The Maths department have had a fabulous day today working with students in Y7-10 on 'Money Matters'. It is incredibly important that we teach our students the knowledge and skills that will enable them to be financially aware and successful adults when they enter into the world of work. We would like to thank Natwest for creating a fabulous set of resources for us to use. Our students really impressed us with their ability to identify credit and debt and to understand the difference between good and bad debt. They looked at a variety of financial scenarios and made sound suggestions of how money could be saved - they were particularly shocked at how much money 'Cassie' spent on her weekly shop and made great suggestions on how she could reduce her utility bills.

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming Amanda Kay into school from Jet2.com who spoke to a number of groups.
She started with Y11 in an assembly looking at the range of jobs in a large company such as Jet2.com from the obvious ones of pilot, cabin crew, customer services to engineers, photographers, media and web design. She explained the apprenticeship scheme they offer and how their interview process is designed to get the best out of people and to get them to demonstrate how they can ‘think out of the box’.
She then spoke to the pupils in Y9-11 who have opted to study Travel & Tourism and spoke in more detail about the company its plans for the future and how they are investing in young people. It was a great opportunity for pupils to learn about the industry and the full range of job opportunities they currently gave on their website.
Big thanks to Jet2.com and Amanda and we look forward to having her back again next year

Mrs Harris, Head of Year 8, has orchestrated a house competition/fundraiser with a difference and staff and students are loving it! They are being asked to donate their spare change with coppers counting as positive points and anything higher counting as negative points. This is where sabotage comes in. We are putting all coppers in to our own house's token boxes and anything higher in to the other house's token boxes. We are doing all of this for WIRES - Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service, the largest wildlife rescue & rehabilitation charity in Australia that provides rescue and rehabilitation for all native Australian fauna. #wires #houseteamsabotage ...
