Head Teacher's Message

Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers

Last night we held a Halloween disco for our Year 7 students to celebrate their first half term at Myton. A big thank you to our PTA – the Friends of Myton School – for organising the event and to all the sixth formers who turned up en masse to help supervise (and impress us with their moves on the dance floor). It was a really successful evening, the students had a great time and behaved brilliantly.

The disco is just one event in the PTA’s calendar and they have big plans for the year to come. At last week’s AGM a new committee was elected and I would like to thank Jon Chambers who stood down as Chair after giving two years of his time and expertise to the school. Congratulations to the new Chair, Mark Simmons who is a Teaching Assistant in our LINC and a Myton parent. (more…)


Final call for Imagineering Club

Would any students in Years 7, 8 & 9 who want to join the Imagineering Club please see Mr Hobbs or Mrs Snelson in the Science Department. The club will take place after school on Tuesdays, and you get the chance to build your own electric cars and solar powered machines from kits which you can take home.

What's on this week

Year 7 attend diversity workshops

On Friday 25 October our Year 7 students took part in workshops delivered by an organisation called Diversity Role Models. These are designed to equip them with the skills to recognise, prevent and challenge gender and sexuality-based bullying and discrimination. Students had the chance to explore stereotypes and address misconceptions around gender and sexuality with volunteers from different careers and walks of life who are part of the LGBT+ community.

Year 12 photographers experiment with light painting

Our Year 12 Photography A level students have been having lots of fun recently exploring the theme of ‘Time’ within their work. In a recent practical session they experimented light painting with different coloured lights and wands and we thought you might like to see some of the results. (more…)
