Message from the acting Headteacher
As well as improved progress in lesson there have been many extra-curricular events to celebrate this half term. We had the Riot Act in school delivering safety information in the form of a play for year 7. We had some good news when the year 10 football team reached the West Lancashire cup final by winning a nail biting penalty shootout. Sadly we lost the final 3 goals to 1, although the boys did play brilliantly. There was also good support from the touchlines representing both schools.
A number of students have been busy with an after school code breaking competition. This involved cracking complex codes and some students showed great commitment to the cause, not to mention intelligence! I would also like to congratulate Dwayne in Y10 who is now the North of England schoolboy boxing champion which is a fantastic achievement. Charlotte has been busy baking this term, firstly raising money for the Down’s Syndrome Association and secondly for Comic Relief.
Our most exciting event this half term was on the 20th March. We all got involved on the day and I have to say that we used a number of methods to safely view the eclipse. I think my personal favourite was Callum’s use of the colander. We also now have photographic evidence that Mr Day is good at Physics.
Both Y10 and Y11 students have GCSE exams this year and the exam timetable can be viewed here. Y10 students have exams in Science and option subjects in May and June. I am pleased to tell you that one of our ex-students Leah Wright has been offered a place at Cambridge University to study History.
