We have welcomed Curtis Jobling a British author, illustrator and animator who gave several very engaging presentations on his novels to our KS3 students. We also marked the importance of internet safety with a cyber security expert from KPMG who came to present during our assembly slots last week giving us strong messages on how to use smart phones ‘smartly’, protect our online identity and stand up against cyber bullying. Our students seem constantly busy raising money for charity and I am really pleased to see this self-initiated charity outreach happening within our school, be it bake sales or waffle making; it fosters a true sense of community, responsibility and maturity.
All of this along with ski trips for KS3-5 to the Swiss Alps, history trips, Polish theatre trips, MUN trips and a group of students currently challenging themselves to confront their fears and climb Mount Kilimanjaro, suggest to me that we really do have an outstanding group of students and staff pushing their boundaries and aiming to excel.
Wishing you a restful and relaxing half term break.
Head of Secondary
