Dear Parents

 

Working with Marble Arch London (https://marble-arch.london) Mrs Hampton is actively trying to improve the safety for our families within the Edgware Road area,  This includes extending the time for pedestrians crossing the roads and clear signage being added to the junctions on Seymour Street and Stanhope Place.  To this end Transport for London have a number of proposals for new pedestrian crossings, improved junction and a introduction of a 20 mph speed limit.  There are several upcoming events organised by Marble Arch London where interested parents can meet the Tfl team and discuss the proposals.  Any parents who feel they can support Mrs Hampton in her endeavours are asked add their voice by visiting the link below to view the plans and provide your feedback:

Form Six are delighted to have Ms Grunewald back in school after a period of convalescence and they have all enjoyed being back together for English!

 

Many of our pupils are visiting senior schools currently and we have had very positive feedback from those who visited Francis Holland North, Queen’s Gate, Highgate, Kensington Park and South Hampstead, amongst others.  We are also looking forward to our CHS Parent tour of Kensington Park School (Forms 3-5) at the end of the month in line with the priority pathway that exists between our two schools.  This will include the parents of boys, our first coeducational cohort, who have opted to take the 11+ and remain at CHS until Form 6.

 

Please do remember that individual and sibling photographs will be taken on Monday morning (12th) in time for possible Christmas gifts for grandparents, etc.

 

We are thrilled with the uptake of the children’s personalised Christmas cards.  The order deadline has now passed and so unfortunately we can no longer accept any late orders.

 

The positive response to the digital online booking programme for Parent Meetings has been excellent.  For those few parents who have yet to make an appointment, please do so at the earliest opportunity as very few time slots remain available.

 

This term we were lucky enough to have a former pupil, Miss Sadh, rejoin CHS as a work experience volunteer to gain a better understanding of a career in teaching.  During the 8-week period that she spent in school, she has made herself very useful throughout the year groups, supporting our Junior One pupils in their first weeks, enjoying the creativity that Mrs Rogers has brought to Form One and, more recently, observing and working in the senior classes.  On behalf of all members of staff, we would like to extend a big thank you and good luck to Miss Sadh for a career in education.  We cannot think of a person more suited to becoming a teacher and we look forward to remaining in contact over the years to come.

 

 

Wishing you all a very happy weekend.

 

The CHS Team
