TIMETABLE - WEEK   (14/04/2015)

HEADTEACHER'S BLOG - MARCH 2015 

Sensational STEM!
A huge thank you to Ms Rollason and her team, who organised an amazing series of activities for the students across all year groups over two weeks in March. The activities started with Mr Goldschmidt who is on the team designing the Bloodhound, a car set to break the world land speed record by going 1000 miles per hour next year!  We had two days of engineering activities delivered by the Smallpiece Trust and sponsored by Tomorrow’s Engineers.  There were lots of STEM related activities in lessons, tutor time and assemblies and the activities were rounded off with a solar eclipse.  What a fabulous range of opportunities for our young people.   Click here for STEM week booklet.

Comic Relief
A good time was had by all, with the funny faces theme running through Comic Relief day on 13th March.  The photos in Coleshill Matters capture the range of whacky activities that the students took part in and it was pleasing to see the students raising money for such a worthy cause.  Click here for Comic Relief photos.  Fund raising and charity have always been a key part of our school ethos, with students raising money for Ovarian Cancer Awareness as I write.  

Clare College Cambridge
Thanks to Mr Owen our Post 16 Students Services Leader, who has made a link with Clare College Cambridge. The prestigious college sent a representative to talk to parents and students at the Post 16 Open Evening in February.   On Friday 20th we had a visit from a team from the college who worked with students across all year groups.  

Warwickshire Youth Elections
We are proud to announce that Luke Wilson successfully stood in the Warwickshire Youth elections.  Luke is a real ambassador for the school and we wish him well in his new role.

 National Schools Trampoline Finals
On Saturday 14th March I was lucky enough to attend the finals of the schools' trampoline competition. Three of our amazing girls competed; Olivia May-Street (Year 8), Ellie Carr (Year 8) and Kimberly Green (Year 7). The standard was fantastic, with Olivia competing in the individuals against world ranked athletes and the three girls competing as a team.  The girls came second overall; this is a stunning achievement, well done!  

Visit of Lord Hunt
We are looking forward to the visit of Lord Hunt, through the Peers in Schools programme, on Friday 27th March.  This is a unique opportunity for our Post 16 students to meet with a member of the House of Lords.  For full story and photographs click here.

The Enigma Machine comes to Coleshill….
Yes the actual enigma machine that appears in the film ‘The Imitation Game’ was in our 3D room this month as our most able Year 7 mathematicians joined with students from Kingsbury and Coleshill primary schools to work with Mr Tom Briggs from the Bletchley Park team.  Thank you to Mrs Philips for organising this and to Coleshill Grammar School Endowment Foundation Governors for funding the visit.  Click here for photos.
