What a busy year we have had in English this year! Thanks to all the hard work of the students and staff. Year 10 have completed their OCR Entry Level qualification, year 11 have completed their WJEC Entry Level qualification, a group of students have sat their WJEC English GCSE and year 12 have finished their WJEC Functional Skills exams. 36 girls have been awarded Student of the Half Term. Year 9 have been out and about visiting Shakespeare’s Birth Place. We have had a new set of laptops to use in class and are well on the way to an exciting new library in September 2016.
A fantastic year and if we don’t get to say it in July, have a restful summer holiday and we look forward to what the new academic year will bring.

Congratulations go to the following students who were awarded Student of the Half Term for their
effort, commitment, contributions in class.
Year 7 Katrina Osypiw
Year 8 Ella Kurgo
Year 9 Elisha Turner
Year 10 Nadia Kausar
Year 11 Georgina Toone
Year 12 Beatrice Gibbons
A huge well done to these girls who should be proud of this achievement and whose names are displayed in the English corridor.
Year 9 visited Shakespeare’s Birth Place in Stratford-upon-Avon last half term. Two students have written a blog to review their trip. Have a read on the school’s main home page!
Following their WJEC Functional Skills exams, year 12 have been preparing for the Travel Agent Challenge! In small groups they have been designing a dream holiday. On Monday 20th June, everyone in the school will be given a golden ticket. The Year 12s will set up stalls in the Careers Room. After each class has seen each stall, every student and staff member will give their golden ticket to their favourite dream holiday. Who will win..?
The Three Peaks Challenge and library refurbishment
A huge thank you to the team of staff and drivers who had a go at this challenge. We are also pleased to announce the Friends of Alfriston have generously matched the fundraising total. We are now receiving deliveries of new stock every day and an installation team is booked for August. Watch this space!
If your daughter is in Years 7-10, she will be receiving regular spelling and reading homework. Please support your daughter with these tasks. We suggest 10-15 minutes a day. Both these tasks make significant contributions to students’ progress.
