Nobody can say politics is boring these days! After an excellent debate and mock election in school on Wednesday, we then had the real thing and the opportunity for most of Year 13 to vote for the first time. At the time of writing we have a hung Parliament and Theresa May will probably carry on as Prime Minister.

Mr Winnick; the end of an era

We are pleased that Pat McFadden has been re-elected to the constituency that our school is in but sad that David Winnick whose constituency contains a lot of our families, and who was the longest serving MP in Parliament, has lost his seat; both Labour MPs have been good servants of our school. We wish Mr Winnick’s successor, the Conservative MP Eddie Hughes, the best of luck and we pray for all our leaders;

Dear Lord

Help them to lead and govern with integrity, and may their integrity guide them and keep them on track. (1 Kings 9:4; Proverbs 11:3a; Psalm 78:72; 1 Timothy 2:1–4)

The reformed GCSEs, please do not compare results to those gained in previous years!

Year 11 have worked hard, but they are facing the same issues as the whole of the country. The new exams are more challenging and a standard pass is now a grade 4, whereas a higher pass is a grade 5. However, we cannot compare these with grades C and above in previous years, because they are now sitting more demanding and longer examinations without coursework elements.
