WORD of the week
Sagacity - The quality of being discerning, sound in judgement
Welcome to Debenham High SchooL
Message from the Headteacher
Monday 26 September 2016
Last week, Year 11 students started to seriously consider their next steps as they talked over their options and destinations with staff from our school and representatives from the local post-16 providers. Year 11 students will now all have a one to one meeting with our Careers, Advice and Guidance Advisor, Mr Voller, to ensure that they are making wise choices and are aware of all the different options available. On Monday Year 10 and 11 students will hear in assembly how former student, Matthew Cross, made his decisions and how he has made the most of opportunities to study at Welbeck Sixth Form College.
This week we meet Year 10 parents and carers as they embark on their GCSE studies. The information evening on Thursday starts at 7.00pm and will last roughly an hour. We will talk about the new GCSE examinations and the balance of time across the their two-year courses.
Today, Year 8 students head to Harry Potter World as part of their Art, Design and Technology studies. Since they returned to schools students have been looking at the different design disciplines in respect to the Harry Potter series. From set design to costumes and special effects, it has sparked their creativity.
On Thursday Year 11 Geography students are off to the Norfolk Broads, to consider the impact of tourism on the local area. This learning will then form part of their GCSE Controlled Assessment.
Finally on Friday students in Year 7 will take part on our Puzzle Day. This day is led by students in Year 9 and 10 and sets a range of problem-solving challenges to tackle individually and in teams. Get your thinking caps on!
