The Week Ahead 

Saturday, 3rd December to Saturday, 10th December 2016

Last week I spoke about the excellence of our Scholarship for all programme and the wealth of academic extension activities that were available, and I was delighted to see so many of our pupils took the opportunity to see the excellent production of Romeo and Juliet that played to packed audiences on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The quality of the acting was there for all to see, and this imaginative production brought  Shakespeare alive to all those who saw it. The next two weeks will be equally rich culturally, with the dance show, jazz, choral and classical concerts, and several performances from the choir in the end of term carol services. These are the sort of experiences that truly enrich, and make Wellington the diverse and exciting environment that it is. Many of our pupils will be involved in these events, of course, but I do hope that even more will go to listen, support and reflect.

That spirit of reflection should also be present as pupils receive their end of term reports and talk over their term with their Tutors and HMs. I hope they will think about all they have achieved, but also consider whether they have met the targets they set for themselves back in September – and see the whole process in a dynamic and positive way. Although we are about to embark on the penultimate week of this term there is still much to be done in the classroom: the IB exams start on 27th April, only 14 teaching weeks away for instance, and GCSE and A levels will follow hot on their heels. Every lesson is important, just as every day at school is, so I trust no one will be tempted to think that the term is all but done.
