A REFLECTION ON THE AUTUMN HALFTERM
Welcome to the first edition of the Waldegrave Magazine which we hope will give you further insight into school life. Many staff and students have contributed to the magazine, sharing their reflections and memorable experiences of what has been a very busy half term. The start of the new school year is always abundant with new opportunities for our students to flourish and you can read about some of these in the magazine. Students new to school have enjoyed the opportunity to make new friendships and it has been wonderful to see our students in Y7 and Y12 settling into their new forms. Our GCSE and A Level students have also had an opportunity to pursue a more personalised curriculum and I have enjoyed talking to students about their option choices and hearing how much they are enjoying their subjects. Students have also had the opportunity to develop new interests and passions outside of lessons with lots of extracurricular activities taking place. Our Y11s completed their Silver DofE expeditions this half term and we have just launched the Bronze programme for our Y9 students. This term we are delighted to have created a new post for a Graduate Sports Assistant and Mr James has made a huge contribution to the PE department, running activities for all year groups. As the days draw in, it was lovely to end the half term with a Diwali celebration organised by Tanisha G in Y11, marking the festival of light. ~Ms Tongue, Headteacher .
