Claires Court Bulletin
FROM THE HEADS OF SIXTH FORM
This week we have been looking outwards into the community and thinking about the impact we can make to help other people. The Lions Club Swimarathon sponsor money is due in urgently so we are asking students who still owe sponsor money to bring it in on Monday. Following the assembly on Foodshare we will be inviting Sue Brett in to the Sixth Form to talk to already interested students about the practical help they can provide here in Maidenhead.
Year 12 students should be continuing to use Higher Ideas and Jed to explore career opportunities in preparation for our research into university courses.
On Thursday 4 February from 1.20-2.05pm Mr Giles and Mrs Rogers will be running a session on 'Note Taking' in HM4. This is a very timely intervention workshop as students should be knuckling down to revision for their Mock Exams already and making good notes is essential to effective revision. Everyone is welcome!
