It was a privilege to listen to some of our outstanding GCSE musicians recording performances for their examination this week. They then delighted on Thursday evening in a hugely enjoyable concert that showcased their talents. I am always so proud of these pupils, whose dedication and commitment is truly inspiring. I warmly invite all to our forthcoming concerts in December, where you will be able to see more of this superb standard of performance.

A highlight for me this week was the opportunity to take some Year 7 lessons. I was impressed by the focus, thoughtfulness and positivity of all three classes that I took. In the midst of lots of negative national press about schools and young people, it is very important that we all remind ourselves that each day our pupils give of their best and strive to achieve. Of course, they make mistakes and we have to address occasions when such occurs, but we need to speak with optimism, confidence and belief in our young people.
