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!
