I hope everyone had a great summer holiday.  It has been a great start to the year - so much has happened in the first two weeks of term! Year 7 pupils have got to know each other at the ‘Retreat Days’. 

Our Year 11 pupils had their start of year Mass at St Oswald’s, celebrated by Father John.  Year 10 pupils went to see ‘Blood Brothers’ at the Theatre Royal in St Helens to help them further understand the text they study in school.  Lots of pupils have already had trials for the various sports teams we run in order to represent the school in local, regional and national tournaments.  I have already seen many examples of outstanding pupil work across all subjects in school.  It is a privilege to be Headteacher of our school!

Mr Linton told me that the ‘Historians of the week’ are Katie in Y10 for her excellent first factual test on Weimar Germany and James in 8L for his good participation in class activities on Elizabeth I.

 

Mrs Outterside told me that Year 7 pupils have had a fantastic second week at St Edmund Arrowsmith Catholic High School.

Mrs Outterside is once again extremely impressed with the amount of achievement points which have been collected. Pupils have collected a staggering 842 achievement points!!! Please take a look at the superb achievements on the Portal, pupils are really Going the Extra Mile.

As you can see, all forms have collected achievement points. Take a look at this week’s leaderboard below, and aim to move up that leaderboard, Year 7!

Mrs Outterside also told me that Harry (7G) played tennis over the weekend in Glasgow! Harry and his team competed in a mini Davis Cup event, whereby there was a group of five teams competing against each other playing singles and doubles matches. Harry’s team won overall. They got presented with their prize on court prior to the GB team commencing their doubles match. They then got to watch the Great Britain team triumph over Uzbekistan. Well done Harry, another Andy Murray in the making!
