Dear Parents & Carers

Next week is a busy one. We have the Friends of Myton School (FOMS) AGM on Monday. The Friends of Myton School are a group of parents who raise money for resources over and above those which the school provides. In doing so, they improve the experience of all students in the school, who get to use the audio visual equipment in the music and drama departments, or the handheld devices in their maths lessons, for example. I would like to thank FOMS for their work over the last year and the time and effort they put into supporting Myton School. There will be numerous fundraising events throughout the year organised by FOMS and it is they who sell the refreshments at our productions and other evenings. If you are interested in joining FOMS please contact foms@myton.co.uk or come along to the AGM at 7pm on Monday in our Conference Room. (more…)

General News

Doing our bit to reduce waste

We have been working with our catering suppliers to reduce the amount of waste, especially plastic, in school. All the containers on our salad bar are reusable, all our food waste is separated and broken down to make a bio gas which is used to generate electricity and heating, and our cooking oil is turned into biodiesel. In addition, we have installed some extra water fountains around school to encourage students to use refillable water bottles rather than buying single-use drinks bottles. (more…)

A level Art Trip to Birmingham

Our Year 12 artists went on a trip to Birmingham on Thursday 13 September. The purpose of the trip was to hone their sketchbook and observation skills and develop some work on the ‘urban environment’. They went to the Custard Factory and then walked through Birmingham towards Centenary Square, ending up on top of the new library building. They made panoramic drawings of the Bull Ring and the view from the top of the library, as well as charcoal sketches and taking photographs. We look forward to seeing the work that emerges from this experience.
