A SUMMER BREAK!

By Will Morgan, Principal

I hope you are all enjoying a rest and the chance to get away from your desks over the summer holidays.

The end of our school year looked quite different from usual, but we recognised the effort and achievements of our whole school community, nevertheless.

During ‘enrichment fortnight’, we conducted a virtual House sports day. Poseidon was the top scoring House with 1067 points. Notable effort came from Leandros (Year 7), Cally (Year 8), Toby (Year 9) and Jacob in Year 10, who clocked up 98, 80, 109 and 72 points respectively for their Houses.

Students from all year groups took part in our virtual Cadence festival, organised by Miss Thomas. This year, unable to hold this popular event live, we shared a video medley of student performances, which shows how strong our students’ focus and sense of community has remained.

Musical output was complemented by virtual exhibitions by Years 7, 8 and 9, who responded to events during the lockdown crisis with thoughtful and expressive works of art.

If you’re keen on exercise, why not join The Cotswold School Cycling Club? It’s an online group, which you can find on the free app ‘Love to Ride’ and log your miles each time you go for a bike ride.

A reminder that our new Year 7s only start on 2nd September; the whole school returns on 3rd September. More information is on our website in our ‘Welcome’ section. Do check our website for news and updates https://cotswold.gloucs.sch.uk/.

Finally, I wish you a happy and relaxed summer. I’m looking forward to seeing all of our students next term at The Cotswold School.
