GCSE And Level 2 Results Day 2021

Students collected their GCSE and level 2 results today.  There were plenty of smiles as they opened their envelopes.   We are so proud of their achievements and are delighted that they have so successfully overcome the challenges of studying through a pandemic.  They have suffered from many disruptions during the last eighteen months and have shown great resilience to achieve their grades.

Principal Jim Parker said,

‘This year 11 cohort of students have overcome enormous challenges to achieve their results and I am so pleased that they have now met the requirements for the next stage of their education.  We wish all of our students the very best for the future whether that is at College or at Lord Grey Sixth Form.’

NSPCC Rocks!

The Maths department is encouraging students in years 7, 8 and 9 to take part in a week-long, sponsored activity using TT Rock Stars, to raise funds for the NSPCC.

As well as each student trying to achieve their personal best and raise funds for the NSPCC, the TT Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average based on the number of correct answers per student in the class (who play during the competition hours) and the winning classes in the school will be the ones with the highest average!

Correct answers in all game modes will count, but only between 7 am on Monday 24th May 2021 and 7 pm on Sunday 30th May 2021 and it is only Studio Mode where the Rock-Speeds can be earned.

If you haven’t yet set up your TT Rock Stars account, you can watch this video which will explain not only how to set up an account, but how to customise your character and even how to play… there’s even some interesting characters in the video whom we are sure you’ll recognise!

If you need another Sponsorship Form, then you can download one here or speak to your Maths teacher.

Good Luck!

Making Music!

Students from Year 7 were tasked with making musical instruments at home, to further their learning and to help them with an upcoming challenge in their Music Lessons.

The students thought very hard about what they could make and as a result we had a wide range of instruments created including a laser cut harp, a piano, a 3D printed guitar, shakers, drums and even a carrot wind instrument!

Year 7 Students with their Musical Instument Creations

The challenge that faced the students once they had created their own musical instruments was to use these creations in lessons to create unique pieces of music together.

The students had just as much fun creating and performing their music as they had creating and designing their instruments.

Everyone agreed that they had enjoyed this exploration in making music and were looking forward to further challenges from the Music department.
