Message from the Headteacher

This has been a very short term in which much has been achieved.  Our Year 11, 12 & 13 students are now in their final preparations of their examinations.  A number of our students will be in school over Easter to work with their teachers.  They will be involved in a lot of hard work over the next few weeks.  We wish them all the very best.  They have all worked hard and deserve to do extremely well.

This week has been a very special week in the school’s history with the appointment of our new Headteacher.  The Chair of Governors will be writing to you early next term with further details.  

As we grow in numbers we are virtually fully staffed for September.  I will write to you in our next newsletter with all these excellent appointments.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Becky Evans and Dusty Evans, Chair and Vice Chair of the JMA, both of whom have stepped down from their roles.  Their work has been invaluable to our school and they will be very hard acts to follow.  Jane Enticott has taken on Chairing the JMA from now and Fiona Van Galen will take on the role of Vice Chair.  Our JMA supports our Welsh Farm and raises a tremendous amount of money - we are always looking for new recruits to join JMA.

My thanks too for the staff and students involved in so many events this term.  Comic Relief Day organised by or senior students raised close to a thousand pounds.  Last week several local politicians visited the school and had an intense grilling from our Press Team.  My thanks to Mrs Williams and the Year 9 Press team.   

If you look at our latest newsletter you will see that numerous sporting events have taken place this term across all year groups.  It is wonderful to see that John Mason School continues to take part in so many sports… and invariably wins.

Congratulations to all our athletes who have taken part and my thanks to our parents and teacher who have supported at the numerous matches.

In today’s end of term assembly we recognised the 37 years of service by Mrs Sue Hook.  We will be making a presentation to her later in the year.  Anyone wishing to make a contribution should forward these to the Finance Office.  

We look forward to seeing our students return on Monday 13th April at 8.30am.  For now, I would like to take the opportunity to wish you and your families a safe and peaceful holiday.

With best wishes


Ms Di Mashiter
