It is always a pleasure to welcome the community back after the holiday! It has been good to hear the Year 11 students talk about the intensive revision that has taken place in the half term break. The majority of students continue to work extremely hard in the lead up to the Year 11 mock exams which commence on the 19th of November.
Well done to our two Sixth form students, Edgar Kager and Joseph Lowton, who spent the week on a very successful work placement at Pi Datametric London. It was wonderful to receive the feedback from Mr Earnshaw – the company’s Founder and Chief Technology Officer.
“I just want to say how impressed we all were with Joseph and Edgar. I was genuinely amazed at the astonishing amount these boys learned in the space of a few days. After attending a new business pitch with Whitbread/Premier Inn and joining a meeting with Dyson’s Global Head of Search, they put their newly acquired knowledge to good use and prepared a presentation for an existing client providing recommendations on how to improve their online revenues. I’ve often said that I’ve taken on work placement/shadow students from all over and in all honesty the Stanborough students have always impressed me the most.”
Headteacher’s commendations for this week are:
George Jarvis (Yr.7) for maintaining a positive attitude and reaching all expectations and never complaining, despite difficult physical constraints;
Darcey Palmer (Yr.8) for outstanding contributions to basketball and nominated by other students as the most valuable player;
Alan McCarthy (Yr.9) for an excellent start to Stanborough and contribution to House events;
Abigail Frost (Yr.10) for the most positive rewards in the last seven academic days;
Tajreen Alom (Yr.11) for being a role model in her approach to learning;
Mitchell Burrows (Yr.12) for outstanding achievement in co-ordinating a short film for the Post 16 Information Evening;
Margaret Delciampo (Yr.13) for outstanding commitment to excellence in both her studies and leadership roles.
