Class 2 and Class 3 Art Trip to Stonehenge

 

The pupils enjoyed a trip to Stonehenge on Thursday 11th October despite the weather! This term, the classes are studying buildings and architecture in art, and this visit gave the pupils plenty of opportunity to sketch and draw as well as find out a little bit about the history of Stonehenge.

Fundraising Success

 

Well done to William (Year 7) and Grace (Year 5) for raising £20.00 for the Bath Cats and Dogs Home. The pair made bracelets, notebooks and pictures to sell at the School's Summer Fundraiser and they each received a lovely certificate for their efforts.

Writing Challenge Success

 

Congratulations to Zak (Year 9) for entering the 2018 Bible Project and winning a book for his efforts. The competition asked entrants to write a story based on the character of blind Bartimaeus and his encounter with Christ.

GCSE Results 2018

 

Once again we are delighted for our Year 11 pupils who have worked hard to achieve another fine set of GCSE Results. As a non-selective school, we have a range of abilities, and the pupils have made us proud.

 

 

 

 

We are also delighted for the teachers who have had to cope with new specifications and, in many subjects, a new grading system. On results day they are often as nervous as the students themselves!

 

Here are some of the headlines:

  • 80% of pupils achieved at least 5 GCSEs at grade C (4) or above.
  • 52% of exams taken resulted in A/A* (7-9) grades
  • Further Mathematics, English, English Literature, French, Chemistry,              Physics, ICT, and RE all had 100% pass rates (C (4) or above)

 

Subjects which performed especially well were:

  • Chemistry and Physics – 100% pupils achieved A*
  • English Language – 80% of pupils achieved A/A* (7-9)
  • Maths - 71% of pupils achieved A/A* (7-9)
  • Science - 67% of pupils achieved A/A* (7-9)

    Headteacher's Message

When visitors first enter our school, they invariably comment on the atmosphere. Described in infinitely different ways, the essence of a visitor's immediate impression is happy, motivated pupils working purposefully, quietly and independently in a calm learning environment of small classes, which are skilfully managed by dedicated, caring teachers who are passionate about their job.


The pupils themselves describe it as a loving family, where everyone is known and valued - a safe haven, where children can be themselves and find acceptance. Pupils thrive here – spiritually, socially, emotionally and academically.

 

'What is our secret?' is a question I often ask myself. In a fast-paced, constantly changing world of education, I believe that our success is because everything we do is underpinned by timeless and enduring values -attentiveness, faithfulness, creativity, diligence, patience, contentment, obedience, wisdom, tender-heartedness, thankfulness, honesty, joyfulness, love, forgiveness, responsibility and self-control. Values which are rooted in the Christian faith.

 

If you have never visited this very special place, I would love to welcome you and show you round so that you can see for yourself.
