Message from the acting Headteacher
This term students have explored the idea of having the right mind-set to be a better learner and improve progress. We have been considering why particular people have become successful in life as well as the importance of overcoming barriers; putting in maximum effort and welcoming challenges. Our Y7s certainly seem to have a growth mind-set and have continued their fantastic start.
Y10s and Y11s have worked well and are continuing the options courses that they started in June. Revision sessions are already up and running in a number of subjects and a good number of Y11 students attend revision in Maths on Tuesday evenings. Next half term we would also welcome any Y10s who want to attend. Our English department have carried out specific improvement sessions for controlled assessment and Mr Lovelady, our Head of English held an evening for Y11 parents to come into school on the 9th October.
Of course the news about a consultation for closure has upset our staff and students. Glenburn is a school at the heart of this community and that feeling has come through loud and clear in messages of support from parents and the community, for example #SaveGlenburnSC. There is also an active Facebook group with over a thousand members. It is credit to both the staff and students that they have remained focused and continue to work hard in spite of this unexpected announcement. Please remember this is a consultation and not a decision, and families who have chosen Glenburn obviously still have a place for their child.
Please attend one of the Parents’ Information Evenings on Tuesday 4th November (Y7 and Y9) or Thursday 6th November (Y8 and Y10). Parents and students can find out how to make your views about the proposals heard.
If you would like to visit our school, or there is anything we can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your support.
