Headmaster's Bulletin 11th May 2018
We say goodbye to Year 13 today as they begin their Examination Leave. The cohort have been outstanding role models for the younger students, with a consistently excellent work ethic, superb contributions to extra-curricular activities and first rate student leadership and I am sure the A Level results in August will reflect their exceptional attitude.
Once the last dot on the final examination paper has been made a large number of our Sixth Formers will be embarking on inspirational educational projects across the globe and we hold an annual Martin Travel Award Ceremony to celebrate and financially support, through The Old Grammar School Foundation, these ventures. This year's event was held on Wednesday and was well attended by Governors, staff, families and the students who gave fantastic presentations demonstrating their interest in underprivileged cultures, the education system within them and the threat to the environment in associated areas of the world. Each student explored the potential impact of their support and how they envisage developing personally from their proposed projects. A remarkable group of young people who I am sure will be outstanding ambassadors for the school: Click Here
Chemistry teacher, Naomi Hennah, has won the Royal Society of Chemistry Schools Education Award for 2018, for her innovative research and work in the importance of oracy in learning and its impact on student progress within Chemistry. This is a fabulous accolade and a highly prestigious achievement for Mrs Hennah, who has already had several of her related articles published and internationally acclaimed. Much of her research is carried out here at NSB and is one of the driving forces behind our school wide drive to improve standards of literacy: Click Here
