Head's Blog 9th February 2018
It was a pleasure to welcome so many students and their families to the Careers Fair a couple of weeks ago. We had representatives from some fantastic organisations here to talk to the students about their future career plans; many of whom commented on how engaged and interested our young people were.
We were also visited by Mr King, who has been running an Artefacts Day here at the school for the last 12 years. He provides the students with an amazing opportunity to see, handle and even try on articles from the 1St World War. Year 8 thoroughly enjoyed the day, and it really brought the topic to life for them.
We also saw the continuation of our Higher Education Visits to Chester University; this time the subjects were Fashion Design, Forensics and Photography. The students are finding these trips both valuable and informative.
The 1st of February marked the start of LGBT History Month; we marked the start of this event as a school by staff choosing a member of the LGBT community who has inspired us. Some have chosen scientists, some actors, and others members of their own family.
Year 11 are fully involved with their trial exams this week; their commitment and hard work is great to see. It will all pay off when they receive their results in a few weeks.
Our work as the lead school for the Emotionally Healthy Schools (EHS) Project continues, as we support both Time to Talk and Children’s Mental Health Week. We now have a pop-up banner on our website which leads you straight to the EHS page. Please do have a look to see all the great work we are doing around the emotional health of our students, staff and community.
Have a great weekend!
