Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

Next Thursday evening between 5.30pm and 8pm we will be welcoming Year 11 families from Myton and the surrounding area into school to showcase our Sixth Form. Our post-16 provision is a real strength of the school. The most recent Ofsted inspection found it ‘Outstanding’, commenting on the fact that, “Students make excellent progress”, they “achieve well across the full range of subjects” and “are excellent role models for younger pupils”.

This year we are launching a number of exciting new courses to further broaden our academic offering. Alongside our well-established and highly successful A level subjects, students will be able to select courses in Criminology, Forensic and Applied Science, Computer Games Production and Film & Media Studies. Some of these new courses have entry requirements starting at GCSE level 4, making them accessible to a wider range of students. The full list of courses on offer are detailed in the Sixth Form prospectus (which will be available on the night) and also on our website. (more…)


GCSE English Revision Cards

If you have ordered and paid for English GCSE revision cards, these are now available for collection from the Finance Office. Please ask your child to come along and collect them at break or lunchtime. Thank you.

Music clubs

Our Music Department run a busy timetable of clubs during lunchtimes and after-school. See Ms Harrisson if you have questions about any of the following: (more…)

Parking near school

We have again been contacted by our neighbours about parents parking inconsiderately while waiting for their children to come out of school. This week, on Ashley Crescent, the traffic was apparently down to single file due to a badly parked car.

Can we please ask you to park considerately, or even better, to consider parking further away from the school and letting your child walk part of the way.

Residents have been advised by Warwickshire Police to contact Warwickshire County Council so we expect to see Enforcement Officers being sent to the area at the start and end of the school day. More information about parking is on the Warwickshire Police website.

Sixth Form Football team loses on penalties

The sixth form football team went to Kenilworth this week to play in the County Cup and, having taken the lead and stayed in the lead for most of the game, conceded a late goal in the final minutes of the game.

This led to penalties and unfortunately Myton missed just one of the penalties, to lose the fixture.
