Duke of Edinburgh Award, Vacancies and Farewell to Year 11June 13, 2021 9:31 am
Year 10 students conducted themselves impeccably last week in their Mock Examinations. Students have talked about the process as helpful; to have a feel for the formality of the examination environment, but also seeing revision as a skill to be learnt, which benefits from practice like anything else. These assessments (like any other) are a learning tool, from which to clarify next steps and recognise progress made. This week Year 12 join in the same as their fortnight series starts.
Well done to the 80 students who completed their assessed expedition for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award over the weekend. The conditions could not have been more distinct to the soggy weather that they faced on their practice. We are delighted that restrictions mean that they have been able to camp for this final phase.
You may have seen it on our Twitter page, but just in case not, please watch our farewell video to Year 11. These students have faced a tumultuous journey in the last eighteen months. We are so proud with how they have coped.
We are delighted to have made some exceptional teaching staff appointments for September 2021. We will be saying farewell to a handful of staff who leave us for promotion and moving out of the area. This week we are advertising for staff to supplement our support staff team. The first a further Student Support Officer, to add to our pastoral team and also Teaching Assistants and Graduate Interns, to join our Learning Support Team. Kesgrave High School is a great place to work and we seek to add to our dedicated team.
