Dear parent/ carers
How quickly this half term has gone by. You will see from our front page that our new Year 7 have settled in well. During the Year 7 Information Evening I know they were showing you around the school. The girls learn very quickly how to get to the different classrooms on their timetable. We are very impressed with their first few weeks at Bentley Wood.
We are also pleased with how well our new year 12 have started their A level and BTEC courses. The students have shown their commitment to working and studying beyond school.
All students have returned to school with a very positive attitude to their learning. This is very pleasing. We have new teaching and support staff at Bentley Wood this year. All colleagues have said how well the girls behave and show respect for adults and each other.
You will see in the newsletter that clubs and trips have started again this term. These experiences are a very important part of education. We know how much the girls learn when attending different clubs. Once again, we have a ‘Year of Reading’. You will see the different activities taking place. We do expect all students to read at home. We have a well-stocked library and the girls can borrow books during lunch, break or after school. The library is open until 5pm and our librarian, Ms Mortimer, is always there to help.
I do hope you enjoy reading the newsletter. We are very proud of the girls and all that they achieve. We have already seen some parents in person this year which has been really great. We look forward to seeing more of you this half term. As always, if you wish to have an individual meeting please do contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org. I usually keep Monday evening as my parent/carer meeting time. We highly value our working partnership with you.
I hope you have some enjoyable family time this week.
