As our first half term of 2016-17 draws to close, there are so many events planned for or currently taking place! The acts for the Bromsgrove’s Got Talent final have been announced and the video that was shared by Miss Reeks has created an excited buzz in advance of the final which has been postponed to term 2. The acts are all very different and I am very much looking forward to the difficult job of judging the winner! We have had a number of visits from universities across the region to Bromsgrove and our HE/Careers advisor also ran a visit to an Oxford Workshop to further support our students applying there. Some of our students also had a wonderful opportunity to take part in the Bangkok International Choral Festival at ISB and they formed part of a choir that was made up of students from schools across the region. We also hosted a FOBISIA JAWS event at school exploring how we and other schools in South East Asia deliver Outstanding Pastoral Care: this was well attended and all delegates spoke highly of our Student Leadership Group who ran a session for the visiting teachers. Our Upper School students are currently on Challenge Week as I write this and we look forward to welcoming them back on Friday and hearing of their adventures. I wish everyone a happy and relaxing half term break.
