Welcome Letter To Parents

Dear Parents

My Colleagues and I offer you and your child a very warm welcome to the Sir John Colfox School.

We will all work together with you to ensure a really happy and successful education which will lead through to adulthood.

We are very pleased that because of additional government funding as a specialist school, we are able to offer unusually generous opportunities for learning languages, for travel and for lending an international dimension to our curriculum.

Our students will achieve things that they have never before thought possible. They will learn a wide range of exciting subjects, gain a large number of skills and subsequently look back on a fine record of personal development.

They will have fine memories of musical events, and sporting achievements, drama experiences, and public speaking, foreign exchanges and a wide range of cultural visits both in this country and abroad.

Very importantly, they will carry with them the highest level of qualification which they can achieve.

We all look forward to sharing with you and with them this very exciting stage in their lives.

We want for our children

We want for all our children a happy and constructive educational experience which leads to a National Record of Achievement at age 16 which gives evidence of at least the following for each individual:
