Iceland Day 3

It’s been a wonderful day on the South Shore of Iceland!

We saw two magnificent waterfalls – Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss, a beautiful glacier and the basalt columns on the beach at Vik.

Iceland Trip – Day 2

Year 13 started their day relaxing in the geothermally heated outdoor pool at the Secret Lagoon. We experienced all weathers on the Golden Circle tour today, visiting Gulfoss, Strokkur Geysir and Thingvellir – where two tectonic plates meet!

Iceland trip

The Iceland trip has arrived safely and we’re enjoying a windy view of Reykjavik from the Perlan Centre!

Year 13 have had a great start to Iceland trip today, spending time experiencing the sights of Reykjavik. They’ve also braved the outside pool this evening! 

Sixth Form Student Success

Wellbeing “Mentor of the Month”

In December, we launched a new student leadership opportunity for Sixth Form students to become trained “Wellbeing Mentors” to support lower school peers across years 7-11.

Students meet fortnightly on a day 8 to connect with each other and discuss academic progress, their general wellbeing and any other areas students may want to discuss such as Relationships Education. This is supported by our Head Students, several of our Wellbeing Team society members who have become mentors and Heads of Year who are able to refer students to the programme. All “Wellbeing Mentors” have received in house training from our Designated Safeguarding Lead, Miss Harwood to ensure they are fully aware of safeguarding protocols to keep others safe but also key safeguarding content such as sexual harassment, violence and abuse. We will also be arranging for external training to support our mentors further.

Take a look at our first Year 12 Mentor of the Month for January!

Year 12 and 13 PPE weekly countdown… the exams are here!

Over the last 5 weeks, we have been supporting the Sixth Form students with understanding the importance and process of revision. All students have received an assembly each week, promoting a different key “theme” to focus on implementing during their revision journey.

We have been really impressed by effort and standard of the revision materials which have been produced. Take a look at some of the excellent examples of revision tools in the photos. Well done all, keep up the revision year 12 & 13! Best of luck to all year 12 and 13 students for their PPEs over the next two weeks.
