Head Teacher
Calling All Parents!
 
Welcome to my new blog!
 
I have to start by saying what a great school this is. The dedication and expertise of our staff is second to none, the spirit and personalities of our students are just wonderful and the support we have from parents and the local community is exceptional. There is a great feeling in the school; a sense of belonging, pride and co-operation; an understanding that we really will achieve more together.
 
It’s been a brilliant start to the year – we challenged the students on the first day back to become ‘outstanding learners’; to be resilient when things get tough and to understand that effort leads to success. I have to say that they have responded superbly well. They’ve come back with real belief and determination to succeed. Long may it continue!
 
Since our summer celebrations of outstanding GCSE and A Level results we have been given even more reason to rejoice as Student Performance at A Level has been ranked in the top 25% of the country for another year! May I thank all the staff and parents involved in this success and congratulate the students, many of whom are starting their first year of university this week (all but one getting their first choice university)!
 
Mrs Birkbeck has launched a new and improved version of our Community Awards, details of which can be found on the website. These changes came about through the hard work of our Student Council who wanted to make it more challenging and more akin to the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. We are sure many of the students will take up the challenge and gain their Bronze, Silver, Gold or even Platinum awards by the end of the year.
 
We have our Open Evening next week and we warmly welcome all current Year 6 students and their parents to come along to see what we have to offer. As always our students are keen to get involved as ambassadors for the school. We literally have hundreds of students acting as guides and hosts, many of whom are our Year 7s having only been with us a short while! May I take this opportunity to thank them in advance as I know they will represent the school exceptionally well.
 
As I wrote in my first Head Teacher’s letter last week I am committed to developing the partnership between school and home even further. If you have any suggestions or ideas on how we can get even better from your point of view please may I encourage you to contact us. Parents are crucial in ensuring the success of our students and we really do want to work with you.
 
I hope you find this blog a useful insight into school life. Don’t forget you can follow us on twitter too!
 
Best wishes,
Alex Lingard
Head Teacher
