Welcome..... back!

Dear students,

As I do every September, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back for the start of the 2016 – 2017 school year. Although I’m sure everyone hates to see their summer vacation come to an end, there is always a certain air of excitement about the start of a new school year. 
We did not even start yet and  here you have some information about our 1st term. Hope you find it useful and it will be all explained the first week we see all each other. Click on upper tags to know more. But anyway... most of you are more or less familiar with new timetables, rooms, books, and teachers.

It is going to be a challenging year for us all (students, parents and teachers), with many different issues to deal with academically or not, in and out the school. 

For that reason we all must make an extra effort in our own responsabilities, being supportive to each other.

- Students, I expect you work hard, study a lot, following school rules as you know them already.

- Parents, I know and appreciate your support and understanding of the hard work of teachers and special conditions we are going through at work. So, I give you all my biggest thank you in advance.
- Teachers (myself) As a teacher I understand the effort all of you (parents) are making to send your kids here and I will do my job as professional as ever to get outstanding and best academic results with every single student I am responsible in every subject, group and lessons I teach.

Ok, enough is enough... time to say bye for now.

I just wish you the best of luck to you all this year.

Mr. Legaz

Summer time

Empty school, corridors in silence and lonely lockers. You just got your reports  a couple of weeks ago.... some of you are still waiting for the IGCSE, AS or A level results but it is time to relax now. Do not forget to revise and read during the summer to keep ourselves busy and active.

Some of these activities were filmed and a brief summary was on air yesterday. If you could not see it, here you have a link. Well done!

Summer letter 2016

Estimados padres y alumnos de “Geography” en year 7A, 7B, 8A, 8B, 8C, 9A, 9B, 9C, 11 y “History” year 7A & 7B :

Como cada año cuando llegan estas fechas, me gusta comunicarme con vosotros para agradecer vuestro apoyo y trabajo desde casa. Este año ha sido otro curso largo y duro en muchos aspectos, y no sólo en lo académico. Agradezco vuestro reconocimiento y apoyo durante todos estos meses.

Espero disfrutéis de un buen verano y merecido descanso. Como cada año, recomiendo se siga en contacto con actividades relacionadas con la lectura y repaso de conceptos aprendidos durante el año. Algunos estudiantes de “year 7, 8 y 9” han recibido un “summer-pack”. En los comentarios de las notas he puesto quien debe hacer el trabajo de verano. Son actividades de repaso para aquellos que han suspendido o han aprobado pero creo que necesitan reforzar la/s asignatura/s de cara al curso que viene. No olvidéis traerlo hecho a la vuelta de vacaciones y entregarlo en la primera semana como “year 8, 9 ó 10”.
Aquí tenéis un enlace con las instrucciones por si han perdido la documentación que he entregado a los alumnos. 


También espero que este verano descansemos y el sol nos recargue a todos de energía para así empezar el nuevo curso con fuerza y energía renovada.

Un abrazo y gracias una vez más.

Félix Legaz


Dear Parents and Students of "Geography" in year 7A, 7B, 8A, 8B, 8C, 9A, 9B, 9C, 11 and "History" year 7A & 7B,

At this stage, like every year, I like to communicate with you to thank you for the support and help provided from home. It has been another long hard year in many ways, not just academically. As usual, I really appreciate your support and understanding during all these months.

I hope you enjoy a great summer and deserved rest. Like every year, I recommend you follow up with reading-related activities and review of concepts learned during the year. Some students in "year 7, 8 and 9" have received a "summer-pack" already, it says on the report the students that must do it. They are summer activities for those who have failed or they are at the edge and I think they need to strengthen their knowledge in my subject/s for next year. Please, do not forget to bring it done in September and hand it in the first week you are back to school again, as year 8, 9 or 10. There is a link here, just in case the students with the summer work have lost their documents and information.

I also hope that this summer we rest a lot and we enjoy the sun, so we will be back to work with renewed strength and energy.

Regards and thank you very much one more time.

Félix Legaz
