Last week officially marked the beginning of the summer examination period, and with lots of our hard-working pupils now on study leave, the school has certainly felt a lot quieter!
Our students have been committed and focused in their revision and preparation, and we are confident that they will perform exceptionally well. Nonetheless, examinations can often feel both tiring and nerve-racking for pupils, and our priority during this time is ensuring their wellbeing.
We were delighted to see a student-led wellbeing project form last week, with some of our Year 9 pupils starting ‘The Cat Project’. In an attempt to “add a little bit of joy and lighten up other students’ mood” ahead of their summer exams, the group began a collection of cat drawings in the B6 classroom.
Over the course of the week, many students were inspired by the project and decided to add their own drawings to the board! The group even led a competition, inviting pupils to vote for their favourite cat to identify which one was the best!
This simple and fun project proved the perfect way to keep spirits high last week and we would like to thank the Year 9 students for spreading kindness and making staff and students smile!
