Celebrating Continuing Success
For the fourth year in succession under the guidance of Headteacher Julia Vincent we have improved our GCSE results. We are celebrating a rise of 18% over four years in 5 A*- C including English and Maths outcomes.
The most significant improvements were in English which was 18% above the National average, along with Science which has risen above the National average for the Triple Science exams with students achieving 100% success A*- C in Chemistry and Physics.
Our School is equally proud of its vocational subject offers which included ICT (ECDL), Photography (GCSE) and Hair & Beauty (Level 2 Principal Learning) where students achieved an unprecedented 100% success in A*-C grades.
Open Evening 2016
This year’s Open Evening was a wonderful success, with nearly 200 families looking around the school. This was a great opportunity for Year 5 and 6 pupils to make friends and see what their next school could be like.
“Why Warblington?” was Headteacher, Julia Vincent’s key message this year. “What makes us different?”, was the question poised to the parents and future Warblington students. Mrs Vincent said that she believed that us being a small, caring school is the most beneficial factor in providing the best opportunities for our students’ futures.
Around the school visitors were able to experience such things as a taster of literary delights and language exploration in English; a range of experiments, including static spheres and exciting fireball creations in Science and the Maths Department allowed you to take part in the 2016 Maths Challenge and a computer simulation “Walk the Graph”.
In the History area were genuine gas masks on display and the Geography Department had a food quiz, jigsaws and modelling clay activities.
The Arts Department offered a showcase of previous student work, whilst painting props and set for the upcoming show of The Wizard of Oz.
If visitors were feeling a little peckish, Food and Nutrition were showing off their culinary talents with tasting available and MFL offered a language quiz with tasty European rewards.
It was also possible to try a range of activities in our new Sports Hall, Gym and Dance Studio.
This was a wonderful evening and we are looking forward to meeting our new students next year.
