Last term was the usual flurry of hard work, both in lessons and within the school and local community and it is now the final countdown for Year 11 students as the exam season looms. Revision classes were on offer all through the recent holiday with staff and students prepared to go that extra mile to ensure potential is maximised this summer. We are now running breakfast classes, lunchtime sessions and of course after school booster classes for any student who wishes to attend. I would like to thank all of my colleagues who willingly and freely gave of their time during this period. It clearly shows the commitment of the teachers to securing excellent results and boosting students’ confidence.
As well as the hard work in school several colleagues gave up a week of the holiday in order to take a group of students on a ski holiday . A great time was had by all and the students gained in confidence and ability as the days progressed. So much so that some of the students are now better skiers than even are most accomplished member of staff which is fantastic.
We are massively over subscribed for the new Year 7 intake and are looking forward to welcoming Year 6 pupils to the school via our Taster Days in June. We would have liked to be able to offer a place to every parent who wished their child to attend our school and thank all parents for their support. In April we hosted another Super Learning Day for pupils at Monton Green Primary School and this term we will be working with our primary colleagues from several schools to offer lessons in science, technology and the arts using our expertise, resources and state of the art facilities for the benefit of as many students as possible.
This term will be fun filled and action packed as we go from exams for all year groups to special events, activities and visits. As always should you wish to visit us on a normal working day you would be very welcome- contact the school office to book an appointment.
Thank you for your continued support for the school.
Year 7 parents attended an information evening to find out about the EPHS Learning Pathways, here is a link to the presentation.
