23/03/2020We are excited to announce our Easter competition ...
Get creative whilst you are at home ... see details of our Easter competition below ....
22/03/2020Please remember - any child that can stay at home tomorrow must do so.
This is all about protecting yourselves, protecting our school staff and protecting the wider community.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
@WoolmerHillScho - 22/03/2020 Retweeted Gavin WilliamsonYou should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response.
If you are able to keep your child at home, you should.
@WoolmerHillScho - 22/03/2020Just to reinforce, any child that can be at home next week should be. https://t.co/wi4NsWzf03
20/03/2020It has been a very strange week, and very sad and emotional saying 'goodbye' to our wonderful students today. We probably won't see most of them for quite a while. We will really miss them all!
We also said a sad farewell to Year 11 today. This was not when, or how, we imagined this would be, but we are so proud of how they have handled this situation and wish them all the very best. We will see them all again as soon as we are able and we will arrange a celebration at some point in the not too distant future.
For the small number of students in school next week, please note the school day will run from 9:30am to 2.30pm and we have just heard that the school buses are running and will pick up in the usual places but an hour later than normal. Wear normal school uniform and bring PE kit please.
We would like to send our best wishes to each of our students and families, please look after each other, follow all the advice given, and we look forward to seeing you all again before too long. We are still here and will remain in touch.
@WoolmerHillScho - 18/03/2020Keep calm and ... carry on with congruent triangles!
Year 10 Mathematics students were working hard today using the four rules of congruency to find matching pairs of triangles. Ideas were being shared, discussed and tried out on the tables - great work!
17/03/2020Yesterday, selected students from Years 8 & 9 took part in the Head Smart Wellbeing Ambassador programme delivered by Eikon. A fantastic initiative that will allow students, with help from Miss Fry, to raise awareness of mental health needs and the importance of personal & positive wellbeing. Going forward, our ambassadors will educate and equip other students through activities, events and whole school communication.
13/03/2020This week we have been celebrating National Science Week throughout the school and what a week it has been!
We have enjoyed so many great activities including a visit from the UK's National Space Academy delivering a Space Masterclass to our triple Year 10 students and a visit to Guildford University as part of the Widening Participation programme to explore the careers within the National Health Service (NHS) for some of Year 8.
We have also been making nylon with some of our Year 11 students as part of their GCSE chemistry course, Year 8 extracted chlorophyll from photosynthesising leaves to see if starch had been stored, we have been building new chemicals with our chemistry modelling kits in Year 9 and using the same kits to learn how to balance chemical equations with Year 7.
Such a diverse range of activities cutting across Biology, Chemistry and Physics aimed at investigating the world around us! It's been an amazing week!
