Hot Chocolate with the Head

Today I had the pleasure of meeting Toby from Year 8 and Alex and Corey from Year 9 who were nominated for Hot Chocolate with the Head by Miss Hutchinson, to acknowledge completing an excellent piece of English homework.

Alex’s homework was on ‘Of Mice and Men’ whilst Corey’s was on the project ‘Who am I’ and Toby’s was for his English ‘Boy’ diorama.

Well done!

Hot Chocolate with the Head – Year 7 Girls’ Rugby won Gold

Today I had the pleasure of meeting and presenting a certificate to a group of Year 7 girls who were nominated for Hot Chocolate with the Head by Mrs Winstanley, to acknowledge their Gold medal-winning performance in the Year 7 girls’ touch rugby tournament.

They played brilliantly beating 8 other secondary schools in the first girls’ touch rugby tournament, organised by the Partnership and Bristol Bears Foundation. They were such fun and looked the part, representing Scotland in the World Cup theme event.

Well done everyone!

Certificate Collection

Students can collect their certificates either:
1. in person from reception;
2. via someone else collecting from reception with a signed letter giving consent to collect on their behalf; or
3. by supplying a stamped addressed envelope to the exams office with £2.40 postage so they can be sent recorded delivery.

We are required to retain certificates for one-year post receipt after which time they can be confidentially destroyed. Students are reminded to keep their certificates safe, the cost to students of obtaining re-printed certificates from the exam boards is around £40 per certificate.

If you have any queries please contact Mrs Maynard

Anti-Bullying

This week has been anti-bullying week so our assemblies have focussed on the types of and impact of bullying. Students have been asked to reflect on their role in helping contribute to a cohesive supportive community at Ashton Park School.

We will be looking to develop this theme in during tutor time with interactive activities. If parents and carers are interested in finding out more and supporting their child at home then please use the link to the Parents’ toolkit below.
