Year 11 students have been given a letter about GCSE revision sessions on Saturday mornings. To help students achieve their MEG within the forthcoming GCSE examinations we will be holding Saturday revision sessions, these will commence after the February half term break. To help the school to ensure that the correct number of teachers are available for each date it is vital that you fill out the form (Letter can be downloaded HERE) to indicate your attendance at each session. Please remember that running a Saturday session involves a cost to the school and relies on your teachers giving up their free time, therefore please only indicate your attendance if you fully intend to turn up on the day.Read more »
Twelve Year 10 students recently took part in the Brilliant Club which involved the students going to Lancaster University for a launch trip before taking part in six tutorials in school whilst completing their own research on a STEM topic involving cyber security. The students then had to write a 2000 word assignment which was marked at University level.
All of the students submitted excellent, well researched assignments and passed with flying colours. Six of our students received a first class grade which is the highest possible grade, These were Kate Wheatley, Megan Doughty, Matthew Jennings, Reece Brown, Karlie-Anne Bisset and Amy Tennant.
The students will attend a graduation ceremony at Liverpool University in the coming weeks to receive their certificates and celebrate this fantastic achievement. As the students did so well, they have been asked to read parts of their assignment in a presentation during the graduation.
Miss Kenyon said 'I and all the maths staff are so proud of the 12 students who completed their assignment. They all did fantastically well and received the grades they worked hard for. We are also incredibly proud that they have been chosen to read extracts from their assignments at their graduation.'
