Weekly News Bulletin: 11 May 2015

Year 7 French and Spanish
Year 7 students will be taking an internal exam in both French and Spanish in the next two weeks.  The purpose of this is to allow students to practise ‘revising’ and ‘working in test conditions’, which they will be increasingly asked to do as they work towards public examinations in the future.

We will shortly be discussing students’ preferences for next year and more details will be sent to you about this in due course.  Please be assured that any decisions made about your child’s performance in these tests will only form part of our discussions.

Sixth Form May Ball
The annual Sixth Form May Ball took place at Maidens Barn on Fri 1st May.  The event was another huge success thanks mainly to the organisation of the Year 13 committee who put it all together.  The evening consisted of a dinner and dance with some awards given out to add good humour to the evening.  Special thanks to Daniel Brewer of Dunmow for helping to sponsor part of the night.  The students looked fantastic and all enjoyed themselves.
