What another term and Year, so much completed and achieved in such a short period of time !!!!

CELEBRATION ASSEMBLY Once again I was amazed with the amount of certificates that were given out through hard work and great attitude throughout the school. Not only was this demonstrated with in lessons throughout the curriculum but also around school and through the great ethos the year has. Awards in the community, out of School Sporting activities as well as all the Music and Drama that is consistently going on with in the year group are fantastic to see. Below are the winners from the last celebration assembly. Well done to those who won as well as to those who were nominated too!!

We had a great assembly from Joffre White – a great author that has written some outstanding books for young adults to read. The assembly he gave engaged pupils with reading and the importance of it. Funny life stories and anecdotes kept us listening with intent and overall a great opportunity to meet an author of his calibre. Many individuals are not only reading his books from the LRC but also reading a wider range of material again accessed from the LRC. This has inspired more pupils to reach their Accelerated Reader target grades and which I’m pleased to say many have as well as reaching word millionaires. In conjunction with this, Mrs Gray introduced the Read-a-thon to raise

money for charities with prizes going out in the up and coming celebration assembly as well as to those who have reached their targets in accelerated reader.

Rewards Afternoon – two tutor groups have proved themselves over the last two terms in the tutor competition. 7.5 and 7.3 have accrued points throughout the terms for best attendance, most rewards points and least amount of negative behaviour points. Also added in were tutor challenges which were introduced every two weeks or so to add in further points to the ongoing tally. A pizza afternoon and film were the prizes for the two tutor groups who thoroughly deserved their rewards after all their hard work and diligence.


The year group in general have been superb over the last two terms and to acknowledge this a rewards trip was organised to Longwell Green Bowling in Bristol. Pupils who qualified had access to unlimited bowling and food after their MBU2 results. Pupils qualified for the trip as long as their attendance was 95% or higher and their behaviour and attitude marks from MBU2 were good or better. The trip was a great success with all individuals having a great time. Awards went out to pupils for getting

the highest score in bowling. Thanks to the tutor team and Mr Reeves for giving up their evenings to run the trip as well and all had a great time.

“Bowling was the best trip ever and I had the funniest time of my life and I wish I could do it all over again because we all had an amazing time. Bowling was great, the balls were quite heavy but I got used to it quickly. My favourite time when we had finished

and we went on the arcade machines. We put lots of money in one machine and got some back out as well as loads of sweets.”
