This week, Year 11 have been busy considering their mock examination results, predicted results and next steps in education. It has been interesting to speak to them all.
On Tuesday evening, we held our Into the Sixth evening at school and this seemed to go very well. Last year we had to resort to a virtual event and whilst this worked well, the ability for students to see the Sixth Form facilities and listen to subject talks live this year was very well received. A large number of external students looked around the school and we anticipate another strong cohort of Sixth Form students next September.
Next Thursday, we have Extended Learning Day 3. The programme includes a variety of activities for each year group as follows:
Year 7 – Mathematics
Year 8 – Geography/Science
Year 9 – Holocaust
Year 10 – Study Skills and Higher Education
Year 11 – You’re Hired
Year 12 – Citizenship
Year 13 – Study skills.
I would like to thank all of the staff involved for organising these activities, and Ms Borman for coordinating the day. I am sure it will go really well.
Our next school show, ‘Velocity’ is not far away so if you are interested in coming along, tickets are available from the SandPit Box Office. It will be another stunning event and something not to be missed.
Every two years we run a major whole-school survey of staff, students and parents to establish how well we are doing. Mr. Nicholls will be leading on this again, so watch out for further information. We hope that as many of you as possible are able to take part to help us gain a full picture of life at Sandringham.
Mr A Gray
