College News - Christmas 2018
Headteachers message - Leavers and Starters
As this is the last newsletter of the term I wanted to thank those staff leaving the Trust at the end of the term – Mrs Albans, Mr White, Ms O’Connor, Mr Oladipo, Mrs Hargreaves and Mrs Veganwala from teaching staff – and Mrs Towe, Ms Bland and Mr Warmington from support staff. We thank these staff for all of their hard work with the Trust and we wish them the best in the future.
Also important is to let you know as well who is joining the Trust in January. In the teaching staff cohort we have Mr Akthar joining us as Head of Science & Technology, Mrs Caballero in Modern Foreign Languages, Mr Vekaria in Maths and Mrs Wallace in Business. Also joining us are Miss Hebb who will be covering Mrs Hodges maternity leave and Miss Stanhope who is covering MRs Wadsworth's maternity leave. Charlie Webb has also joined the Trust this week as a front-line technician to supplement the IT support team.
I will be sending out an 'end of term letter' to all parents next week.
In the meantime, have a great weekend.

School legacy display
A group of Duke of Edinburgh students are in the process of creating a Lutterworth College (Grammar) legacy display and they are looking for any old photographs of staff, students, events, the buildings etc. If you have any to donate or that can be borrowed for scanning and returned please could you let Mr at the College Bailey firstname.lastname@example.org know!
Medic Society Club
Starting from next week, there will be a new Medic Society Club for those who are interested in careers in medicine, veterinary medicine and dentistry. It is an opportunity to gain insight into these careers, prepare for what to expect, talk with others who are interested and learn from the professionals themselves when they come and visit to mentor us. It will run every week 2 Tuesday lunch in S1 from 1:30 - bring your lunch!

Phone App warning for parents
Please take a look at the image below, this has been circulated by Surrey Police.Statistics show that approximately 40% of smartphone users of secondary school age are using Social Media for around 3-5 hours per day. Parents that understand what some of the applications are that are installed on these devices can really help tackle issues such as cyber-bullying.
