Key Stage 4 Matters Evening
– On Thursday 1st October we will be hosting our annual Key Stage 4 Matters Evening for students and parents/carers in Years 10 and 11 to support students and families through their crucial years in school. The Evening will start at 6:00pm and last for approximately two hours. This will be an opportunity to receive information about key dates for the year ahead, coursework deadlines, revision techniques and exam preparation. There will also be representatives from most of the major post-16 providers in the local area. For more information about the Evening, please contact Mrs L. Farrell. We look forward to seeing you on the night.
Aspire Channel Swim 2015
– Lorcan Jackson, a Year 8 student, is participating in the Aspire Channel Swim 2015 to raise money for people with spinal cord injuries. Lorcan and his mum started the challenge on Monday 14th September and are aiming to swim the length of the English Channel (22 miles) over a period of 12 weeks, which equates to 1416 lengths of a 25m pool. Lorcan has recently been joined by his friend Teddy Smalley, another Year 8 student, and so far they have swum 220 lengths! Well done to all those taking part in this amazing challenge. We will keep you updated on Lorcan and Teddy’s progress. More information on the Aspire Channel Swim can be found at: www.aspirechannelswim.co.uk and donations can be made via http://www.justgiving.com/lorcanjamesjacksonaspire153.
