Headteacher's Weekly Update


Dear Families,

I trust this letter finds you well. The weeks seem to be flying by, and I am reliably informed that there might even be a glimmer of spring heading our way very soon. 

On Monday, we had the privilege of hosting six external visitors who came to review our school and witness the progress we have made throughout this academic year. While having such a large group of observers might have felt daunting, it was truly an opportunity for us to showcase the exceptional work that takes place in our community. Today, I am delighted to share that the feedback we received reflects nothing but pride for our collective efforts. I feel immensely privileged to lead such a wonderful school, and I extend my heartfelt gratitude to each member of our community; students, staff, parents and governors. 

One of the most gratifying aspects of the report was the emphasis on the student voice, which serves as a testament to the outstanding work our team does in listening to our students, providing an engaging curriculum, and supporting them every step of the way. I was particularly moved by the statement “students regard this as a school where they have genuine pride in belonging”. It is indeed the ultimate affirmation of our shared mission to create an inclusive environment where students can thrive. We want them to be proud of their school and their achievements, and proud to promote our values of Ambition, Resilience and Respect. 

On top of this wonderful news, our students also showcased their incredible hard work in the recent drama club performance, where they mesmerised audiences when they portrayed 80 year old characters. They will be performing again this weekend at The North Wall in Oxford. I have no doubt they will once again captivate the audience. 

Our GCSE PE students went through the moderation process this week for their practical assessment. They all showed commitment and respect for the process, reflecting their dedication to their academic goals. 

Finally, I had the pleasure of spending some time with our Duke of Edinburgh Silver students yesterday. It was wonderful to be able to join them while they immersed themselves in the beauty of the great outdoors. It was a delight to hear about their little detours, all part of the learning process, and how they worked as a team to make their way to the right location. I look forward to seeing them again on Monday, and hope there were less detours today! 

As ever, all of our students have shown their Ambition, Resilience and Respect this week. Wishing you all a lovely weekend. 

Kind Regards

Kirsty Rogers
