Summer is nearly here and the time is approaching for us to think about keeping cool and comfortable. In order to help students and parents we would like to clarify the situation regarding summer uniform this year at the college by communicating the following points:
- Summer uniform should only be worn after May half term, as stated in the student planner.
- The decision to discontinue polo shorts as summer uniform was communicated to our uniform supplier last year, but over recent days we have become aware of some miscommunication over this issue. As a response to this, we have decided to let students wear polo shirts if they have them for term 6 this year – they must be the school issue ones.
During hot weather, students can remove blazers and wear short sleeved shirts, and in very hot conditions ties can also be removed – jumpers are always optional as long as a blazer is brought to school. In the event of hot weather prior to term 6, all staff will advise students about removing blazers and ties as appropriate.
We will be having a Work Experience evening for all Year 10 students and parents/carers. This is a really important evening which will give you all vital information on how Work Experience takes place. What Work Experience is all about. Why students need to do Work Experience. The benefits of Work experience.
Forms will also be distributed that need to be completed and signed by parents and students before a student is allowed to do Work Experience.
Please do come along to a very informative evening.
Careers and Exams Manager
Please be aware that Thursday February 22nd at 5.30pm for a presentation at 6pm is the school’s annual Y9 Option briefing in the dining hall. A letter will be sent out about this as soon as possible.
We will also be publishing our options booklets which should be available before the meeting with some spare copies at the meeting.
Our new breakfast club started after the Christmas break.
From January 2018 we will be open from 07:45 until the registration bell at 08:30 in the Dining Room. We will be providing a full fresh breakfast service from the Kitchen it doesn’t matter if you prefer porridge, cereals, fruit or a bacon butty we will have it ready for you.
Please contact the school for more details and a brochure.
Payment for breakfast will be via Parentpay, if you do not yet have an account please contact your child’s tutor for an activation letter.
Pupils in Y9 should today receive notification of the results of their option choices. We have managed to accommodate 82% of the cohort with all of their 4 choices and all students are able to study 3 out of their 4 choices.
Letters today identify which students will need to make another choice and what we suggest may be a good fit. We have taken into consideration the latest grade sweep and the attitudes to learning in each of the subjects.
Thank you to the great number of Y9 parents who attended the options evening.
Some parents asked for an electronic copy of the options booklet to be made available and we have now uploaded this to the parents section of our website.
Remember, options forms need to be returned to us by the 23rd March.

CCC Student at Morrisons
This term Year 9 Cope students decided they wanted to help the elderly at Christmas. However they decided that it should be a joint project that involved the local community. With this in mind they wrote letters to Morrisons, Asda and Aldi.
Not only did Morrisons reply to the letter but they donated a whole trolley of food to the student’s charity. The contents of the trolley included: canned food; packets of biscuits; dried rice and pasta, hot chocolate and tea bags.
The Cope students would like this opportunity to thank Morrisons for their generosity and help with this project.
We have also been contacted by Asda who have kindly offered to donate some food after the 1st of December.
