Good afternoon

This week has been another fun-packed week for Team Rushden! Last night we were entertained by the sixth form students who clearly have been working incredibly hard to produce their unique, thought-provoking showcases.

Year 6 transition days continue for the second day today, they have had the opportunity to experience many lessons and eat in our very American Diner yesterday as we remembered American Independence day. It has been lovely seeing so many pupils from various primary schools mixing and making new friends. Leaders have dropped into lessons to see pupils being well supported and with very smiley faces!

There have been many trips this week too but a real highlight was the year 11 prom, many staff turned up to see our stunning year 11 pupils quite literally having a ball. We were all very proud of them and wish them all the success in the world.

Next week we have:

  • Commando Joe’s Life Skills day for some pupils
  • The County Finalists competing against other local schools performing a dramatic piece to Northamptonshire Police Knife Crime Prevention Team.
  • A year 10 Enterprise Finalist challenge event where some of our pupils will be competing at Wembley Stadium.
  • Weather permitting we will be having our Sports Day next week too.
  • A Dragon’s Den competition
  • Our Learning for Life Day.
  • A trip to France for some of our year 8s and finally
  • Year 7 to Year 10 Rewards trips.

A very exciting week ahead. I trust that you have a very good weekend and thank you once again for reading.

Mrs J Burton
