Announcements

Request for office furniture

Mrs Johnson in our English Department is keen to run an experiment with some of our students who prefer to stand rather than sit at their desks. She is looking for a lectern and/or a movable or angled desk. If anyone knows of an office that might be having a refit and getting rid of anything like this, please contact her on johnson.h@myton.co.uk. Many thanks.

Fifty things to do before you leave Myton

We hope your children are enjoying tackling some of the ‘Fifty Things’ challenges and that it has been a good experience so far. Just a note that if your child has already completed any of the challenges before the wall charts were sent out they are perfectly entitled to show them as done on their wall chart.

Tennis success for Sam

Congratulations to Sam in Year 10 who recently competed in the Tennis Progress Tour in Spain. Despite being the youngest competitor there, he won all his qualifying games to get onto the main draw where he was narrowly defeated in a tie break by a 20-year-old German player who is ranked in the top 1000 in the world!

He then came home to win a couple of men’s titles in the UK. What an achievement!
