Dear Parents, Carers and Friends.

A great evening on Tuesday night as we held our Year 11 Parents’ Consultation Evening in the hall and dining room. At the same time we ran a special Year 7 Meet the Tutor Evening for 7GPN as Miss Pemberton was on the French exchange in Bordeaux last week.


 The atmosphere in the hall was really buzzing with students and parents/carers receiving an update on progress so far and what the next steps are to make sure achievement for each individual student is as high as possible.  It goes without saying (but I will say it anyway) that Year 11 is a vitally important year. Most students realise that the outcomes they get at the end of this academic year will be down to their efforts and attitude: teachers and families can only do so much.  A few students needed tonight as a ‘wake-up call’.  There is still plenty of time to make a huge difference, but they need to start now.  The Year 11 students know staff will do everything they can to help each and every individual and, as long as the young people put in their best efforts, they will all do very well.

Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

Eight students went to Dalby Forest on Wednesday as part of the  Forestry Commission’s 100 years anniversary.   

The students took part in den building, fire lighting and tree planting.  They thoroughly enjoyed the day and got a lot out of the activities which required close cooperation and so developed life-long team-building skills. 

 

The other nice thing is that they were doing something which will leave a legacy for hundreds of years.  People will go to Dalby Forest for generations to come and enjoy the beautiful  trees these young people planted.  Well done to all involved.

P.S.  The Bordeaux exchange returned safely in the early hours of Saturday morning.  All very happy and very tired.
