There are many contributing factors to student achievement and success. One very important ingredient is helping students develop resilience, and self-motivation in order for them to fully engage in their learning with the desire to overcome any difficulties and tackle challenge with confidence. This was the theme of my assembly last week.

Nine very real examples of students who demonstrated those qualities in abundance are the year 11 students who embarked on a four week expedition to Borneo in July. These students successfully raised all of the necessary funding for the trip whilst studying for their GCSEs. This was the fourth expedition Ernulf students have taken part in with the aim to make a difference in other peoples lives. In Borneo, the students worked in a primary school, helped to construct new buildings both in the Sabah province and on the island of Mantanani and were involved with conservation work on the beaches and in the rainforest.

The students are to be commended and our thanks to Mr. Truett for his organisational role with the expedition and for accompanying the students. Thank you also to parents/carers and those who supported the students with their fundraising.

It was a delight to see so many parents/carers attending the year 10 and year 11 information evening. We know that working together in partnership will ensure that our students have the best chance of succeeding with their courses and their future educational journey.
