Setting out educational ideas for high achieving girls

End of the Course

Year 13 leavers

Our blog this week, of course, reflects on the fact that Year 13 have come to the end of their courses and prepare to take their exams: some of them have already started. The end of your school days is something that you tend to remember for the rest of your life and I have asked some of our girls to reflect on their time in sixth form, and what it meant to them as learning individuals. Their insights are useful and informative and I commend it to you.

The girls reflect on two questions that I posed to them: What helped you in your learning? If you were restarting your Sixth Form career what advice would you give to yourself? As always their answers are interesting and challenging, and we will be reassured by their positivity as they get to the end of their journey with us. I was not present when they made the film, as I wanted it to be their own opinions.

Links to useful websites

This is an interesting article from the Guardian this week: The 7 things successful heads of department do. I’d be interested to know what you think of this.

You can read this article here.

SSAT is running a session on “Redesigning Schooling” – not the most apposite of titles in the present climate, but the booklet that they have sent out is full of good ideas. If you have time, have a dip into it here.

Teacher’s Planners

Finally, can I remind you that I welcome your input into designing and writing our new teacher planners: please come and look at the examples I am working with if you’d like some ideas, but certainly please think of what you want to see included to make your professional life as supported as possible.
