Year 9 pupils demonstrated their navigation skills last weekend in a practice run for the forthcoming Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award expedition. A group of 27 pupils took part in an eight mile circular walk setting off from Golden Acre Park. Thanks to Mr Milner for leading the activity and preparing the pupils in advance and to Miss Bishop, Mr Coldwell, Mr Easter, Mr Edney amd Miss McGinley for supervising. The assessed expedition for the award is scheduled for June. We wish our pupils every success for this activity
Examination study leave for Year 11 pupils will begin just before half-term on Friday 26 May. Some GCSE examinations will take place before leave begins: the first paper is scheduled for Monday 15 May. In the period between 15 and 26 May when GCSE examinations are not taking place, a comprehensive programme of revision classes led by specialist subject teachers will run alongside silent supervised study. The timetable for revision classes was issued at the recent parents’ information evening. Copies were sent home where parents did not attend the meeting.
Parents of Year 11 pupils are warmly invited to join pupils staff and governors at our Mass of Thanksgiving as pupils reach the end of their schooling here. The Mass takes place on Tuesday 20 June at 10.10am in the School Hall.
If you are the parent of a Year 7 pupil, please ensure that you have made appointments with your child’s subject teachers to attend the Parents’ Evening on Wednesday 10 May, 4.00-7.00pm. Every parent should make the effort to attend in order that we can provide you with valuable information regarding your child’s progress and work together to ensure the very best outcomes across the subjects. Mr Palmer, Achievement Leader and Mrs Clinch, Year Manager, will be in attendance and are available for appointments to meet with parents.
