As some of our older students are now starting to finish their external examinations, the internal examinations for Years 7-10 are either in full flow or imminent with the very last for any Coombe students taking place on Friday 27th June. Good Luck to them all!
This half term sees a number of events preparing us all for the new academic year. We look forward to welcoming our new Year 7 and Year 12 students and their parents to Coombe at their respective induction days and welcome evenings at the beginning of July and for all Year 10 Coombe students and their parents, we are holding our annual Sixth Form Opportunities Evening from 18.30 at Coombe Girls’ School site, Clarence Avenue.
This week marks the start of the Year 9 Enterprise week at Coombe Girls’. The Dragons’ Den presentations which took place before half term were very impressive and we look forward to seeing the innovation, creativity and resourceful approach to both design and creation that usually characterises this week and culminates in the very popular Enterprise Fair at the end of the week.
Congratulations go to the girls who performed in the Richmond Theatre showcase on 2nd June and the boys who performed Henry V at the Lyric Theatre in the West End on the same evening. We are so proud of all of our Coombe talented performers and they truly deserve the accolades that have come through since the respective performances.
On the sports front, it was a privilege to watch the Coombe Boys’ Year 9 football team become national champions shortly before half term and a real joy to watch the performances of over 400 competitors at the Sports Day on Friday where a number of Coombe records were broken; we look forward to seeing the girls perform at their Sports Day on Monday 30th June.
A real highlight of the term is always the exhibitions of art, design technology, photography and media studies work which are shown at Coombe Creates and the separate exhibitions of GCSE work at both schools. The standard this year was exceptionally high and showcased just how incredibly talented many of our students are – the precision, flair and originality of many of the pieces on display was truly impressive.
Once again, we have a very busy half term ahead and we look forward to sharing our news with you via our twitter feeds and website news updates!
