Headteacher’s Blog – 5th November 2018

As we approach the end of an excellent half term our students continue to demonstrate a clear commitment to our school values.

Some of our students had the excellent opportunity to attend the Houses of Parliament as part of the Youth Parliament debate with our local MP Jack Dromey.  The students really valued the experience and the opportunity to see first-hand how many of our British Values are nurtured. 

Next half term we are changing our form tutor and assembly routines slightly.  These changes are aimed at further developing the cohesion in tutor groups and making the routines for students simpler to follow.

Finally I would like to thank all involved in our year 11 parent support evening.  It was excellent to see so many parents there focused on finding out how to support students in the lead in to Mock exams and the real exams that will very quickly be upon us in May.  The evening consisted of sessions on a range of subjects with staff giving advice and demonstrations on how to be successful in the up and coming exams.  The feedback from parents was really positive and we know that parents and students now feel more able to approach the exams with key strategies and techniques to enable success.
