From the Headteacher
Spring has arrived and has brought along all its beautiful colours. As we near the end of the term we are looking back at the highlights, and forward to what lies ahead for our school community
We very much enjoyed welcoming so many primary pupils from within the Bury Schools’ Partnership to King Edward VI to celebrate National Science Week. The planetarium proved to be a wonderful experience, for visitors and our own students alike. Experiencing life in our oceans close up was truly breathtaking.
For World Book Day we welcomed author Sufiya Ahmed to the school. Students in Year 9 enjoyed her talk about literature and the journey she took over many years to achieve success as an author. Her story is certainly an inspiring one. Those who saw the Spring Concert and/or the Festival of Dance were treated to further demonstrations of the quality of performances our students give. We were delighted too by the performance of our U13 Boys’ Rugby team who played very well to finish as Bronze medallists in the recent County Finals.
The examination season has begun already, with formal assessments in practical subjects taking place over the last fortnight and more scheduled for before the Easter holiday. We send our best wishes to the students involved with these, and to all those busy preparing for the main Summer examination season in May and June.
With very best wishes,
