We welcomed almost 500 primary school children to Pate’s this week for their own special performance of The Wizard of Oz. They had a great time and, thanks to the generosity of the Parents’ Association, everyone was given a small bag of sweets during the interval. It is terrific to kick off the show with a packed audience of excited children and just delightful to see their response to it all. I was very proud of our students, who provided the warmest of welcomes and a thoroughly entertaining performance. If you have tickets for the Wizard of Oz this weekend you are in for a treat!  The show is being filmed by our own student tech crew and DVDs will cost £10 (proceeds to school tech.).  The DVDs can be ordered on show nights or by following this link.  They will be available from 8th December in plenty of time for Christmas.

Autumnconcert14

Last night’s Autumn Concert was amazing from the start with Second Orchestra performing 'Money Money Money'; the enthusiasm of the Y8 boys choir singing 'Mambo Italiano' was something to behold, as was the Big Band finale with Beth Griffin singing 'Feeling Good'. Suffice is to say that we were all feeling very good by the end!  Well over 200 students took part in the concert involving every genre of music and I believe there could not be a better evening’s entertainment to be had from any stage. My huge thanks to Ms Lane and her department, including the peripatetic teachers who were involved. We are currently raising money to replace one of our practice pianos in the Music Department. Anyone who has attended any of our concerts or shows will appreciate the dedication that students and staff put in; it is a great shame that not all of our resources are able to adequately support them in their efforts. If you are able make a donation towards this you can be sure we will be extremely grateful. Please click here for further details.

Today we were delighted to welcome Julie Girling, Conservative MEP for the South West & Gibraltar, who gave a fascinating talk to our Sixth Form Politics students on the workings of the EU and Conservative party policy. I am delighted that, by the end of term and in the run up to the general election, we will have hosted a mix of political speakers and ideals. My thanks to staff for organising these opportunities.

Oscilloscopes1

I was delighted to welcome Helen Mardell and Greg Howard (Pate’s parents), representing Comspace Limited – technical consultants in cellular and mobile satcoms, into school today to thank them for the company’s donation of £2000 to the Annual Fund, in particular to enable us to purchase some of the required oscilloscopes. Students were on hand to demonstrate the new equipment and our student photographers Allie Ganz and Kevin Beeson captured the occasion. It was a wonderful opportunity for me, the physics staff and some of our students to be able to demonstrate the real need for these items of equipment and the benefits they bring. We are very grateful to Comspace for its donation and the resulting new oscilloscopes. I would like to add my thanks to all those supporting the Annual Fund and hope that we will be able to purchase the remaining oscilloscopes shortly after half term. We still have many more items on our list of goals though, so please consider supporting the fund if you haven’t already done so.

I would like to express my thanks to those who are already supporting the Annual Fund. However, we still have a very long way to go. Funds exist for academies to bid for to improve the condition of school buildings and we have been successful with our recent bids; I’m sure you will agree that our new reception is fabulous. Sadly and, you would be right to think, unacceptably, there isn’t a similar pot of money that we can bid for to provide additional resources! We want to provide the very best for our students but government funding simply isn’t enough to enable us to do this and we currently receive no support from the Pate’s Foundation. We need your help. Small monthly donations from many of you will go a very long way. You can donate online or download a donation form using the buttons below.  Thank you in advance for your support.

What a fabulous House Music competition it was!  I know that the audience were incredulous at the spirit, talent, and sheer quantity of the students involved!  Certainly no one envied our adjudicator, with so many difficult decisions to make! The overall winners were Gloucester - well done and congratulations to them and their Head of House Mrs Oram.  My thanks to all the hundreds of students who took part and Heads of Houses - Mrs Reid, Mrs Pickering and Mr Derbyshire.  It is impossible to appreciate how much time and effort went into the last few weeks, none of which would be possible without the mighty support and creative expertise of Ms Lane and Miss Thorpe.  Thanks also the army of PA volunteers (first time new parents amongst them) who managed to serve over £1700 of refreshments to House Music audiences!   This money, as well as the ticket money, will be reinvested directly in equipment and opportunities for our students and will have a great impact.  Thanks particularly to PA master-planners Claire Fraser and Karen Hope.
