Secondary Update – Mr Simon Graves – 11/11/2016

Secondary Update

I spent the end of last week a few hours North of Ho Chi Minh City, in Madagui and Bao Loc City, undertaking the risk assessment visit for the year 9 trip. It looked amazing, set amidst a beautiful part of the country, and I know all the students in year 9 – and in other year groups – are going to have an incredible few days away at the end of this month. If you have not yet returned your child’s medical and waiver forms, please do so as soon as possible, please. Some of you have already attended the meetings about these trips, and the one for year 9 will be at 3.15pm on Monday.

On Wednesday, we had a number of exciting events going on. Key Stage 3 joined with the primary school to experience world-renowned percussionist, Andy Gleadhill, who took the students on a musical journey across the globe.

Key Stage 4, meanwhile, welcomed Family Medical Practice to continue their talks about relationships, while year 13 students carried out mock university interviews with staff. As one of the interviewers, it was a fascinating insight into our students’ growing maturity, and also their involvement in things beyond school and the academic. We had our first Ivy League student last year, and I have no doubt that a number of this year’s graduating class will be heading off to some of the world’s top universities, too.

You can find out more about how we prepare our students for university, and how you can support them with their studies, at the forthcoming series of secondary coffee mornings.

On Tuesday, at 11.00am, Mr Reid will be hosting the Key Stage 4 coffee morning, for parents of those students in year 10 and 11; and on Thursday, at 8.30am, Mr Lowry and Mr Curran will be talking to Key Stage 5 parents about A levels and university applications. I hope we will see many of you there.

Finally, house basketball began this week , with some interesting results…
