The plans for our 25th Anniversary celebration and thanks giving service during the evening of the 26th June are coming together. We are expecting a number of ex-pupils, their families and our friends in the community to join us. If you fit one of these categories let us know and you will be very welcome. There will be a show of photos to illustrate how the school has evolved, but the best thing will be being together. Everyone will be able to catch up over food and hopefully we will be able to open the mike up to some impromptu entertainment. As always with the school, the event will be understated but hugely enjoyable. At the time of writing there are five GCSE exams left this season. We are incredibly proud of our student’s attitude and behaviour. The fact that they thank our invigilators at the end of an exam shows what amazing young people they are. We hope we make them proud at their Leavers Assembly and give them our very best wishes for the future. Leavers’ Assembly is an afternoon where the current year 10s plan a party to send off our Year 11s. A fun but sad time. Joshua 1:9 “…Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Elsewhere in school, we have welcomed new pupils into our Early Years Department; our Year’s 4 to 6 students visited the Essex Schools Food and Farming Day at Writtle; our Year 9 and 10 students headed into London to watch a production of Macbeth at The Rose Theatre; and our 10 Business Studies students visited Bishop’s Stortford on a fact finding research exercise involving an evaluative lunch. If you would like to know more about the education we offer, please look at the school website (www.tcst.org.uk) where you will find a prospectus and details of our admission process. The next step would be to contact the school office on 01279 871182 to arrange a tour at a mutually convenient time. We have limited places available for September 2015 in some of our year groups.
