Message from the Head Teacher - September 2019

September 9, 2019

 

 

 

“What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”

Mark 4:30-32

 

 

It has been a fantastic start to the term at Archbishop Ilsley Catholic School. On Tuesday we welcomed our new cohort of Y7 students and on Thursday the rest of the school returned.

 

We have had a very successful summer in terms of our results at Post 16 and GCSE and I am delighted with the achievements of our students. It’s wonderful to see so many of our Y13 students going on to university and we have had a large number of Y11 students return for our sixth form. We wish all of our leavers the very best for their futures.

 

 

 

Over the last few days we have been carrying out rigorous checks on standards of uniform. We are pleased to report that the students look immaculate and I want to thank you as parents for supporting us in upholding our high expectations. A full copy of the uniform policy is on the school website but please call us if you have any questions.

 

Although our main function is to be a school, at Archbishop Ilsley Catholic School we are a family. Your child is part of our family and we strive to deliver an excellent education for all, both academically and spiritually. As part of the St Teresa of Calcutta MAC, our family has expanded and we are enjoying working with the other schools in our new family.

 

Your children are the seeds referred to in Mark’s Gospel. Over the years they spend with us, we watch them grow and flourish into the young adults who will shape the future of our world. It is tremendous privilege to serve your children and we look forward to sharing their success with you over the next academic year and beyond.

 

God Bless

Helen Burrows
