October & November 2019 Bulletin

“It was an honour to lead the Armistice Day ceremony at Brockington College on Monday 11 November. I was humbled by the respect and reverence that students demonstrated in their approach to such a significant event. This was one of the very few instances where the entire staff and student body is able to come together, in order to mark this occasion. Particular thanks need to go to our head boy and girl, Eddie and Anna, who conducted a reading as part of the ceremony and to Francesca who delivered a solo performance of the Last Post on the French horn. Thanks is also owed to the members of staff who helped to organise the event, namely Mr Barton, Mrs Walker, Mrs Ward and Mr McDonald. If anyone wanted to know about the values taught at Brockington College, or the respect that our students and members of staff hold for others, then our Armistice Day commemoration is a shining example of this work.”

Hear by Right Award Winner!

The Hear by Right award recognises our commitment to involving our pupils in what takes place at Brockington and how we develop as an organisation. This has been awarded by the National Youth Organisation who Mrs Ward has worked with since September 2018. Through this we have begun to create a pupil leadership team with our Ambassadors, that has a say in how we develop as a school.

This year we hope to continue this with new ways for our pupils to participate. As part of this, Mrs Ward had the privilege to attend a Youth Work Summit at Parliament last week and has been involved in the press release.

September 2019 Bulletin

Sadie Batstone, Principal:

“Dear parents/carers

Welcome to this first edition of the Brockington Bulletin for 2019 – 2020 and a special warm welcome to our new Year 7 parents and carers as you join the Brockington family.
August results day was another wonderful event. It’s always one of the highlights of the year to be able to witness students open their envelopes and see the joy they experience when they receive the results they have worked so hard to achieve. The morning was filled with tears and smiles of happiness; we wish all of our former students every success as they leave Brockington College and embark on the next steps of their journey. It would be remiss of me not to celebrate the achievements of students, and there were some outstanding results.”

June & July 2019 Bulletin

Sadie Batstone, Principal:

“At the time of writing I am completing the end of my fourth full week as Principal of Brockington College. During this time there is one thing that has really stood out to me, and that is the positive attitudes and the respect that pupils have shown. I have experienced polite pupils who hold doors open, who have said ‘thank you’ or ‘hello’ and pupils who have picked up litter, as well as pupils who have taken part in the fun run to raise money for charity and pupils who are doing well and trying hard. I’m currently writing a lot of R3 letters and emails to go home! I’ve met many proactive pupils who have brought to me aspects of school life they’d like me to consider, from study leave to plastic waste! As well as pupils who have shown kindness and compassion; even today as I stood on lunch duty, a girl dropped her lunch on the floor, immediately a pupil from another year group helped her to pick it up.”

April & May 2019 Bulletin

A message from our new Principal, Sadie Batsone:

“It’s with great pleasure that I am able to contribute for the first time to the Brockington Bulletin. Over the past few weeks, I have spent time getting to know pupils and staff as well as meeting parents/carers at the Year 7 consultation evening. Until May half term, I will be at Brockington three days a week whilst the Year 11 pupils at my previous school get underway with their GCSE exams. I am looking forward to being able to be at Brockington full time from the beginning of June.”

March 2019 Bulletin

“It was a real pleasure to watch the school production, ‘Seussical’ recently. I was amazed by the talent of our pupils and by the amount of pupils that were involved in this year’s performance. Great credit goes to all the cast and backstage crew, as well as to the members of staff that organised and supported the musical. Well done to all!

We are now in a vital preparation period for all Year 11 pupils, as they prepare for their GCSE examinations in only three school weeks! We know that Year 11 pupils respond differently to the forthcoming exams. Some pupils require the help of parents/carers to keep them calm and to encourage periods of relaxation alongside the revision. Some of our Year 11 pupils need your support in pushing them harder with their revision and in supporting them through asking exam-style questions.”
