The Learning For Life day was rewarding for Team Rushden. Such a lot of time and effort went into planning the PSHE day by the pastoral team and pupils commented that they thoroughly enjoyed learning about how to keep healthy and participating in the variety of activities available. We also invited in several guest speakers and they were very complimentary about the attitude of our pupils. I think a highlight for me was watching the final Y10 presentations and hearing Adam Ait Ali sing to all of year 10 and receiving rapturous applause from his peers. Great Team Rushden spirit.

Year 11 have been very focused on preparing for their GCSEs with the first set of exams in French, Dance, Drama and Art. At the end of this bulletin please find the Y11 subject revision lists for the mock exams. Paper versions have been issued. Things that Y11 should be doing include:

Accessing their exam board websites and reading the specifications

Practicing GCSE exam questions and reading through mark-schemes

Using revision guides to make revision notes emailing photos of their revision to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Week beginning the 4th December, not only will we have the library open but we will also be opening the Main Hall for pupils to socialize quietly at lunchtime. We continue to have the Sports Hall and Gym available for more energetic sporting games.

The 6th form have now relocated to the Chichele Suite; thanks to the sixth form leaders, pupils, site and IT for making this happen so swiftly.

Have a good weekend, I wonder how many families will be preparing for Christmas this weekend. Rushden Lakes may be very busy, but how lovely to have it on our door step.
