End of term letter to parents and carers – July 2018


16th July 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to remind you that the school will close for the summer break on Wednesday, 25th July at 12.30 pm and reception will be staffed until 2.00 pm on that day.  Please make alternative arrangements for your child to get home on the 25th July as school buses will not be running.   There will be no canteen facilities available on the last day but pupils in receipt of free school meals should order a packed lunch via their form tutor as soon as possible.

‘A’ level results day is on Thursday, 16th August followed a week later by GCSE results day on Thursday, 23rd August from 10 am onwards.

During the summer break reception will be staffed each Thursday and Friday (8.00 am – 2.30 pm), should you need to contact the school for any reason. School re-opens for students on Wednesday, 5th September Years 7, 9 and 10 should arrive at 8.55 am (Year 7 should go straight to the hall to meet their Form Tutor) followed by Years 8 and 11 at 11.30 am.  This is to facilitate our induction and transition day.

Our sole, official uniform supplier is Best Sports, 4 Somerset Mews, Loch Street, Runcorn (any other business that is advertising as a supplier to this school is providing misinformation); any items that you need, including ties, are available from them.  Please can you ensure that students arrive back in school in September in full uniform.  If you have any problems obtaining items please contact the school.  Please check the website/newsletter for detailed uniform advice; school shoes for both girls and boys should be black leather, not trainers or anything that could be interpreted as a training shoe and should not have brands/logos on them. Please can you ensure your child’s hairstyle is appropriate for school; again please check the school website for clarification.

I should like to thank you all for your continued support throughout this academic year and look forward to welcoming the students back in September for another successful year at The Heath.


Yours sincerely,

J Jardine
