Welcome To Manningtree High School
As we return for the second half of the Autumn term, we welcome some new colleagues. Miss Paveley is taking up post as the Head’s PA, Mrs Street is our new receptionist and Mrs Bateman takes on the new role of pastoral support administrator. Mrs Jenkins, who is our new Senior Pastoral Manager, is with us every Monday in the short term and will be full time after Christmas.
During this half term year 11 students will be taking their first set of pre GCSE rehearsal exams. They have had some really helpful advice about how to revise which they can now put into practice. The more revision that goes on now, the easier it will be to learn everything in the summer.
There are a number of special events this term. The school will be represented at the Act of Remembrance in Manningtree, we have Charities Week to look forward to and also the Awards Evening to which last year’s year 11 come. Students are also busy with Guys and Dolls rehearsals. There is a design a Christmas card competition running which is open to all year groups.
Year 7 have settled in very well. They have embraced the Accelerated Reader programme with great enthusiasm and are record- breaking readers in comparison to previous years. This is fantastic news, as reading expands students’ general knowledge, imagination and vocabulary as well as their English skills. Thanks to all the parents who are encouraging their children to read.
Please remember that Friday 25th November is a non pupil day.
