Paralympian Talan Skeels-Piggins inspired year 10 and 11 students when he visited Notley on Friday 30th November 2012. His emotional and heart warming story took students and staff alike on a journey from his motorbike accident, resulting in paralysis from the chest down, to his gold medal achievement. His humorous manner and candidness allowed the audience to appreciate the challenges he has faced over the past 10 years and the positive metal attitude he displays and promotes.
His message of 'have a dream, adopt a positive mental attitude and apply yourself' have had a huge impact on those who listened to him.

The Behaviour and Discipline policy has been updated and was ratified by the Governing Body at the end of November. It now reflects recent changes in legislation including powers to search and confiscate and discipline beyond the school gate. Two linked policies have also been updated, the Exclusions Policy and the Physical Restraint and Intervention Policy.

The Sixth Form Open Evening was busier than ever this year, as we welcomed Year 11 students from across the district. A programme of musical and theatrical performances by our students contributed to a lively and enjoyable evening. Subject staff and students were available to provide advice about our IB and A-level courses. The Science area proved not to be for the squeamish as Biology AS students demonstrated dissection techniques. Student Governors Annabelle Spencer and Shaun Whiteley and the Chair of the Student Council, Harry Williams, addressed a packed theatre, along with members of the Sixth Form Leadership Team.
Applications for 2013/14 are now open and the online form can be accessed via the Sixth Form website.
Year 9 History students visited the WW1 Battlefields and war cemeteries in Belgium on Friday 9th and 16th November. Wreaths were laid on behalf of the Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form community.
