An exciting consequence of being an IB school is that its philosophy towards teaching and learning is shared with the younger students. We invest heavily in the training of our IBDP specialists but all students benefit from their knowledge and skills because our specialists teach throughout the school.

Dear Parents

IBDP Options Evening, Thursday 11 October

It was lovely to see so many parents of Year 11 students at Thursday’s IBDP option evening. Speaking with parents revealed a significant enthusiasm for our International Baccalaureate. Parents asked some excellent questions and appreciated the opportunity to find out more about the world’s premium post-16 qualification. We will continue to inform parents about the IBDP, via blog posts on our website and information events at the school, during the course of the year.

Approaches to Teaching and Learning (ATLs)

An exciting consequence of being an IB school is that its philosophy towards teaching and learning is shared with the younger students. We invest heavily in the training of our IBDP specialists but all students benefit from their knowledge and skills because our specialists teach throughout the school. Earlier in the week, I visited the Year 7 classroom of our experienced IBDP History teacher, Mr Agass. He was in the process of leading an exciting Year 7 research-based enquiry into ancient civilisations. He was using ATL methods that he had learned at a recent IBDP training event.

Parent Evenings (Year 10 and 11 P, Tuesday 16 October, the library, 15:30-16:30)

Next week, we begin hosting a number of parent evenings. The first is for parents of Year Year 10 and 11P students. The parents evening will be located in the library from 3:30 to 6:30 on Tuesday 16 October. We strongly recommend that parents attend these events. Translators are available. The parent evening provides an excellent opportunity to receive detailed, subject-specific feedback on your child’s progress. We hold two parent evenings per year for each year group. Last year, the average attendance was above 90% for these evenings, which indicates their value to you as parents.

Be Ambitious Assembly Awards

It was my pleasure to present a range of Be Ambitious awards to students in today’s Secondary Assembly. The students were rewarded following teacher nominations. The rewards celebrated unique and creative applications of language and artistic learning; exceptional perseverance and extraordinary academic attainment. The quality of the work rewarded demonstrated that there is no limit to what our students can achieve.
