Autumn Term 2017

Welcome back to a new academic year! Last year we ended on an amazing high with Fleur De Lys winning the House Cup for the first time in a number of years. This was the result of excellent participation levels across all year groups as well as an enormous amount of House Points amassed across the year. Every single student should feel proud of the contribution they made, but Lily Rayner in year 7 deserves a particular mention as she surpassed the 400 House Point mark and achieved the Headteacher's special recognition award. Sports Day was also very special as the lead was held by a number of Houses throughout the day, but the relays proved decisive and Fleur went on to win for the 8th year in a row! 
 
I would like to welcome all the students back after the summer, but in particular F7CLB who are new to the school and look like they will be a fantastic addition to House dynamics. We have had a lot of change in the tutor team but we have established an excellent and enthusiastic group of tutors who are keen to support and encourage the students in their group. We have also appointed a strong student leadership team who are already setting about their duties with vigour.  There are many clubs, competitions and opportunities to get involved in right from the off so I encourage everyone to get involved in something and enjoy our defence of the House Cup this year!

End of Spring Term 2017

It has been an action-packed Spring Term with excellent levels of participation and success from Fleur de Lys students. A recent highlight was Fleur de Lys winning the Inter-House Human Rights Day which was a huge success. Scarlett Mealing stood out on the day with some thoughtful and insightful comments on world poverty and the refugee crisis. Students in Fleur de Lys with a huge amount of well-deserved house points include: Dulcie Gatehouse, Poppy Legg-Bagg, Eve Appleton-Scott, Tom Crabtree, Abi Shepherd, Thai Chant, Will Stazicker, Lea Devecsery, Sam Devecsery, Daniel Van Zyl, Victoria Crabb, Eva Symonds, Jess Herbert, James Clatworthy Fin Cauldwell, Lily Rayner, Holly Dupon-Jones and Lily Crane, Lucy Best, Alice Best and Bailey Huxter.

Some other student successes this term include Tom Crabtree and Finley Devlin who attended the MUN (Model United Nations) conference in Bath where they represented Greece. Their debating skills were excellent, discussing issues linked to the environment and terrorism. Also, Daniel Van Zyl in Year 8 represented Colfox at Westminster this term. Along with 3 other students, Daniel did a talk to other schools at Westminster on the Edge. An excellent term,fleur de Lys. good luck our Year 11s with your revision and exams.

Children In Need Fundraising Day

Fleur de Lys charity day was a great success. Students from all year groups took part in the army challenge. It was a great event and around 70 students participated in the challenge.  Students were raising money for Children in Need. With the money raised from the army challenge and the charity day stalls at lunchtime, students raised over £440. Well done Fleur de Lys!

Autumn 2016 Half Term Update

Fleur de Lys has successfully made it through their first half term of the year! We welcomed two new tutor groups: F7EW and F7TM. It has been a pleasure getting to know our new students. The students in the new leadership team for Fleur de Lys have been very busy this half term, arranging students, organising events, improving participation, supporting events, delivering assemblies, supporting tutors and much more. Below is a list of the leadership team for this year. F11AL did a brilliant assembly on the importance of sleep: Nyah Cormack, Eve Appleton-Scott, Tom Crabtree, Conan Birkett, Sydney March, Jaydon Brown and Abi Shepherd presented it exceptionally well.

Tug of war was a great success with Fleur de Lys coming second place. A special ‘well done’ goes to the year 11 team who were undefeated! It was a great atmosphere and good to see so many students working in teams together. Cross country was as successful as ever with Fleur de Lys coming first. The Variety Show was brilliant day with lots of creative acts, particularly Molly Gay who sung beautifully and Bailey Huxter and Billy Cornwell for their ‘I’ve Got a Brand New Combine Harvester’ act! Both of these acts made it to the final and Molly made it to second place.

Buddying is going very well – every year 7 student has been allocated a buddy who they meet during tutor time. It is lovely to see cross year group relationships being formed. There are buddies from years 8,9,10 and 11 who are being very supportive.

Tutor groups are now preparing for charity day which is looming. We will be raising money for Children in Need on November 11th.
