Thought of the Week

Your beliefs don’t make you a better person. Your behaviour does.


27th February 2017

Dear Parent,

It was lovely to see all the children back in school this morning after a well-earned rest. I trust that everyone had a good holiday and enjoyed some family time where possible.

Form 6 – Grammar School Places

Our pupils in Form 6 are in the process of gaining their results and offers of places. It is an anxious time for both the pupils but the parents and so far we are getting some great feedback. I will update you once we know more.

Form 5 – Bolton School

On Friday 10th March all Form 5 pupils have been invited to attend a special Branwood / Bolton taster day. They will be collected and taken to Bolton to undertake a variety of activities including Science and a language.

In the evening, from 3.30pm to 4.30pm Dr Mullins will be in school to deliver a presentation especially for parents. This will take place in the hall and all upper school parents are welcome to attend.

Pearson Teacher Awards 2017

The Teaching Awards offers everyone the opportunity to say “thank you”, to the teacher who has helped them most.  Anyone can take part, children, students, parents, grandparents and colleagues can all go online and say thank you.  In return, we will send a thank you card to each and every person or team of people who is thanked. Every “thank you”, then becomes a nomination for a Teaching Award.

If you would like to nominate a teacher or teaching assistant please use the following link,


World Book Day – Thursday 2nd March 2017

We are celebrating World Book Day again this year. Children are invited to attend school dressed as their favourite book character (please remember that some classes have PE on Thursday).

We look forward to talking to the children about their favourite books and characters, and the importance of reading.

Class Photographs – Tuesday 7th March

Just a reminder that we have the photographer in school on the morning of Tuesday 7th March to take class photographs.

After School Dance Club

We are all looking forward to The Lowry dance event at the end of March and I know that the children are really excited.

We are also invited to take part in Reflections Dance Show at The Dance House Theatre in May, so this is a ‘save the date’ notice. The Reflections Dance Show will take place on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th May. Further information will be sent out after The Lowry event so as to avoid confusion.


Have a lovely week!

Kind regards,

Mrs Follett
