Dear Parents and Carers
We would like to welcome you to the new College year at Minsthorpe Community College and hope you and your families have had an enjoyable summer.
We are looking forward to seeing the students again next week at the following times:
- Year 7 arrive at 8.25am on Wednesday 4th September.
- Year 8 – 11 arrive at Snack Break 1 on Wednesday 4th September. (Students are asked not to arrive on site until 10.25am)
- Year 12 & 13 sign in and collect timetables from Post 16 Common Room at 8.25am on Thursday 5th September.
We know you will join us in congratulating our Post 16 and Year 11 students on their great ‘A’ Level, Vocational and GCSE results this summer. We feel very proud of their achievements and wish them well as they progress onto the next stage of their education. We are delighted that so many of last year’s Year 11 students have chosen to return to Minsthorpe Post 16. Many young people will be starting at university, whilst others are beginning apprenticeships or entering the world of employment. Exciting times!
We would like to thank the parents, carers and staff who have supported students during the challenges of their examinations and indeed throughout their five/seven years at the College. Excellent outcomes are only achieved through an enormous team effort as we state in our new vision and mission statements for the College:
Minsthorpe Community College: A place where everyone plays a part in strengthening our learning community through motivation, commitment and care. At Minsthorpe, we value the contribution our Caring parent body makes to their child’s education, as we work together to motivate and support each student in reaching their full potential. We want parents and carers to work with us in ensuring their child is safe and happy. We expect the full commitment of parents and carers in ensuring their child attends regularly and on time; completes home learning; wears the correct uniform; is fully equipped and ready to learn and behave the Minsthorpe Way.
Last year was a memorable year for the College as it reached its 50th birthday. As you read in the first edition of our newsletter ‘Team Minsthorpe’, our students were involved in many fantastic educational opportunities and we know that the coming year will be equally exciting. We look forward to beginning the term as Joint Principals, to welcoming you to the College and to working together to ensure that your child’s time at Minsthorpe Community College is the best it can be.
