Ruth Young, our new Secondary Principal, writes: “A positive and enthusiastic atmosphere has filled the Secondary school since the new academic year has started. It has been a time full of firsts: first assembly, first House competition, first BEAM lesson and first mixed-age tutor time, amongst many more. The tutor groups have named their tutor groups, with the theme of Thai Flora and Fauna to guide them and the final choices are now in pride of place on the House board in Reception. Learning is well underway and students are being shown many innovative and cutting-edge techniques to enhance their education and achieve their full potential. The ideas and inclusive atmosphere seen in every classroom I have visited have been truly inspirational. The students’ reactions to the new mezzanine area on the second floor have been a joy to see: they have now settled into their new space and are enjoying the freedom to both work and relax in comfort. The Trashion Show has made a welcome return to the House Events calendar this year and I am looking forward to sharing photos of the creations that students produce with you next week. Remember: Trashion is the new fashion!”
