Report an Absence
NB. Written confirmation of the reason for absence must still accompany the boy upon his return to school.
Induction for new First Years
We have just published an Induction area for parents of new First Year boys starting in September. All new parents are advised to visit this area before their sons start at LRGS.
Boarding at LRGS is 'Outstanding'
Following a rigorous, zero-notice inspection in May 2013, our boarding provision has once again been rated as Outstanding by Ofsted, across all categories. See full story.
Catering at LRGS: menus and prices
Please note there is a newly-updated menu and price list attached (above right). This includes lunch in the Dining Hall and Grab & Go, as well as breakfast club and tuck prices.
Cricket presentation evening
The 2013 Cricket Presentation Evening takes place in the Assembly Hall on Thursday 4 July from 7pm – 10pm. Hot pot supper and bar. Tickets £7 are available from Lee House, City View and Wyresdale House.
The Gregson@Highfield Regeneration project began a few years ago to bring back into community use a derelict facility very close to School, on the corner of Derwent and Quernmore Road. A considerable amount of funds have been raised so that work can start this summer on a new tennis court and a multi-purpose court. Completion of this phase is planned for September at which time the School will be able to use the facilities for tennis and other ball sports.
There are two projects that will help Highfield Regeneration which we would encourage you and your sons to support.
1) Take part in a Cross Bay Walk on Sunday 20 June to help raise enough money to complete phase 1. See attachment above.
2) Parents, please encourage your sons to design a logo for Gregson@Highfield. This will be promoted through the School. Not only will there be a prize for the winner whose design is selected but the design will be displayed on signage and publications. See attachment above.
Wanted: second-hand sports kit
If you have unwanted rugby or cricket kit, please consider donating it to the Friends' shop. New parents are visiting for induction in June and it would be great to have some for sale then. The Friends’ Shop in Bay View Cottages is open during term time on Fridays 3.30 pm – 4.30 pm and Saturdays 10 – 11 am. It will also be open on Friday 30 August 3.30pm–4.30pm, Saturday 31 August 10–11 am and Monday 2 September 3.30pm–4.30pm.

E-safety & pupils
The school has recently implemented several measures to help ensure pupil safety on the internet, including putting a button on the VLE.
It links through to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and pupils and parents can click on this button if they wish to report incidents of online abuse, or fear they are in danger of online abuse. There is a 24-hour response. For more information see their website www.ceop.gov.uk
There is some useful information for young people and parents about online safety on the Think U Know website www.thinkuknow.co.uk
