Mrs A Bass
Head Of Year 9
Thank you to those of you who joined us for another successful Parent's Information Evening on Tuesday 19th September. I hope you found the evening informative and that you feel prepared for the year ahead as your daughter begins her GCSE journey.
Below, you will find the presentation that was shown during the evening, so if you weren't able to join us, please do have a look through and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
I've been particularly impressed with the way in which Year 9 have approached their GCSE's so far. There has been a vibrant atmosphere within the year group over the first couple of weeks with the prospect of starting new subjects. As I have been visiting classrooms to check on the culture and climate of lessons, students have shown a clear sense of pride, excitement and interest in what they're learning. A great start to the school year, well done Year 9!
We are excited to announce that author Holly Bourne will be talking to Year 9 students on Monday 25th September about her 'Spinster Club' series of books, and why we need feminism.
At the beginning of P3, Year 9 students will go to Cockcroft Hall, instead of their usual lesson, where they will enjoy this fantastic talk from Holly.
Holly will also be signing books in the library over lunchtime, where there will be the opportunity for students to purchase her books. Please see the letter below for more information.
