    Excellent History homework!

    Excellent History homework!

    As a faculty leader, I am always impressed to see students going the extra mile in class and homework and striving for our school value of ‘Excellence’. This week Mrs Meaney and I have been blown away by the quality of Y7 History homework handed in after the half term break. Clearly students have been working incredibly hard on their British Royal Family projects as well as their research into speeches which bring people together in Britain.

    Dedication - Mountain Climbers For Mental Health Charity

    We wish Lily, John and Rebecca Scott, their mum (and their Dalmatian, Poppy) good luck as they scale Ben Nevis on 29th May to raise funds for All Saints Youth Project's TRUST support group.

    The TRUST group is for parents/carers and their teenagers who are affected by Adolescent Mental Health, offering support and understanding in a safe, confidential environment every Thursday afternoon at All Saints Centre. The money Lily, John and Rebecca raise will go towards  therapy boxes, craft materials and guest speakers to deliver talks to the groups.

    We are a school community that actively supports mental health charities such as MIND and we had a great response from students in terms of empathy and compassion during the recent national mental helath awareness week.

    We would encourage members of the school community to support our students in fundraising and you can do that by clicking on the link below:
