Race for Life

A huge thank you to all students, staff and parents that joined in either to run, walk or to support and cheer on our participants at the Race for Life. It was a really lovely atmosphere, despite the tricky humidity! We have so far raised over £1000 which is just amazing. House points will be awarded to tutees who participated and supported.

If you would like to contribute to raising our total to a record amount, donations can be made via the Just Giving page here: https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/donate/5cf4a18a-849b-4a6e-9361-326fb8379620/details


Reminders for students

We have reiterated the following points to students in assemblies and we appreciate your support in reinforcing these important messages:

– Students should continue to follow our one-way systems around the school site

– Face masks continue to be highly recommended

– Hoodies and coats should not be worn anywhere inside the school

– PE kit should be brought into school for lessons in their PE kit bag


Covid Tests

Rapid testing is now well-established across all education settings. The guidance is that students should continue to test twice a week reporting negative tests as well as positive results.

Please upload results to https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result and to the relevant school form: Covid Home Testing Results Forms – Malmesbury School. In the event of a positive home test, you should book a confirmatory PCR test by calling 119 or booking online. Please also inform the school.


New Website!

We are excited to announce that our new website has launched! You will hopefully notice improved functionality and easier navigation via a mobile/tablet. We have been working behind the scenes on developing and expanding our content in each sub menu so that our wealth of visitors from parents to prospective applicants can find out the information they need about the school. As always we really value your feedback. If you spot any errors, omissions or opportunities for further improvement please don’t hesitate to contact Jennifer Howe, Assistant Headteacher at jhowe@malmesbury.wilts.sch.uk. We would love some volunteers who are willing to spend an hour or two looking through a section of the website and provide more detailed feedback. If you are interested please do get in touch!


Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (ABAs) have been working hard to improve awareness and tolerance of others so that all students feel safe and happy at Malmesbury School. This term the Year 7s are preparing the Anti-Bullying noticeboards in the Street; one will include the Anti-Bullying Code of Conduct that they designed after their last Diana Awards Training, the other will be our ‘Events’ Board. The Year 8’s are leading on the ‘It’s Good to Talk’ Campaign whilst Year 9 have taken on co-ordinating the Anti-Bullying Online Magazine. In the summer Year 10 and 12 will be doing some research around respect at KS4 and KS5 and look at developing a workshop on this topic for their peers. Anti-bullying Ambassadors will soon be receiving their ABA Badges so you can easily identify them – they will always be happy to talk to any student if need of help and support.


Return From Lockdown Survey

The past 12 months in education have been like no other. Students, parents, teachers and support staff have had to adapt to an ever-changing landscape as almost every aspect of school life was impacted in some way by the fight against the pandemic.

Throughout this time, parent input received via various surveys we have carried out has helped shape our approach. As school is beginning to feel like the place we know and love we are keen to hear your views again. These will enable us to plan effectively for the remained of this year and beyond to ensure that the education we provide to our students is in line with our overarching intent and appropriate to their needs.
