Goodbye Class of 2018 On Wednesday 13th June we said goodbye to our Year 11 students in their leavers’ assembly. From now on Year 11 will only come into school for their exams and structured revision sessions. After working with them for the last five years we wish them all the best for the future and look forward to seeing them at the school’s prom on Friday 29th June. More details about revision sessions, home study and other leaving arrangements can be found on our website: http://www.avonvalleyshcool.org/index.php/news/letters-home Year 11 Uniform Donations As your child reaches the end of their time at The Avon Valley School, I wanted to thank you for your support over the last five years. The supportive relationship that has existed between home and school has been a significant benefit to us as a school and to your child’s progress and development. As your son/daughter moves on to the next stage of education I wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated your commitment to the school and with you and your child all the very best for the future. As your child moves on they will be taking with them a lifetime of memories—but one thing that many of them will not with to keep for posterity is their uniform! I appreciate of course that in some families this will be recycled to a younger sibling but if, in your household, it is destined for the charity shop or the bin then the school would be very grateful for any donations of unwanted uniform that can be recycled for other students. In particular the school frequently lends out blazers and ties and these two items would be of immediate use to us. Students wishing to donate any items after they have completed their final exam will be given a raffle ticket in return, this raffle will be drawn on prom night. With my very best wishes for the future for yourself and your family. Alison Davies Headteacher
