Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

We really enjoyed seeing our Year 11s and their parents this week. Parents’ Evening for this year group is always a busy night with a lot of information to give out. This half term seems to have gone by in the blink of an eye and the next one will too. It is, therefore, important that Year 11 students take advantage of all the support in place for them.

There is a range of revision classes in school which, although already well attended, still have places available. On Wednesday night we gave out a booklet of information on preparing for exams and there are fantastic resources online for students to use. (more…)

Announcements

Leave of absence form

A reminder that if you want to apply for your child to be absent from school you must use the leave of absence form on our website at least six weeks before a possible absence. We will respond to you within 14 days of receiving your request.


Christmas card competition

It’s that time of year again! Fancy winning a prize and having your design used as the Myton School Christmas Card 2017? To enter simply create an A5 (half of the standard A4 paper size) Christmas card design in a flat medium (no collage) using pencil, paint, felt tip pens, etc. No message to be included, just artwork (with your name and form in pencil on the back). Paper and advice – if you need either – are available from Mr Meredith.

Final designs to Mr Meredith by Friday 10 November.  (more…)

Year 7 Disco

Our Year 7 Disco on Thursday evening proved to be a big success.

Director of Key Stage 3 Curriculum, Emma Atkins, said “It was great to see so many students getting together with friends, having fun and celebrating their first half term at Myton. This year group have settled in really well to life at Myton and, although we know the first half term at secondary school can be exhausting, it was nice to see they still had plenty of energy for the dance floor!” (more…)

Year 11 Practice Interviews

On Monday 16 and Tuesday 17 October we invited over 40 local employers into school to conduct practice interviews with our Year 11 students, giving them valuable experience and offering some useful feedback to help them when they face a real life interview in the future.

Initial feedback was extremely positive: students said they valued the experience and found it really helpful. Likewise, the employers were impressed with the students, applauding their preparation, presentation and enthusiasm. (more…)
