End of Exam Season

books1I know that many parents and carers will have bought text books and revision guides for many subjects over the last year and I am writing to ask if you would consider donating any which your child no longer needs. This would be very much appreciated so that other students can benefit from using them. Actions such as these really help with the challenging financial situations all schools find themselves in and for many, purchasing new textbooks and revision guides has become an unaffordable luxury. If you are able to help then please could I ask you to leave any donations at Reception before the end of the school year? Mrs Cowlin (Assistant Headteacher)

Office 365 For Education

o365We are pleased to announce that we have now implemented Office 365 for Education for all students in Years 7 to 10. Our O365 service allows those students to download the full desktop version of Office to up to 5 home computers completely free of charge.

Students will need to log in to this website with their school email address and their normal network password. Download instructions are available here.

If students have any queries they should come and see the technicians in the ICT Support office at school.

Please note that whilst Year 11 do not have access (they are leaving us shortly and as the download is linked to their school account, Office would expire after 30 days), Microsoft have made O365 free to all educational establishments, so most ex-students should be able to sign up at college.

The Fifty-Five

55Fifty-Five ‘Old Boys’ of Lewes County Grammar School for Boys died on active service in the Second World War in theatres of conflict all around the globe. Their monument is the impressive Memorial Chapel in the grounds of Priory School, built in 1960 and believed to be the only officially sanctioned war memorial in any state school in Britain. The book, ‘The Fifty-Five: A Story Set in Stone’ was launched on the night of Monday 12th March following a fascinating words and images presentation to the Lewes History Group evoking a world long gone, but one that must never be forgotten. The book, written by local author, David Arnold can be purchased via this website and paid for via PayPal.
