Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Today is Year 13’s last day on formal timetable before they move onto their revision schedule to prepare for the remaining A level exams. On behalf of the governors and all the staff here at Myton, I wish them well through this busy exam period and on whichever pathway they have chosen. It is a pleasure to work with Year 13. They are young adults, full of potential, and I have made no secret of my jealousy of them, starting out on the most exciting bit of life: university in most cases but also employment and apprenticeships. I suspect some of their leavers’ assembly today will be spent looking at pictures of them when they arrived nearly seven years ago as 11 year old kids – I hope it is both nostalgic and highly embarrassing.

Bumper Book Swap

Our library staff, helped by a team of student volunteers, held a successful Book Swap in school on Thursday 25 May. Students brought along books they had read and swapped them for books recommended by other students and discontinued titles from the library. There was a great selection of books available and many students picked up some welcome half term holiday reading. Thank you to everyone involved in organising the event.


Spring term award winners for excellence in design

Our Design & Technology Department at Myton has just announced the latest winners of their D&T Excellence Awards. Well done to all of those students whose work has been chosen and watch this space for next term’s award winners.
