It has been an eventful week before the half term break. On Wednesday 7 February we hosted a rowing competition for Progress students from both Conisborough and Charlton Park Academy. This was an incredible event, well done to all students who participated.

Our Year 10 students spent the day on Wednesday 8 February at Christ the King sixth form on a progression conference to give them a taste of higher education. Students had specialist sessions on UCAS applications, post 16 lessons, mentoring and higher education.  Students really enjoyed the day and behaved in an exemplary, professional manner which I am very proud of. I know they will have really benefitted from this experience and the careers guidance and input. I do hope it will inspire our young people to work hard over the next year to secure the highest possible GCSE results so they can have wide choice in whether to study A-levels or vocational courses (or a mixture) in post 16 or whether to start an apprenticeship.

It was a great enriching session for Year 9 students on Thursday 9 February who avidly watched a live streaming of King Lear by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Our 'Star Student' of the week is Renay in Year 11. She was nominated by Ms Efford, her Maths teacher.

"Renay works so hard in Maths and comes to every single intervention available to her. She has moved from being one of the lowest scorers in the class to the top six in the test last week. I am so impressed with her determination and progress." – Ms Efford

Our second 'Star Student' is Reece Douglas-Neil in Year 9 and has been nominated by Ms Hagan.

"Reece is exceptional in lessons and has a positive attitude to learning." – Ms Hagan

Congratulations to Renay and Reece for being star students of this week.

Please could I remind all Year 11 parents that there is a programme of intervention classes next week including Media, Graphics, Textiles and Maths.  If your child is expected to attend please support the school in ensuring attendance.

Finally our young people's contribution to the community is really important and for this reason I would like to publicly celebrate Maria in Year 11. Maria, as a long standing advisor to the Young Mayor, has been invited by Lord Kennedy of Southwark to tour the palace of Westminster followed by afternoon tea in the Cholmondeley Room and Terrace. We do hope Maria enjoys this really important day which is recognising the contribution that young advisors in Lewisham are making.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all families a restful half term.

Mr S. Mundy - Headteacher
