Thursday 1st March is going to be a very busy day at SWR, please find details of what’s happening below:

World Book Day

We are encouraging as many students as possible to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. A competition will be held in the library at break time and prizes given to the most impressive efforts made. Other literacy based competitions will also be running throughout the day!

Year 9 Financial Awareness Day

Year 9 students will be participating in financial awareness sessions throughout the day.  We would like to thank St.James’ Place in Cheltenham for planning and leading these sessions for our students.  Students are allowed to still dress as their favourite book character or may choose to wear school uniform instead.

Y9 Options Evening

Year 9 students and parents are also invited to attend our Options Evening at 6:00pm on Thursday 1st March.  The Key Stage 4 curriculum and options process will be presented to all students and parents.  Subject Leaders from all options subjects will also be present to provide detailed information about GCSE and BTEC courses on offer.  This will be an ideal opportunity to research appropriate courses before the deadline for completing options on Monday 19th March.

We are carefully monitoring the weather forecasts for Thursday evening and will inform parents and students if options evening in postponed on our website, social media platforms and by email on Thursday afternoon.
