Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

We are approaching our mock exam season now and our Year 11s are getting ready to sit a series of tough exams in preparation for the real thing in the summer. This year, we are taking a different approach and are joining over 1,000 other schools in sitting the same exam papers at the same time. This will not only give the students their practice and our teachers the knowledge of which skills students need to be retaught, it will also show us how our students are achieving compared to those in the other 1,000 schools. Reports will be generated for the schools showing which skills we must develop and a report will go to every student sitting these mock exams giving them clear guidance on the specific topics they must revise.

Announcements

Parking near school

We have again been contacted by our neighbours who live in the roads near the school about parents’ cars blocking junctions and entrances to their drives, restricting visibility for other road users and causing near misses.

Please use common sense and consideration for our neighbours and other road users when parking near school. If you can, please park further away from the school and let your child walk the short distance to your car.

Well done to Thomas White in Year 9 who organised a cake sale in the Development Centre on Friday 17 November. The sale raised over £200, half of which will be donated to Children in Need and the other half will go to the Children’s Unit at the Walsgrave Hospital where Thomas underwent surgery earlier this year. Congratulations to Leah Collis in Year 10 who won the raffle.


Sixth Form Open Evening

Many thanks to everyone who attended our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 16 November. We were delighted to welcome such a large number of Year 11 students both from Myton and the surrounding area. We hope the evening provided students and parents with a useful insight into what our sixth form offers students in their progression from post-16 to post-18 education.

Grace wins poetry prize

A group of students from Myton School is currently taking part in the Warwickshire Year 9 Book Awards. Warwickshire Schools Library Service launched the awards with a speed dating event where the students from Warwickshire schools were asked to choose their own shortlist of 4 books to read. They then took part in a competition to write a poem about the event or one of the books. Year 9 student Grace Thompson’s poem about Ink by Alicia Broadway was chosen as a winner. Well done to Grace who won a WHSmith voucher.


Geography Student of the Half Term

Congratulations to Jess Fear, our first winner of Geography Student of the Half Term.

Each week all staff in the Geography Department nominate a student for effort or a particularly impressive piece of work. These students all receive a certificate. We then do a draw of all nominees and award the lucky winner a £15 Amazon voucher. Well done to Jess and all the students nominated so far.


Year 7 Cupcake Challenge a great success

On Wednesday 15 November our Year 7s took part in a Cupcake Challenge event designed to develop a range of skills including: listening, presenting, problem solving, creativity, staying positive, aiming high, leadership and teamwork.

They were tasked with creating and marketing a new range of cupcakes and packaging for a specific target market. (more…)


Sports News

Next week’s sports clubs

Please check the PE boards, our online sports calendar and @MytonPE Twitter account for details of next week’s practices and matches.


Key Stage 3 Girls Badminton teams compete in District School Games

Myton fielded two girls teams in this week’s Key Stage 3 Badminton School Games tournament. The competition was hotly contested, with Myton A team finishing second behind Kingsley School (who Myton A team beat in the round robin stage of the competition). This hopefully should mean that we go forward to compete in the Warwickshire School Games event next year.

The B team also played well to finish fourth. The Key Stage 4 team will compete next Wednesday in their tournament.

Anyone interested in badminton can come along to our club every Wednesday lunchtime in the Sports Hall. Also, Warwickshire are running a restricted singles tournament in Warwick on Saturday 25 November at St Nick’s, please see Miss Cole for details.


Victory for U16 Mixed Hockey

Well done to the U16 A & B 7-a-side teams who were victorious this week in their round robin tournament at North Leamington School. They won their matches to finish first and second place without conceding any goals in the games.

The next Hockey match is Monday 20 November for the U13 Girls teams against Kingsley School.


Sports leaders support netball event

Well done to the Myton sports leaders who supported a SEND Active netball event in school on Friday 17 November. The students who took part played really well and enjoyed the event and the Myton students who lead it were highly praised by the event organisers and all the participating schools.


Year 7 Basketball Victory

Congratulations to the Year 7 Basketball team who beat Campion School 22 points to 8 points in their first league game of the season. They played extremely well and thoroughly deserved their victory. The boys were fantastic ambassadors for the school.
