Important Dates For This Half Term

Dear Parent/Carer
As the end of a very short half term approaches, our thoughts and very best wishes are with all of our students currently involved in preparing for important examinations.  Many have already started sitting their exams and we would like to thank you for the invaluable support that you provide at this important time.
One of the changes that have taken place this half term is our new catering provider Caterlink replacing Newport Catering who ceased to exist as an organisation at Easter. Caterlink were selected by our students and governors following a rigorous selection process that involved a number of other national catering companies.
For those of you that have not seen any of Caterlink’s promotional literature – they are the UK’s leading contract caterer in education providing more than 250,000 meals a week to schools and colleges.  More importantly they adopt a ‘fresh food’ policy in schools that has earned them a reputation for quality and innovation.  We are looking forward to forging a strong partnership with Caterlink to ensure that our students enjoy the best food provision in the city.
