School Closure 28th March

Dear parents and carers.

Further to the Newsletter of last week, I am sorry to tell you that Edmonton County School will be closed to students on Wednesday 28 March 2012.

The National Union of Teachers (NUT) has called for industrial action as the next step in the pensions campaign. This strike call is for London schools and the number of teaching staff who are responding to the call means that we cannot operate the school safely on Wednesday. However, some teachers of Year 11, 12 and 13 classes will be making arrangements with their classes to teach on Wednesday.

I am pleased to tell you that the Year 12 UCAS Trip to Olympia will go ahead as planned. The students need to be at the Cambridge Campus for 7.45am to allow the coaches to depart promptly, the expected return time will be 1pm. This is a very important trip to allow the Year 12 students to make informed decisions about their university application.

I apologise for any inconvenience that this news may cause you but hope you appreciate that it is beyond the school’s control.

Yours sincerely

Dr S Tranter Headteacher

ABLE, GIFTED AND TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP

On the 23rd February a workshop organised by Ms Jimenez Head of Art was held at Cambridge campus.

The year 12 and 13 A level photography students and the gifted and talented year 10& 11 photography students attended the practical photography workshop presented by professional photographer Richard Ash from the Imperial War Museum www.richardashphotography.co.uk

The students attended a whole day of activities to improve their camera handling, lighting effects and Photoshop techniques. All students took part in photographic instructed tasks to help improve their photography and their understanding of the DSLR cameras .

They also had an opportunity to see the work of a professional photographer and ask him questions about his work and experience. The day was a great success and the students produced some improve pieces of photographic work. Well done to all the students and teachers that took part.
