TIMETABLE - WEEK B  (22/06/2015)

HEADTEACHER'S BLOG - MAY 2015 

Champions Are Made in the Summer!
We had a recent assembly where I talked to the children  about being champions, in whatever way that meant for them.  I challenged them to think about what they could do to achieve their personal best this term.  With the examination season now open us I am delighted with the way in which our young people have thrown themselves into this half term.  It is a busy time of year for our students particularly those facing public examinations.  However, the students have worked hard and shown resilience.  As a father of a child who has just finished his SATs I understand the need for balance between wanting our children to do well and pushing too hard.  I hope that at The Coleshill School we have got the balance right and, certainly in the younger years, there is a balance between fun and preparing them for examinations.  As we move into next half term there a range of exciting things to look forward to, as you will see below.   

There is no Coleshill Matters this half term as we are preparing a bumper edition for the end of the year.  

May I take this opportunity to thank all our families for their support and wish you a good half term break.  

Year 8 Meet Author, Annabel Pitcher
Year 8 visited Arthur Terry School with Miss Lamburn to meet author Annabel Pitcher as shown in the photo above.  Her latest book is ‘My sister lives on the mantelpiece’   This critically acclaimed book deals with the difficult contemporary issues of both bullying and terrorism and manages to bring a sense of humour to both subjects.  

Year 11 on Track for Best Results Ever
The final set of mock examinations demonstrated continued excellent progress for our hard working Year 11 cohort.  They are on track to achieve the best results the school has ever achieved across the full range of subjects.  We are so proud of them and wish them the very best of luck as they sit their final examinations.   We look forward to celebrating with them in August!  

Year 11 Key Dates
Half term revision
Leavers’ Assembly – Tuesday 23rd June
Year 12 Induction Day –– Wednesday 24th June - for Year 11 joining the Sixth Form, as well as external candidates
Year 11 Prom – Friday 3rd July (please ensure you have paid on Parent Pay)  

Sixth Form Going Strong
We wish all our sixth formers luck in the final exams.  Year 13 will be leaving us to start the next stage in their lives and we will miss them dearly; a very special cohort who are set to achieve the best results of any Year 13 cohort.   We look forward to welcoming Year 12 back soon into Year 13 and also welcoming the new Year 12 as our Sixth Form goes from strength to strength.  

Sixth Form Key Dates
Year 12 return on Monday June 8th
Year 13 Leavers’ Assembly Friday June 19th

We Are Oversubscribed in Year 7!
As a sign of how far the school has improved we are oversubscribed for the new Year 7 in September 2015.   As a result we have increased our capacity to 210 for the next three years in Year 7 only.  We are welcoming in year admissions into all other year groups also.  This means the school will again be full by 2017, ensuring we can provide the very best in teachers and resources for our young people.  

Open Morning
May I remind you that we will be having an Open Morning on Saturday June 27th 9.00am-12.00pm for prospective families for both Year 7 and Sixth Form.  

A Fun Time Ahead
Next half term we have some exciting things to look forward to:  

British Values Week – a week of activities where all students in Year 7, 8 & 9 will be off timetable and in non-uniform. They will take part in a range of activities across subjects and will have the chance to work with our partner primaries who will each be coming into school for a morning or afternoon during the week.  

Work Experience Week – during the same week Y10 will be out of school on work experience. This is such an important and valuable time for the Year 10 students as they take their first real steps into adult hood.  

Drayton Manor – Year 7, 8 & 9 have the opportunity to go to Drayton Manor during British Values week.  Can I urge families to pay for this trip on Parent Pay so that children don’t miss out on a fun day with their friends to celebrate all their fabulous achievements this year.

Sports Day – a real highlight in the school calendar as the houses battle it out to be crowned sports champion. Dudley were victorious last year, who will be successful this time around?

Awards Evening – Tuesday 14th July.  Invites will be posted out soon after half term to award winners to attend our annual prestigious awards evening.  

We break up for the summer holidays at 3.10 pm on Thursday 16th July.          .
