Reaping the rewards of hard work

The examination season is upon us once again. 

The examination season is upon us once again. 
 
Year 11 began their examination timetable on Monday 15th May and the GCSE exams are now well and truly in full swing. The first two weeks of this half term are particularly busy but students have been working very hard and attending their immersion sessions between the exams, so we are really hoping their hard work will be rewarded in August.  On Thursday 11th May there was a celebration event for them to look back at their five years with us. The students were amazing and there were lots of tears!
 
Our Year 13 students remain in lessons until the end of this half term when we have a celebration event organised for them as they come to the end of their two years in the Sixth Form and for most, seven years at the school. They have been brilliant and a real credit. We wish them well for their future; most are hoping to move on to university so we hope August’s results will provide them with the passport they need.
 
Across the school, all other year groups are also about to embark upon examinations, starting with Year 12 and Year 9 in the final week of this half term. Year 12 students have a mixture of AS exams and in-house school exams as subjects move from modular courses to the two year linear ones. The in-house exams are very important as they will determine entry to Year 13, meaning students must perform well.
 
Years 7, 8 and 10 also have exams this term. For Years 7 to 9 revision booklets have been sent home to support students and I would ask that you ensure your daughter is revising thoroughly and using the hints, tips and advice given. Year 10 will receive theirs after the break. This is all good preparation for the future.
Proud to be representing the school
There have been countless occasions over the last six weeks when students have undertaken activities outside of the curriculum where they have represented the school and as ever, been wonderful ambassadors. Competitions in Art, MFL, Jack Petchey events including the Speak Out Challenge and Maths Challenge have all brought success. Our wonderful summer concert showcased a huge amount of musical talent and students across the year groups have been on a variety of trips and visits.
Proud to wear the rose
Uniform has been of an excellent standard this half term and I wish to maintain the same standard through the next half term. As the weather gets warmer a reminder that students must wear their blazer and should take off their jumper if they are hot. Of course, if classrooms are hot students will be permitted to take off their blazer during a lesson.
