Congratulations to our Y13 students!

Congratulations to our Y13 students who, after a nervous wait, collected their results today. It was lovely to share their joy and we are delighted that all those who wanted to go to university have secured a place, and that all those who are starting apprenticeships also got the grades that they needed.

Some individual success stories were Iona King, our Head Girl who achieved an A* in Geography and English Language ,and A in English Literature. She will be reading Geography at Royal Holloway and is well on her way to achieving her ambition of being a Geography teacher!

Dan Emery achieved A in Maths and Further Maths and C in Physics. Dan will be starting an apprenticeship at AWE. Sasha Bonewell, our Deputy Head Girl, achieved Distinction* in Performing Arts, A in English Language and B in Business. She will be following Dance Studies at the University of Buckinghamshire.

Our overall pass rate was 96% A*-E and once again there were a significant number of subjects that achieved a 100% pass rate including Performing Arts, English Language, English Literature, Further Maths, Media Studies and Sociology. Our new AS Criminology course also achieved a 100% pass rate.

Ben Stephenson, Head of Sixth Form –

It has been a pleasure working with this small cohort of students and sharing their success with them. All of the students leaving us have developed into fine young adults and have plans in place for the next stage, whether it be an apprenticeship, university or the world of work. A number of our students have exceeded their target grades due to the dedication they have shown to their studies this past two years and I am sure they will continue to achieve in the future. Our year 12 cohort have also gained some impressive results which puts them in a great position for next summer.

Request from our Local Community Police Team

Police have been made aware of a photograph of a local male (Great Hollands) that is being circulated on Facebook and has a caption accusing him of being a Paedophile. This man and his family have also become the target of criminal damage and threatening behaviour by local youths and parents. The Police have looked into this and there are no concerns regarding this man and it has been established that he is, in fact, himself vulnerable. The Police would like to remind our communities that if you have concerns about an individual that the appropriate course of action is to contact the Police and not to take matters into your own hands. Damage and violence will not be tolerated and if the persons responsible for targeting this family are identified then they will be spoken to. As parents, it is important that you teach your children the appropriate way to deal with issues and who to contact for help and it your responsibility to set a good example for them.

Ex Head Girl success

Congratulation to ex-head girl Hollie who celebrated the end of her first year of studying Law at Kent University by receiving an award for the best performing student in her courses.

Hollie said, “Thank you to the school and especially Mrs Ayliffe and everything she did, as my writing skills are a key part of helping me to achieve and setting me up to do this well!”

 

We are very proud of Hollie and it is great to see our alumni doing so well.

Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award Expedition

Congratulations to our EPCS6 Duke of Edinburgh team who have all passed their final assessment.
A few weeks ago our expedition team completed their practice expedition in the beautiful hills around Newbury. They battled 30-degree heat, nettle stings and hay fever and camped over night cooking their own meal outdoors, a first for most! This set them up well to pass their final expedition this weekend in the South Downs.
A huge thank you to Mrs Stevinson and Miss Murphy for accompanying them and well done in particular to Chloe (Year 12) who had to head straight into London after the expedition to start a week of work experience with KPMG!
