Year 9 Options Evening, 31 January 6.30pm - 8.30pm

Solutions not Sides, is an organisation that visits schools to look at the Palestinian, Israeli conflict which includes a talk and question and answer session with an Israeli and Palestinian living and born in the current conflict.

When Solutions not Sides organisation came into school, we were left in no doubt that there are always two sides to a story.  Yhir from Israel and Ibrahim from Palestine shared their stories, both live in Jerusalem on different sides of the wall, both shared what it was like growing up in that area. Their stories were both sad and full of hope, both made us appreciate what we take for granted, their world was unsafe, both had experienced the deaths of people close to them, many young and born into the conflict with no choice about their circumstances.

Ibrahim, a doctor in Jerusalem and Yhir, a musician also works to bring Palestinians and Israelis together to help them to understand that it is solutions not sides that are needed to bring about change.

Whilst Yhir and Ibrahim shared their stories we appreciated that they were the real stories behind the news we see every day, we also started to understand the complexity of the issues surrounding the division of land between Palestine and Israel, its history and possibilities for a way forward.

There is no doubt that our visit from Solutions not Sides allowed us to gain an invaluable insight into their world.  Many of us came with one view but we all left with a more holistic view, realising that there were many Yhirs and Ibrahims born into a conflict situation that they had nothing to do with……….. we learnt there are no sides, the only way forward is for Palestinians and Israelis to work together for a solution.

    • KS4 Performance Information

      We are delighted with our headline figure of 57.5% A* to C including English and Maths grades 9 to 4 which gives the best like for like comparison of KS4 examination results at this current time; it is our best result which has been steadily improving over the last four years. Our pupils should be exceedingly proud of their achievements; we have a 100% pass rate of pupils gaining at least 1A* to G / 9 to 1  grade; our “Basics” measure has increased to 60% with 12.8% of passes in both English and Maths at the new high level of grades 7 to 9 with 1.6% at grade 9. In recent years we have had a focus on English and with the removal of Controlled Assessments we have developed key skills and knowledge in both English Language and Literature; both subjects have increased outcomes with English Language moving from 61% to 67% and English Literature improving from 56% to 73% which when combined gives the “Best English” performance measure of 77%. We also had strong performances in the STEM subjects of Science including Computer Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths as well as in the EBacc subjects which at 27% is likely to be above the national average once again. We have had some stunning individual performances with 52% of pupils attaining 8 or more A* to C and 9 to 4 grades; 45 pupils gained at least 1 grade at A* with 11 of them also gaining at least 1 grade 9. We are looking forward to welcoming many of our pupils back into our Sixth Form in September and we wish all our students the very best in their future choices.
