Dear Parents,

I hope you all had a good half term break.  

It has been wonderful seeing all of the students back in school.  Students in Year 11, 12 and 13 have received their mock examination results this week (parents will be receiving a report card next week) and have been discussing these with their subject teachers.  Congratulations to those students that have met or exceeded their expectations and for those that have not, there is still time, with the help and support of the teachers to still make progress before the all-important summer examinations.  

We look forward to welcoming Pre School and Primary School parents into school next week for meetings to discuss your child’s progress; these meetings are so important to discuss where your children are in their learning and the next steps they need to take to develop even further.

Our Year 4 students had a real treat this week!  They have been learning about chocolate in their IPC lessons and had the opportunity to visit the wonderful Crafers Chocolate Factory, here in Tashkent, to learn, first-hand about the process.  Please look at the report and pictures on our Instagram account.    

Have a lovely weekend.

Best regards,

Brian Platts

Principal
