With new measures being used this year to judge performance in exams, we are delighted that the draft performance measures sent to schools today confirm, yet again, the amazing achievements of Highlands’ students.
The scores, to be made public in October, show that 77% of our students in year 11 achieved the new headline figure of a good pass (C or above) in both English and Maths. Almost our best ever results, this follows from the sheer hard work of our students and their teachers, and all are to be congratulated!
In the sixth form we have our best ever results in Year 12 and in Year 13 most students reached their chosen university or career pathway, including Matthew Brace who gained a place at Cambridge University to study Natural Science.
Well done everyone!
Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school.
All the information regarding rehearsals is on Frog. Students should check this regularly for rehearsal schedules, links to useful videos and the recordings of rehearsals.
After half term we will be launching the competition to design a poster/programme for the production. The winning designer will receive 50 house points and their design will be professionally printed to advertise the production.
A number of students have expressed their interest in helping back stage with the show. If you are one of those students, please make sure you speak to Mrs Carr at the start of next half term as work will begin soon on the set design and construction. Many hands make light work!
As the production is in March this year, tickets will go on sale via Parentpay in the new year. In the meantime, we had better get learning those colours…… “red and yellow and green and brown and scarlet and ….”
