Whether your child did better than they expected or worse in their Mock Exams, it is crucial that they understand where and how they can improve. As Mrs Fox explained to the Year 10 & 11 students in Assembly on Monday, ‘failure’ is an important step on the road to success. This week was the turn of the Year 12 and Pre-IB students to sit their mid-year exams; we are confident that their examination ‘experience’ will have been formative and developmental.
Year 11 students experienced seven ‘taster lessons’ spread throughout this week to give them a chance to sample a range of IB subjects at different levels. This is one of several stages which we have led them through on the journey to making the best choices. With lots of information and opportunities to ask questions, these lessons should help them make informed decisions for next academic year.
Year 7, 8 and 9 students had an extended STEAM experience on Friday morning, an opportunity to take part in an extended inter-disciplinary project on wearable technology.
Finally, a group of Year 10 students left on the Tanzania Seeway Expedition on Wednesday. We are sure it will be a life-changing experience and we look forward to seeing the photos and hearing all about their experiences when they return.
