Headteacher’s Blog – 12th January 2024

I hope that you had a great Christmas break. It’s been a pleasure to welcome back students who have arrived well prepared in approach and attitude, along with high standards of uniform. Thank you for your support in making this an excellent start to the Spring Term.  In assemblies this week, Mrs. Godsell-Wright has been talking about purpose and how a new year can give us the opportunity to think about what we want to achieve and how to ensure that we make this happen.  Whilst each of the year groups have a different focus related to their differing points in their secondary school experience, what is common for all is the need to have a positive attitude, maximise opportunities and believe you can achieve.

It was Careers Parent Information evening last night where Mrs. Morgan, our Careers Adviser, was pleased to be able to share our CEIAG (Careers Education, Information, Advice and Guidance) programme and how we prepare our students for life beyond school. This led to further questions about other aspects of school. If you weren’t able to attend, you’ll be able to find the presentation used in the Careers section of the website. We’ll send out a link to you when it’s been uploaded. The topic of the next event is 7th March, 6-7p.m., when we’ll be looking at ‘Wellbeing and supporting students with exams’. Please let us know if there are any other topics that you would like us to cover in future events.

Advance notice that we have a Professional Development Day on Thursday 14th March when students do not attend school.

Have a lovely weekend!
