We had a full house for the Year 11 Graduation Evening on Thursday night, well over 450, students, staff, parents and significant others. A very emotive evening for all concerned, thank you to everyone involved and we all wish the students the best of luck in the upcoming exams. We have just placed an updated pdf Top Tips for Examination Success (2.29 MB) on our web site, this will be very useful for both parents and students.
Student of the Week goes to George Burke for winning the hammer in the Hampshire Athletics Championships, Lili Kilshaw, for coming 1st in her heat and 5th in the finals in the Hampshire Athletics Championships and Razvan Roman for coming 3rd in the 1500m in the Hampshire Athletics Championships.
Team of the Week goes to The Class of 2017 - current Year 11 for showing so much respect and maturity over the last few days.
For parents of Year 10 and 11 students, as we approach the exam season we would like to guide you to our school website where we have placed a document on how to prepare for exams, a pdf timetable to map the learners’ time (600 KB) wisely and a pdf good food eating video link with (246 KB) ideas and recipes to keep learners nourished and focused for their exams. We hope it gives you some additional tips to support your child as they are busy doing last minute cramming! I am getting flooded with compliments about how well our Year 10 students are doing on their Trident Work Experience placements. Well done to them and also good luck to them with their English exams next week. We also have Activities Week to look forward to next week, with 9 off island trips along with numerous activities both in school and on the island. I am keeping my fingers crossed for good weather.
...and a reminder from the PTA, PTA Race night at the Ambassadeur Hotel starting at 7:00, Friday 19th May, everyone is welcome.
