Year 11, Year 8 Parents' Evening, 5 Star Learners' Garden Party and more.

Dear Parent/Carer

 

YEAR 11


A Maths revision session will be running this Saturday, 9 June 2018 from 10.00 am – 1.00 pm for all students in preparation for their Maths Paper 3 exam early next week. Please encourage your child to take this opportunity to work hard on past papers to help instil confidence. If they have any last minute queries staff will be on-hand to assist.


YEAR 8 PARENTS’ EVENING


On Tuesday 19 June 2018 from 3.30 pm – 6.30 pm the Year 8 Parents’ Evening will be held. If you have a child in Year 8 it is important that you attend as subject teachers will be available to discuss your child’s progress on a one to one basis.


5 STAR LEARNERS’ GARDEN PARTY


On Thursday 7 June 2018 an afterschool garden party was held to reward 5 star learners for their hard work last half term. Students had fun playing games and enjoying a picnic in the sunshine. Well done to all of our 5 star learners.


KS3 5 STAR CELEBRATION EVENT


On the afternoon of Tuesday 26 June 2018 nominated students in Key Stage 3 will be invited to a 5 star learners’ celebration event to acknowledge their hard work and effort whilst enjoying afternoon tea. We are delighted that our guest speaker this year is Mr Ian Boardman – Achievement Leader at Longley Park Sixth Form College.


WORK EXPERIENCE


Year 10 embark on their work experience programme from Monday 2 July 2018. Students have secured placements tailored to their interests and future career aspirations. Throughout the two week programme, staff will visit students at their work place and on return to school pupils will review the skills and knowledge they have gained.
In preparation, on the afternoon of Friday 22 June 2018 students will be leaving school at lunchtime to visit their placements and complete forms to comply with health and safety. Students should not make arrangements for these visits on any other day. Should you require further information regarding this, please send your child to Miss Bissett at the beginning of the school day.


LONGLEY VISIT – YEAR 10


On Friday 29 June 2018 we are excited to be taking the whole year group to Longley Park Sixth Form as part of our aspiration programme. Students will be having A Level and BTEC taster lessons in a variety of subjects as their post-16 journey begins. This will be followed up in November 2018 with a post-16 event for parents.


COMPULSORY FIELD TRIP – GEOGRAPHY STUDENTS – YEAR 10


As part of the GCSE Geography course, all students must complete a piece of physical Geography fieldwork. This year students will be visiting the Holderness Coast. It is crucial that all Year 10 Geography students attend this trip as it is part of the Paper 3 exam they will sit in 2019. Further details to follow from Miss Bissett.

 

Yours faithfully
Simon Winslow
Headteacher
