Congratulations to the following students who have been chosen by Heads of Year to receive the Learner of the Week award:
Year 7 - Tori Preece. Tori was nominated by her English teacher, Mr Clay, for being consistently enthusiastic, conscientious and always producing her best work in class.
Year 8 - Abi Pilmer. Abi did an outstanding evaluation of her refraction experiment in Science. She also represented the school hockey team this week and has nearly 100 achievement logs and 0 behaviour logs. Abi is an absolute pleasure to have in Year 8.
Year 9 - Patryk Kapalka. Patryk was nominated as he is working so enthusiastically on ‘Of Mice & Men’, reading aloud and talking about the story. He has also done some amazing analysis, exploring how the writer presents the characters’ dreams. He was so proud of his work on Monday (after he’d analysed how the fire burning down could symbolise the fading American Dream) that he wanted to take his book home so that he could write more and show his family. He’s gaining real confidence and is rightly very proud of his achievements.
Year 10 - Holly Watson Holly was nominated for showing a real commitment to improvement in History. She saw how she could improve an examination answer to get a higher grade and started to apply it on another similarly worded question. Good resilience and great attitude.
Year 11 - Ewan Westgate. Ewan was nominated for completing his GCSE Music composition to a very high standard. He has also worked very hard on his performance coursework. Ewan has been studying GCSE Music in his own time after school and shows great dedication and enthusiasm to the subject. I am very impressed with his work ethic!
Year 12 - Emily Hilton. Emily was nominated for her excellent work ethic and enthusiasm in the Extended Project that she is completing. She comes into class and just gets on with the work – the work she has produced so far is very good and shows great promise. Well done, Emily !
Year 13 - Bethany Rutherford. Bethany was nominated for her excellent mock exam result for the Anatomy and Physiology unit in Health & Social Care. She got an A and it was very evident that she had spent a lot of time revising. This should boost her confidence as she keeps telling me she can’t do Science – clearly she can!
