    Well, the temperature has fallen and winter is on its way. As we look back on the last few weeks, there is so much to be thankful for and proud of.

    Congratulations to the Girls Active team for their appearances on TV, publicising the importance of girls getting involved in sport. It’s great to see our students using their communication and leadership skills and approaching what they do with such commitment and drive.

    Similar determination has been shown by the six finalists in the Y10 Speakout competition, who presented to their Y9 and 10 peers in assembly. The students spoke eloquently about topics close to their hearts, such as politics, immigration and depression, proving teenagers have incredibly important things to say, experiences to share and a passionate voice to be heard.

    If anyone has seen the art work on display in the atrium, you will have seen how creative and thought provoking the displays are. I see students who are not afraid to push boundaries, expect the best of themselves and be outstanding. That is something to be thankful and proud of.

      Well, the leaves are turning and falling and the weather is unpredictable. With it comes the harvest celebration; well done to the generous students and their families, who brought in stacks of non-perishable items for Hillingdon Foodbank.

      It’s been an exciting and challenging month. Two students, Ella O’Loughlin (10M) and Rachel Oduntan (10S) have entered essays into the World Class Schools essay writing competition, an outstanding academic achievement, underpinned by some hard work and rigorous research. Their work on whether democracy is a successful system demonstrates that our young people truly are engaged and interested in the world around them, in addition to having a few things they could teach our politicians!

      Open Evening was a blaze of energy and a celebration of learning and community, as staff and students alike put on their best displays to welcome the families of Y6 students. There were experiments in science, a ‘grime scene’ in food tech, economic calculations and advertising from the 1970s in social studies and non-stop activity in PE and drama. What a fantastic effort all round!
