At school it has perhaps been the quietest week of the year as many year groups have gone out and done trips. We’ve had daily updates from Paris, where Year 7 are having “une semaine magnifique”, Year 8 in Wales, one so busy they’ve hardly sent me photos at all! Certainly when they get back and discover their incredible Common Entrance results they will be jumping for joy, as indeed are we and we congratulate perhaps the most successful Year 8 yet on their spectacular A* heavy results.
Of course the pupils don’t get these results without very hard work and effective learning techniques, support from home and of course outstanding teaching. I’m delighted by what has been achieved and congratulate my colleagues.
For me, highlights this week have been seeing Year 2 and Year 3 scurrying about collaboratively, looking for clues in their treasure hunt, getting incredible feedback from the trainers in Legoland robotics about how advanced and well mannered our digital leaders were, enjoying some pretty good singing at the community choir rehearsal, as well as polished performances in the Performance Platform in Pre-Prep this morning, it’s always fund to see the children in the audience responding to the rhythm by bobbing up and down appreciatively. The children all did well. I also enjoyed receiving day by day excellent CE results for our Year 8.
