Message from the Headteacher

September 2016

Dear Families

I am delighted to be writing to you at the end of the first week of this academic year as the new Headteacher of Sydenham School; what a good start it has been!  The students have come back in good spirits, wanting to learn and clearly keen to do well. I have now met all of the students in Key Stages 3 and 4 in their Year Assemblies to welcome them back and to speak about the high expectations that we have of them in all areas.  We want all of our students to achieve their very best. It has been a real pleasure to walk around the school and see the students engaged in purposeful learning. At lunch and break times it has been very evident that the girls are pleased to be back at school and to be able to catch up with all of their news from the summer holidays!

I would like to thank you for your excellent support as regards the strengthened whole school expectations in relation to uniform and the changed policy on the use of mobile phones. You will be receiving a letter home from me next week explaining some of these changes in more detail along with other useful information. Here is a link to the school website outlining the rules on uniform and mobile phones

I look forward to meeting you in school before too long.  I wish you a good and restful weekend.

Kind regards

Gloria Lowe
