Head's Blog 11th May 2018
We finished last term in true Middlewich High School style, by celebrating World Book Day. As always, it was fantastic to see the effort that had gone into the door decorations and costumes.
Our Debating Team were also successful at the Pixl Up for Debate Competition on the 27th March, winning two out of their three debates. It has been a rewarding experience for them, and really built their confidence when it comes to public speaking; well done team!
It has been a busy start to the summer term, with Year 10 going into exams, and Year 11 preparing for their GCSEs. They did find time for a trip to the theatre to see Romeo and Juliet though, which they found both useful and enjoyable.
Year 9 and 10 visited Cambridge University last week; many of them were inspired by the trip and came back with aspirations to return there after college. Thank you to staff for providing students with the opportunity to visit universities and showing them where their hard work and commitment could lead them.
Our Prefects were put through their paces by the Army last week. They were taught about teamwork, dedication and leadership skills; all valuable qualities for their roles as student leaders.
Many thanks to our visiting speakers, for attending our Year 7 Careers Question Time. It was a great opportunity for the students to ask representatives from various industries about the world of work, and receive advice on making their way in their chosen profession. Thanks also go to our panel of interviewers who guided Year 10 through their mock interviews on Wednesday. This event is a valuable experience for those students approaching college and apprenticeship interviews; they all represented themselves with maturity and professionalism.
As you may have seen, we will be holding an event on the 1st anniversary of the Manchester Arena Bombing, to raise funds for the Remembering Nell Foundation. I would like to thank you all for your help with this so far; the community really has pulled together to support the event.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish Year 11 every success in their GCSE exams, which begin next week; your hard work and dedication over the last five years will pay off.
