I was delighted to see students settle very quickly back to work in their classes yesterday after hopefully a very restful Easter break. Particularly impressive was a Year 8 class who were reflecting on their last piece of work. The students I spoke to were able to explain what they needed to focus on for their next piece of work and how they were going to do this. They were clearly taking responsibility for their own learning. Assemblies this week are about taking responsibility and showing respect in lessons, in school and in the general community.
It was great to see so many Year 11 students attend the revision sessions which ran throughout the Easter holidays and my thanks to the staff who prepared for and ran these. I look forward to seeing a large number of Year 11 and 10 attend the Celebration Evening on Thursday with their parents or carers.
At the end of last term a number of Year 9 and 11 students visited the ‘battlefields’ of World War I. Staff and students find this to be a very busy but thought provoking trip. As usual student behaviour was exemplary.
Also congratulations to the Year 11 students who participated in the D of E Expedition for their Silver Award, an excellent achievement and the first time we have run the silver award. Thank you to Mr Truett and Mrs Thatcher for leading this.
Finally, Year 7 students will be spending next week focusing on different careers in their lessons including meeting with employers. I look forward to seeing parents and carers at the Parents Consultation Evening next Thursday.
