Best in RCT
Owen Emson-Moore has worked extremely hard this term on mastering the use of Microsoft Office – Word, as part of the Microsoft Academy qualification he is studying.
His exam result put him in the top 30 pupils in RCT and he was invited to Microsoft UK Headquarters in Reading. Here he was given the opportunity to tour the facilities, speak to interns about the career opportunities available and see some of the new products soon to be released.
The afternoon was spent taking part in the RCT Microsoft Office Specialist Championships where he sat the Word exam with pupils from other schools in RCT. Owen produced an outstanding result and was awarded first place as the highest scorer for the exam. He received a Nokia phone and his result has put him in a very strong place to be included in the UK Championships later this academic year where the prize is a trip to the USA.

As you are aware, we have made a number of improvements to our security over the summer, which will result in a safer environment for your child to be educated. The main features are automatic gates at the front of the school, and centrally controlled internal doors.
We understand that the automatic gates may prove a slight inconvenience when visiting the school, however I am sure you would agree that this is a price worth paying in terms of the improved environment. Parental letter informing about security gates etc
