Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents & Carers

My usual end-of-half-term weekly news thanks everybody for their hard work and wishes you all well for the week off school. A mere thanks for this half term doesn’t quite seem enough. Our students have adapted and shown resilience in getting back to their studies in new ways, especially Year 13 who have got stuck into their Teams lessons this last week or so; staff have adapted to the new scheduling, zoning and online lessons and have worked very hard to make sure learning time isn’t lost; and you have been very, very supportive as parents, sending really nice messages into school and showing incredible understanding when we have had to send home groups of students. I offer my very sincere thanks to all stakeholders of Myton School for making this half term successful. (more…)

Would you like to design the official Myton School Christmas Card for 2020? To enter, simply create an A5 (half of the standard A4 paper size) original design in a flat medium (no collage) using pencil, paint, felt tip pens, etc. You can also choose to use original photography or digital art software. No message to be included, just artwork (with your name and form in pencil on the back). Paper and advice – if you need either – are available from any of the art teachers. (more…)

Face masks

Please can we remind you to make sure that your child has a mask when they come to school. We do have spares in school but these are paid for out of the school budget and we’re getting through them at a fast rate. Thank you.
