Match Report for Christ the King Year 9 Football Fixture vs Cowes Enterprise College
Fri 24 Oct 2014
The team lost 5-1 but showed great improvement in playing as a unit. We started very brightly with an attacking threat that looked dangerous whenever we were on the ball. An enforced substitution as a result of one of our players not wearing shin pads swung th…
It is quite amazing to think that we have reached the end of our first half term already. After only eight weeks of College, we now have a Year 7 student group who are more at home and more relaxed with our College community than ever and new students in our Sixth Form who have immediately found their place within our College, already having proved themselves to be true ambassadors and champions of who we are and who they now are! I cannot imagine a more successful start to a term. It is only fitting to begin the Principal’s message this week with the warmest of thanks to all of our students for everything they have done and everything they have accomplished over the past half term - imagine what wonders await us as we continue this year!
As we look towards next term, it is important to mention that our Year 11 students will begin the term with Mock Examinations in English and Mathematics. In fact, the Year 11 English Mock Examination will begin as soon as students return to College after their half term break, with all students in Year 11 expected to return and immediately report to the Sixth Form Hall to begin their assessment. During the course of the week, the students will also complete their Mock Mathematics non-calculator and calculator papers on Tuesday and Thursday respectively. These assessments are an important part of the process we undertake to ascertain the level of support each individual student needs to accomplish to their full potential. However, as has been explained to our Year 11 students, the Mock Examinations are not the defining moment of the year, just a part in the process. They support the decision making process of Tier of Entry for our students but further conversation and discussion takes place to ensure all students and parents are aware of the target grades, before final confirmation next year. Most importantly though, these Mock Examinations highlight areas to target so that teachers, home and students are all aware of their individual needs.
It is also important to mention that, whilst the Year 11 students are undertaking these Mock Examinations, some students in our Sixth Form are completing their ‘real’ Examinations to improve on their results from previous examinations series. We wish all of these students the best of luck in whichever paper they may be sitting.
Finally, it is only appropriate that I finish in wishing everyone a well earned rest and a safe half term break, ready to return to College on Monday, November 3rd, ready to continue on the excellent start they have made this year.
