November 2016

Once again this year, students and staff at St John’s have worked extremely hard to coordinate this project in school.

Tutor Groups throughout the school were asked to contribute small toys, school supplies, hygiene items, shoeboxes or wrapping paper and during Pastoral Time each group then carefully wrapped and packed shoeboxes with gifts and Christmas messages to support this fantastic charity.

Year 12 students are holding a Charity Christmas fair on 13th December for all students from year 7-10. The nominated charities the Year 12 students have chosen are Cancer research and Project Peru.
Please come along and be part of our Advent Service on Wednesday 30th November, 6pm. The service will be a lovely way to mark the beginning of the season of Advent. Seasonal refreshments will be served after the service. For catering purposes please contact school if you would like to attend. Thank you, Emma Ramsey School Chaplain

6 Members of staff took part in a week of job shadowing in Galicia Spain to research ways to 'narrow the gap' between our higher and lower achieving students, Such was the success of the programme that the press coverage in Spain was huge. Some of the articles from the supremely successful week can be found below.
