Headteacher’s Weekly Message

What a week! Year 10 Art and Photography students went to London yesterday and visited the V&A and Tate Modern. Year 9 students are half way through their GCSE options process and had a further assembly on Wednesday with presentations from ‘options’ subjects. Year 11 VCERT PE students – having sat their first formal examination in October – received their results yesterday …… and they are excellent! Congratulations!! Today Year 11 will receive the mock examination timetable for the next round of examinations in two weeks’ time.

My personal highlight of the week has been going into classrooms and seeing some fantastic lessons. Year 9 focus in Technology has been excellent and I have been really impressed by 11X’s written work in English.

Finally, I would like to thank the Friends of Ixworth for their continued support of the School. At Tuesday’s meeting they presented two cheques totalling £1,900. This is fantastic and will make such a difference! Of course, the events that the Friends put on would be nothing without your continued support and I look forward to seeing you at this year’s events.
