Headteacher's Weekly Message: 25th January 2019

Year 9 Tenner Challenge

Our year 9 students have been involved in the fantastic Tenner Challenge across the last two weeks at lunchtime. The Tenner Challenge is an interactive programme that helps students to develop key employability skills including creativity, resilience and problem solving, whilst using real money to make as much profit as possible from the £10. The girls showed their creativity by making jewellery, canvases and recycled stationary. I was really impressed with their ideas and the students involved really enjoyed the challenge. The money raised will be donated to our school charity United World Schools. Be Proud

Year 11 Practice GCSE Exams

Year 11 have finished an intensive two weeks of Practice GCSE Exams. It’s been nice hearing students talk about feeling proud of the fact they’ve coped so well with the pressure and hearing them talk about feeling confident that they’ve done well. Staff look forward to sharing exam results at the Year 11 Parents Evening on Wednesday 6th February 2019. Work Hard
