Rudheath Senior Academy Headteacher’s Newsletter
Friday 21 June 2019
We have had a busy week at Rudheath with all sorts of activities happening.
Year 9 Trip to Chester University – Careers in Healthcare Day
Our Year 9 went to find out more about careers in healthcare on Wednesday. They went to lectures and workshops with colleagues from the NHS and the university and learnt about what it takes to work in healthcare at all levels. There will be a second careers trip next week, both trips have been funded by Higher Horizons to support building ambition so all our learners thrive when they leave us in year 11.
Mary Poppins Jr
The cast have been busy rehearsing under the direction of Miss Kennedy, Miss Pim, Miss Holt and Mrs Rimmer and tickets are selling fast! Miss Walker is getting the set together and I think Mrs Lockett has scoured every charity shop in a 10 mile radius for costumes and props! This weekend there will be a full day rehearsal on Sunday from 9:30am – 3:30pm for the full cast and we hope that the sound and lighting box will be complete before our first show on Wednesday. I look forward to seeing many of you at the show and will keep you up to date with their progress.
End of Year Exams
Now the GCSE exams are over, year 10 have been sitting their end of year exams. It’s been a really busy schedule for them with exams taking place all day every day except Wednesday. I have to say we have been really impressed with their attitude during a pretty challenging period of full on scholarship. Year 7, 8 and 9 have their exams next week, punctuated (if the weather holds out) by sports day on Thursday. Please ensure that if you have a child in year 7-9 they bring in revision to do in lessons when they are not sitting exams.
Year 11 Prom
Last night year 11 celebrated the end of an era at their prom in Vale Royal Abbey Golf Club. They arrived in the flashiest cars and outfits and I have to say I think I may have the best looking year 11 in at least a hundred mile radius! I hope you have seen the photos on social media and there are more on our website. Thank you to Barrington the Magician and Poppy’s Ice Cream Bicycle for entertainment and treats, Mr Malam for music and to Mrs Breithaupt, Mrs Witter, Mr Woolley and Mr King for their organisation. We had a great evening of celebration and dancing and I shall miss this year group who started school with me nearly 5 years ago.
I wish them every success in the future and do hope that they will keep in touch. Thank you too to parents, carers and families for their support throughout the last 5 years and we look forward to welcoming them all back in November for their certificate evening.
Well the weekend is here again. I do hope the sun shines for you whatever your plans.
