A productive start to the term
We have had a very busy and productive start to the term. We are pleased that 78% of students from Year 11 last year will be studying in the Sixth form. The new Year 7 have had a very good start and have come into College keen and ready to learn. This is a testament to all the hard work of our colleagues in the local primary schools. We have launched the SIMS Learning Gateway for parents. This will give you instant access to see key information about your child. You will be able to check things like homework, rewards and attendance.
Students in Year 9 will be carrying out some research in their lessons into the use of new technologies in their learning. We held a very successful event for Year 10 and 11 parents outlining how they can support their children through the GCSE courses.
Our Horticultural team at the College, led by Helen Harris were proud to be part of the winning submission for Tavistock in the Britain in Bloom competition. We also welcomed visitors from the local churches and the Tavistock Food Bank to the college to celebrate Harvest Festival. Produce grown by the students in the school orchard and garden was raffled to support the Food bank.
Next week the Tavistock Cooperative Learning Trust is hosting the Poetry festival across all the schools. Every school will have a poet in residence and a range of activities going on in schools. This will culminate in events at the College and in the Town Hall next week. Full details of these events will be on the website.
