Head’s Newsletter – 26th May 2023

Dear parents and carers

We have had a super end to the half term, and I couldn’t be prouder of the students and staff for their work and accomplishments over the last half term and hope everyone enjoys a well-deserved break!



Sun Safety

As the weather starts to get warmer, please remind students to bring water bottles to school with them every day. We have water cooler fountains located around the school site for bottles to be refilled during the day, and as a school aiming for our Eco Schools green flag accreditation, we are keen to cut down on single use plastic waste. During particularly hot periods it is recommended that students consider some sun protection for break and lunchtime. Sun hats may be brought to school but are not permitted to be worn in buildings or during lessons.

PE Updates

Mr Bennett writes “Wollaston School PE and athletic teams have been in action and performing really well in the track and field events.

The Year 8 , Year 9 and Year 10 students went over to Oundle School for the District Championships and were a real credit to the school in their engagement and participation; as well as their individual performances.

 A total of 17 athletes were placed well in their events and have therefore been invited to the next stages and the County Championships at the start of June.

The U15 Boys were 2nd as a team. The U15 Girls were joint 1st. The U17 Boys were placed 2nd to a very strong group from Oundle School. However, the U17 Wollaston girls won by a considerable margin winning many of their events in the track and field. 

 On Thursday afternoon the Year 7 athletes had their local district and schools’ competition, and the girls were overall winners. The Girls Year 7 relay team in particular was a superb race and Wollaston came a very good 1st place. The boys were joint 2nd overall and had some very good races on the track. Some excellent field events and throws also.

 We have had a brilliant half term of sport at Wollaston School and we wish to congratulate all the students who played and ran so well for the school and the successes they had along the way.

Well done to the netball district winning teams and well done to the Year 10 Boys County Rugby Champions.

 Have a great half term and we look forwards to more sport and matches in the final summer term.”


Best wishes
