Headteacher's Weekly Message: 20th April 2018

Earth Day 2018 – Sarah Bonnell pledges to give a helping hand

The Summer Term got off to a great start on Monday with Geography Leaders promoting the importance of Earth Day 2018 by having an interactive display in the Piazza, delivering assemblies and organising a lunch-time stall.  Thank you to Ms Hart, Geography Teacher and the Geography Leaders for getting Sarah Bonnell to think of things we can do now to protect the globe from further environmental damage. Be Nice and Be Proud

Childnet Digital Leaders – great recognition

Sarah Bonnell’s famous Digital Leaders were praised again by Childnet this week. Charlotte Mugarra D’Cruze wrote to say ‘another huge thanks for hosting us the other week.  We had such a fantastic time meeting the Digital Leaders and seeing some of the amazing work you have been doing.  We couldn’t quite believe how detailed and informative the presentations were’. It is great that the work we are doing to promote Digital Literacy and on-line safety is being recognised as outstanding practice. Well done Ms Adel, Associate Senior Leader. Be Proud

Rocket Car Race – the rain didn’t stop Year 7 enthusiasm for STEM

On Tuesday 27 March, despite torrential rain, Year 7 had the opportunity to see how their rocket cars performed in a speed race organised by the Royal Army. A rocket was placed in each of the model cars and the girls were able to see them zoom off. The winning team were SSSAH with a speed of 37.5ms. Congratulations to these girls, who will now be invited to race their new model car at the regional finals on the 10th May. Well done to Ms Adel, Ms Sahebdin and Ms Budhia for organising such a positive experience for Year 7. Aim High

GCSE Exams – great start with Drama

On Thursday 19 April, GCSE Drama students performed their final pieces in front of the external examiner. Ms Griffiths was really proud of the way the students approached the day and I am sure the examiner has gone away impressed with the quality of the performances. Today I was able to celebrate this success with four Year 11 students who were nominated for Headteacher’s Student of the Week because of their performances and participation in the exams this week. Be Proud

Oxford University welcome Sarah Bonnell

On Wednesday 18 April, Ms Sahebdin took a group of ambitious students to visit Oxford University as part of the launch of the Brilliant Club. Visiting this prestigious university gave the students a chance to find out more about university life and consider their goals for the future.  Aim High
