SLT Update July 6th 2018

6th July 2018

  • Congratulations to our group of year 8 students who, over the last few months, have been competing with other Cambridgeshire schools in an enterprise challenge with Cambridge United Football Club, raising awareness, selling tickets, etc. This week, they presented their hard work to the board and gained an amazing 1st place. Well done, Business Enterprise Challenge Winners 2018.
  • Well done to Karl Miller in Year 10, who scored 64 runs for Cambridgeshire U15s against Norfolk U15s last weekend.
  • Also last weekend Harriet Henry and Ruby Want took part in the ACES National Football tournament with Cambridge City Girls under 12s. City won against Nottingham and Rotherham, before meeting Norwich in the final.  After a very tiring hot day the girls played Norwich at 7pm that evening where they had to keep focused in a very high tempo game.  The girls won 2-0.
  • Last Friday, Mr Holmes spent the day at the President Kennedy Academy in Coventry. In the top 1% of schools for Progress 8, President Kennedy has a lot to share, both in terms of outstanding education and also as a school in a Multi-Academy Trust. The day was spent learning about both the school and the wider Trust and involved talking with senior members of staff and visiting lessons. It was a really useful experience with lots of ideas to bring back to improve practice at MVC.
  • A group of 5 students (Victoria Kay, Emma Taylor, Emily Walter, Molly Beasley and Lucy Opoku) went to Newnham College on Tuesday for the inaugural Millicent Fawcett workshop for our most able humanities students. They spent the day at the College completing workshops based on history, geography and politics, based around the suffragettes. A great, challenging day.
  • We had a successful year 10 Parents’ Evening on Tuesday. Many thanks to all the parents who came; hopefully those who wanted to still got home in time to watch the football.
  • On Wednesday, the Year 7 rounders team took part in the district tournament held at Bassingbourn Village College. It was their first competitive event and they worked hard together as a team. Well done to all who took part.
  • Yesterday, our skateboard and scooter enrichment group had a great trip out to Adrenaline Alley Skatepark in Corby.  
  • Year 9 sports leaders have been helping out at Foxton and Hauxton Sports days, with some of them were returning to their old primary schools as leaders for the first time. Despite the heat, everybody worked very hard and enjoyed seeing their past teachers and other staff.
  • 10 year 9 and 10 students are attending the SSAT Aspirations Show in London, which will help them take control over their future through exploring the possibilities open to them. They will have the opportunity to engage with people from different industries and learn about how to overcome the challenges they may face along the way.
  • Reminder: we have vacancies for a Catering Assistant and an Assistant Cook. Please see our website for further details. Closing date is 11th July.
  • Our Summer Concert is at 7pm, Wednesday 11th July. Tickets are available directly from the College Reception, at a cost of £5 per ticket and £3 for concession (under 18). You may also purchase tickets on the door prior to the concert. 
  • Information on the CERN trip for years 9 and 10 in July 2019 may be found on our website.
  • Please see our term dates for the next academic year on the front page of our website. Be aware that school starts for all students on Tuesday, 4th September 2018 .Our sincere apologies for the slight change in dates; this is to bring our term dates more in line with the other academies in our Trust.

Have a good weekend.
