We have had a very busy start to this half term. Year 11 have started their GCSE exams and I know we all wish them well over the next few weeks. As a year group and as individuals, they have continued to impress both in their attitude to learning and as ambassadors for the school. They have been excellent role models for our younger students in terms of how they conduct themselves, how they value learning and their aspirations to achieve success in the future.
Some of our students have recently been competing in local Rotary competitions for Photography and Creative Writing. Congratulations to all of the students who took part and I am delighted to write that our students took 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in both competitions.
Over the May Bank Holiday weekend our netball teams attended a residential break. They played well in their netball games and enjoyed many other activities throughout the three days, as always their behaviour was exemplary.
During the same weekend Year 9 students participated in their first practise expedition for their D of E. They all did well and coped with the unseasonably hot weather. They will now be confident about tackling their expedition in July.
Finally, Year 7 students spent the week learning about different careers as part of CEIAG (Careers Education Information Advice and Guidance). Our thanks to employees from Laing O’Rourke and RWE Generations who worked with students during the week.
