Community Farm Visits

Marina Capriotti took some students to help on our local community farm this week. They drenched the male sheep for worms, loaded syringes to exactly 10 ML, administered doses and took part in sheep handling. They did a good job with remaining calm, quiet and grounded around the sheep. A couple of sheep jumped out of their pens and Obi and Marshall dealt with it immediately without being asked to, showing brilliant teamwork.

Fourteen -year-old Ed made his debut for the club side at the opening weekend of the GBWR league 1 season at Leicester.

Successful League Table Position

The validated government league tables were published today and confirmed that our second set of GCSE results for Aug 19 were above national and local averages.

Luke Magee, Principal of Wye School, said of their above average Progress 8 score of +0.33:

 

“We are very proud to be the top non-selective school in our area for Progress 8 and one of the top in all of Kent. We firmly believe in the ability of all our students – no matter their background or starting point – to achieve highly so it is hugely gratifying to see this borne out in the progress they are making.

 

“We have now had two excellent sets of GCSE results since opening in 2013, reflecting the hard work, determination and enthusiasm which cascades down throughout our school. With our founding cohort due to receive their first set of A Levels this summer, we are looking forward to celebrating another successful year at Wye School.”

Christmas Carol Service

Wye School held our traditional Christmas Carol Service today in our local parish church, St Gregory and St Martin Church. Rev Holy welcomed us and delivered an interesting sermon on the history of Christmas in England, we learn't some things about how they used to celebrate in past times that included dead mice and the over-eating of sprouts.

Year 7, 8 and 9 students attended, and just about fitted into this historic building, and the Year 7 Choir and Poetry groups contributed to the service.It was a lovely way to end the Christmas term.
