New funding for the Science Department

The Science department have been successful in a bid for new beesuits for our students, from the Hall and Woodhouse Community Chest Award. There were around 400 charities and voluntary groups asking for funding and we were one of under 50 groups who were lucky enough to receive some money! We are now looking forward to getting the bee club up and running.

Science Department

Some new house guests arrived in Mr Dell’s classroom. Freya Norton in Year 13 and Huxley Norton in Year 7 have asked us to look after 3 homeless African spiny mice, Athos, Porthos and Aramis – “The 3 Mouse-keteers”. They seem to have settled in nicely and are looking forward to teaching students about adaptations living things can have to survive in dry conditions.

Open Evening

We are looking forward to seeing you at our Open Evening tonight, 5.30-8pm.

School will be closing at 1.30pm but students will need written permission from a parent/carer via their school planner, enabling them to leave school at this time.

German Exchange

We are looking forward to the arrival this week of students and staff from the Gymnasium am Kaiserdom in Speyer for the first leg of this year’s German Exchange. The group arrives on Friday evening and is staying for a week, during which they will be attending lessons in school and partaking in a variety of trips and activities. We look forward to making them very welcome.

A Level Results

16th August 2018

St. Edward’s are celebrating excellent results, with double the number of students scoring A*/A in their ‘A’ Levels than last year.

Jing Jing Chen and her brother arrived in the UK four years ago, unable to speak English. She leaves us to study Economics at Exeter with A*,A*,A*,A*.  Ben Galton achieved A,A,A in Biology, Maths and Physics, and will now study Medicine at Keele University.

Head of Sixth form, Catherine Murphy-Parry said “ As an academic sixth form, our students have risen to the challenge of new ‘A’ Levels exceptionally well, and have performed brilliantly across a broad range of subjects, thanks to their hard work, and the inspiring teaching that they receive at St. Edward’s Sixth form.”

With 98% of our students passing their ‘A’ Levels, and nearly three quarters achieving A* – C, St. Edward’s continues to be a highly successful centre of post 16 education in Poole.
