How we believe that every young person is special, and strive to develop our students as individuals; embracing all that they are uniquely brilliant at.

Moving forward, there is much to look forward to across our Trust in term 4 and beyond. Not only will the weather get warmer and the days get longer, but I will be able to update you on more exciting developments across our schools and for all of the students, families and communities throughout the Canterbury District, which we are incredibly proud to serve.

I know that Heads of School have been in touch about the details for the start of next term, and we shall look forward to seeing all of our students on 19th February for a normal school day.

With my every best wish for the half-term break,



Jon Watson
Chief Executive Officer
