Students and staff gathered at Madeley Court hotel for an evening of great food and music to celebrate the end of exams and the start of the long summer break before returning to school in September. The men looked very smart in their suits whilst the ladies looked beautiful in a range of dress styles. Some arrived in grand style with a range of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other super cars or classic and vintage cars including a second world war jeep although the most unusual form of transport was Justine Yardley who arrived on her horse in full ball gown.

Bridgnorth Endowed school 6th formers have been busy raising funds and collecting donations for their chosen Charity the Bridgnorth Food Bank. The whole school has supported this charity by holding an ‘own clothes day’, participating in the Bridgnorth Walk and donating food and toiletries. The final presentation afternoon took place on Friday with tutor group representatives ‘handing over’ donations to Liz Bird who came into school on behalf of the Food Bank. Liz bird also presented all students with a certificate of thanks.

Taste of Tanzania

An exciting event was held by the Bridgnorth Endowed School charity ‘Taste of Tanzania’ to celebrate the recent launch of their ‘coffee bags’.   Guests were tempted by a coffee cocktail to welcome them to the evening which was hosted by Peepo’s Restaurant and attended by local business, charities and parents.

‘Taste of Tanzania’ is led by 11 enterprising sixth form students who are fortunate to be mentored by Carrie Bate of ‘the little coffee bag co.’ and Mrs Jo Jones who works with the Headteacher in developing the school partnership with Umonga Secondary School in Dodoma. Teacher, Jo Jones described the ‘Taste of Tanzania’ as a “Fantastic cause run by talented students.”

The company was created after the Year 12 students learnt of the hardships that orphans of Umonga Secondary school face every-day in trying to achieve an education. The children regularly go without meals and have to learn while being distracted by constant hunger. With this in mind the students decided that with every sale of their coffee they would be guaranteeing hot meals for the children in our partner school.

 

 

GCSE League tables show Endowed school students perform brilliantly for fifth consecutive year

Small Science

Staff and students at the Endowed school were celebrating continued success when GCSE league tables were released last week. Head-teacher, Phil Loveday said, “every year the Government measures schools in more and more precise ways with the ‘Best 8 value added measure’ being the latest and most precise. It is a good measure because it takes into account student progress across a broad range of subjects including English, Maths, Science, a language, and a humanities subject. Last year we were disappointed with a blip in maths results following four years of fantastic results in this subject which makes such a great progress figure of over 1000 even more amazing. Achieving a ‘best 8’ result of over 1000 means that students make better progress at the Endowed than students nationally.
