    This week: Examination Results, Cry-Baby, Special Activities

    Examination Results

    Congratulations to all our Year Eleven and Sixth Form students on exceptional sets of examination results. GCSE and A level qualifications have been reformed, so teachers and students were working to new syllabuses with exams at the end of two years and far less coursework. Teachers had no past papers to show to students, and no store of previous students’ work to assist with understanding the new grading systems. Despite this, students and teachers worked together to enjoy learning the new curriculum content and to make sure students were brilliantly well-prepared for the examination experience.

    As a result, our students were celebrating spectacular exam grades in August - well done to them, their teachers and parents for all the hard work that made this happen.

    See below for an overview of the results, and visit the website for more detail.

     

    Cry-Baby

    The cast, musicians, production team and crew made this year’s summer musical a truly thrilling occasion. Tensions were rising between The Squares and The Drapes - what on earth could bring them together? Only love, of course.

    The music was joyous and fresh, the performances combined great teamwork with marvellous comic timing and the set, costumes and make-up made the experience a real visual feast.

    Expert musical and dramatic direction from our tireless teachers made this a most inspiring educational experience for our students and a superbly entertaining evening for the audience.

    Many thanks to all.

     

    Special Activities

    Video production, clay modelling, mindfulness, oil painting, boating, camping, designing and making in textiles - these were just some of the special activities that girls in Years Seven, Eight and Nine enjoyed in the last days of the summer term. Teachers gave their time and expertise to enable students in years seven to nine to develop new skills or pursue a particular interest which isn’t normally covered in school.

    The students participated with great energy and enthusiasm, and teachers reported that they thoroughly enjoyed the new experiences on offer.
