I would like to start by saying sorry for missing last week, but it was for a good reason - I was at another school interviewing English teachers.
Recruitment has formed a massive part of our plans for next year and we have assembled a youthful and talented team for next year. Conventional recruitment does not always get a large field in the current educational climate and we have used many interesting and new methods to get the best teachers in front of our students for next year.
Now, on to what has been happening - and what a busy couple of weeks we have had . . . . . .
Last week some of the Year 9 students visited Kingswood for a character building residential with Mrs Callan and Mr Langley
On the Friday of last week we had PiXL takeover day where over 20 students shadowed staff, taught lessons and found out about the different jobs staff do around school.
