Looking ahead to Spark Day

If you’ve visited our website recently you’ll have seen the ‘pop up’ advertising our Spark Night taking place on Thursday 11th July. It’s always a great event I hope to see lots of people there.

However, Spark Night is only half the story. The following day will see Spark Day taking place on the school grounds, a massive event where students work together as form groups to put on stalls, lay on entertainment, take part in fun competitions and generally show their creativity. We’ve run several Spark Days now, both before and after Covid, and I’m really looking forward to this year’s edition. As well as having a good time, Spark Day is all about making money for good causes. We’ll be donating 50% of the proceeds to local charity, and spending the other 50% supporting extra curricular activities within school. But…and this is the crucial thing…Spark Day is a CASHLESS event. Students will be able to spend tokens on the day, bought in advance via School Gateway. All the details on how to order tokens in bundles of £2, £5 and £10 can be seen on this letter here, and I wanted to give families plenty of notice in the hope that everyone has the chance to buy some tokens and take part.

Have a great weekend,

Joe Barker
