A successful and enjoyable charities week
The gym has been a hive of activity every lunch time this week as each house has had a day to set up stalls, run competitions and put on fun events in order to raise money for our chosen charity of the West Midlands Air Ambulance Service.
The atmosphere has been terrific. The kindness, ingenuity and generosity of our students and staff have shone through. Very well done and thank you to all the students and staff involved. It has been a real team effort.
Our year 10 students took part in some very engaging sessions about study skills this week, learning about how best to revise and study for their examinations. I was very pleased to see several students putting their mind mapping and memory techniques into practice in the lessons I visited this week.
Congratulations to our linguists this week, who all scored very highly in the national on line competition. They have all entered their names in the Golden Book and include: Owen A, Maymuna H, Rio B, Eishah J, Oswah G, Aatish G, Ben H, Francis M, Matthew B, Megan H, Hannah T, Eleanor A and Katie H. Very well done to all students and best wishes for the weekend.
