Homework Expectations

See link below for a copy of a letter that was sent home on 15th September, via Show My Homework. It contains information regarding expectations and frequency of homework for your son or daughter as they enter a new year.  Please support the staff in maintaining these high expectations by taking a few minutes to read the letter.

Year 11 Information and Guidance Evening

Year 11 Information and Guidance Evening for parents will take place on Wednesday 28th September, 6-7pm in the main school hall.

Information provided on the evening will cover: exams, controlled assessments, revision, student support, sixth form and more.

Tassomai Science Programme

We have just received the codes for Year 11 subscriptions to Tassomai for all students who paid last term. These are currently being printed and will be distributed to relevant students by Form Tutors on Tuesday morning. If your child does not receive theirs, please ask them to go to Student Services and let them know.

Regarding the Year 10 codes, we were in contact with the company all last week and again today; they are trying to iron out some teething problems with the new specifications but are aiming to get codes to us for our Year 10 students this week. We will keep you posted via Parent Communication with further information and can only apologise for the delay.

School Improvement Plan Update

Last summer, I published a three year School Improvement Plan following extensive consultation with students, staff and parents; this has been on the website all year. I have now added a review against each area of the Plan, which you can read here (the review comments are in red font). It may take a few minutes to read, but I encourage you to set aside some time to do so. We have had a really successful year and there can be no question that the school is improving rapidly. It was nice to see that the editor of Lymm Life referred recently to a “feel good factor” returning to the school and that seems to sum things up very well. I will always try hard to avoid the trap of over-stating how well things are going, but I will say that I could not be more pleased with the progress made this year. We are very heavily over-subscribed for September, staff morale is good and the foundations are now in place to really push forward. Thank you all very much indeed for your continued support.
