Lots of really exciting things have happened over the last two weeks. Our Year 10 have all been out on week two of work experience doing a variety of different roles. We look forward to their return on Monday 4 June when we will kick start our preparations for Year 10 exams. We would like to support our Year 10 and ensure that they get the best possible exam results. Students can then use this as a good platform as they move into their final year with us.
Year 11 continue to work hard through their GCSEs this week. It has been a very big week with exams in all the core subjects. So far, attitudes to examinations have been incredibly positive and students have been staying late and coming in early. I hope that Year 11 keep up this good work!

We are currently in the process of organising a 'role model seminar' with Urban Synergy for our Year 8 students and their families which will take place on the evening of Tuesday 5 July. The role model seminar was really well received by Year 9 students last week. It resembles a careers fair where the students get the opportunity to meet people who work in a variety of different careers, talk to them, ask and answer questions and reflect on future career pathways.

Last week the school hosted the metropolitan police for extended assemblies with Year 7 and Year 8. The assemblies theme was 'operation makepeace'. Operation Makepeace is an award winning educational presentation delivered in schools and youth settings by specially trained firearms officers from the Metropolitan Police, which aims to educate young people about the consequences of carrying guns, knives and being involved in criminal gangs. Since 2008 the presentation has been delivered to over 45,000 young people across London Boroughs in over 300 schools and youth settings. A really outstanding presentation.

"A huge thank you to Will Hitch from the Metropolitan Police Armed Response Unit for coming into to speak to our Year 7 & 8s. An eye opening talk for everyone"

It was a privilege to meet Year 6 students last week from families who will be joining us in September at our induction event. Families had the opportunity to meet staff, ask questions, taste our lunchtime food menu, order uniform and purchase essential equipment/stationary from our amazing Year 9 students David Amamize and Elvis Michael, who sold maths sets and scientific calculators for the whole evening. Other Year 9 students were role models and showed parents to the correct location, answered questions and gave them their induction packs. Once again we are oversubscribed in Year 7 and look forward to working with families over the next five years.

We were delighted to receive a certificate this week from the British Council awarding us the foundation level: Introducing Internationalism. The British Council wrote:

"You have demonstrated an excellent start in promoting the international dimension across your school and highlighting the benefits of learning in a global context. Your commitment to extending and embedding internationalism in your curriculum is a valuable aspect of your school ethos"

A big thanks to Ms Davies for her leadership of this initiative.

I am pleased to report that attendance has picked back up to over 96% most days. Please ensure your child is in school every day, as it really does make a difference.

Finally, you will be aware that we had an OFSTED inspection this week. I would like to thank all students and parents who participated in the survey to OFSTED.
As soon as the report has been sent to us, we will share with you.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all families a restful bank holiday. May I remind Year 11 that we have a full programme of classes each day over the week and on each weekend.

Dr S. Mundy - Headteacher
