As we approach the end of term I would like to thank all parents and carers for your support in your child's education and for your contribution to school improvement. The end of the academic year is a good time to reflect on what has gone well, what needs to improve and refresh hearts and minds ready for September.

Our termly magazine 'celebrating success' will be with you at the end of this week. We will also be sending out every student's termly grades. Please discuss your child's grades with them and particularly talk through the areas they need to improve upon. Students should all be able to confidently talk about their strengths and weaknesses. Please also encourage your child to read over the summer holiday. Next term we have a really important strategy being developed and implemented by Ms Barnes and the staff, to encourage greater reading and particularly reading for pleasure. This will involve a number of exciting events, so watch this space!

Next academic year, we are also focusing on developing student's writing skills. It is a wonderful accomplishment that several students have again had work published. This time the project was run by Goldsmiths widening participation team and the department of educational studies. The anthology 'Places of Power' is written by London students from various schools. I am very proud to celebrate students whose work will be published. It is an incredible achievement and their work is absolutely amazing. Well done to the following:

  • Location - by Alexander Kirby, Year 8
  • Timely Reflections - by Sumayyah Sadeer - Year 9
  • Light on my back - by Joanna Tsitashvili - Year 7
  • Happiness – by Amber Cray - Year 7
  • Once upon a time - by Siobhan Cardy - Year 9
  • Anticipation - by Nesrine Zigadi - Year 8

Last week we had a number of great events which were really successful. Urban Synergy delivered their role model seminar in school for students from Year 8-10. Students got the opportunity to meet highly ambitious professionals and hear how they got into their career. The seminar and panel included:

  • Stephen Akinsanya - Criminal Barrister
  • Colin Donaldson - British Airways Pilot
  • Dr. Donald Palmer - Associate Professor of Immunology, Royal College of Veterinary Science, University of London
  • Dawn Goring - Executive Assistant & Office Manager at the Prime Minister's Press Office, 10 Downing Street
  • Daniel Taylor - Founder & C.E.O MDC (Metro Design Consultancy) Interior design company.

The seminar also featured some other amazing role models, such as: Fashion stylist, Ford engineer, Property developer, Project Manager, Economist, Fireman/Station Manager, Police Sergeant, Financial Controller, Lead Consultant, RAF World War 2 Veteran.

We are very grateful to Urban Synergy and Ms Ramsey who coordinated this event and to the professionals who gave up their free time to meet our young people.

This week we celebrated an incredible sports day at Sutcliffe Park. It was a great day. The sun gave us a bit of a breather, thankfully! Students and staff came together, cheered each other on, and celebrated inclusion and participation as well as competition. Some of the athletes were incredible. It was also fantastic to see so many parents at the event. See Sports Day overleaf.

As we have reached the final week of term there are a number of reward trips to theme parks as well as a Year 10 A level taster session at Sedgehill, which we hope students will learn a lot from.

We look forward to our awards evening and summer music concert this week as well as the end of term. The final day of term will be a non uniform day in aid of cancer research, as requested by Hayz-Anne, Zakarua and Sanaa in Year 10. Students will be required to pay £2 for non uniform.

Enjoy a restful summer holiday.

Dr S. Mundy - Headteacher
