Principal's Message

Monday 19th June 2017

We have been very pleased with how the Year 11’s have conducted themselves during the exams which have all gone very well, so we thank you for all your support in helping your child revise and prepare.  We hope students take a well-earned break and relax and enjoy their Prom before moving on to further study and apprenticeships.

The Excelsior Sailing trip went very well with students making memories to last a life time.    We are looking ahead to several events coming up including the Year 9 visit to the Royal Norfolk Show, CAN’s Got Talent, Sports Day, FLY (Festival of Literature for Young People) and the Year 6 transition programme.

A reminder that we will be piloting doing all the progress reviews on the afternoon of Tuesday 18th July from 1.15pm – 6.45pm and appointments are being confirmed so we look forward to seeing you there.

The Year 11 exams have started extremely well with students showing a really purposeful and professional attitude.  The exams continue after half term so please encourage your child to use the revision resources provided and attend any additional sessions that have been put on for them.

 

Students have enjoyed recent trips to the UEA for Accelerated reader, the mentoring celebration and for City Sports and we are looking forward to sending students on the Excelsior sailing trip after half term.

It was nice to see so many of the Year 6 parents at our recent transition meetings, we are looking forward to welcoming the new Year 7’s in September.

Thank you for your support with Year 10 and Year 11 as they start their exams, there has been an atmosphere of real professional purpose which is only achieved through a strong partnership between home and school.

The recent PSV Einhoven trip led by Mr Taylor was a great success, it was wonderful to see so many students enjoying this trip.

I would also like to thank everyone for their attendance at the recent progress review days.  We will be piloting doing all the progress reviews on the afternoon of Tuesday 18th July from 1.15pm – 6.45pm so please put this date in your diary and appointments will be circulated shortly.

It was great to see so many students heading out for our end of term Rewards Trips before Easter. Students either enjoyed a game of bowling or went trampolining.  It was clear that everybody had an extremely good time and staff reported that our students were brilliant role models for the school.

 

The countdown to Year 11 exams is upon us so it is very important that all students attend all lessons and revision sessions to maximise their chances of success.

 

Your support with ensuring uniform standards are kept high during the Summer term is much appreciated.”

English and Maths mock exams recently took place  for Year 11 which went very well, helping to give Year 11 students a clear focus in the countdown to their exams. 

 

An ECDL computer course is taking place and there is great engagement with many students having passed the required modules.

 

World Book day was celebrated with a Roald Dahl theme, a Read-a-thon, Drop Everything And Read and quizzes and many students have continued reading the books they started on the day.

 

We are looking forward to ‘putting a nose on it!’ on Fri 24th March for Comic Relief.  Students will be in uniform but in addition can wear an item of red clothing or official Comic Relief merchandise and donations on the day are welcome.

 

A reminder that Progress Review days take place as follows so we look forward to seeing parents and carers to talk about your child’s progress:
