It is hard to believe we are 3 weeks into the new term and decade already. I hope you all had a restful and enjoyable Christmas and New Year with your loved ones.
This term has got off to a positive start for students and staff, despite some lingering colds which are still affecting us.
After our ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection we continue to develop our curriculum towards achieving greater outstanding goals. We are working closely with our Year 11 and 13 students on intervention in preparation for their examinations as well as individual interviews to help them plan for their futures, specifically the next 2 years, whether that will be sixth form, college, apprenticeships or employment.
Last week we held mock results days which the students appreciated as it represented a dry run for the summer.
Our House teams continue to support all students across the Academy and competitions for House points are up and running – with this week being a fitness challenge.
We look forward to seeing Year 9 parents at Options evening next week and the Key Stage 3 parents’ E-Safety evening the following week. This is a really important time as Year 9 students approach the end of the Key Stage so we hope to see as many of you as possible in school for our subject talks and advice sessions.
Wishing you all a relaxing weekend.
Mr D Hardy, Head Teacher
