Higher Education

An important date for the diary is Wednesday 15th March when we will hold our annual Higher Education Fair.  This year we will be running a series of Careers lectures in the run up to the Higher Education Fair where students sign up for one or more talks given by professionals from an interesting array of backgrounds.  This will be an excellent opportunity to consider different lines of work, how to get into those areas and the variety of jobs available.

Wednesday 15th March promises to be a buzzing afternoon with over 70 universities from around the world filling our Sports Hall B to introduce their programmes and facilities.  This is a crucial time for our students to be asking questions and introducing themselves so that they can put a face to their future applications.  Parents are warmly welcome to the fair which starts at 1.30pm and finishes at 4pm. 

From Wednesday 8th – Tuesday 14th March there will be daily careers talks over lunchtime in the IB Academy. I would love to see Year 9 taking the opportunity to listen to the talks as it will tie in nicely with our current guidance topic. Arrangements for the Hub will be made to accommodate students attending the talks.

Class Dojo

I hope you are enjoying the updates on ClassDojo. This week I have invited more class teachers to join the trial so you should begin to see more posts. Please feel free to contact me with feedback on the use of the programme. For those who haven’t signed up please let me know if you require any support.

Steam Day


Assessment cycle

The cycle will run from Monday 6th – Friday 17th March. Due to a number of students travelling to this year’s u13 Fobisia games in Kuala Lumpar there has been a slight change to the assessment cycle. Please find below the updated version.  Some subjects are missing from the timetable as they will not be assessing using a test. Assessment in these subjects for this cycle will be on an ongoing basis, using evidence from a variety of sources over more than one lesson.

As per Assessment Cycle 1, the feedback will be sent home with the term report.
