Sixth Formers have been able to take advantage of an in-school seminar called ‘Ace Your Exams.’
The session for 140 students was run by Elevate Education and covered exam preparation, fixing mistakes to ensure constant improvement, time allocation during exam preparation and techniques for managing stress and time pressure in exams. It consolidated the work on revision year 13 had done in form time and was a good reminder/confidence booster for students to help them in the run up to exams.
Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Stevens, said feedback from students was good with most saying they would recommend the session to a friend.
There is a follow up session for a few who missed the seminar, on Tuesday 5 April, entitled ‘Finishing Line.’ If any Year 13 students who missed this first session would like to take part, please contact email@example.com
It is National Apprenticeship Week between 7 and 13 February and the Sixth Form team is encouraging students to look into the options open to them.
There are some fantastic, free virtual events scheduled – during lesson time, in the evenings and over the weekend – which include short, introductory talks about apprenticeships, employability tips, and conversations with real-world employers and apprentices. (more…)

You may remember we told you about A level Film and Media student, Oliver F who was shortlisted by the examination board for best music video. Monday 15 February is the final awards ceremony and we wish him the very best of luck.
The competition recognises inspiring levels of student achievement in Film and Media and his music video for Caravan Palace – Supersonics is one of only two to be shortlisted nationally. It was his first music video and his first time using the animation software, so this video is an incredible achievement by a very talented student.
A number of our sixth form students have undertaken training to become Dementia Friends as part of a collaboration between Myton School and local healthcare charity and training provider, Kissing it Better.
The students have written and taken part in a live Zoom quiz and written/read poems to the residents of Priors House Care Home in Leamington. They have marked Valentine’s Day by making Valentines hearts and crafts for Leamington and Warwick Hospitals. (more…)
This is the time of year when many of our Year 13 students are receiving offers of further education and training, and firming up their plans for what comes next after Myton. Over the next few weeks we thought we’d share a selection with you.
This week, congratulations go to Lara H and Chloe W who have both been offered apprenticeships. (more…)
Congratulations to Imogen M and Molly L in Year 12 who have launched their fabulous new arts and media-based YOUTH Magazine for young people.
The magazine features articles about all things creative plus reviews of films, books, fashion and music. The students were interviewed this week on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire by presenter Trish Adudu. They explained that they were keen to keep busy and stay positive during lockdown and so came up with the idea of the magazine as a way of showcasing and sharing the things they love in a creative way.

On Thursday 28 January, five members of Myton’s Year 12 Politics group (Jayden H, Emily A, Poppy B, Alfie B and Alex E) had an hour-long FaceTime chat with Peter Hitchens, the renowned journalist and controversial author.
Jayden sent Hitchens an unsolicited invitation and was surprised when he accepted. During their conversation, they discussed drug policy, crime and punishment as well as other current issues. Afterwards, Jayden received an email from Hitchens stating how much he had enjoyed the hour spent with the students and what a pleasure it had been. Congratulations to all involved.
Congratulations to Grace and Emma in Year 13 who have both been offered places at Oxbridge. Grace is hoping to study English Literature at Oxford University and Emma is hoping to study History at Cambridge. Well done to both of you!
