We celebrated one of the highlights of the school calendar on Wednesday with wonderful performances at our annual ‘Music Showcase’. This has rapidly become one of my favourite events as it shows off everything that is great about our school; pupils performing superbly, staff giving them every opportunity for exceptional performance and parents/extended family supporting their children and the school as we work together to celebrate how much they have flourished whilst in our care.  When I drove home on Wednesday evening. I could not have been prouder of everyone’s efforts - it was quite simply superb!

Mr Reardon told me that Y9 have been working very hard this week, having almost doubled their achievement points total from last week and finishing on 734. The top contributors to this total was Mr Hobbs's form (H) who gained 125 points overall. In terms of individual achievement, it was Tyler Jones who topped the charts for the second week running with 16. In terms of group effort, a special congratulations should go to 9W who didn't record any late marks this week. Well done and keep it up!

Mrs Ainsworth told me Geography Club started this week and had a great attendance from year 7 and 8. They are currently researching past volcanic eruptions and designing model volcanoes - which they will be making after half-term, also making them erupt!  It's all very exciting! I can’t wait to see those models!

Historians of the week are: for Mrs Cole, Katie McGrath in 9L and Natasha Travers in 9M for excellent effort in their presentation on life in Nazi Germany; for Mr Linton, Millie Judson in 7L for excellent work in her explanation paragraphs on the Black Death and for Mr Hill, Sophie Williams in 7A for consistently excellent effort in her lessons and homework.
