Friday 14th February is a staff training day. However, several Year 11 & sixth form teachers have requested to teach key stage 4 & 5 lessons on that day to help students prepare for both GCSE's and 6th form up coming mocks on the 24th February. Attendance to these lessons is compulsory. Students should arrive 15 minutes before their lesson in their daily, professional attire. If students would like to remain on site during lunchtime, lunch will be provided free of charge. Students must sign in and out at reception.
The Mark Evison Foundation
Over the summer two of our 6th Form students Stella and Esmahan pitched and received a cash bursary from Mark Evison Foundation with the goal of completing a 3 day hike across Cornwall. They were given money to cover tansport, accomodationa and food and the rest was up to them! Read Stella's account of the hike below:
"On our hiking challenge we trekked along the beautiful idyllic coast of Cornwall from Hayle, St Ives to Newquay. Fuelled by eating a hearty breakfast in the mornings, we walked all day long in the 3 days. We remained hydrated throughout the long hike and carried walking sticks. At one point one of us got blisters but we used our first aid to kit to help us continue walking. Luckily, for all three days we did not have any rain and it was sunny. It was truly an amazing view and at one lunch break we went down to the beach, rolled up our trousers and took off our shoes to dip our feet in sea. It was very relaxing! We also stumbled upon some historical landmarks such as Wheal Coates, a clifftop tin mining complex remains. We feel we gained valuable experience in team work- in sharing and allocating the planning tasks between us fairly and communicating. Both of us learnt that it is really important to pace yourself using time management skills. We feel proud to have accomplished our achieved goal in the 3 days. It was lovely being there in Cornwall and this hike was definitely an experience we will never forget!"
We have just kicked off our Mark Evison pitches for Year 12 so look out for more info shortly!
