Message from the Headteacher

Monday 9 September 2019

 

All students started the new academic year with eagerness and focus last week. It was lovely to hear students' stories from the summer holidays and to meet our new Year 7 students.

This week we welcome Year 10 parents and carers for our Information Evening, as they embark on their GCSE studies. This evening starts at 7.00p.m. and is expected to be no more than an hour in length. Refreshments will be available from 6.30p.m. We know that students are most successful when we work together, in partnership and we hope that this evening will help share that recipe for success in the two years ahead.

Year 10 students have their first curriculum-based trip of the year as they head to Felixstowe to take inspiration from the coastal and industrial landscape. Trips and visits form an important part of our curriculum, giving students opportunities to learn about the world around them and contextualise what they do in the classroom.

Over the summer, our Year 11 students of 2018 have received their GCSE results and once again have done wonderfully well. We see once more in their results that hard work pays off and commitment and enthusiasm across the five years of High School makes all the difference to the results that are achieved. We are proud of all our students have achieved this year, once more making us top in Suffolk.

80% of students achieved Grade 4+ in English and Mathematics

71% of students achieved Grade 5+ in English and Mathematics

40% of all grades achieved by students were Grade 7 to 9

Once again, staff and students have grappled, and mastered, the challenges of the  new, demanding GCSE examinations. We are pleased to see that hard work and dedication has been rewarded in their grades.Whilst we are in our third year of the new GCSE examinations, comparison to previous years is difficult, however it appears as though as well as pleasing raw scores, students in this year group have made excellent progress from their starting points.

Staff work hard to prepare students for their examinations, as well as ensuring the wider more holistic development of the child. We are delighted that we send out into the next stage of their life, capable young people, who will make a positive mark on the world.
