Blog week ending 8th October

Posted on: 08/10/2021

Our Year 9 Students Leaders have been continuing with their Leadership Qualification Course and will be able to put their new-found skills and experience to work as they will be leading the tours around school during our Open Events.  Our Student Leaders will be talking to prospective parents, carers and Year 6 students to give them an insight into our wonderful school and answer any questions they may have about lessons or school ethos. 

Please note that school will finish at 2.30pm on Monday 11th October to allow us to prepare for our annual Year 6 Open Evening.  Students may remain on site until 3.30pm but please be aware there will be no homework club.

Today we took part in the #HelloYellow day in support of the charity Young Minds.  Staff and students wore a yellow item to show their support and raise valuable funds!  Thank you to all those who took part to celebrate the little things we can all do to look after ourselves and each other’s mental health – all contributions no matter how small can make a big difference!

We are pleased to invite you to a financial capability session for your children to be run by the HSBC UK Education team.

We know young people & parents lead very busy lives. That can mean it’s hard to find time for financial learning.

Contactless, digital and mobile banking are increasing the invisibility of money, making it even harder to build financial confidence. But our financial education programme can help you to overcome those challenges, whether at home or in the classroom.

The session is entitled Banking 101, this session helps support the understanding of the basics of banking, borrowing, saving and why getting a bank account is important. The lesson will be delivered via Zoom on Tuesday 19th October 2021 at 17:00pm, lasting 60 minutes.  This session is suitable for children aged 11-16+
