Headteacher’s Weekly Message

It has been a positive start to the half term. We have welcomed new students to the school and have launched the prefect application process with Year 10 students. Year 11 students have had their second week of mock examinations and early indications are that the grades have gone up quite considerably since the first round of mock examinations in November.

In addition, Year 9 and 10 Brilliant Club students have all graduated from The Scholars Programme and will be attending their graduation ceremony later this term. These students have met and studied with a PhD tutor who is an expert in their subject area and have been exposed to university style learning. Having participated in various tutorials, students were then asked to write a final assignment which was assessed in a university style and at an academic level beyond their age group. They should all be immensely proud of themselves because this programme is designed to stretch their academic capability.
