Headteacher's Blog 21/05/2021

Welcome to my blog.
This week, some of our Year 10 students took part in a NextGen Nurse workshop delivered by NHS Healthcare Professionals. Here is the brief of the project:
A brand-new workshop designed in partnership with the NHS aimed at encouraging more students to consider a career in nursing. The workshop will look to dispel and debunk the myths about the sector and inform young people about the amazing opportunities that being a nurse can offer.
Feedback from the workshop was great with one student saying: 
'I enjoyed the session about nursing because it helped me to understand more about what the profession was and the paths, I could take to get into it. It also helped me because I am unsure what path I want to take as I have many interests, so it widened my understanding of this one. I am definitely leaning towards nursing
As you will have seen from communications from school this week, we have had a small number of positive Covid cases within school. Please remind your child to undertake their lateral flow tests twice every week and to maintain a safe social distance wherever possible.
Finally, I wanted to let you know that we are recruiting. If you are interested in any of the posts below and would like to work in a school that is all about aspiration and never accepting second best, please take a look and apply.
Our ethos is centred on every student enjoying learning and expecting success!
