I must be doing something right. As each year goes by I try my best to help our students develop their independence and become more responsible. Every year I see small but positive improvements in our students.
This year in the first 3 days of class I have had several year 11 students pressing me for the dates I am going to run the after-school coursework club. Having spent so many years chasing them, it is nice for them to be chasing me for a change. Even more impressive is that I don’t even teach them this year and they have hunted me down in their own time.
Our qualification results were excellent with our KS4 GCSE students getting 81% grade A*-C.
My A-level classes are fired up and I have a good feeling about their commitment this year. Once again, developing independence and responsibility is paying off.
