From the Head of Middle School (Issue 17 2016)
Written on the 10 November 2016
Incredibly, the end of the 2016 academic year is fast approaching. There is always so much happening at this time of the year and it's important that the boys 'keep their eye on the ball' to ensure a successful end to the year, both academically and socially. This is true for all students, but particularly pertinent to our Year 9 students as they enter into the last few weeks of attendance at the Middle School.
This week I hope to finalise our staffing for the 2017 academic year. I would like to congratulate Sonja Brownridge who will be taking on a different role as of next year. Sonja will replace Deb Rischin (who is moving to the Senior School) as Teacher Librarian in the MRC. Sonja will also be spending some time as a Learning Enrichment Teacher to support some of our students who require additional assistance to access the curriculum.
Emily Upton will join our Year 8 Maths and Science team. Emily comes highly recommended to us from Blackfriars Priory College. By the start of next week, I hope to have suitable replacements for Sonja's Year 6 and Vincent Williams (12 months leave to travel) Year 7 position.
I would like to wish our Year 12 students the very best of luck as they enter their final exam period. I am sure that their hard work over the year will stand them in good stead.
