Many thanks, Mr Howe
As another very busy school term draws to a close, I would like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you for your continued support. On 25 February 2013 we finally moved into our fabulous new building and I know that staff have worked extremely hard to ensure that disruption to lessons has been minimised whilst they unpacked and organised their brand new teaching spaces. We have also done our very best to ensure that school has remained open during snowy weather and I would like to extend particular thanks to our site staff, Mr Bowles and Mr Groves who have worked throughout to ensure that pathways have been cleared and the school safe.
We have been proud to host a number of events this term both to showcase our 21st century facilities and also the excellent work done by staff and students. Amongst our visitors have been
Mr Tim Westwood, Assistant Director Wolverhampton Schools, Skills and Learning, a delegation from the Russian State Education Department, The European Director for SMART Technologies, Radio WM – who recorded a broadcast about BSF, and various designers and architects who are looking at how things should be done! We are now looking forward to our Grand Opening which will take place on Thursday, 9 May 2013. We also plan to hold another Open Day for members of the community to look and sample our new facilities. Please look for further announcements on our website: www.wednesfieldhigh.co.uk
Could I also politely remind everyone that our website contains full details of our school uniform. I do appreciate that there may have been some confusion over what, in particular, is acceptable footwear but would like to clarify that trainers or pumps are not permitted and that black, polished shoes are required. All our visitors comment on our students’ smart appearance and it is important that smart footwear is worn as well.
One final piece of good news is that from Thursday, 28 March 2013, our Headteacher Claire Evans returns from maternity leave and I am sure you will all join with me in saying welcome back!
I would like to take the opportunity to wish you and your family a very enjoyable and peaceful Easter and look forward to an equally busy summer term. Just to confirm, students finish school on Thursday, 28 March 2013 at 2.55 pm. Monday, 15 April 2013 is a staff INSET day and students return on Tuesday, 16 April 2013 at 8.40 am.

Spotlight shines on outstanding education professionals
Charna James from Wednesfield High School in Wolverhampton has been selected as a finalist for the 2013 Pearson Teaching Awards. She joins a list of exceptional teachers who are the stars of education this year.
The finalists will receive the results when they are announced by the Pearson Teaching Awards on Thank a Teacher Day, 17 May 2013. They will then be cheered on by pupils, parents and colleagues at school presentations.
Celebrating twelve years of recognition for unsung heroes, the Teaching Awards will focus on finalists – headteachers, teachers, teaching assistants and school teams – from across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Each of the winners will receive a Plato – the Teaching Awards trophy representing excellence in education. Distinctions and commendations will also be presented.
Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson, president of the Teaching Awards said: ‘I am genuinely proud and honoured to be the president of the Teaching Awards. I owe so much of what I’ve done to my fantastic teachers at school and university and it is exciting to join in celebrating what is probably the most important profession of them all.’
