Students and staff at Notley High School in Braintree were celebrating GCSE results this morning.
Well, the weather managed to stay fine for our sports day on July 6th - despite gloomy forecast from the Met Office!
During the half-term week, 36 students from Years 7-9, 5 staff and one parent returned from a very successful Geography field trip to the Bay of Naples in Italy.
There was tremendous excitement at Notley High School this morning when it was realised that 66% of the student's had achieved five or more higher grade GCSE passes. This represents a 7% increase over last year's results.
Monday 16th May saw the gorgeous and fabulous out in force again at Notley for our Prom Night. Cadillacs, Aston Martins, Stretch Limos (can those things get any bigger?!) and even a Hot Dog Van brought our year 11s to the school in style for their big night. A glittering occasion as ever, despite the rain.
PRESS RELEASE - Students and staff at Notley High School in Braintree were celebrating GCSE results this morning. 61% of students achieved 5 or more higher grade GCSE passes and the overall higher grade GCSE pass rate was 65%.
At lunchtime on Friday 18th June, our Year 9 students organised a charity fair in the Sports Hall.
As I am sure you will recall, last year we lost one of our most loved members of staff, Miss Smart, who died peacefully at home following a long illness.
As many of you may know this is Mr Pountney's final year at Notley he is shortly to step down from his position as Deputy Head after 12 years in the school.
Ballgowns, tuxedos and stretch limos abounded on the evening of May 17th as Notley High held its equivalent of the Oscars.
