How time flies when the school keeps moving at such a pace…………..! There have been a number of discussions and changes surrounding the future development of St George’s School and our journey to outstanding in all aspects.
We have been successful in applying for a bid to build and replace the old gym with a state of the art Library and Literacy area. The new space will be known as the ‘Learning Hub’ and will include a mezzanine gallery, extended watershed, new teaching spaces and improved ICT. This will also be supported by further developments to the school site and the potential for a new sports hall/gym space. We are looking at an initial investment of £500,000 to support this project. We will also be applying for further bids to take our refurbishment and rebuild programme to beyond £1million pound. Exciting times!
We will also be looking at adapting the school uniform and PE kits to go with the launch of a new school image. The potential uniform/PE kit change will be made available on the New Intake Evening and at our Open Evening in September. We would look towards the new uniform being available from September 2014. It would not be made compulsory until September 2015 for all pupils. This would help spread out any costs for parents and given them the opportunity to utilise correct uniform purchases.
We have made further appointments to boost our excellent teaching staff and to help cope with our growing numbers. We have appointed a new Head of Maths, Advanced Skills Teacher of Maths, and three English teachers. This will bring together the new appointments with our new Deputy Heads for a bright September start.
We must congratulate all of the year 11early entry Maths students and the year 11 Geography residential groups. They have demonstrated that learning goes beyond the classroom and has a significant impact.
Congratulations to the Year 9 and Year 10 boys for winning the Rugby League competition. We have also had success winning the girl’s rounders tournament in year 8. Strong academic success and winning sports teams is a recipe for a successful and outstanding school to thrive.
Thank you for our school.
Guide us to do our best;
To live and learn together
As one family;
Help us to follow Jesus’ example;
Forgiving others when
Things go wrong;
Respecting all life
And loving one another."
