Waldegrave School Autumn Magazine 2022


This half term I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and see our Y10 and Y11 students reflect the values of our school: ‘enjoy, achieve and empower’, through a wide variety of different experiences. There was lots of enjoyment at our Macmillan Coffee Morning as we raised money for a worthy cause. I am incredibly proud of the very generous charitable response shown by Y10 and Y11 towards collections for the Give Up Clothes for Good campaign and the local food bank respectively. We have had empowering speeches delivered by Y10 through the Jack Petchey workshop on a range of topics that has made us all reflect and learn. Y11 House captains have shown great leadership by stepping up to the mantle in organising and leading events such as the House assemblies. The abundance of teamwork and leadership continued through the extra curricular team sports and silver Duke of Edinburgh challenge. Added to this there has been the huge number of epraise points awarded by staff to KS4 students, and a healthy competition already set up with each form aiming to be top of the leaderboard. Each time the hard work, resilience and cooperation with others has allowed our KS4 students to flourish. It is with this in mind that I would encourage all Y10 and Y11 students to step into the next half term, determined to be the best version of themselves so they can enjoy, achieve and continue to empower themselves and others as part of the Waldegrave community. ~Mrs Dhir, Head of Key Stage 4
