Headlines

Welcome back everyone and I hope you all enjoyed the half term break.

As mentioned previously, this is a very busy final half-term of the year. We are eagerly awaiting the announcement on Monday about any changes to restrictions from 21st June, as this will affect some of our plans for events due to take place. Once we know the final direction of travel, we can finalise our plans and let you know exactly what is happening. Keep an eye open for direct e-mails, the school website and this Sandprint for updates.

At this time of the year, some of our ex-students who have been studying at University are graduating and it would be great to hear any of these so that we can celebrate their successes. If you are able to send them in to the admin email then we can publish them next week.

Staff have now finalised Teacher Assessed Grades for all of our examination students in years 11, 12 and 13. We are now in the process of final checking before uploading this data to the examination boards next week. The deadline for this submission is next Friday. I would like to put on record how proud we are of these students who have embraced the very different way of assessing this year incredibly positively, and to all of the staff for an immense amount of work that would normally be done by the examination boards. As a reminder, staff have set assessment papers, marked them, moderated them and then finalised grades for every student. What you may not know is that we still have to pay the examination boards around £80,000 this year, despite the fact that all of this work has been done by school staff. I'm not sure this is fair and as a school, we have made representations about this (as have many other schools).

Our lovely Year 10 and 12 students are sitting their end of year examinations over the next two weeks so I would like to wish them all the very best of luck with these.

Best wishes,

Mr A Gray
Headteacher

SIXTH FORM NEWS

A huge congratulations to Year 12 students, Nabrissa B and Justus B, who have secured a place in the tenth cohort of the Sutton Trust US Programme, run in partnership between the Sutton Trust and the US-UK Fulbright Commission. The Programme allows high-attaining low and middle income UK students to explore US higher education and apply for admission to top US universities.

Entry to the programme is highly competitive and Nabrissa and Justus were chosen from more than 1000 of the UK’s brightest students to be one of the 150 scholars and are our first students to have secured a place on the programme.  We are extremely proud of their hard work and achievement.

Speaking of their achievements, Justus said, “This is an incredible opportunity to explore studying in America, and who knows what the future of my Sutton Trust journey could bring” and Nabrissa commented, “I am honoured to be a part of the programme and I am really excited to see how far I can progress in the admissions process”.

The students receive guidance and advice from the UK-based team, enabling them to explore US higher education and learn more about the application process. All students will take an American university admissions exam, the ACT, preparation for which is included as part of the programme’s support.

Later this year, Nabrissa and Justus will choose if they would like to continue to make applications to US universities alongside their UK applications. This second part of the programme includes admissions guidance from the Fulbright team, including university choices and support with applications and financial aid processes. This is a lot of additional work on top of A-level studies and we wish them both lots of luck and look forward to following their progress!

A THANK YOU

Sandringham School was delighted to support the FSCI Christmas Box Appeal last year. Thank you to all those families who made the commitment of time and money in such challenging circumstances, to contribute a box. Thousands of children and families in institutions, kindergartens and schools in poor rural and urban areas, senior citizens homes, Roma communities, protected homes and refugee centres throughout Bulgaria received Christmas presents as a result of the generosity of those taking part in the appeal, with a total 6,492 boxes distributed.

Teodora Koleva, Director of FSCI Bulgaria, is in no doubt about the importance of the project. He recently contacted us to say- “With these presents, we show the most vulnerable children and families that we think of them and believe in them, even more so in these challenging times. Thank you to everybody who contributed to the appeal once again!”

COVID made for a very different feel to this year’s campaign. Rich Parsons, the project leader also wrote to tell us, “It was a real relief to see all your Christmas boxes arrive in Bulgaria after being delayed because of COVID and other things beyond our control. Despite all the difficulties, we were encouraged by our wonderful volunteers who helped to check and pack all the boxes, and of course by the number of presents we received from our amazing supporters, many of whom were only too pleased to be doing something to help others during this difficult period”.

Thank you again for helping (our school) to be part of this!

THEME WEEK : WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY

This week for our whole school theme we recognised World Environment Day which is held on June 5th every year to raise awareness of specific environmental issues. 143 countries take part in World Environment Day, focusing on environmental concerns ranging from pollution, to global warming and sustainable food production, to protection of wildlife. This year’s theme is Ecosystem restoration. The students received an excellent assembly from Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Mouncey, educating them about the importance of halting and reversing the impact of humanity on ecosystems. Sandringham has set itself a sustainability goal to achieve net carbon zero by 2030 and increase biodiversity at Sandringham to help address the global challenges of climate change and empower young people to affect change in the future. We encourage you all to become part of #generationrestoration and do your bit to support World Environment Day!

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS NEWS

During Mental Health Awareness Week, students in Years 7-12 were encouraged to write positive messages to comfort and inspire others.

A huge thank you to Mr Kemp for running the initiative and Mrs Warris for creating the beautiful display. We hope that the messages provide encouragement and comfort to students when they need it.

MATHEMATICS NEWS

In April, over 120 students in Years 7 and 8 took part in the Junior Mathematical Challenge run by the UK Mathematics Trust.  The aim of the UK Mathematics Trust is to advance the education of young people in mathematics. The Junior Mathematical Challenge is a 60-minute, multiple-choice competition aimed at students across the UK. It is open to all students in years 8 and below.  This was a fantastic opportunity which offers students the chance to develop their mathematical problem-solving skills. It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.  The problems on the Junior Challenge are designed to make students think. Most are accessible, yet still challenge those with more experience. 

Students that perform well are awarded Gold, Silver or Bronze certificates, with the best performing students being invited to take an additional challenge. 

Overall the school was awarded 6 Gold, 26 Silver and 44 Bronze winners.  Special mention goes to Henry T (7E) and Tevaan H (7T) (joint best in school), and Adam K (8T) (best in Year 8). Congratulations to all those that took part.

LRC NEWS

Here at Sandringham, we are commited to raising awareness about environmental issues and as such, would like to highlight a new book about the climate crisis and hidden voices. Zaynab is from Somaliland, a country that doesn’t exist because of politics and may soon be no more than a desert. Lucas is from rural Devon, which might as well be a world away. When they meet, they discover a common cause: the climate crisis.
Together they overcome their differences to build a Fridays For Future group at their school and fight for their right to protest and make a real impact on the local community. But when Zaynab uncovers a plot which could destroy the environment and people's lives back home in Somaliland, she will stop at nothing to expose it. Lucas must decide if he is with her or against her – even if Zaynab's actions may prove dangerous. Students can borrow this book from the library now.

CHARACTER OF THE WEEK: RACHEL CARSON

E2 in the Science Block is named after Rachel Carson, one of the most important conservationists in history. Her research helped nationwide ban on dangerous pesticides and her other books also helped inspire the creation of the US Environmental Protection Agency.

Born on a large farm in Pennsylvania on 27th May 1907, Carson took an early interest in nature, animals and the ocean. She majored in Biology at the Pennsylvania College for Women and later got a Masters degree in Zoology.

Carson was passionate about conservation and spent time teaching, doing weekly radio shows and writing on the subject. She became concerned about the effects that large scale spraying of DDT pesticide had on the health of people as well as the environment and published her findings in the book Silent Spring. Although she sadly passed away in 1964, her work led to the banning of DDT in 1973 and her concern over regulating pesticides was influential in the creation of the  Environmental Protection Agency. She was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1980 and is now widely recognised as the mother of modern environmentalism, initiating a crucial wake-up call for the environmental movement.

WORD OF THE WEEK TRANSLATED

FRENCH: Le mot de la semaine : le nadir

GERMAN: Die Wort der Woche : der Nadir

SPANISH: La palabra de la semana :  el nadir

Thinking questions :

  • All three translations this week are masculine nouns. Why might this be? Why do some languages have gendered nouns?
  • All translations of the word of the week are the same – do you know the origin of the word of the week, why do all these languages use the same word?

CRICKET

On Tuesday, the U14 Cricket team went to Parmiters for their Plate competition fixture. After losing the toss the boys were put into bat first. Some strong batting and good running saw us post 125 for 4 wickets. Henry P-B top scored with 40 runs. Opening the batting and staying in for the whole innings was a testament to how sensibly he batted. A superb innings. Our bowling innings started well, reducing the opposition to 16 for 2 after 3 overs and managing to bowl out the opposition. It was pleasing to see such a variety of dismissals – Bowled, Stumped, Caught and Run out. The highlight of our bowling innings was Everitt’s bowling, taking 4 wickets. A remarkable display of leg spin bowling. Well done to all involved.

Wednesday saw our Year 7’s go over to Beaumont for their second game of the season. We started superbly, with some excellent bowling, taking early wickets. However Beaumont had a solid partnership that we couldn’t break. A total of 132 was posted that we had to chase down. Similar to our bowling innings our batting innings started well, scoring well and playing good cricket. As we began to lose wickets and the run rate creeping up ultimately it was too much to ask. A promising display from the U12’s. I am excited about how far this year group can go should they continue to commit to School Cricket.

Congratulations to Marelie R in Year 9 who had a fantastic half-term competing in various events. She won the Ladies regional Grade 3 event in Weald, 18U Girls regional Grade 3 event in Huntingdon, and won an 18U regional Gr 3 Doubles event as well as being a semi-finalist in the Women's Regional Gr 3 Doubles events in Woking. Playing on a mixture of astro, hard acrylic, clay and even some grass courts was certainly a challenge and her achievements were topped off with a call up to the Gr 1 Junior Nationals Qualifying event being played in Surbiton.  Well done to Marelie for these fantastic achievements.

ATHLETICS

There has been more sport this week as restrictions continue to lift. It has been great to see so many students returning to competitive action, whilst also retaining so many students at extra curricular clubs.

On Thursday we had our 3rd County league Athletics match at Westminster Lodge. It was another excellent afternoon of athletics with all 4 teams competing very well against some strong opposition. Again Jasmine R ran exceptionally well in the 100m to break the school record. The boys relay teams remain unbeaten as they took another two victories. It has been fantastic to see the teams be so successful after having such an extended period of time away from the sport.

Mr A Cracknell

TENNIS

The girls tennis teams have been in action again this week with the Year 10 team beating Haileybury quite comfortably on Tuesday, before losing to Queenswood along with the Year 8 team on Wednesday. Well done on such a good performance on Tuesday. Marelie R led the team and played very well in both singles and doubles.
