Message from the Headteacher

It is hard to believe that another school year is over.  It has been a year in which much has been achieved.  We wait with great anticipation the summer examination results which our students have worked so hard for and, for some, we will be saying goodbye and good luck in their further education or employment on leaving John Mason School. At the same time we look forward to seeing our new students arriving in September, with great excitement having met so many students and parents at the open day in the summer term.

​September marks the start of the first full year of John Mason School as an academy. The governing board has worked closely with the Senior Leadership Team to put in place plans and resources to support our vision to be an outstanding school, in close collaboration with the wider partnership of schools and college in Abingdon. We look forward to the opportunities that lie ahead to provide the best possible education for our students.

The first full day of term for students in years 7, 10, 12 and 13 will be Wednesday 3 September 2014 at 8.30am and Thursday 4 September 2014 for years 8, 9 and 11.   

On behalf of the Senior Leadership Team and Governors I wish you all an enjoyable and relaxing summer holiday and look forward to welcoming you all back to John Mason School in September.

Ms Di Mashiter
