Updated: Letter to Parents regarding Hot Weather

Update: Wednesday 1st July 2015

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you to parents/carers who have supported today’s concession to our uniform policy and whose children have arrived to school dressed as requested.

I am however disappointed with the number of students wearing shorts and by all accounts with their parents support.

As one of the few schools in the local area to have made such a concession re uniform, I am saddened that with only one day of extreme weather predicted, it was deemed by many as not supportive enough.

Tomorrow, Thursday 2nd July, I will be expecting all students back into ties and blazers.

Your support in the above is expected and appreciated.  It is only by working together that we can present all our students with the right messages.

Yours sincerely

AThomsonWebSig

Dear Parents/Carers,HotWeatherAlert

It would appear that tomorrow is going to be a hot day with temperatures predicted at over 30°C.  From what I can also gather looking at the long term forecast the temperatures will then dip significantly.

On Wednesday 1st July students are allowed to come to school without blazers and ties.  Short sleeved white shirts (NOT polo) are acceptable.  Please also ensure that they have a water bottle with them and should you wish them to be protected during lunch time they can wear hats.

If things change regarding the long term weather predictions I will continue to communicate with you about the uniform requirements.

Thank you for your support.

Travellers using the Abbey Line are being greeted by a newly-renovated entrance to the station in St Albans – thanks for students at a local school.

The improved entrance marks the 10th anniversary of the Abbey Community Line Partnership which brings together the railway, local government, business and the local community to benefit the service.

Students from The Marlborough Science Academy designed artistic panels for the station entrance gate depicting the history of St Albans and the railway.

They researched the history of the railway and the city to gain inspiration for this project and came up with a range of ideas, many of which were incorporated into the final design of the new gateway.

The project also included the renovation of the original brick pillars, the only remaining features of the original station which was demolished in the 1960s.

Cllr Terry Douris, chairman of the Community Rail Partnership, said: “We are delighted to make this our 10th anniversary year project. This has shown a real demonstration of the essence of Community Rail, bringing the local community and railway together for the benefit of local people.”

He added: “A great team of partner organisations have delivered this complex project.”
