Good Morning all!
Apologies for the late start to the year, but we are up and running and I have found some expert writers within the year group who wish to blog anonymously. Here is their first post of many this year!
Welcome back year 10s! We’re six weeks in now, and the beginning of your GCSE journey has begun. The next two years are extremely important, and though they may be tough, persistence and a good work ethic will get us all through. Hopefully, by the end of it, we’ll become mature and respectful young adults.
- This year we have a few new members of the year staff team which we’d like to welcome. They are Mr Gillett who has taken over from Miss Etheridge as a tutor. Mrs Gillett is also attached to our year team.
- Make sure to check out the new PE/Music and Art Department Extra Curricular timetable, as there may be new and exciting opportunities to get involved.
Duke Of Edinburgh
A new opportunity given to year 10s this year is the Duke of Edinburgh awards. This is an experience where students will have to volunteer, learn/improve a skill, partake in sporting activities, as well as a two day assessed hike in the New Forest. The first meeting was held a few weeks ago where we watched the year 11 present their experience and finding as the finished the final step of this incredible journey. Congrats to all the Year 11 who completed DofE and we hope all year 10 who are participating will have learned something from the Year 11.
We wish you all the best for the year!
With only a few days till October half-term, I can’t believe we’re already a 6th of the way through the year. It all gone so quickly. Hope everyone has a nice week off and feels refreshed when they come back for another great half-term.
