Welcome to my blog.
I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year, and a well-earned rest!
It has been wonderful to have our students back in school.
This week, students have really adapted to coming in at different times and on different days to have their Covid tests. They have been patient, responsible and sensible. Thank you everyone.
Although the threat of a snow day loomed and nearly foiled our plans, today, a group of our Year 8 students went to watch Sleeping Beauty at the Alhambra in Bradford. When Year 9 students went a few months ago, they did themselves and the school proud with their exemplary behaviour. I am sure Year 8 will do just the same. I will share pictures and an update with you next week!
Attendance at the Year 11 period 6 sessions has been really good this week. Please keep it up. Mock exams are coming up for all of Year 11 in February. It is really important to attend in order to catch up, if necessary and consolidate learning.
Looking to next week, Year 11 and Year 13 will be starting their vocational exams. Students have been working really hard, but they need to ensure they remain focused and continue revising over the weekend and during the exam period, please.
Have a nice weekend.
Mr Richardson
Sleeping Beauty
