I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to you and the other members of staff who accompanied the children on the Ardres trip.
My daughter had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment of what sounds like a well organised and fun week of activities.
She returned home looking healthy and happy and full of news about her week away.

2015-16 has proven to be another amazing year for Thurston Community College! The pace of activity has certainly not slowed down as the end of term approaches. On the contrary, we are finishing the year on a resounding crescendo of student endeavour and success!
Yesterday saw our annual Sports Day, where students from Years 7-10 at the Thurston Campus and Year 12 at Thurston Sixth: Beyton Campus, were able to take part in a vast array of events; some serious, some of which were fun, but all providing opportunity for healthy competition, enjoyment and success. There were some amazing individual performances, but the greatest achievement of all was seeing our students working collaboratively, organising and supporting each other in victory and defeat.
The Enterprise Club Summer Fair took place earlier this week, where Key Stage 3 Enterprise students sold their end creations, having worked hard over recent months to develop their imaginative and entrepreneurial business ideas.
I am so immensely proud of all that our students have achieved this year in the classroom, during enrichment activities and through the positive contributions they have made to the College and to our wider community. Congratulations to you all.
As the academic year draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to thank my team of dedicated staff, whose commitment, hard work and skilful ability to engage with and inspire young people, ensure every day that Thurston students are safe, happy and supported to be successful.
In the words of one parent who has written to me this week, having supported her three children throughout their time at Thurston Community College (her eldest started in 2005 and her youngest left Thurston Sixth this summer):
“Thank you so much for all you have done for our family! We have been impressed with and proud of all their academic achievements and are very grateful for all the wonderful enrichment opportunities they have benefited from over the years. Between them, they have visited at least eleven different countries and have enjoyed countless other valuable experiences provided by the hardworking and dedicated staff of the school. Most important of all, my three children were all happy and felt safe at Thurston and have good memories of their school days.”
Thank you, parents and carers, for your ongoing support, without which the impact of our efforts would be diminished. I wish you and your families a wonderful summer break.
