|EARLY COACHES - Thursday 8 November|
Please note: As it is our Senior Boys Open Evening, all evening coaches will depart early at 4.30pm.
A very big thank you to all the students who volunteered to help with car park duty at the fireworks last weekend. They were a huge help and also looked great in their hi-viz jackets! Thank you also to the Young Enterprise students who were very busy selling their wares on the evening, and the rowers who completed their sponsored row.
Update on Year 12
Everyone has been working hard over this half term and they now deserve some holiday time. A number of Year 12s have said how quickly the time has gone as they have been enjoying their studies and settling into Sixth Form life. This holiday is the perfect time for Year 12 to catch up on subject notes, tidy folders and consolidate their learning.
Update on Year 13
Year 13 have also hit the ground running this half term. The holiday is a good time to catch up on work, to take time to look at Grade cards, reflect on outcomes and ensure that they can address the key factors for improvement identified by their teachers. Over the holiday, Year 13 should also make time for their UCAS applications, ensuring that all sections are correctly completed. This might require time spent researching courses and looking out GCSE exam certificates so that the application can be finished. Personal statements will need updating and any advice given will need to be added, including any extended reading.
Mrs Rogers’s Assembly on Modern Slavery
Mrs Rogers spoke to the Sixth Form this morning about Anti-Slavery Day which was yesterday, 18 October, beginning with context on the slave trade and when William Wilberforce and the abolitionists spent two decades trying to get Parliament to pass a law ending the slave trade. In 1807, after a huge campaign, Parliament abolished the slave trade. Except that is not the whole story. Slavery still exists today. Over 40 million people, men women and children are still enslaved, that’s the equivalent to every man, woman and child in Canada being enslaved. There is a charity called Hestia that supports over 9,000 adults and children in crisis across London per year providing support for those experiencing domestic abuse and modern slavery.
