I was delighted to see so many students and parents/carers at the Year 9 Options Evening. I know that over the next few weeks students will be thinking very carefully about their choices. Thank you in advance to parents/carers for their support with this. The Options booklet and the PowerPoint used during the evening can be found on the website in the CEIAG page.
We had some excellent sporting achievements last week. Well done to all of the students who participated in the Year 8 Girls Basketball tournament and particular congratulations to the ‘A’ team of Lily, Sophie, Libby, Ellie, Ella and Lottie who are now district champions.
Last week we also sent a team to the District Championships where all who participated performed well; for some students it was their first competition at this level. Particular congratulations to Jessica Childerley and Finley Sayer for both winning Silver medals in their category and to Lewis Webb who took the Gold. I am sure that they were all inspired by seeing the Olympic Athlete Lewis Smith training alongside them as they competed.
A group of budding authors from Year 7 and 8 attended a Writers’ Day on Friday. I look forward to reading the work produced on the day.
Finally, we have our Year 10 Work Experience Information evening tomorrow for students and parents/carers.

For the last two weeks we have been holding one to one conversations with Year 11 students concerning post-16 choices. Staff involved have been very impressed with the thoughtful approach students have taken towards this. The majority have had clear ideas about what they want to do next year and what they need to do. Many of the students are aiming to go to the St. Neots Sixth Form Centre and students have been reminded that application forms need to be handed in by 5 February. Other students are keen to follow an apprenticeship route. These students will get the opportunity to find out more about apprenticeships from specialists involved in securing and offering apprenticeships. It has also been very encouraging to hear how hard many of the students have been working both in school and at home in preparation for the examinations in the summer.
Congratulations to the Year 8 Handball team who played in their first tournament on Thursday. Despite being very new to this sport, the students performed extremely well and only just lost out in the final. Also, well done to the Year 11 Basketball team who also performed extremely well at a tournament last week.
Finally, I look forward to seeing parents, carers and students at the Year 9 Options Evening on Thursday.
