Secondary Update – From Mr Simon Graves 16/10/2015

What a busy and exciting first half term of the year! The weeks seem to have flown by with so much packed into them.

Last weekend, our year 11 iGCSE geography students were up in Mui Ne doing their fieldwork project. As always, their conduct was impeccable and they will have gained many skills to help them get the best possible grade in their final exam next summer . My thanks go to Mr Cryan, Ms Lautenschlager and Ms Tuoc for giving up their weekend to enable the students to go along.

Shortly after half term, our A level art students will be going out for the day and our year 12 students also have a residential coming up for prefect training in November, so lots more to look forward to.

Last Thursday and Friday, Mr Reid took a group of key stage 4 and 5 students to an engineering expo, to give them an insight into the world of work. We were the only school to attend the event, which was aimed at those in the industry, and the companies were impressed with our students’ knowledge and questioning.

This week I had the pleasure of seeing some of the heats for the key stage 3 English Poetry Slam. The talent in all three year groups is simply outstanding, and with the finals taking place shortly after half term, and points being awarded towards the house competition, I can’t wait to see who will be crowned overall winners. Watch this space for videos of all the final entries…

We’ve had more universities in to visit this week, this time from the United States and Japan, demonstrating just how sought after students who graduate from BVIS are.  With the quality and high standards of knowledge and skills gained through studying A levels, universities are aware that they will be receiving top class students. On the evening of Tuesday, November 24th, parents will have the opportunity to come into school for a presentation explaining more about the advantages of what we offer here, and the differences between A level, IB and the American high school system.

Three university visits BVIS this week

We’ve had more visitors as well – the A level English literature students were treated to a workshop on Othello from a visiting British Shakespeare company whilst all of year 11 as well as A level literature students were treated to a spookily dramatic production of Bram Stoker’s Gothic horror, Dracula.  Opportunities like these working with real actors and seeing texts brought to life are simply invaluable for our students’ expanding education, and we are grateful to the English department for organising these.

Finally, today I had the opportunity to take members of the student council across to BIS to visit their International Day. We are hoping to forge more links with our sister schools over the coming years, and this was a great insight into life over at AP2. We’re looking forward to welcoming BIS students here after half term.

So, with all that’s going on, everyone is ready for a well-earned break and a rest. I wish you all a peaceful and enjoyable half term, and look forward to welcoming everyone back in a week’s time.
