No result...

The exam period is now in full swing, so far the pupils have conducted themselves impeccably. The months of hard work should pay off and our pupils should reap the rewards on exam results day. They have to be the best and yet the most nerve-wracking days of the school year, Thursday 16th August for A level results and Thursday 23rd August for GCSE results. Our y11 Sport and Leisure pupils gained great results this week fueling them to complete their coursework, last night many were still here working until 8pm, thank you to Team Rushden once again for making this happen.

During half term there will be opportunities for year 11 to attend school and work with teachers, watch out for the programme later. Remember to continue with GCSE pod and use your revision guides. Also later in this bulletin you will find the year 10 mock exam timetable, this follows swiftly on from the real GCSEs as the exam hall will be all set up with desks and chairs. Year 10 should be preparing for these exams now, asking teachers for advice, planning your revision programme and making revision notes. I don’t think you can beat practicing exam questions though and reading the mark schemes from the exam board websites.

Sixth formers must sign in and out of school daily and wear their lanyards at all times. All visitors to the school wear lanyards as do the staff. I am really pleased with the new reception area and improved security to site, but as ever we look to see how we can improve further. In the next few months you will see additions to the site as we update and revitalize areas that need it. Our student forum will be helping to plan our improvements.

I am absolutely thrilled that our performing arts department have been invited by the Police Commissioner to perform their unique performance called ‘Add Me’ and be professionally filmed so that it can be shared more widely. It is a stunning piece with some hard hitting facts, most of our local primary schools have seen this, either here or at their primary schools or even at the Deco theatre, what an accolade and what a fantastic experience this will be for our deserving sixth formers. Well done Ms Ede, proud of Team Rushden.

Some of us will be busy working, revising, celebrating the Royal Wedding and even watching the FA cup final this weekend, whatever you do stay safe and enjoy.

Mrs J Burton
