from Nursery to Sixth Form

Mrs Rogers' words Lent week 3

The UCAS deadline has come and gone and I am delighted (and somewhat relieved!) that all Year 13 students targeting university have now submitted their applications. Some students have been asked to provide additional subject specific personal statements and others have attended interviews and auditions and, as always, there is lots of excited chatter about offers. Following their reflections on the feedback in their reports, the students are focused on implementing the strategies they should to ensure results day in August is a celebration.

Year 12 are now spending time in PSHEE considering the options open to them at the end of their Sixth Form adventure. Apprenticeships, employment and gap years have been researched and discussed and preparation for the start of their UCAS application is well underway. 

One Year 12 student, Ayshmit, is now a TV star, appearing on Channel 4’s Countdown this week. He was pitted against a Fellow from Warwick University who had won the previous 7 contests, so despite quite a battle, Ayshmit came an honorable second. Ann Robinson was impressed with Ayshmit, not a sharp word was spoken by her!

Universities are eager to welcome potential students on campus now so I share the open days calendar link here where you can find further information and registration links. 

Yesterday was Holocaust Memorial Day and in assembly this morning I explained why we remember the genocide of the Jews and more recently in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur; it is because we learn more about the past, we empathise with others today, and we take action for a better future. 

I do hope you enjoy the weekend.
