Hello everybody! A serious week for Year 11 as they have started their practice exams. The attitude shown in the examination rooms has been brilliant, I hope that they are showing the same attitude in their revision. This year we are releasing the results at the Year 11 parents evening. Last year we only had 50% attendance at the Year 11 parents evening where Millthorpe had over 75%. I am hoping that by releasing the results we will get more parents to attend and we will be able to have really productive conversations. We can’t do it without your support. Let’s see if we can beat the fantastic Year 8 turnout of 67%.

Well done to our pupils in Year 8 who received certificates as having highly commendable projects in Religious Studies as part of the national Spirited Arts competition.
