An 11-16 Academy
The main focus in school remains the GCSE exams which Year 11 are very busily engaged with at the moment. It was great to see so many come into school over their half term break for additional revision sessions. Their teachers are making sure that students are well prepared with lots of extra opportunities to revise. We wish them the very best of luck for their remaining exams.
We will be celebrating the five-year journey that Year Eleven have had with us with a special Leavers’ Lunch. During this event we will look back at the incredible range of activities and experiences that we have shared together. It is always lovely to share good memories and to be able to wish our students all the very best for their futures.
With a General Election looming we are keen to engage our students in the democratic process. With this in mind we are holding our own mock election, following a hustings event in which the students heard from, and questioned, our local parliamentary candidates. The questions asked of the candidates were primarily focused on the issues that impact directly upon young people, such as education and student finance.
We also like to engage our students in the business world. We are always delighted to welcome members of the local business community into school, and we have a planned schedule of Employer Assemblies coming up. These will help widen our students’ knowledge of the world of work and business.
I would like to finish this time with some congratulations to those who were nominated to become our new Head Boy and Head Girl. Ten students were nominated by their peers and by the staff. Each was invited to apply by submitting a manifesto, and were then interviewed. We are incredibly proud of each nominee and after a rigorous selection process the following students were confirmed in their new role:
Head Girl – Jayjay Fenwick
Deputy Head Girl – Eve Barnett
Head Boy – James Hayball
Deputy Head Boy – Thomas Grayston
We look forward to their leadership of the student body.
