Thank you for taking the time to visit this website and welcome to our school.
2014 will be a very important and bitter sweet year in the history of Wentworth High School as we move towards closing our doors in this building and reopening in September in our new school.In February we held a uniform consultation with all our partners regarding the uniform for the new school as the students had suggested some changes to the current colour scheme in order to mark the new beginning.
This half term students in Year 9 will be making some option choices for their future studies.These are crucial decisions and, as always, we will be pleased to see parents individually to discuss the pathways available to students. Year 10 and 8 Parents’ Evenings are this half term – please see the website or your child’s planner for dates and times. We are trialling a new on line booking system which was very well received by other parents so please let us know what you think. The school welcomes feedback and would ask parents to give their views both via the in school questionnaires but also by logging onto Parent View via the link
The results are now available and I am pleased to announce that the new school uniform from September will be black blazers/trousers/skirt with a white shirt and a House tie.
The first group of students visited the site on 26th February and next to visit will be the construction students who have been able to see firsthand exactly how a building progresses from a plan on paper to a structure that is starting to come to life. We will try and get as many students as possible onto the site at some point and will also be asking the builders to come to school and talk to the students about their work. Some of the Year 10 students may be able to complete their work experience on the site; it will be amazing for them to have taken part in the construction of a school which will serve the local community for many years to come.
As always we are fully focussed on ensuring our students are achieving their potential both in the classroom and in the community. Year 11 had their first taste of mock exams in December and the countdown to GCSEs has now started in earnest. They will be sitting their final mocks in March and we look forward to seeing them achieve excellent results.
The Attendance Lottery has now started and the winners are chosen by the randomiser! It is very exciting to watch as the machine starts to type the name of the winner – every student who has perfect attendance and punctuality over each 2 week period has a chance of winning some great prizes. The link between good attendance and high achievement cannot be stressed enough and this will continue to be a focus for the school. In addition, it is always nice to reward students who do the right thing and this too is something we always try to do.
