Over the past fortnight there has been much to celebrate. On Tuesday 15 November the PE department hosted their annual Sports Awards Evening. Being a trained PE teacher and having spent much of my early career fostering a love of sport in young people, this event is always particularly enjoyable.
Another busy fortnight has passed following the autumn break. Year 9 have been exposed to the various curriculum pathways and new specifications that they might study in Years 10 and 11, with staff offering sample lessons and sharing the types of learning that students might expect. Beginning this process now invites students to discuss future career aspirations with their tutor, subject teachers, our external careers advisor, parents/carers and fellow tutees who have already been through this process, well in advance of the KS4 Pathways Evening in January 2017.
