It’s been another busy week here at Rudheath Senior and it’s only going to get busier! 

Year 6 Transition Days 

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week we welcomed year 6 from schools around Vale Royal and beyond for their transition days.  We are really looking forward to them joining the Rudheath Senior family in September, they were absolutely brilliant, taking part in all activities and trying their best to make new friends and embrace new experiences. 

The academy is growing from strength to strength and September’s year 7 will be the biggest intake for nearly 10 years.  Together we will establish a culture of kindness, enthusiasm and high quality so that we can develop #resilience #scholarship and #ambition.  So very proud to have you all trust us with your children. 

Year 10 College Taster Days 

Year 10 have been to visit Warrington and Vale Royal College, South and West Cheshire College, Reaseheath College and Sir John Deane’s College this week.  They have taken part in a variety of workshops, taster sessions and familiarisation activities so that they can see what it is they are working towards and what their post 16 options are.  As always, our learners were a credit to both the academy and their families and it has been lovely to listen to year 10 discussing their future studies, hopes and ambitions. 

Thank you to Mrs Rooney and Miss Lockett for organising the days, to the colleges for hosting us and to Mrs Breithaupt, Miss Walker, Mr Russell and Mr King for accompanying our learners. 

Music for Life 

Miss Pim and I met with Alistair from Music for Life this afternoon.  We are working with Music for Life to deliver high quality instrumental lessons.  If your child is interested in learning an instrument please contact Miss Pim via the academy email or telephone. 

Holocaust Education Trust 

Mr Lambert spent Wednesday in Aushwitz-Birkenau with the Holocaust Education Trust.  He learnt about the Nazi treatment of Jews and other groups they thought could be treated as less than human.  An extremely moving day seeing artefacts and visiting sites that had seen such wickedness and cruelty – so important for us to learn from history. 

Learners from the academy will be visiting Aushwitz in February #scholarship #resilience  

Miss Kennedy 

We said our au revoirs to Miss Kennedy who left to begin her maternity leave today.  Miss Kennedy teaches drama and new media and we shall miss her very much in her absence.  We wish Miss Kennedy the very best of rest, happiness and joy and look forward to meeting her new baby very soon. 

Mrs Grannell, who has worked with us previously will be covering Miss Kennedy’s maternity leave from September. 

Changes to the School Day and End of Term Arrangements 

A letter has been sent home with all learners today, regarding changes to the school day from September and the end of term arrangements.  A copy of this letter will also be published on the website.  Please make sure you read it as there is important information for parents and carers on it. 

Have a wonderful weekend in the sunshine.  It’s certainly going to busy in our household!
