Welcome to 2016!
Last term was the usual flurry of hard work, both in lessons and within the school and local community. Our fundraising was very successful with collections providing food for local homeless people and our participation in events such as Children in Need and Christmas Jumper Day contributing to national charities.
The History trip to the WW2 Battlefields provided very moving memories for the students who shared these with the rest of the school in our Remembrance Assemblies and this was followed by the visit from Joanna Millan, a Holocaust survivor who spoke to the whole of Year 9 about her life and then spent the afternoon with our Ethics and Philosophy students.The atmosphere in the auditorium was humbling and the respectful and supportive way that Joanna was received by such a large audience was another reminder of what an amazing school this is and how proud we rightly are of our students.
Our Open Evening was exceptionally well attended and early indications are that the school will be completely full with new Year 7 in September and we may even have a waiting list! We continue to push our students hard to maximise their potential in all areas and Year 11 had the first of their mock exam series in December. Although there is still much work to be done many students achieved outstanding results which is very encouraging and is testament to the hard work of both the students and their teachers. More exams in March will ensure they are well prepared for the GCSEs in May.
This term will be very busy with ski holidays, careers fairs, Science conventions to name just a few of the events lined up. We look forward to a busy and successful year. Thank you for your continued support.
