The highlight of the new term for year 9 has been the ski trip, which saw 76 students take to the slopes of Bormio in Italy. A detailed account of the group's adventures can be found in the Ski blogs below.
As part of our commitment to supporting and developing all our students, TMBS invited 'humanutopia' to deliver a workshop with the year 10 cohort. The group was formed in 2004 out of a desire to improve the lives of young people by developing their confidence and self esteem and in doing so enhancing their employability skills and life chances. The day long experience had a profound impact on many of the students and left them with a commitment to developing both their own and each other's well-being through positive actions and interactions.
So positive was the event that TMBS have invited humanutopia back to deliver a workshop to the year 11 cohort, focusing on skills to help them through their upcoming exams.

This Half Term's Sporting Highlights
After becoming crowned Leicestershire county champions the girls' under 13 table tennis team progressed to the regional finals on the 14th January 2017. The team put on a brave performance and eventually finished runners up in their age group. Many thanks to Mrs Nash who volunteered to team manage on the day and to the parents who provided transport and support. The team have qualified for the next round which will take place on the 4th March in Blackburn. Good luck to Leanna Bancroft, Keira Dowler Morley, Lucy Nash and Jess Clarke. Go team TMBS!
Saturday 4th February saw the Leicestershire and Rutland cross country championships at Ratcliffe Collage. With Charlotte still recovering from a virus Sophie was the only Market Bosworth School representative to run in the championships. The field was a mix of the cream of Leicestershire and Rutland schools' best runners. Sophie ran a very strong race and finished the race in a very credible 16th position, the best placing she has achieved during the current schools' cross country season.
Year 11 Mock Week
Year 11 students have completed a full and intense week of mock exams in preparation for their real exams this year. I would like to say a big thank you to all staff and students for their support during this busy and stressful week.
As the exam window approaches, it is really important that students look after their mental and physical health. We will have a number of activities both in tutor time and during lesson time this term to support students with this. If students are absent for any reason, it is really important that you contact the office and that they speak to their teachers to catch up on any work they have missed.
If you do have any concerns or would like more information, please contact Mrs Durrands.
