Weekly Update from the Headmaster 7th October

Faced with challenging and probing questioning by our assembled team of professionals from many different walks of life, our Year 11 students impressed this week with the quality of their responses, their ambitions and their all-round development and personality at our inaugural Speed Interview Evening. We offer our thanks to all of the volunteer interviewers and we congratulate the students on their performance.

On Monday, almost fifty parents attended the Mental Health and Wellbeing Evening in the Conservatory at Upton Hall. The school outlined the programme of PSHEE lessons that we will be delivering to the students and the offer of support and involvement from a number of parent medical experts in the programme is much appreciated. Our Junior School pupils and parents also had the opportunity this week to learn how to ‘speak out and stay safe’ online with a visit from the NSPCC.

Our Target Setting Evening on Tuesday raised awareness of our new QHS Diploma promoting Quality, Harmony and Success in all areas of a Quinton education for children in Years 5 to 8. We are delighted that our new scheme is challenging and encouraging our students to make a positive contribution throughout our school community in many different areas.

The Q6 Harvest Festival was a wonderful event in St Michael’s Church. I am pleased that we will be supporting local charities through our harvest donations and also contributing next week to the Indonesian Disaster Fund as we hold a non-uniform day on Friday.

Have a great week!
