Year 7 and 8 End of Year Reports

Dear Parents and Carers

Year 7 and 8 students are bringing home reports this week. This year we have designed a report around the Middle Years Programme and I feel it would be helpful if I explained a couple of key points around your child’s target level.

On page 6 and on each subject report you will see the phrase, ‘End of Year 8 Grade’. This is the level that your son or daughter is working at and will be the grade that the teacher thinks your son or daughter will achieve at the end of the first stage of the MYP programme. Under each subject report you will see your son or daughter’s target grade. You will also see a breakdown of each subject into four skill areas. Each of these areas is marked out of 8, although internationally few students will achieve 8s as this would represent A* at GCSE or A Level.

Should you want any more information or have any problems that you wish to talk about, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

Mr C Doyle

RHA Goes to the PollsPolls

Students at Royal Harbour Academy exchanged text books for the ballot box to become voters last week on the day of the General Election as the nation's vote was cast. Students from Year 7 up to the Sixth Form engaged in the election, researched manifestos and their impact on the youth and then carried out a mock election in the school. The result ended in a win for the Labour Party with over 400 votes. Year 10 student Ethan explained why he voted Labour; 'Their policies were for the young and working class which generally is most of the students in this school'. Whilst the result was a clear victory for the Labour party in the school, wider in the constituency the Conservative Party and Craig Mackinlay were successful. Year 10 students Harry explained why he had voted Blue on this occasion; 'I felt with the terror attacks in London that Theresa May would do more for public safety'.

MXCPRHA students take part in Motocross Challenge Project

A group of RHA students were lucky enough to be offered a short course with Motorcross Challenge Project that would be used towards their ASDAN alternative curriculum award. The MXCP came to the ACES centre at RHA once a week for 6 weeks, where students took part in a program that included: understanding the motorcycle engine, inspection and replacement of the air filter and other safety checks, as well as the principles of tyre safety and maintenance.

MXCP was founded in 2000 as an independent charity using motor cross and mechanics as a toll to engage young people back into education, training or employment; enabling the young people to develop long term life skills.

Students were also invited to attend the motor cross track in Dover, where they got to put in practice the skills they had been taught and actually have a go on the tracks! Mrs Amos of the ACES centre said: ‘It was fabulous to watch them become more confident and was a fantastic experience. Many thanks to the wonderful team at MXCP for making the whole experience so memorable.’

Year 11 Arrangements

Dear Parents and Carers

Please note that Y11 should be in school for normal school hours up until 16th June, after which they will only be required to attend their exams and scheduled revision sessions.

In acknowledgment of their mature attitude so far, Y11 will be permitted to leave site during break and lunch times starting after half term. If you do not give permission for your child to leave site, please contact the school.

Yours sincerely
