Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents & Carers

You should have received a letter from me today outlining our plans for September. This letter details the school day, the use of zones and bubbles, some curriculum information and further information about transport and hygiene. I’m sure people will have lots of questions, however please hold fire until the beginning of the term when we will properly introduce all students and parents to our new procedures. As I mentioned last week, it will be full uniform, full days and a full curriculum taught by the specialist teachers our students would have had anyway. As long as students are ready, dressed correctly, know when and where they have to be, have all their equipment in their bags and understand the rules around clean hands and hygiene, they will do well.

Music lessons

Do you want to learn a musical instrument? Lessons will be starting again next term and tuition is for all levels including beginners. Due to current circumstances we can only offer individual music lessons during the autumn term, although if your child wants to learn the steel pans, small groups of students from the same year group will be possible. All the information is available on our website: Music tuition. (more…)

Myton Masterclass – summer learning

To support your child’s learning over the summer, we’ve put together a series of videos and activities for them to have a go at.

We’re asking them to start with the English, maths and science activities then move on to others if they have time. We’ve also provided links to additional online learning resources if they run out of things to do.

To access the activities they will need to click on this link: Myton Masterclass then sign in with their usual school username (eg 14A.name@myton.co.uk) and password.

We’re sending this to them on Show My Homework too.
