Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear parents and carers

Today we say goodbye to some of our colleagues.

Tracy Moore in the Sixth Form cafe is moving on to a more senior position at another school and I thank her for her great work. She has provided a lot of support and a friendly face to our sixth formers who will really miss her. We also say goodbye to Ian Cook from the Geography department who has secured a position at the Environment Agency. We wish him well.

From Student Support, Jayne Carter is retiring. Jayne has worked here for 15 years and has looked after the students who are injured or ill, chased them up about attendance and has been, along with Mrs Adkins, the ‘go-to’ person for all students in our school. (more…)

End of an Era – A message from Claire Round

After 33 years of utter loyalty and commitment to Myton School, I would like to let you know that I am retiring on Friday 17th February.

I asked for a quiet end to the half term and the doors remain open for me to return to Myton at some time in the future. For now, it is time to put my own health, after my two major hip operations, and my wonderful family first. (more…)


How to teach children about strangers

In school, we do not teach blanket ‘stranger danger’ messages to the students.

World Book Day 2017

This year’s World Book Day on Thursday 2nd March will again be a whole school event. We will be running a non-uniform day and students should come dressed as a fictional character from a book or a film and bring in their favourite book to share with other students during form time.

Please make a £1 voluntary contribution (via ParentPay) which will go towards a literacy charity to enhance literacy opportunities for students in other countries.

Other events we’ll be running in honour of World Book Day are: (more…)

Today we were delighted to welcome into school the RSC Education Department who have been working with some of our Year 9 students on The Tempest. The students were selected for their fabulous work on the Shakespeare unit, and were given the chance to explore the play in more depth, acting out some of the scenarios and back stories of the major characters.

Well done to Tom Nayler and the students in M9 who have raised £50 for Cancer Research with their ‘Sweet Jar’ competition. The winners are: Mr Rosenbaum (and his mathematical formula!) and Luca Cugini in 6L2.
