It has been a really busy week after half term, with lots of examples of fantastic work. It was great on Thursday to meet so many parents at Parents’ Evening; please feel free to stop me for a chat when you see me at any of the Parents’ Evenings, - I always really enjoy meeting new parents and parents who have had several children through school who I have seen for the last 14 years!!

Mrs Cole told me that Molly Rigby in 9M produced excellent work about her great grandad's involvement in WW1. The class are studying the war at the moment in their history lessons and over half term she produced this work, not as a piece of homework, just to show her genuine interest and engagement with the topic. Fantastic work Molly!

Historians of the Week: Mrs Cole's - Lucinda Sykes - 10S2, for excellent revision for a factual test on the development of the Nazi Party. Mr Linton's - Estelle Moss - 10B2 for excellent revision for a factual test on the Munich Putsch and Mr Hill's - Molly Grey - 8W for excellent effort in an assessment on Queen Elizabeth I.

Mr Reardon told me that Year 9 have made a good start to our second half term, having picked up over 550 achievement points collectively. An individual congratulations goes to Zoe Hilton who tops the leader board for the second time this year. Keep up the hard work, Zoe! A and O forms are leading by example so far this term, as both have perfect punctuality for the week. Well done!

Mrs Outterside told me that Year 11 have received a staggering number of achievement points this week: 267 in total, congratulations! In 1st place is S1 with 32, in 2nd place is L2 with 30 and in 3rd place is A1 with 25. Pippa Taylor leads the individual pupil leader board with 8 points, Emily Barber and Liam Lau are in joint 2nd place with 6 points and in joint 3rd place are Leigh Arrowsmith, Amalea Grundy, and Joanna Smith. Well done to all pupils! Congratulations to L2 with the highest attendance of the week, 99.44%! Congratulations to S2 with the lowest number of behaviour points and A2 with the lowest number of lates.

The following pupils have been nominated for the leavers’ prize draw based on their effort, attainment and behaviour this week. Congratulations to all pupils.

Several pupils have been actively involved in volleyball for most of their school life. They have been fantastic ambassadors for the school at local, regional and in some cases, national level. Their outstanding attitude and application has been noted by other teachers and coaches. A huge thank-you and congratulations from Mr Keating.
