Dear Families,

This week was the last formal GCSE exam.  Well done to all Year11 students.  They have worked hard to get here and can finally unwind; the rigours of revision and exam prep are now behind them.  Like us, I am sure you are looking forward to the Prom, next Thursday.

Yr10 students are now the senior class and I am proud of how well they are   transitioning into this role.  All Year10 students went to a College taster day to experience a flavour of their Post-16 life.  Whilst off site all our students demonstrated the school values of kindness, respect and determination, well done, Yr10! We will continue to invite Sixth Form Colleges and encourage conversations regarding future options, as they prepare for the next steps in their educational journey.  Career interviews will also start soon too.  These are designed to show the most effective ways of exploring options available for students’ choice, highlights criteria required and thereby reduce anxiety about the future.

Mr. Ellis and the STEM team took 12 Yr7 students to the Roll Royce base for an exciting opportunity for our budding engineers.  Students built their model cars, adding motors and microbits to ensure desired navigation.  They showed impressive skills when set the challenge, Well done!  Thank you to Rolls Royce for supporting our talented young people; exposing them to the world of mechanics as well as the dare to dream programme.

Miss. Quinn and the Food Technology team celebrated a healthy eating week.  Students made healthy snacks at school and a variety of free tasters were offered at break/lunch, every day of the week, to all the community.  Students and staff join me in thanking Miss. Quinn and her team for their hard work and creativity.

From Healthy week to our Global Alliance; the school welcomed Korean teachers for a week, earlier this half term.  Thank you to our International Co-ordinator, Miss Patrascu and Head of Languages, Mrs. Reidmüller and the  team for arranging this.  It is an opportunity for our students to widen their experience of the world/society we will live in, gain an insight into the diversities and similarities in the lives of young people.

Thank you to parents who are making the time to contact me; your time and support is truly valued on all matters.  Please continue to email/phone or make an appointment to meet face to face.   I would like to remind you that Friday 28 June is an INSET day.  The school will remain closed for students.  Hope the weather allows all students to enjoy a long weekend.

Kind regards

Mrs Sharma
