Next week, from Monday to Thursday, our Year 10 and 12 Students are sitting mid-year examinations. Both of these year groups have been studying courses new to them since September and this is one way of determining how they have adapted to new styles of learning and give them the opportunity to experience the examination questions and setting. This also helps students to review their work and seek help from teachers if there is an area of study which they find more challenging. After the exams, our young learners are more informed about their progress, have learned more about individual revision techniques and styles and are more aware of the next steps to take in their learning journey.
Following the exam session, a group of our students led by Ms Ellis and Mr Pukos are heading to Tanzania to the Nord Anglia Education Camp. The students will have the opportunity to do some charity work with children in the area, experience camp life in Africa and investigate the animal life and the history of the spice trail. Other schools from the Nord Anglia family will also be there, so an opportunity to meet students from around the world makes this a unique experience for those participating in this trip. Our students have been working hard to raise money in order to help make the lives of the people living in this part of Tanzania a little easier and healthier. We wish them all a safe journey and look forward to hearing all about the trip on their return.
On Thursday 12 February, from 15.00 to 16.00, we would like to invite all parents to a Secondary School Parent seminar led by Ms Jean Kingham –Head of the English Language Support department. Venue: Dining Room at Limanowskiego
The seminar is for all parents whose children speak a language other than English at home and yet learn in English at school. There has been a great deal of research about children who do not learn through the mother tongue, and Ms Kingham will present some of these findings followed by an opportunity to ask questions and discuss ways in which our students can be supported at home.
Please also note the following event:
25 February 17.30-19.00 Year 9 Options evening.-for all Year 9 students and parents.
