    Published 08/07/21, by Hayley Johnston

    A week of celebration this week. After a late night on Wednesday, the students came into school excited and buoyed by the many successes of our national football team. Those of us that remember the painful experiences of the past cannot quite believe it all and I am delighted that this generation only really knows successful English sports teams. As we continue to develop our leadership programmes here at Senior Girls, there are many lessons we can learn from Southgate, who is as close as you can get to Level 5 leadership. He has taken something good and is on the verge of making it great.

    This week, Mrs Ruddick delivered our assembly on the importance of keeping things in perspective. Watching Christain Erikson receive life-saving treatment on the field of play was unbelievable as none of us could quite believe what we were seeing. Mrs Ruddick used this as an example to remind us that there are far more important things in life - and it is essential we cherish all the moments we have with the ones we love. It was a powerful and critical message.

    Year 11 have left us, long live Year 11. Interviews for Head Girl take place next week and I am so pleased that we have had so many applications from our current Year 10s.

    As I write this, the sun is shining and I am pinching thirty minutes before I go to teach my final Year 11 lesson of the year. Their assessments have been written, marked and moderated and we now have an hour together to reflect on their time in History.

    As we continue through this Narnia-esque eternal winter, the school has been in full assessment mode this week. We continue to be very proud of our amazing Year 11 students who are working hard to ensure all the evidence we use for the Centre Assessed Grades is their best work. We are also delighted with the way the rest of the school has approached their Common Tasks.

  • Mr Richards' words Lent week 11

    Published 26/03/21, by Hayley Johnston

    One of the many wonderful things about being a teacher is that the job offers lots of opportunities for renewal. At the end of term we all look back and reflect on what was, and plan for what will be better. This has been the most turbulent of terms but the stoic nature of our community means we have taken it, got through it and continued to improve.
