Hitting the ground running...
We've seen our year groups return full on this week and we've started as we mean to go on. Our new (old) motto is in place and we're asking everyone to start the year by really thinking about what it means - The better prepared the stronger.
For the year 11, they have the rather amazing fact that they have 35 weeks until the start of their summer exams. For the 6th form its recognising the leap that they've made between GCSE's and new courses, or that final,. crucial year before university or work. Other year groups don't escape - Year 10 begin GCSE's, Year 9 this year will take options choices for the courses they will study as they move onto GCSE's...year 8 have a foundation year to consolidate skills and year 7 have begun a whole new school! Phew! There's a huge amount for everyone to learn - and no one has time to rest on their laurels!
The new year 7's are discovering their way around, and I've been so pleased to see older students of all kinds helping them find classrooms. Hornsey School for Girls is destined for real greatness and this week, its palpable.
Welcome back everyone!
