LEARN YOUR LINES AND LYRICS! NO SCRIPTS AFTER HALF TERM
The calm, shimmering boat
Travels down the dirty,
Poseidon, the sea king,
Is taking over the boat -
Thrashing this way and that
Trying to take over
But it will never happen.
Sweep the boat
Into a whirlpool…
The golden sun glistens
Clear reservoir of water
as the boat bobbs on.
The purity of the water
finally creates a calm as the boat
recovers from its latest
By René – Year 8
Term had barely started when the English Department made their first extra- curricular visit of the academic year to The Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank. Ten year 8 students and one year 11 student, supported by Ms Bolton, Ms Campbell, Mr Guyver and Mr Warner, braved rush hour traffic on Wednesday 18th September to reach the Southbank for a spectacular celebration
As part of the Southbank Centre’s Literature and Spoken Word Season “REVOLUTIONS” twenty -seven leading writers, musicians and poets read twenty-seven extracts from Mr Mandela’s autobiography “Long Walk To Freedom” .
The evening was insightful yet entertaining and our students were easily the youngest members of the audience. The performances ranged from moving extracts where we learned what Mr Mandela went through on Robben Island to his eventual release after twenty-seven years. Performers such as Sharon D Clarke sang, Beverley Naidoo read extracts and Gillian Slovo remembered her childhood in apartheid South Africa. In addition poets such as LInton Kwesi Johnson and author Ben Okri performed their own work. The two hours flew by and we all agreed it was wonderful to see and hear such a diverse range of performers.
We released an outstanding set of results today- by far the best ever achieved at Northumberland Park.
91% of our Y11 gained 5 or more good passes (A*-C). If English & Maths is included, last year’s record of 41% was dwarfed by a new record of 51%!
In English & Maths, 60% & 62% respectively achieved A*-C grades. There were also outstanding outcomes in other subjects, notably in GCSE Art where 9 out of 24 students (38%) achieved A* grades and 100% achieved A*-C.
Individually, there were many outstanding performances. In particular Sarah Kichou with 13 A/A* grades, of which 8 were A*; Hande Emin with 13 A/A* grades of which 7 were A*; and Ronak Patel with10 A/A* grades, 7 of which were A*.
“The 10% rise in our results this year is testimony to the staff and year 11 student cohort for all their hard work, efforts and perseverance. We have achieved our best crop of A*/A grades this year. This good set of results will serve as motivation and aspiration for our new year 11 cohort.
