Silent Auction – Win a Signed Wayne Rooney Shirt!

Tutor group 9ML have persuaded England’s all-time record goalscorer, Wayne Rooney, to donate a signed Everton shirt to the school for the Pitch In! campaign.

The students will be holding an auction in the run up to Christmas and we will give the shirt to the person who makes the highest bid by 12pm on Thursday 21st December. It could make a fantastic Christmas present for someone!

The auction will work on a ‘sealed bid’ basis. Please email your highest bid to pitchin@lymmhigh.org.uk  by the deadline and we will contact you if you have been successful. The amount people have bid will be kept private.

Mr Williams is a keen Everton fan and has started the bidding at £150, so we can reveal that you will need to bid more than that if you are to win this fabulous item!

 

LHS named as one of top North West schools in Sunday Times Schools Guide

The Sunday Times has recently published its list of the highest achieving schools in the UK, with Lymm High School being ranked as the 6th highest performing comprehensive school in the whole of the North West, and the 24th highest even when selective grammar schools are included. The list takes account of the numbers of students gaining the highest grades at both GCSE and A’ level. Mr Williams said:

“Whilst we are not driven by performance in league tables – and certainly not these particular ones – this news does further underline the fact that we have made massive progress over the last couple of years and are certainly now one of the highest performing schools in the region. In a week when I’ve witnessed incredible performances of our students in Les Miserables as well as watching the first XV winning the semi-final of the Cheshire Cup, I am feeling especially proud of all our students and staff.”

Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award

We launched Gold DofE this week to interested Year 12 students, and we urge all students to consider getting involved in an extremely worthwhile and valued award. Please check carefully the expedition dates and ensure that your child can commit fully to all aspects of the award before returning the reply slip and deposit to secure a place. For students who have not previously completed Silver DofE, the Gold Award will take 18 months minimum, for students who have done Silver it will be 12 months minimum. Letters will be available from Monday 30th October from Sixth Form Student Services.
