With great enthusiasm, our Slovak Students arrived to spend 10 days in Atherstone from the 9th to the 20th April. Our students baked some English cakes and made banners to welcome our guests and spent the day with them familiarising themselves with the bustling metropolis that is Atherstone. Students had a full schedule ahead where they researched and investigated the impact of WW2 whilst taking in time in London, Kenilworth Castle and Cadbury World We are thrilled to be able to host our Slovak students and give them a flavour of England.

At the recent Year 11 Parents Evening, there were some most encouraging results from the parental questionnaire. Particularly pleasing responses included 89% of respondents feeling that their youngster is not being bullied or harassed at school and 89% saying that the school provides appropriate homework. When asked whether or not parents felt they were kept well informed about how well their son or daughter was getting on, 92% felt that they agreed that they were well informed. Perhaps the most pleasing responses of all was the fact that 95% of parents completing the questionnaire felt that their son or daughter was making good progress and a staggering 98% said that teaching in the school was good. Only one parent did not say that the teaching was good and they ticked the “don’t know” box.
It is always useful to get feedback like this from parents and whilst we are fully aware that there are areas that we need to work on, it is also good to know that the vast majority of parents have a very positive perception of the school. Quoted from a Parent at Year 11 Parents Evening:
"I would like to thank the staff for all the support and encouragement that has been shown to our son this year"
