Another extremely busy term, where staff and pupils have worked together to achieve amazing things; from enjoying the snow, as we remained open to pupils during the extreme weather conditions through to achieving various qualifications in English, Maths and ICT. The Summer term ahead will bring more exams and opportunities for work experience placements for our Ks4 learners, as well as Curriculum Week, unit residential trips and the arrival of the Summer grid activities for the rest of the school! The staff team have continually worked hard to provide a range of exciting activities to ensure that all learners who achieve ‘high passes’ will be able to access a variety of engaging activities throughout the school term. In addition, there will be a range of opportunities for Ks4 learners to access additional support, revision and ‘catch up’ sessions to support them in their exams this summer.
For those undertaking exams during the Summer term – this message is for you, from the extremely wise Dr Seuss:
“And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)” Dr Seuss
Of course there are no 100% guarantees in life, but when you have a positive mind-set, you’ve got a pretty good shot at getting it right. Success begins in the mind, and if you go in with a defeatist attitude you’re likely to come up short. Just think of what you could accomplish if you had the belief that you would succeed – tackle anything with the confidence that ‘you can’ and there’s a high chance ‘you will’! So with that message in mind I hope that our Year 10 & 11 learners will use the Easter break to prepare for their upcoming exams next term, as well as have time set aside for catching up with friends and family.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a good Easter holiday and look forward to seeing you back in school on Tuesday 17 April.
