The final Praise Bulletin of the term!
Dear Parents and Students,
This is our final praise bulletin of the term. It has been an incredibly challenging time over the last four months, however, despite your individual circumstances so many of you have continued to be motivated to work hard, submit work to your teachers, engage with new learning platforms like MS Teams, involve yourselves with family projects and attended face to face lessons in school. I have been continually impressed by your commitment and resilience throughout this time. I now hope you will be able to relax over the summer holidays; maybe keep up some reading or project you’re interested in and be excited to return to school in September to see all your friends and teachers, who have definitely missed seeing and teaching you. With best wishes, Ms Tovey.
Below are the departmental comments from staff, individually praising you for your hard work.
Modern Foreign Languages
All the Year 9s who attended my MS Teams lesson last Thursday were brilliant! They participated fully and we all really enjoyed it.
Lots of brilliant Year 7 and Year 8 students, in particular:
Well done everyone!
This week I have been particularly impressed with the commitment and enthusiasm that the following students have shown in Drama. Students had to prepare a monologue to be performed via Microsoft Teams. A very difficult and challenging task to do.
Year 10 students:
I can say I was extremely proud and impressed by their individual efforts! Well done.
Visual Arts Department
Thank you to all the students who have continually worked hard and forwarded work during lockdown. It has been very impressive to see the quality and variety of work produced.
Listed below are the following students who have gone above and beyond in sending in work regularly.
I know we will want to display all work that has been done over this period so please can all students keep all work safe and bring it into school when we return in September.
I would like to also take this opportunity to thank the Visual Arts Department: Mrs Campbell, Mrs Gate, Mrs Woods, Miss Titchfield, Mr Smith, Mrs Wagstaff and Miss Sulek, for all their enthusiasm and hard work, not only in school, but working long hours at home to provide art, textiles and graphics provision, feedback and support to all students on a daily basis.
I wish you all the very best of health and hope you all have a very safe and happy summer holiday and look forward to seeing all students back in September.

Niamh (10.2) - Well done on the work that you have created during lockdown Niamh, it has been great for me to be able to mark your electronic portfolio and to give you feedback this term.

I am already looking forward to seeing the next pieces that you submit.
