This week we hosted our annual Open Evening for our feeder primaries! It was an excellent turn out to see students from Years Five and Six visit our school and take part in all the fun activities our departments had to offer! It was a great opportunity for parents to discuss the new facilities and refurbishments of Duffryn High and the plans for our £17 million re-development of our site. Thank you to all those who came to the evening and those who helped host the event! It was a great success!
Today we celebrated Roald Dahl Day with our Year 7s! Many students gathered around at lunch time to hear staff read out extracts from their favourite Dahl books including Matilda, The Twits and Boy. Mr. Wilson discussed corporal punishment and what it would have been like for Dahl when he was in school showing a terrifying prop of a cane! Many students quoted that they loved Dahl and all his books and it was nice to listen to some excellent storylines and descriptions of his most famous characters.
Last night we held our annual Awards Ceremony to celebrate all the successes of our students over the past school year. There were many awards given out on the night to recognise students across all subjects and well done to those who received an award! In particular, well done and congratulations to Mohammed Hassan, Abigail Carver and Lenaine Foster-Bennett who all received the ‘Head teacher’s Cup!’
A special congratulations to Mohammed Khan and Elinor Jones who both received ‘Student Male and Female of the Year!’ It was a great evening to recognise all of our hard working students and thank you to everyone who came and supported and those who organised the event!
On Wednesday 9th September we will be holding our annual Awards Evening. This is a great evening where we celebrate all the successes and achievements of our students. The evening will take place in Hall 3 at 7pm and will approximately finish at 9.30pm and all parents and students are welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.
Congratulations to all our students who received their results today! Students arrived early in the morning to open their results and many were overjoyed to see the results they had accomplished. As a school we achieved 76% 5 A*-C and 91% 5 A*-G!
