Headteacher's Weekly Update

This week has seen the start of the formal exam season for Year 11 students and they have made an excellent start to these. They are smiling as they enter the hall, feeling confident about their preparation, and have come out smiling too which boosts their confidence about other exams to follow. The school has a very purposeful feel; not only are Year 11 revising for and taking exams but our other years are too and are conducting themselves very impressively.

Tetrahedron Challenge!

Form groups were set the task of producing a giant tetrahedron. The purpose of this was to show what we can do together, to be the best we can be, by using the principles of STEM as the driving force. Each tutor group was given enough dowel and elastic bands to make between two and four mini tetrahedrons. These in turn made a medium sized tetrahedron to be placed together to form one big one! Tutor groups had 20 minutes to build their mini tetrahedrons following some simple instructions given in an assembly.  Year 9 Prefects helped Years 7 & 8 and the Year 10 Student Leadership Team constructed the giant final tetrahedron.  

Despite some wet and wild weather, this task was completed in less than 60 minutes, split across the week. It just goes to show that from a simple concept, something bigger and more powerful can be the end result! Well done to all who took part.
