Mr Reardon told me that pupils in Year 8 have been working very hard this week, accumulating over 800 achievement points altogether. A special congratulations goes to 8W who contributed 95 to that total and also recorded no lates this week. It has been a particularly good few days for the girls as they occupy the top five achievement positions. Aimee Styles leads this week with 18 points, with Isobel Banks and Lily Webster in second and third respectively.

Mr Burgess took pupils from his Year 10, Set 1 maths class to visit Winstanley College, to observe a maths talk by Dr Katie Steckles. She first spoke about maths problems, which really engaged our pupils because of the level of challenge. She then went on to speak about the maths behind technology, which again, the pupils found really fascinating. After speaking to the pupils, they gave very good feedback on the event, emphasising how interesting it was. The pupils obviously displayed exemplary behaviour and were, as always, a credit to the school.

Mrs Hollins told me that her Year 8 class have written some superb updated versions of John Cooper Clarke's 'i wanna be yours' (intentional lower case letters!) and extra-special work came from Emily Chesworth, Sam McGrath and Jessica Jones. 

Also, several boys from Mrs Holins' Year 10 class completed a fascinating writing workshop with Phil Wilkinson, sports writer and editor of sport at the Wigan Observer. Their behaviour was impeccable and again, they were a credit to the school.
