This week Sixth Form students in year 12 had the opportunity as part of the "Speakers4Schools" programme to listen to a presentation by Tim Maccabee, Managing Director of the world renowned Ducati motorcycle company. His excellent presentation focussed on the importance of keeping opportunities open as wide as possible for as long as possible and for the students to understand that certain choices do close certain doors.
Yesterday the general election was marked by a debate and vote by year 12 students. The results were in contrast to the overall national picture producing victory for the Labour speaker.
The year 7 boys’ football team did very well to reach the Northern Area Cup final without conceding a goal. The final, which was played at Nuneaton Town FC, ended in defeat but the team has acquitted itself well this season.
This weekend the girls’ netball teams from years 8, 9 and 10 will have the opportunity to play against teams from various parts of the country at Condover Hall in Shropshire. I am sure it will help them to develop the self-belief necessary that they can compete successfully against teams from beyond the local area. Good luck to them.
The PTA quiz night was well attended and as usual was a very pleasant evening. This year’s projects for the PTA funds will be focussed on supporting whole school productions and further developing the playgrounds.
We are considering some changes to the school uniform. We have made progress in terms of eliminating a range of casual items such as hoodies and tracksuit tops but there is room for further improvement to ensure that there is greater consistency and that the pupils look as smart as they possibly can at all times. Further details to follow.
Finally, good luck to year 11 who begin their GCSE exams with RE on Monday and year 12 who begin AS. Please remember them in your prayers.
St Thomas More School is committed to safeguarding and the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment
