Welcome to Year 11
I would like to offer a warm welcome to Year 11. My tutor team and I are very much looking forward to working with you all, both as individuals, and as part of the wider year group team.
The next few months are vital for you to establish the breadth of understanding that you need to succeed in Key Stage 4 and GCSEs this and next academic year. Seize every opportunity, and make the most of all the opportunities that present themselves, both in and out of class.
I urge you all to act as role models to the new Year 7 students; remember, you were in their position not so long ago, and they too need to be nurtured as positive ambassadors for the Academy. Finally, remember to be the best you that you can ever be, and in the words of Winston Churchill, "Never, never, never give up"; if you follow these basic principles you are sure to shine.
Mrs K Ramsay,
Head of Year 11
