Today we have held a minute’s silence for a much-loved colleague and friend John Berry. John was our site supervisor and sadly passed away earlier this week after suffering a sudden heart attack. We will be holding a memorial service in school at some point during the summer term. Our thoughts and very best wishes are with the family he leaves behind.
A group of Year 12 and Year 11 History students have come together to create the school’s first online history magazine, Insight into History. The latest issue, released yesterday, has a theme of evil figures in History and features Pablo Escobar, Charles Manson and the Yorkshire Ripper.
In each issue ‘The interview’ reveals the opinions from some of Lymm High’s staff members. In the latest issue, Mrs Jennings focuses on the psychology behind evil and answers the question: What has a greater impact on making a person evil – is it nature or nurture?
Previous issues of the online magazine have focused on the quest for global equality, the Royal family and the 2020 election in America. To view the latest issue, click here.
This week our students have been trying to guess which member of staff is behind the mask. A video of each of the contestants singing, dancing or acting is being shown during Form times.
Forms will guess who each of the masked performers are and will then vote for their favourite. There will be a prize for the student or Form who guesses the most correctly.
The deadline for voting is Sunday night and the performers are going to be unmasked next week and the winner announced!

This is a full school day for students, but without ‘normal lessons’. It will be a day for students, without their teachers, that will involve a reduction in screen use. Instead, they will do a series of challenges, which will require thought, energy, skill, creativity and compassion.
