Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents & Carers

This has been a great week for compliments. Our school open evening on Wednesday was very busy and successful with over 450 families visiting us. The visitors were all really positive about the school and our staff but particularly about the students who worked with us that evening to show off their school. I would like to thank all the students who helped, the staff for their hard work and our visitors for their kind words.

I would also like to thank all the volunteers from local businesses who joined us on Thursday when we had our Year 11 mock interviews. We’re really grateful to them for giving up their time to put our students through their paces. The feedback about our students was tremendous which I am delighted about. I have great faith in our students and their learning and I know they involve themselves in interesting activities in and out of school. However, I do not always have faith that they are able to articulate these things in an interview or boast about themselves as they need to in these situations. Therefore, to have such positive feedback from employers is very encouraging and bodes well for their future. (more…)


Announcements

Rugby High School Consultation on Admissions

Rugby High School has published its proposed admissions policy for 2021 entry and all local schools have been asked to make parents aware of the change. The consultation period will run until 12 November 2019. You can find out more about the changes and how to comment on the Rugby High School website.

Cycling to and from school

Please could we ask for your support in ensuring that students who cycle to school do so safely. They should use the cycle path and not cycle down the middle of residential streets or cut across our neighbours’ driveways. Please also stress the importance of treating others with respect and consideration. Thank you for your support with this.


Events

Geography in the News Club

This week Miss Nagra kicked off her new ‘Geography in the News’ club. It is going to run every Thursday lunchtime in G4 and the aim is to make people aware of what is going on in the world by running a fun newspaper. The students will research stories and find images from around the world and report on things such as natural disasters, climate change and geopolitics – just like journalists.

Students are welcome to bring their lunch along with them and there will be snacks available too!

Orienteering at St Nicholas Park

We’ve been contacted by the Octavian Droobers Orienteering Club about two new orienteering courses that have been established at St Nicholas Park in Warwick. The courses are free to use and the maps can either be downloaded or are available at local venues. See the flyer for more details: Orienteering at St Nicholas Park Warwick
