Sixth Form at Christ the King College
Record numbers of students are returning to the Sixth Form and coming to us from elsewhere, but please note that it is not too late to join us. If your Sixth Form plans have recently changed, please do not hesitate to contact us at the College either by telephoning 01983 537070 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team will make all the necessary arrangements with you to visit us and discuss your options.
On behalf of the Governing Body, and in accordance with Paragraph 1.4 of the Schools Admission Code 2014, the Governing Body of Christ the King College will admit 270 students to Year 7 in September 2015. The Governing Body agreed this increase for 2015 only, at a meeting of the full Governing Body Committee, held on Thursday 22nd January 2015.
I am very much aware that last week’s Principal’s Message was lengthy as I shared with you the news of those colleagues moving on to new positions. Also leaving Christ the King College this term are three of our highly regarded, vastly experienced and hugely valued governors. It is with great sadness that we say farewell to Father Gerard, Father PJ and Keith Goodhead. All three colleagues have been a significant part of the journey of Christ the King College and it is difficult to imagine that they will not be with us throughout the next stages. As I write this, however, I know that we will continue to be in their prayers as they will be in ours. On behalf of the community, I would like to extend my sincere thanks for all of the support, wisdom and humour that these wonderful colleagues have brought to our College. They will be missed. Of course, today everyone leaves for their Summer holidays and, as always, the end of the academic year has been characterised by much celebration in our final Celebration Worship, prayers together in our final Mass and Holy Communion and great excitement across the College as students look forward to the weeks ahead. Whilst never wishing to detract from the joy that the prospect of the holiday brings to the vast majority of students and staff, I also know that you will remember in prayer those for whom the holidays are not always the wonderful experience that most of us are blessed to enjoy. It remains only for me to thank everyone for yet another successful year in the life of Christ the King College. Students and staff look at me with utter disbelief when I say that I will miss them during the holidays and I look forward to September. However, it is actually true! Have a wonderful summer. God bless, Pat Goodhead
Sixth Form Student Leadership Team
In addition to appointing new staff to our College, I am delighted to be able to announce that we have been busy interviewing and appointing the next Student Leadership Team from the Sixth Form. The standard of applications was outstanding, the quality of the interviews was exceptional and the plans that these wonderful young people shared for the development of the College next year were quite amazing; it is going to be quite a year next year! I am delighted to report that the Student Leadership Team for 2015-2016 will be:
Head Girl: Hanna Dean
Head Boy: Charlie Goodstien-Oliver
Deputy Head Girl: Alice Tongue
Deputy Head Boy: Tom Measey
Assistant Head Girls: Louise Ryan and Katie Mackenzie
Assistant Head Boys: Dabeoc Stanley and Conrad Lewandowski
It simply remains for me to say that, as is the custom at Christ the King College, we will continue to strive and challenge our students next week (until the bell sounds for the start of the summer holidays). With the exception of our Celebration Worship taking place on Thursday, our whole College Mass and Communion which takes place on Friday morning and an opportunity on Friday afternoon to spend time with Form Tutors (and ensuring that lockers are cleared and cleaned before the six week break) we will run a normal College week. College will close at 3:40pm next Friday
