Site Access Arrangements

We are delighted to have reclaimed the site this week after completion of the demolition work this last half term.  From now on, students will again enter and leave the site by the Gainsborough Avenue gate and have been briefed in an assembly today.  All visitors should enter the site by the Ormonde Drive gate and will find several visitor parking spaces near to the new reception entrance; disabled parking spaces are also available close to the reception entrance.  The Sixth Form and Gainsborough Avenue gates will be locked during the school day.  Thank you again for your patience and understanding during the period of the build.

Extra Curricular Provision Autumn 2019

Please see below a link to our extensive extra-curricular timetable for this term.  Research proves that taking part in extra-curricular activities both school and community based raises self esteem, develops essential life skills and broadens our friendship circles as well as our horizons.  With this in mind, encourage your child to get involved in as many activities as they can this half term.

Wonderful Geography Competition

Taking inspiration from the Geographical Association's annual photography competiition the Geography department have decided to run our own photography competition, open to all students Year7-13; there are two categories – KS3, and KS4/5.

The theme of the competition is ‘Wonderful Geography'.

To enter, you should take a photograph of some aspect of Geography, either human or physical that shows how Geography is wonderful.  

This could be a feature or something that captures a process. It need not be only something on a grand scale but might equally be a small-scale feature of Geography; it might also be something seen in an urban environment as much as a feature of the countryside or a ‘wild’ area; and it could be taken locally or from somewhere further afield.

When you have taken your photo you will need to give it a title and a brief description - no more than 250 words  - to describe what Geography it shows and explain how and why it is wonderful, using geographical language to help create a concise and accurate description. Do your best to persuade about the wonder of Geography.

Please could you let your forms know about this opportunity. The closing date is the 9th December, however, the more, and earlier I receive photos the sooner I can start on classroom/corridor displays. Photos with accompanying descriptions should be emailed to me at donnang@maghullhigh.com

Whole School Literacy – Headteacher’s Homework

In keeping with UNESCO’s International Literacy Day on the 8 September, Ms Aspinall set every student a reading homework last week.  Each student MUST have a reading for pleasure book of their own choosing and must bring it to school each day.  They should be ready to talk about this with their form tutor and other members of staff.  UNESCO reminds us that good literacy skills are a necessity for social and personal development, so this really must be a priority for students across the whole school.
