Head's Blog June 2019Posted on 1st Jun 2019
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 supported revision sessions with their teachers, who were so generous with their time. Teachers here certainly go above and beyond to make sure that students are well prepared to succeed in their exams. We wish all of Year 11 the very best of luck for their remaining exams.
As always, there is a lot happening in school this month. The Duke of Edinburgh Expedition was very successful, and was blessed with good weather, a group of Year 10 will soon be visiting Wymondham College to experience some A Level lessons in English and drama and a large group of students will be visiting both Norwich Cathedral and the Sainsbury Centre for art appreciation.
Just before half term, Year 8 were challenged by Camouflaged Learning in conjunction with the RAF to complete a number of challenges. The four students showing the best team work and problem solving skills will be invited to RAF Marham to compete against other schools in the Grand Final next month. Congratulations to all the students for their positive participation during this event, and especially to both the runners-up and the winners.
For the second year running, Stradbroke is hosting a prestigious cycling event. This month the Ovo Women’s Tour is passing the school, and, as we have done in the past, we will be showing our support by lining the route and cheering the cyclists on.
On 20th of this month, on the cricket field behind the Leisure Centre, the ninth annual cricket match between the Stradbroke Vikings and the school will be keenly contested. The school has won on three previous encounters, and the Vikings have lifted the trophy a total of five times, including the last three. We are looking forward to this event, and hope that as many of you as possible come along to spectate and support, and hope that the school can triumph this time.
