Well done to the year 10s and year 11s that gave up their inset day to attend 'poetry live' last Thursday. It was a unique experience where we got to hear first hand from poets such as Dame Carol Ann Duffy and Simon Armitage. As well as reading their poems (which all feature on the GCSE English Literature syllabus), the poets discussed their work and its influences and students even had the opportunity to ask them questions. The students were excellent ambassadors of our school and they have since be able to share some of their new knowledge in their English lessons. Hearing from the chief examiner was especially useful and our students felt encouraged by his advice. I think poet and playwright John Agard had the biggest impact on our students and they may remember his words even after their exams!
On Wednesday 30th January, our year 9 German students were lucky enough to receive a visit from Doctor Ellen Pilsworth and Doctor Sophie Payne from the Reading University Modern Languages Department. They took us on a tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland encouraging the students to consider the influence of German culture and language as well as career paths which are made possible by studying languages and in particular German. It was a fascinating afternoon and gave our year 9s a lot to think about as they prepare for their options choices.
