Thank you for visiting our website which we hope will give you a flavour of our school.
This term has been incredibly busy with a whole range of events and activities as well as the continued hard work in the classroom. We were delighted by the recent Ofsted Monitoring visit report which recognises the progress our students are making and we will continue to do our very best to ensure that all students maximise their potential at our school. Please click the Ofsted link to read it.
On 28th November we celebrated the success of last year’s students at our Presentation Evening. It was a lovely event and we wish the class of 2013 the very best of luck for the future. Our special guest was former Wentworth High School student Hayley Scanlon. Hayley is now a successful singer but she told the students that this is not as glamorous as they might think and that she also has a “day job” for which she needed all her qualifications. Her message resonated with many of our students as she urged them to chase their dreams but always have a fallback plan.
Year 11 mock exams start soon ( Timetable Here )and I know that they will be highly motivated and raring to go after being addressed by Steve Head a former teacher turned professional speaker who has written books on self motivation and how to succeed.
We are encouraging all out students to get fit and healthy with the Sky Sports Challenge (click Here to view).
A group of students who have been involved in the Insanity exercise regime have been trained up to be personal trainers and they have teamed up with members of staff who are starting their training sessions next week. This includes me as apparently there were bonus points available for the person who persuaded me to participate – Tom Stott you have a very big challenge on your hands!!
This term we have participated in the Salford Anti Bullying Conference, Children’s Take Over Day, Exceeding Expectations, Key 103 Apprenticeship Bus, Teens and Toddlers Programme, CBBC Trip to Media City, Year 9 had a science workshop delivered by Manchester University, Firefly run by the Fire Service and the Engaging Secondary Schools Project to name but a few.....We also welcomed our Patron of Reading who delivered a presentation to all Year 7 followed by workshops for a large number of students. Philip Caveney will be working with the school throughout the year so all students will have the chance to work with a published author.
We have also raised funds for the Harvest Appeal, the Poppy Appeal, Children in Need and we have a Close Knit event coming soon – wear your Christmas jumper to support children of adoption.
On 25th November we also held an information evening for all parents based around what their child will be studying in English and mathematics at each key stage and how they can help their child to succeed.
Further details of this event and the information provided can be found on the website (Here).
As always if prospective students and their carers wish to visit the school you are very welcome to make an appointment to see us during the school day.
