Newsletter February 2024

February 2024


Dear Students, Parents and Carers,

Only 5 weeks since our last newsletter but still so much to share and celebrate. I write this letter on day 2 of the school production of The Wizard of Oz. The 74 students and 9 members of staff who make up the exceptionally skilled and talented cast, crew and production teams have entertained and thrilled us again with this stunning performance, bringing one of my favourite stories to life through spectacular live performances.

In this first edition of the spring newsletter, you can see the Bentley Wood Community has been very busy. The whole of Year 9 participated in the First Give charity programme and 9TC’s presentation on New Citizens Gateway was excellent. We are very proud of the whole year group and the commitment and dedication they have shown for their chosen local charities. A variety of different speakers have visited us this half term and students continue to go on trips and support their local community through a vast and varied personal development program.

I hope you enjoy reading all the articles. Do remember to catch up with the student and parent advice pages at the end of the booklet.

Year 11, 12 and 13 students, we look forward to seeing you pop in and out over the half term week. Please check the timetable and library opening times carefully so you make the best use of the support on offer to you.

Have a wonderful half term break.

Yours sincerely,

Naseema Akbar
