Blog: 20th September 2019

Students have been asked to make their mark in assemblies this week by taking part in the annual Make your Mark ballot, the largest consultation of young people in the country. Students were asked to choose from UK wide topics such as protecting the environment, votes at 16 and improving mental health services before identifying issues closer to home. The outcome of the vote will determine what is debated by the UK Youth Parliament in the House of Commons in November.

In preparation for Open Evening on Wednesday 16th October, Miss Flowers has been using her photography skills to capture daily life at Boroughbridge High School for our new prospectus.

On Thursday afternoon, with the sun still shining brightly on the playing fields of Boroughbridge High School, Year 7 boys were embarking upon their first football match supported by parents and friends. Following a fast-paced game, the score was 3-2 as the final whistle blew, with BHS the victors. Over on the netball courts, the newly formed Year 10 Girls’ Netball team were taking on their opposition with increasing confidence. Despite their 10-6 defeat, they demonstrated that we have much to look forward to in the coming months.

With another week of reward stamp collection, a quick reminder that you can view your child’s rewards, attendance and behaviour log on My Child at School.  If you are a parent of a Year 7 student then you’ll be receiving your log-in details at the Year 7 Tutor/Parent Evening on Wednesday 23rd October. If you would like your log in details before then, please contact Mrs Johnstone at

A final reminder that we close at 2.30pm next Friday (27th September) for the UCI World Championships.

Have a lovely weekend!
