Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

Last night, in spite of the terrible weather, 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.

We’re grateful to the students from our Sixth Form Senate leadership team and our student subject ambassadors who were on hand to give a flavour of life in the sixth form and highlight their personal experiences of the subjects we have on offer. Through this collaboration we hope we have helped the Year 11 students to make those all-important subject option choices. (more…)


Announcements

Inclusion Tutor Vacancy

We are recruiting an Inclusion Tutor to help some of our more challenging students inside and outside the classroom to enable them to engage with and participate fully in school. The job involves overseeing the progress of selected students, addressing barriers to learning, planning interventions and liaising with teaching staff and parents/carers.

If you know anyone who might be interested, we’d be grateful if you could share this with them. All the details are on our website: Inclusion Tutor vacancy. Many thanks.

Safety in St Nick’s Park

If your child walks or cycles to school through St Nicholas’ Park in Warwick, you will be well aware that there has been flooding this week. Can we please ask you to talk to your child about the importance of avoiding floodwater and river banks. It’s very easy to slip on wet ground and we know that one of our students had a near miss this week. Accidents can happen easily; let’s make sure that our children stay safe.


Events

Careers Fair for Years 9-13

We will be running our popular annual Careers Fair in school on Tuesday 26 November during the school day and over lunchtime, giving students a chance to explore different career options with a wide range of exhibitors.

It’s open to all students in Years 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13. The event is in the Upper School Hall and the Girls’ Gym and students will have a chance to meet representatives from a range of industries, apprenticeship providers, universities and colleges.

Youth Speaks Debating Competition

You may remember how well the Myton teams did in last year’s Youth Speaks debating competition. Well, it’s time to get this year’s teams up and running. If your child is interested in being part of this public speaking debate team (open to all years 7 to 13), please tell them to come along to a meeting in E1 on Thursday 21 November at lunchtime – and bring their lunch! Any questions, please speak to Mrs Heggs or Mrs Fearn.
