Well done Year 11!

As the exam season draws to a close, we would like to say a huge ‘WELL DONE’ to our Year 11s on their fantastic attitude and effort in their GCSE exams and revision sessions. Following the disruption of the last two years, it’s inspiring to see how well they are approaching this challenge. We wish them all the very best with their results, which will be published on Thursday 25 August.

York Pride, Saturday 18 June

A reminder that we will be taking part in the York Pride parade tomorrow. Students and their families are very welcome to join us or show their support along the route. We will be meeting at Lendal (outside the old post office building) from 11.00 – 11.15am; the march starts at 11.45am and is expected to reach the Knavesmire at about 1.00pm. More details and the route can be found on the York Pride website.

Please note that any students attending do so in an individual capacity and the school can’t take any responsibility for them.

Calling all performers!

A message from Mrs Sladen:

I am very pleased to be able to announce that, following a two year break due to Covid restrictions, our annual musical production is back!! I will need actors, singers, dancers and backstage crew to be involved and help make this December’s production our best ever… however, I have not completely decided at the moment which musical we will perform (although I do have a few favourites in mind!) as I am not exactly sure who would like to be involved!

To this end, I am going to hold auditions on Wednesday 22 June after school in the Drama Hall for any students, in any year group, who would like to be considered for a role, big or small. Auditionees need to prepare a song from a musical (any you like, as long as there is a backing track available on YouTube) that they will perform to staff involved in the production in a ‘closed’ audition. I will audition students first and then be able to make a decision on which musical we will perform once I have an idea of the numbers who wish to be involved and the talent that I know is out there.
There will be a separate meeting and audition for students who wish to be involved in dancing and backstage work in the new academic year. If there are any questions please don’t hesitate to come and see me in the Drama Hall, otherwise, I look forward to being entertained by all our talented students soon – see you then!

The Active Lives Children and Young People’s survey

Last July, Millthorpe School was selected to take part in The Active Lives Children and Young People’s survey, commissioned by Sport England. The survey gathered data on how children engage with sport and physical activity, providing anyone working with children aged 5-16 key data to help understand children’s attitudes and behaviours around sport and activity.

The project is due to end next month, so we would like as many students as possible to complete the survey again to help the researchers assess the impact of the project.
