Due to Year 12 parents’ evening the Year 8 History and Geography trip meeting will now take place at 6pm, in the Main Hall, Tuesday 21st March and not 23rd March.
The Gardening Club is run by Student Services as one of the interventions used to support students in KS3. The allotment requires funds to cover the annual costs of materials and maintenance, to this end we try to raise as much as we can through the sale of bedding plants and hanging baskets. If you usually buy plants or hanging baskets for your garden, please click HERE and give our order form the once over, there are some great deals to be had!!
Year 8 students will be having a special day, when their normal timetable will be suspended, on either February 3rd or 13th. The students have been informed which day they are affected. On this day they should come to school as usual in full uniform and with their pencil cases. They will not need their exercise books.
The day is part of our personal, social, health and sex and relationships education offer. If you have any questions over the day please contact either Ms O’Grady or Mr Spencer.
Shortly before Christmas 148 parents of Year 7 students kindly completed a questionnaire giving us feedback on the transition process. You can read details, including our response to the issues raised, by clicking HERE.
Overall, the results were exceptionally positive: for example, 97% of parents say their child has settled well since September and 98% would recommend Lymm High School to other parents. We will never be complacent about identifying areas in which we can improve further, but it was very pleasing to see how happy Year 7 parents evidently are about the way the school has looked after their children during the first few months of secondary school.
