New School Year is Well Underway

A huge welcome back to all our staff and students. We hope everyone is well rested and ready for another exciting year ahead. We have returned to some great changes to the layout of different zones. The Media Studio has made its way up to the next floor and our LZ4 has much more learning space and equipment. It will open up more opportunities to be creative and support with teaching and learning. It is great to see all our new year 7 students making the very smooth transition into Melland and we wish them the best of luck. Head of Key Stage 3 Mrs Milburn had this to say;

A wonderful first week for our new starters in KS3. They have all arrived looking smart in their new uniforms and settling in well to tutor groups and classes. A big thank you to our Y8 and Y9s who are doing a sterling job of welcoming and helping the new pupils to make friends and find their way around the school.  A great start to the year!

Key stage 4 students have an exciting year ahead and Mr Barlow would like to mention; “Key stage 4 students have settled in to their new tutor groups very well and are already impressing staff with their hard work and maturity. Lauren , Sonny  and Kevin are just a few students who we’d like to give a special mention”.

We have had some very excited pupils moving from Key stage 4 into 6thform and are preparing for some exciting accreditations and preparations to the next stage of their education. Head of Key stage 5 Miss Hammond is extremely happy with the new start;

A huge welcome to our new year 12’s this September and big thank you to our year 13 and 14 students for being supportive and welcoming. Everyone has relaxed and refreshed over the summer break and is now ready to get stuck into the new exciting curriculum, employability opportunities and community projects in 6th form. We already have a café up and running, a fundraiser morning on its way and a trip organised with Into Film. We are all looking forward to the exciting year ahead”.

We would also like to offer a very warm welcome to Mr Ashley, Miss Corey and Miss Burns our new teachers as well as the return of Miss Brooksbank who have been offering very creative and exciting lessons .
