Christmas Jumper day at XP & XP East

On Thursday 8th December, XP & XP East will be taking part in Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.

We’re asking pupils to donate £1 (or however much they can give), to support children in the UK and around the world.

By taking part we’ll be helping kids who don’t have the basics they need to survive – like food, school or medicine.  

To make donating easier and safer this year we’ve set up our own Just Giving page. You can donate directly here. Or scan the QR code below (you can bring £1 cash in on the day – that’s fine)

We’d really appreciate your support to make Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day a success.

Together, we can make the world better with a sweater.

C24 Presentation Evening

We had an amazing night presenting C24 with their GCSE certificates and celebrating their achievements one last time. Extra congratulations to those students who received an Exceptional Contribution award (see full list in the slides above), although it’s worth saying that you *all* deserve an award for showing resilience, determination and commitment to learning throughout your time with us – especially during lockdown.

Special mentions must go to Lewis D (XPE) and Eleanor D (XP) who were given the Exceptional GCSE Results Award. Absolutely amazing results and very well deserved. We are so excited to see what the future holds for you both!

If you were unable to attend, certificates will be available for collection from Tuesday 6th December from your school office. We are unable to post these to you as they must be signed for. Please let us know in advance if you would like to collect your Art Portfolio at the same time and we’ll have this ready for you.

Important notice to all BTEC Sport/Music/Engineering Students: your certificates are also available for collection (apologies to those who came to the presentation evening… you’ve got to come back again!)

Keep in touch, C24. Your XP/XPE journey may be over, but we will be Forever Crew.

Brilliant Badminton

Last week we hosted De Warenne School at XP for the opening round of KS4 badminton fixtures. Most of the students who have been attending the after school badminton club represented the school in what was for many the first time in a sporting event.

They played brilliant and we are all so proud of them.

We look forward to host future fixtures and seeing a great turnout at our enrichment clubs

Well done to everyone!!

Farewell Breakfast

Last week we said farewell to one of our Crew members. A great chance to reminisce on our time together and see them off in style. We had an amazing crew session and a lovely breakfast.

It is safe to say there is a great big hole left in crew and they will be missed very much. We wish them all the best for the future and academic success of course, keep in touch!
