As part of his award, Jack raised over £500 doing the Tour de Yorkshire in memory of his granddad. During the training for this event, he came off his bike and broke both his arm and his leg but remained undeterred to complete the challenge! (more…)

Join Myton’s Eco Team

Would you like to make real changes in school and the wider community to reduce our impact on the environment? Well here’s your chance. Myton’s Eco Team are looking for new members. They meet every week 1 lunchtime in S5 and students from all year groups, including sixth form, are welcome. This is a chance to do something good as well as an opportunity to add to your CV. Our first aim is to get ‘ecoschool’ status for Myton. Mr Hobbs and the rest of the team look forward to seeing you after Easter.

Sixth Form life skills

Our sixth formers attended two separate sessions this week as part of their programme of enrichment. One group experienced a hard-hitting presentation by the Warwickshire Fire Service on road safety and another got stuck into some practical first aid training. Both sessions were incredibly useful and may even prove life-saving.

Sixth Form Road Safety Awareness

This week, our Year 12 students attended a Road Safety session run by Warwickshire County Council. They discussed the common distractions and other factors that can lead to car accidents and were able to experience a simulation of an accident through 360 headsets. This was a really important session and, although hard hitting and difficult, we hope it will cause students to stop, think and act safely when they are out and about in cars.

French students celebrate Mardi Gras

Mr Stone and his Year 12 language students celebrated Mardi Gras on Tuesday 5 March by making ‘les crêpes’ and writing up their recipes in French. Ooh la la!
