No result...

We have had a very productive half term, our Year 7 pupils have settled very quickly, I think it took 3 days on average for our pupils to find their way around, and now it seems like that they have always been here. We had a lot of Year 6 pupils and their parents visit this half term, not only joining us on Open Evening but also during the normal school day. This term our pupils have continued to demonstrate Team Rushden values superbly and the compliments keep flowing. There is a draft version of the Admission Policy on our website for consultation.

Year 11 should make sure that they continue to chip away with their revision programme. We are thrilled that they are finding the phone revision apps worthwhile and making a difference. They now need to keep going with the exam practice, it will pay off in the end. The mock exam timetable has been issued, so all Year 11’s know what is now ahead of them. Getting themselves organised and into good routine revision habits is essential. We would be grateful if you would provide the added encouragement that some may need.

Please do not forget that pupils return to school on Tuesday the 5th November as we have training day on the first Monday back. Hopefully much of the building work will be finished when we return and by Christmas we hope that it will be totally complete. Please can you ensure that your son/daughter’s are coming to school with appropriate footwear and warm coats once we return after the half term break?

We wish you a good half term break and look forward to greeting the team back in a week on bonfire night.

Jane Burton, Principal
