Headmaster's Bulletin 29th September 2017
After the phenomenal success of the Sixth Form Production - 'Annie Jr', the Cripps Hall Theatre was filled again four times over this week with parents of prospective Year 7 students attending information presentations about the school.
Given our continued success we are also expecting to see a large turn out on Thursday of next week when we hold our Open Evening and current students and staff are hugely looking forward to showing the school in its best possible light. One of the highlights of the tour will no doubt be the Sports Hall which is now in the home straight of a six week refurbishment process which has included a new sprung floor and ventilation system and as such will be sparkling new, resplendent with a central NSB logo, for our visitors to view on Thursday.
The school is a passionate supporter of the work undertaken by Macmillan to support cancer patients and this was demonstrated through two resoundingly successful coffee mornings held this week to raise funds for the charitable organisation. The two events were run by Mrs Topping Shaw and Year 10 respectively and students and staff came in their droves to sample some fantastic baking which would not have been out of place on the Great British Bake Off! Over £175 was raised in the first event and we eagerly await the final total from today's efforts.
Finally I would like to alert readers to our first big music event of the year which is coming up quickly on the rails with 'Hooray for Hollywood' headlining on Tuesday 10th October at 7.00pm in the Cripps Hall Theatre. Spectacular renditions of favourite film scores are promised by our Director of Music, Mr Druker, and given the level of musical talent in the student ranks at NSB I am sure the promise will be richly delivered!
