Weekly Message

As we near the end of a short but busy term, the school is recognising the successes of pupils during Celebration Assemblies. Due to take place this week and next, it is an ideal opportunity to reflect on the many achievements of our amazing pupils.

Next week, Year 10 get a taste of what life will be like after school as they take part in a week-long work experience. Good luck to all of those involved.

The school is also running an enrichment day on Tuesday 27 March. Years 7-9 will be looking at aspects of the PSHE curriculum, including self-esteem, the dangers of substance abuse and issues relating to mental health. Year 11 have a tailored day which is focussed on the GCSE exams which begin in May. They will be working on exam skills as well as working with the amazing and inspirational Mr Beezy. He was a huge hit with last year’s Year 11 and we are looking forward to working with him again next week.



Cams Hill Book Worms

This week, Year 7 pupils Grace Deane and Caitlin Marks launched Cams Hill Book Worms, the new Library book club for year 7.

Caitlin and Grace have worked very hard, recruiting members, contacting tutors and choosing a book. The chosen title is “Apple and Rain” by Sarah Crossan, a story of sad endings, happy beginnings and family.

The group meet during period 5 on Fridays, for discussion, reading aloud and book sharing. Librarian Mrs Fargher supplies comfy chairs, biscuits and juice!

There is a waiting list in the Library for interested pupils, as the group is currently at full capacity!
