We have almost come to the end of our mock exams, and our Year 11, 12 and 13 students will be anxiously waiting for feedback on how well they have done in preparation for the actual IGCSE, AS and A2 examinations which are looming on the horizon.

The rest of the Collegiate is busy working towards the Easter break, with studies interspersed by annual island sporting competitions (inter-school athletics and volleyball).

We encourage all parents and guardians to enthuse their children at this important stage of the year, so that they can each realise their true potential as they move along their path of study.

This week’s newsletter repeats some of the items from last week.

With thanks and best wishes,
Anthony Wilkinson

♠ Lost Property

Abandoned property continues to cause problems; especially when it is not labelled. This week’s items include expensive calculators, thermal lunch boxes and drinks coolers. Please label everything in your child’s bag…or better still – have THEM take on more responsibility and label everything, then look after it.

♣ Survey of Student Eating Habits

We shall be surveying all stud ents tomorrow or Thursday to enquire about their eating habits, conscious of the fact that not all of them enjoy a proper breakfast or lunch. We invite all responses to be given anonymously. Together with the PTA, we are looking at the possibility of setting up a breakfast club, which could run from 0715 to 0745, if the need is proven. This is not intended to give most students an extra ten minutes in bed in the morning! It is a serious attempt to ensure that all our students have access to the proper nutrition to ensure that they are ‘thinking fit’ when they arrive for class.

♥ March 5 – National Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving Service

The Collegiate has been invited to participate in the National Prayer, Praise and Thanksgiving Service, in the company of the Premier, The Hon. Sharlene Cartwright-Robinson, at 2.30pm on Sunday 5th March at Bethany Baptist Church. I shall be asking students whether they would like to accompany me in representing the school at this service. Should we have too many volunteers, we shall be obliged to make a selection to ensure fair representation.

♦ March 7 – Options Survey Due

We have asked students in Years 7, 8 and 9 to complete a survey about IGCSE courses, taking into account the possibility of adding Music and/or Physical Education to the range of IGCSEs we offer. These are both academic courses with a practical component; more information is available at

  • http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and-qualifications/cambridge-igcse-music-0410/
  • http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and-qualifications/cambridge-igcse-physical-education-0413/

Whether we are able to offer either or both of these courses all depends on viable uptake.

The survey must be returned by Tuesday 7th March.
