Welcome back after the Easter Break. I do hope it was restful and an enjoyable time with family and friends.

Easter denotes the start of new beginnings and I am happy that we feel so positive about our new (final) term in this academic year. Year 9 have selected their new GCSE Pathways and seem excited about the challenge these GCSEs will present. Year 11 are obviously fully immersed in their GCSE preparation and I am sure, with plenty of support at home and in school, our 2016 cohort will enjoy success ready for their new start at college or in apprenticeships. Please remember all the GCSE support materials are posted on our website along with the revision timetable indicating the formal sessions we offer at lunch and after school to help our Year 11.

Our Ski Trip went extremely well! A big thankyou to everyone involved for their commitment towards these enrichment opportunities, both students and staff. Skiing skills were developed on the mountain and teamwork a focus for the après ski. Please do look out for the full report and images from this ski course. Hopefully it will inspire others to attend in two years’ time.

Robotics Club is still going strong with fantastic progress on the Space Rover and high altitude balloon project. A launch is imminent and we will report our success.

We have won 2 awards! The Gold Award for Democracy associated with student voice and 3rd place in School of the Year. Our young people are empowered to lead on local and national projects and express their opinions with respect and dignity. Many thanks to all the students involved in our representation and special appreciation to my staff who lead by example: Miss Walker, Mrs Mansfield, Miss Holmes and Mr Wiseman.

And finally… We benefitted from a wonderful visit from Will Sears during our i-Value lesson on Monday. He inspired us with an account of his life and how to overcome hardships such as physical disability. Will managed to capture our attention for a full hour and all of us present were able to reflect on how lucky we are to be healthy and a part of such a positive school and local community.
