Head Teacher's Message

Dear Parents and Carers

This week has seen a busy programme of extra-curricular activities in school. On Thursday, our Year 11 were given a break from their mock exams in order to benefit from some career enrichment. They all attended mock interviews with local employers and were able to practise their interview skills and receive valuable feedback on their strengths and areas for improvement. They attended workshops with representatives from a range of different sectors. A special mention goes to former Myton student, Jack Dudley, now a fully qualified paramedic working in Northamptonshire who is always willing to come back into school to enthuse fellow students about his chosen career.

Our Year 9 students were able to benefit from a session run by an external agency, Loudmouth Education & Training who are safeguarding specialists. They ran an awareness and prevention programme on child sexual exploitation, using theatre in order to engage the students in discussions about grooming, online safety and consent. (more…)

This week we took a team of students to Sheffield to compete in round 1 of the Squash National Championships. Many of the team have only been playing for a few months but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They did really well, finishing third and going through to the Plate Finals.

As an added bonus, they met ex world number 1, Nick Matthew and Scotland number 1, Greg Lobban: a photo opportunity not to be missed!
