With the weather back to normal everything was a little more relaxed until Thursday.  I walked the dog at 6 in the rain, came into work in a snowstorm at 6.30.  Thankfully there were no disruption, let’s hope that Thursday was the last of winter.

Year 11's have been working hard this week sitting the second round of mock exams, essential for the teachers to identify the gaps in knowledge that we need to address before the real thing.  Behaviour in the exams was excellent and the effort levels were good, so over to the teachers now who have a heavy marking weekend.

Education is more than examinations and this week there have been a series celebrations around International Women’s Day.  All departments have been celebrating women who have been outstanding in their fields.  Thanks to Miss Crossley who has organised the celebrations of women this week.




On another note congratulations to Mr Duarte and the work he is doing with Young Carers it looks like we are well on the way to receiving a prestigious award that only one other Secondary School in York has.

Also, congratulations to Becky and the catering team for receiving the highest award possible in the recent hygiene inspection.

And on a final note, if anyone has been worrying all week about my boiler situation – new boiler is now installed thanks to plumbing legend Wayne Miller.

Have a great weekend.
