TIMETABLE - WEEK B (22/09/2014)

HEADTEACHER'S BLOG - 16th SEPTEMBER 2014

What a wonderful start to term.  We have had the best start ever, after a summer of celebrating massive improvements in results at both GCSE and A Level.  I wrote to families last Friday to set out some of these successes and my press release can be found on this website.

A fantastic start from students  -  I have been amazed by the focus and determination the students have shown in their first fortnight back at school. Year 7 are now part of the family and teachers have praised them for their immaculate behaviour and the enjoyment they have shown in lessons.  The induction day for Year 7 and 12 was a big success with students (and some staff) ending the giant inflatable assault course.

In all year groups we have seen some superb learning and have had lots of encouraging comments from students about their lessons.  Year 11 in particular have shown that they are ready for the challenge.  I have personally interviewed a number of Year 11 students this week with Deputy Headteacher Mr Roberts.  We will be speaking to all Year 11 students over the course of this half term. Year 11 students have been particularly positive about the fabulous teachers they have this year. 

The new Sixth Form students have made a strong start as leaders of learning around the school and within Vertical Tutoring.  I look forward to seeing the impact of the work of the newly formed Student Leadership Team.

Building a culture of success  -  This year our key focus will be building a culture of success through rewarding students for the things they do each lesson each day.  Our students are amazing and we we will be focusing on the vast majority of students who deserve to be rewarded.  Miss Mainwaring, Assistant Headteacher, will be leading on this area.

House Champions 2013/14....Greville  -  In a dramatic comeback from last year's competition Greville House have ousted the reigning champions Dudley, who came a close second having won back to back titles.  Greville, who won the most points for charity as well as scoring highly in all the other categories should be very proud of their efforts.  Their name will go on the House shield and the students will enjoy an early buffet lunch.  This year we will be using our new reward system to generate more house points so let the games begin...

Year 11 Celebration Evening  -  On Thursday 11th September, we hosted a very special evening. Mr Roberts, myself and other staff hosted an evening for those Year 11 students who had been nominated by their teachers at the end of Year 10 for outstanding academic performance or attitude to learning.  It made me very proud to listen to the citations for each child as this is the first year group who I have seen all the way through; we began the school together so they are a special year group to me and these were very special young people who were given awards.  Thank you to Mr Roberts for organising and for Mrs Robinson, Miss Deely, Mrs Dillon and Mrs Dray for helping. Thank you to our roving photographer Miss Brownett.  A very special thank you to Isabelle Smith and Ashlin Pugh who sang beautifully. I am sure we will see them on stage soon.

Open Morning and Evening  -  As I write we are looking forward to opening our doors to welcome prospective parents and their children to our open morning and evening. This is a very exciting occasion where students and staff look forward to showcasing what we do, both through lessons during the day and in our open evening where every area of the school will be open and there will be activities in all subjects.  Tours start at either 9am or 10am in the morning, with a chance to me and members of my senior team.  The evening begins at 6pm. I will be talking about the school at 6.15pm and 7.15pm.

If you are a prospective parent reading this then the best way to get a feel for a school is to see it in action.  You are welcome to come and look around the school, and go into any lessons, whenever you like.  Please just contact Mrs Barnes who is our Transition Manager. I would love to meet you.
