As students from the school enjoy the start of their half term break, teachers and colleagues have today engaged in a highly successful and productive training day focusing on Quality First Teaching and meeting the individual needs of our young people. Thank you to all those involved and particular thanks to the professionals and parents involved in the presentations.
Celebrations of note for this week have been our ongoing support and engagement for our partner primary schools through our Aspire club and Able and Talented groups. We have also launched Mandarin classes that start in early November which are open to all.
I have also been delighted to receive such positive comments from prospective parents who have continued to take tours of the school, and experience the exciting ethos and environment within the school.
A highlight of the week has been the primary cross country competition, where 140 young students competed with MHS Sports Leaders organising and running an excellent community event. Congratulations to all those students who were involved.
I am already looking forward to November, as it is NCRM (November Children’s Rights Month), and this week we have been working with our partner schools to organise a host of activities and events that will further raise the profile of our student voice.
Finally, I have heard from my colleagues who are presently returning from an outstanding trip to the WWI battlefields, where our GCSE History students have had the honour to be a part of the 100 years Centenary event. I am sure that we will hear of their experiences and see some great photographs after the half term break. These will be published as always in our latest news section of the website.
Thank you to colleagues for the ongoing support and engagement with our students, and you can find more information about what has happened this term by downloading our latest newsletter here.
Have a relaxing and safe half term break,
