Year 11 students using graffiti to help prepare for their
GCSE English exams 

I loved seeing the photos on the front cover of this newsletter from English lessons where staff and students show how creative English can be.

A copy of the Easter Y11 GCSE revision sessions timetable can be found on our website. Please note reception isn’t staffed over the holidays so students will need to make sure they arrive in reception on time where their subject teacher will meet them.

I am looking forward to the staff ‘Bake off’ next week on Tuesday 28th March which has been organised as part of the Rock Challenge fundraising efforts. I have booked tickets for the final and it is lovely to hear that lots of you have also booked tickets to support the team. Ryde will definitely rock the house!

The New Carnival Company will be using our hall for one of their costume designing courses. Following several years of not being involved with the carnivals and Mardi Gras I am pleased that we are back on the carnival float! As you saw in the last Newsletter some of our students have created a song for local primary school students to perform at the Mardi Gras. We have also have a Mardi Gras club who are making plans for the event in July.

Speaking of events, the arrangements for the dance performance at Wembley in April have also been confirmed. Seventy of our students are off to Wembley on 8th April to open the Saracens pre-match show along side 2015 X-Factor winner Louisa Johnson.

On Thursday 6th April will are holding another ‘So you think you can dance’ competition following the success of last years performance. We will let you know once the tickets are on sale.

Have a lovely weekend.
