What a great start to the academic year from Year 8.
“And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings”
This quote has been embodied by our Years 8’s. Well done to Mr Hand’s 8C form group for achieving Form Group of the Week. They had a fantastic first day back earning the most achievement points in their year group. Enjoy your chocolates!
The start of Year 8 has been fantastic, with a record number of students being nominated at the start of the year. Well done to the following students on their nominations so far; Jamaine Roberts, Jack Clifton, Szymon Blasiak and Thomas Taylor. Names are still being sent in and the winners will be announced in next week’s assembly.
After a successful start to the term, I am happy to award 8E with the attendance certificate for having the best attendance. By getting to school on time every day, students will feel better prepared and more engaged in lessons. This will result in better student performance and positively impact their marks. Continue to set those alarms and get to school on time-- your achievement depends on it!
To date, Year 8 are making me proud to be their ATL. Remember, be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing. Well done again!
