Headteacher's Message, Friday 19th November 202

I am in Nottingham at the Ormiston Principals Conference today. It has been wonderful to catch up with colleagues and listen to the range of keynote speakers as well as hear Ormiston Academy Trust key messages and the significant role CNS is playing within the Trust.     

On Wednesday I met with the new team of deputy head students from Year 11, Harrison Gee, Viana Muhammed, Rosa Hardy-Brownlie and Abigail Humphreys. The group are focusing their work on student voice and how all students can be heard and felt listened to. I am looking forward to their ideas and leadership of this important part of school life.  Meanwhile, the Year 13 head students are working hard on their legacy projects; this is work they undertake that will leave a lasting impact on CNS. This year the projects are centred on girls PE (Hannah Wilson-Kemsley), PSHE (Charlotte McCallum), Eco-schools (Josh Holloway) and careers education (Bea Harrison). There is excellent work taking place and I look forward to watching this develop over the next few months. All head students contributed to the Year 11 Careers and Employability Day yesterday which was a huge success and thank you to all parents and carers who attended the evening event.   

I hope everyone has a safe and happy weekend.
