GCSE League tables show Endowed school highest performing school in Bridgnorth for the fifth consecutive year
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.
Bridgnorth Endowed tutor group representatives, the Headteacher and British Legion held a Service of Remembrance in the newly designed garden at lunchtime on the 11th November 2013. Tutor groups wrote messages on crosses and these were placed in the garden and some of the especially written Year 9 poems were read out in the service. During the lunchtime students placed ‘posts’ on a Remembrance Wall outside the garden.
BES Learns the Ways of the Samurai with Chris Bradford
In December, award winning children’s author Chris Bradford visited Bridgnorth Endowed to give a short talk to Year 7.
Chris prides himself on being able to practise what he preaches and in order to write his award winning series of books he went through intense physical training. Before writing the series of eight Young Samurai books, he undertook a close study of the ways of the Samurai and trained in the use of their deadly sword. Furthermore, before the writing of his new series Bodyguard he became a qualified bodyguard himself, mentored by a personal safety agent to HRH Queen Elizabeth II.
Through the demonstrations of this training in Personal Protection, Martial Arts and Swordsmanship he barged, hit and sliced through the fascinating stories which his paths in ‘method-writing’ had taken him.
During the course of the presentation, many of The Year 7s were able to develop their own skills in both Celebrity Protection and the Ways of the Samurai including Avie Twynam who was called upon to play the President’s daughter as Chris read from his latest book Bodyguard: Hostage.
Another participant, Miles Makie, learned the power of a ‘one-inch push’, a key tactic to avert an enemy Samurai or deal with any crazed Justin Bieber fans in the area. Others also took part in creating a ‘closed-box’ formation around Chris, protecting him from enemy threats as he strutted through the library in his celebrity persona, changing from ‘point man’ to ‘tail-end Charlie’.
After the event, Chris was kind enough to agree to sign some books for the pupils as they queued up to buy his book. They’re all looking forward to his return sometime next year.
