Mrs Heywood's Words Lent 8
Year 11 pupils celebrate their first GCSE result of the year with 92% gaining a 9 to 4 grade in Mathematics.
A huge ‘well done’ to our Year 11 pupils and the Maths Department on their excellent results! We are proud of them and the confidence that these results will provide is an excellent foundation for their Summer exams.
Last year Ms Mogul took the plunge and took part in her first 10K night walk to raise awareness for autism and we are delighted that this year she will be joined by Megan, Year 10, and her Mum. Megan joined Claires Court in Year 7 and was diagnosed with ASD when she was 5. Megan delivered an extremely informative assembly last year about inclusion and accepting differences. She says "I am looking forward to doing the walk as I love London and it makes me happy to think I am helping other people with the same condition. I am very fortunate that I have all the support that I have but not everyone is as lucky as me." We are all extremely proud of Megan and all the other pupils within our community who are challenged daily to overcome their learning difficulties. Please support this worthwhile charity.
We were delighted that the magic of reading saw pupils and staff swapping their books for World Book Day in the Senior Library at lunchtime on Thursday.
The Year 7 and 8 pupils gained a real insight into the world of drugs in a recent talk held earlier this week. Pupils were given a wealth of information in a suitable platform with a very experienced external speaker where they could be open and honest and were fully engaged. The pupils listened attentively and interacted well throughout the presentation, taking away with them a wealth of invaluable information.
Next week we look forward to celebrating Science Week as Year 7 are investigating the theft of a valuable ukulele from the music department, which leads to investigating a murder.
The Geography rooms are currently looking even more colourful than usual... Year 7 were tasked with producing their own models as part of their rivers unit of work. How impressed we all are with the fantastic range of models, great ideas, packed with information about waterfalls, drainage and the water cycle. We do hope however that the rain clouds are kept at bay and that the weather is glorious for their trip to Rushall Farm on Monday.
A reminder that next Tuesday morning our sports teams are adorning their kits for their annual team photos.
Have a lovely weekend.
