Dear Parents and Carers

I hope you all had a pleasant half term and enjoyed the jubilee weekend.  I have to say that the this was something that I enjoyed far more than I expected to and speaking to many students here, they did too.  Lots of street parties attended, some garage parties due to the rain and many other events with one or two students recounting their tales of being in London for the celebrations.  Some time ago, we were approached by a journalist with the Sunday Times to help with an article on how relevant the monarchy is to students.  She had interviewed students in several schools around the West Midlands so we were keen to take part.  We found a group of highly articulate Year 12 students who had a fantastic debate with the journalist for an hour or so expressing a real balance of views.  Unfortunately, when the article was printed, only one quote from the hour’s debate was used which fitted the narrative that the monarchy is completely irrelevant to our fairly hard left, highly republican youth.  (more…)

New Nurture Sign made by Myton Students

We are really pleased with our new Nurture sign.  This is made from mini bathroom tiles and the students who helped with this were Riley F, Riley A, Leo, Charlie, Nathan, Louie Mae, Freya and Liam and what a good job they have done!   The sign is now proudly attached to the fence outside the Inclusion Centre.

Well done and thank you to all involved.

Yr 12 WORK EXPERIENCE

With careful planning, and some gentle encouragement, our Year 12 students completed their work experience week between 23 and 27 May.

The week offered students the freedom and opportunity to develop their professional skills, and explore some interesting future careers in readiness for the all important job, apprenticeship, and university applications.

Compared to the mostly online-only work experience week from 2021, this year saw businesses open their doors for more ‘hands-on’ placements, according to Mr Garner, Head of Year 12 and Assistant Head of Sixth Form. (more…)
