The end of term has arrived and therefore I’ll keep this short. The spring term is the shortest term of the year, but also one of the busiest. Trial exams for Years 11 and 10, the same for some subjects in Years 8 and 9, and key events like Options Evening, parents evenings for Year 11, 9 and 8, and Trial exam results day for Year 11. Loads of sporting fixtures (including far too many penalty shoot outs for MHS teams), auditions for the next school production and the Marple Hall Dance show. Not to mention teacher strikes and the odd bit of extreme weather too.
Students and staff now have a two week break and I hope that everyone makes the most of it. Year 11, and exam students in Year 9, will hopefully see these two weeks as the perfect opportunity to get ahead with their revision and preparation whilst still taking some time out for themselves. Getting the balance right is so important, but we do strongly recommend that Year 11 in particular put in a decent effort – I promise it will pay off!
Thank you to everyone connected with the school for your hard work, determination and support this term, as always it is greatly appreciated.
