We all know far too well that there are many misconceptions out there regarding the English major. Unfortunately, many of these misconceptions are held by English majors themselves. Many current students in pursuit of an English degree find themselves committing to the major despite the "fact" that "they won't earn any money" and "won't find a job." (A quick search for "English major" on Twitter alone will shed some light on this popular conclusion.) So, when they do graduate and find a job that involves writing/editing/marketing/publishing/social media/etc., they might feel grateful that they even found a position related to their degree... even if the pay is low (sometimes, don't see the immense value in our own degrees, why should the average employer? Many employers know and take advantage of the fact that they're offering some English majors an opportunity that they never truly expected: a decent paying job doing something related to their degree. (Sure—we know there are exceptions.) Many English majors will happily take those job offers without a second thought. In this article, you'll find information regarding the income of English majors using data from national organizations and anecdotal data that we have collected from our audience. A couple of important notes before we get started: There are jobs for those with English degrees out there, but like any degree in any subject, it can sometimes be a real challenge to find a job. We're not blind to that fact, but hopefully, you will be able to use the information below to empower you in your job search and career. When you're researching jobs, negotiating your salary, asking for a raise, and choosing a field to enter, you'll definitely want to educate yourself on wage norms and expectations. We'll let the following information speak for itself. The graph below shows data from the May 2014 National Occupational Employment and Wage Estimates report from the Occupational Employment Statistics via the Bureau of Labor Statistics from the United States Department of Labor website. We have focused on common careers for English majors. Free CSS has 2714 free website templates, all templates are free CSS templates, open source templates or creative commons templates.
Refuge d'Oredon – Portes du Néouvielle La réserve du Néouvielle qui s’étend sur 2313 hectares et entre 1800 et 3091 mètres d’altitude est un espace naturel unique. Elle est une des premières réserves naturelles de France (créée en 1936). Son exposition Est-Ouest lui permet de bénéficier d’un climat particulièrement clément, on parle alors de microclimat. Les pins à crochet battent des records d’altitude et de longévité dans ce massif granitique aux arêtes acérées, où l’on découvre un véritable chapelet de lacs (plus de 70), principale caractéristique de la réserve. Construit entre 1869 et 1884, le barrage d'Orédon, destiné à alimenter le département du Gers par la Neste via le canal de la Neste est le plus ancien barrage pyrénéen. En 1917, un canal souterrain relie sa retenue à celle de l'Oule, permettant ainsi l'accroissement de puissance de l'usine hydroélectrique d'Éget-Cité en vallée d'Aure. En 1922, un laboratoire de biologie (ou « Station Biologique du Lac d'Orédon ») est créé sur le rivage du lac d'Orédon, face à l'intérêt scientifique du site du Néouvielle, notamment révélé par le Professeur Jammes. Cette station accueillera de nombreux scientifiques et étudiants qui étudieront le lac d'Orédon, mais aussi son bassin versant, les mares et zones humides qui l'entourent et l'écologie d'autres lacs glaciaires proches. Au coeur de la réserve, afin de préserver le site, la circulation en voiture est règlementée et payante. Du 1er juin au 30 septembre, vous pourrez accéder avec votre véhicule personnel aux lacs d’Aubert et d’Aumar avant 9h30 ou après 18h30. La circulation dans le sens de la descente est possible toute la journée. En journée, le stationnement est prévu au parking d’Orédon et un service de navette vous est proposé. Durant le trajet, des commentaires et un descriptif du site vous seront exposés. Notre établissement construit vers la fin des années 1800 est une grande bâtisse en pierre de taille niché au milieu des pins à crochet. Il vous permet de découvrir un “havre” de paix à près de 2000 mètres d’altitude, un lieu unique dans les Pyrénées. ) avec des chambres de 2 à 5 couchages (chambre Double ou Familiale) pour lesquelles les draps et serviettes de toilette peuvent être fournis (formule confort); enfin une partie Chalet avec des dortoirs pour les familles de 2 à 5 couchages et pour les groupes de 8 à 10 couchages (prévoir les sacs). Nota : Des sanitaires sont disponibles (WC et douches) à chaque étage. Prévoir sac à viande ou sac de couchage pour les “frileux” (sauf formule confort). Location drap : 10.00€ Location sac à viande : 3.00€ Location serviette de toilette : 3.00€ Commande des pique-nique possible jusqu’à la veille du départ. Avertir si retard Les temps de randonnées sont indiqués sans les arrêts et pour un marcheur moyen. Commencez toujours par une randonnée facile pour évaluer votre niveau. Préférez un départ matinal à un retour tardif (risque d’orage). De bonnes chaussures, une veste coupe-vent, un pique-nique, de l’eau et des lunettes sont indispensables.

Here is a selection of their projects: Great news: we have received the Silver Health in School Award by demonstrating the positive impact our health promotion work has had on developing healthier behaviour. In particular, we have increased the uptake of school meals. This has resulted from the changes made to the school canteen as a result of our School Council’s suggestions. We now have a hot food takeaway at lunchtime, extra tills to address the time taken to purchase food and the separate serving point within the Youth Wing to buy food and drinks. All of this has only been possible because of the Brimsham’s amazing canteen staff who have support these changes for better service within Brimsham Green School.

Just wanted to let you know that you were very close in the running for 2 of the awards on Saturday, judges were very impressed.

This means that Jaye will have the much sought after opportunity to experience life at the University of Bristol. If you’re a prospective Year 7 student, why not book a place on one of our Brimsham Live! If you’re a prospective post 16 student, come along to the Cotswold Edge Open Evening on Thursday, 13 October. Tuesday 4th October Student Leadership I felt really proud to read this great feedback on our sixth form students who went to Hosanna Primary School in Uganda, and how they have shared their experiences with St Paul’s (whose children raised funds to support the children of Hosanna). “I want to say how much we were impressed by your students. They were very mature and spoke confidently, articulately and with huge enthusiasm. There is no doubt that the trip had a big impact on them, as well as being a real success and making a difference to the lives of the African children. They were very honest and open with their personal journeys, which made it very engaging and interesting for all of us. We had the full range of ages within our assembly - right from our YR children up to the adult members of staff. We were all equally "spellbound" hearing about it and seeing the photos and video. It was particularly nice for the children to see the pictures from the safari. The talk was an ideal way to round off our small involvement with the charity. Please pass on our appreciation and praise to the students involved.” Monday 3rd October CONGRATULATIONS! Our first ever Hawkesbury House Captains have been elected, and I am delighted to announce that Connor and Jess have been appointed.

Staff have worked hard on INSET day today, putting the final touches on our plans for this academic year. We’ve celebrated students’ exam results, and been proud to share your successes. Our A Level and GCSE results have truly been ‘AB’ Fab – we have so many students who exclusively secured A and B grades!

This includes St Paul’s Catholic Primary who raised £250, a magnificent total. In particular I’d like to thank the very generous boy in KS1 who raised £9.65 by selling his toys to his sister! Thank you to the judges for their time and expertise; we were lucky enough to have Tom Herbert from Hobbs House Bakery and Ann Murray from Cooking4. She paid mainly in 1p and 2p coins – the evidence is below! They commented on how impressed they were with the standard and quality of our students’ practical dishes. The money from St Paul’s will enable our Uganda Team to take an extra two students from Hosanna Primary School on safari with them. Tom and Ann are “pleased with the local talent and looking forward to next year’s event.” As always, a huge thank you to the Rotary for organising and sponsoring this event. Staff will be paying for the privilege of stressing over the stove and panicking over their pans to raise money for Brimsham Bakers. Monday 4th July Fantastic Primary Sport Festival event last week at Brimsham, well done to all of our Sports Leaders and Miss May for co-ordinating the leadership, you did a brilliant job.

Friday 24th June New Year 7 Induction It was great to round off two successful days with our prospective Year 7s by meeting all of their parents last night at our Induction event. This morning I was delighted to read this feedback from a parent: “Thank you for this evening. I got a real sense of moving off on a new journey this, both as parents and Brimsham as a school. I felt that there was a high level of enthusiasm and positivity from both the staff and the pupils. They are great ambassadors for you and should be congratulated. It was great to be able to have time to meet members of staff and they gave parents the sense of valuing the chance to listen to them. The importance of the school values came across strongly as did the pastoral care for the pupils. As a parent I felt excited to be off on this journey with you! ” Thursday 24th June Good luck to the following Year 10 students who left today to embark upon their Duke of Edinburgh expedition in the Brecon Beacons: Tom Groves, Matt Pittaway, Nathan Hardwick, Zara Poole, Scarlet Boulton, Ellie Davies, Hannah Blakeley, Jess Pugh, Louis Harvey, Jack Murawa, Meghan Sell Jess Sheppard, Beth Box, Ella Bryant, Beth Carriaga, Taylor Maddox, T’Yanna Wigginton, Oliver Mc Pherson, Will Bolan, Tierney Tudor, Charlie King, Tilly Wyatt Molly Mac Farlane, Jess Summers, Ella Maggs, Connor Boulton, Frankie Brannon, Kai Hailstone and Jacques Flanders (year 11). Please return Mr Powell, Mr Marsh, Mr Salt and Mr Rundle to us safely! Tuesday 21st June Thank you and well done to the Student Council and Mrs Crocker for the huge amount of work they have done to establish our House System - we are all now proud members of a House. Monday 6th June School Production cast list announced - well done to everybody who secured a part. Roald Dahl fans are in for a treat: The Witches and Revolting Rhymes will be performed in October 2016 at Brimsham Green School. Good luck to our Assistant Directors, all of whom are students. Monday 23rd May Well done to Blake, who came FIRST in the Junior Autograss race (12-16 year old category) this weekend which took place near Yeovil. Not bad considering he’s only been racing for just over a year and he was competing against a National finalist! Well done Mr Mills for securing the school our Health in Schools BRONZE certificate. Thursday 28th April Lovely feedback from a visitor to school today: “I wanted to email you to thank you for your hospitality today. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you, your staff and your students. There is such a positive feel in the school and the students are very clearly proud of their school.” Friday 22nd April No wonder that Brimsham have got through to the National Boccia Finals in Sheffield later in May – click the link to see one of our Boccia stars and their coach (a.k.a. Thursday 21st April Aren't Year 7 African Masks brilliant?! In other brilliant news, we have just heard that Ella Bryant, Year 10, has been accepted for a place in the National Youth Theatre. Mrs Hitchcock, our Head of Drama said, “In my 12 years of teaching Drama Ella is only the second ever student I know of to be accepted. She worked so hard on her audition and I’m very proud of her! ” Wednesday 20th April The School Council organised 'Clean for the Queen' along Broad Lane. Mrs Crocker and Ms Hewitt were part of the Dream Clean Team, too! We were glad to be able to help improve our local community. Wednesday 16th December I am so sorry to have missed 9R and 9H’s ‘Santa Run’ today, they were raising money for Cancer Research and Hosanna School. Their sponsorship money is still coming in, but Mrs Brompton has told me that they have already raised £150. Not only has Nikolai gained a coveted place on the Access to Bristol University Higher Education programme, but we just heard that he’s also been selected for ‘On Track to Bath University’. Well done 9R and 9H, and thank you to Mrs Brompton and Mrs Cotterell for their support. I am biased, of course, but I think Team Ms Garland, Mr Whittock and Mr Allen definitely beat Team Professionals and Mr Powell in the serving stakes. Thank you, to our Professional Catering Team for putting up with Mr Powell J We hope everyone enjoyed their lunch! Nikolai will now be involved in a sustained programme of activities with other A Level students across the region, designed to support entry to the University of Bath or the other participating universities (Cardiff, Oxford, Reading and Southampton). Friday 20th November Good luck to all Year 11 students who are sitting their mock exams over the next 15 days. Wednesday 11th November Staff and students remember those who have lost their lives in conflicts around the world. Thank you to all students and staff who made our Brimsham Live! A busy Cotswold Edge Open Evening took place yesterday; Year 11, have you got your application form completed? If you’re not sure about which courses might suit you best, why not talk to some current Year 12s? A big thank you to the whole of Year 9 who represented Brimsham Green at the Ambitions event at UWE. Thank you to Mrs Whittock for playing the Last Post, and to our Prefects and Student Council members for planting students’ poppies. Mr Allen told me how proud he was of you for being so well behaved and engaged in the careers event. Monday 9th November Our Staff and Sixth Form Book Group launches today – thank you to Year 13s Ben Townsend and Alex Tarbox for coming up with the idea and setting up the Book Group. I hope the day was useful in helping you think about your KS4 curriculum choices you will be making over the next two terms. We will let you know what we are reading as soon as we can agree on this! Monday 19th October Friday 4th September Term has started exceptionally well, and on the back of our best ever set of GCSE results! 61% of students attained 5A*-C including English and mathematics, and this is very likely to be significantly above not just the Local Authority but also the National Average. Well done to students and thank you to staff – onwards and upwards! Year 7 students arrived on Wednesday looking incredibly smart. The thing that has struck me the most is how polite they all are, and how happy they have been - it’s lovely to see smiling faces, albeit looking VERY tired at the end of their first week. Cotswold Edge, our Sixth Form provision, has also launched this September. Over 200 students have enrolled and are commencing their studies in A Level Film, A Level Further Maths, BTEC Music, A Level Physics, A Level Drama – the list goes on! Ms Garland Thursday, 13 August The waiting is finally over! WELL DONE to students: 100% pass rate, and 41% of students gained A*-C grades! This enables students to pursue their ambitions, and here’s just a flavour of their destinations and courses: Mercedes apprenticeship; Medicine degree, Exeter; John Lewis Partnership apprenticeship; Archaeology degree at Winchester; RBS apprenticeship; Astrophysics degree, Liverpool; MOD apprenticeship with the Ministry of Defence; Architecture degree at Cambridge; Primary Teaching degree, Gloucester; Neuroscience degree at Nottingham; Drama degree, Gloucester; Masters’ degree in Engineering at Swansea; Environmental Sciences degree, Plymouth; Economics degree at the University of Greenwich; Iain Williams apprenticeship; Network Rail apprenticeship; Maths degree, Sheffield Hallam AND THE LIST GOES ON…. Keep in touch, we would love to know how you all get on. Thank you to all staff who have supported our students – the difference you make is critical. Friday, 24th July Band Tour have returned from their European Tour of the Costa Brava! Thank you to Ms Devonald for organising such an amazing trip. The trip couldn’t have happened without the support of Mr Balcombe, Mrs Whittock and Mr Chapman, and also Mrs Wilkins in the office, processing all of the logistics and monies ‘behind the scenes’… I was delighted to receive a letter from the Tour Operator telling me what a great time our students had, and how they were a credit to the school. Here’s an excerpt from the letter – you can see why I would feel so proud of Brimsham students and staff. "The Students were a real credit to the school, impeccably well behaved, tremendously patient on a very long journey and always on time and well presented for their concerts. They did your school proud and certainly fulfilled your school mission in terms of being inspiring and also excelling whilst they were on tour and representing the school." July The school term has finished for students! Thank you to all support staff who will be continuing to work through the holidays to make sure we are ready to open again in September. Sadly we have said goodbye to some long-serving members of staff today, and I would like to wish them well, and thank them for all of their hard work, commitment and contributions to the school: Ms Halden, who is moving to a school in Wiltshire; Ms Yates, who is moving to the Isle of Wight; Ms Hillier, who is taking up a promoted position in Bath and North East Somerset; Mrs Ford, who is starting up her own jewellery making business; and Mrs Tiernan, who is developing her work with non-governmental and aid organisations. Special mentions are due for Mrs Kuusik, who is leaving us after 22 years of teaching; Mrs Liew, who is leaving us after 24 years, and taking up an exciting promotion at a school in Bristol; and last but definitely not least, Mrs Wolstenholme, who after 27 years is moving to take up a well-deserved promoted position in South Gloucestershire. Don’t forget, everyone: term starts on Wednesday, 2 July Prefect Team, 2015/16: Many congratulations to the following students who have successfully applied and been selected as Brimsham Green Prefects for 2015/16: Jeanny Alavanza, Finlay Barringer, Dylan Bennett, Sam Bidder, Chloe Bliss, George Birnie, Max Calderan, Maisha Choudhury, Kirk Clifford; Ellis Conway, Charlie Cook, Ben Ellis, Freya Fairbanks, Chloe Harmsworth, Mike Holden, Jess Hull, Oliver Johnson, Chelsea Mac Iver, Tom Meaden, Ravi Mistry, Olivia Press, Sophie Press, Daisy Pugh, Courtney Reeves, Lauren Soper, Ebony Sprague, Emily Summerill, Jasmine-Jade Todd, Abbie Walker, Aaliyah Wilmott and Jake Wootten. Well done, and the staff are really looking forward to working with you as student-leaders within the school. Friday, 3 July This week saw us complete most of our Year 6 parent & student welcome meetings. Thank you to our Primary Partner schools – you’ve been really accommodating, and it’s much appreciated. Now time to take a deep breath and say ‘thank you’ to: Airbus; the Army; Aquiris Plumbing; Babcock; City of Bristol College (Animal Care/Car Panel Beating/Electrical Engineering); Keepmoat; Marshfield Bakery; Mouchel; the NHS; S&B Automotive Academy; South Gloucestershire Early Years Team; SGS Filton (Hair & Beauty/Media); and last but not least Mitie. All of these organisations gave their time very generously on Thursday to support our Industry Day for Year 10 students. Mrs Johnson and Mrs Filer – you did a great job of organising the day! Highlights had to be getting to hold a python (and no, Zico, they don’t eat Headteachers!!! ) and getting to wear an ‘ageing’ suit, designed to replicate what it would be like to suffer from arthritis and have really impaired mobility. The students enjoyed opportunities as diverse as dressing up in battle fatigues, painting each other’s nails, and engineering challenges. This week also saw success for our Year 11, 12 and 13 students at the Rotarian’s Young Innovator Awards. Superb products, ranging from stylish lamps; to designer chairs; to raised camp beds were exhibited. Words won’t adequately convey the students’ achievements, but you’ll be really staggered by what you see. And finally…if you’re a Year 12 student, visit https://com/talks - Mrs Hitchcock has a great idea about using these in Tutor time next year. What a busy 48 hours: Year 6 Induction, new Manga delivery, Year 11 Prom, Year 10 Art Trip to London…If there was a collective noun for our incoming Year 6 students it would be BRILLIANT! If you were one of those students then you were confident, polite, interested and engaged - we are really looking forward to you joining us in September. Your Tutors were especially impressed; I received comments like: “My whole group were great, they threw themselves into everything! I am really excited about joining the school in September and being their Tutor – a really friendly bunch of pupils.” Thank you to our partner primary schools for allowing your students to join us for our Induction Days – I’m sure they’ll tell you all about their visit on Friday! ps Thank you to Mrs Gale – as ever, a wonderful job of organising transition, and a huge ‘well done’ to our Year 7/11 student helpers – you were real Brimsham Stars! The excitement in the Study Centre on Wednesday was something to behold – students clambering to get the first sight of the new Manga delivery. If you haven’t yet read The One Piece series, you’d better get in line, the students are ferocious fans! Year 10 Artists missed the excitement, I am afraid, although they did have the excuse of being in London. A great day, I hear – thank you, Art Department and Ms Marquis. And then there was the Year 11 Prom last night at The Grange. I can honestly say it is the best Prom I have ever had the pleasure of attending (apart from the Cha Cha Slide – sorry for not being very good, Chloe! ) Every single member of staff said the same thing: they are such a lovely year group! Now your Head of Year and Tutors are bound to be biased, but…THEY ARE RIGHT! Mrs Davis has been eagle-eyed and discovered that we have Bee Orchids on site – beautiful! You looked amazing and I hope you all had a wonderful time. Sunday, 21st June This message that I received today from a student really sums up why all staff at Brimsham choose to do the jobs they do: what other job could give you the privilege of working with young adults like this? Over the past 5 years at Brimsham I have truly had a wonderful time and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the teachers and staff who have helped me through the journey. I know full well that they have prepared me for any future challenges I may face and any successes that may come will be due to their hard work. I am sad that I have to leave but I would love to have the opportunity to one day return as a guest speaker or do something for the school as a token of my gratitude. Wednesday, 17th June A huge well done to all year 11s – your GCSEs are over!!! So many staff have told me how impressed they have been with your preparation and mature approach to your GCSEs – I expected nothing less! Enjoy your summer break and return to us safely on GCSE results day (20 August) – 64 days and counting! I am looking forward to welcoming you back to Cotswold Edge Sixth Form in September. Brimsham ‘Live’…today we have held the first of our Brimsham ‘Live’ events, where we throw open our classroom doors to parents and students in Years 4 & 5. If today was anything to go by, then please book a place for next Term. Thank you to students and staff – I have been repeatedly told how welcoming and engaging you were. I have been so impressed with 8R this week, organising their charity activities for Hosanna Primary School. And finally…a MASSIVE congratulations to Josh Snook who has been selected to participate in the English School Games being held in Gateshead in July. We are delighted to be able to support you in attending. I bet you can beat your Personal Best, Josh – aim for a sub 49 seconds time… Monday 18th May Brimsham’s Monday 18th May What an amazing opportunity! Students interested in science / technology / engineering / maths have the chance to visit the team developing Bloodhound, the vehicle being designed to beat the Land Speed record. You need to be in Year 8 or 9 - sorry Year 7s and 10s! Friday, 15 May Well done to Head Girl, Emily Sinha-Royle, for organising our mufti day and Sixth Form cake sale: £1022 raised for Nepal. To be able to be part of an international project is so exciting. A very small selection of Mrs Howarth's and Year 7's cushions. Wednesday, 6th May Success in Sheffield: Brimsham came third in the National Schools’ Boccia Finals (missing out on second place by ONE POINT! Wednesday, 29 April Mrs Howarth’s 7y/Dt3 Textiles group have produced the most brilliant cushions I think I have ever seen from a Year 7 group. I am looking forward to sharing the photographs with you shortly. GCSE Artists have done really well today; their final pieces are impressive. Having such a balance of boys and girls participating is great. I’m wondering if the trophy they will surely bring back will be as heavy as the Regional Table Top Cricket Trophy I had the pleasure of presenting on Tuesday to Lauren Brickwood and Isaac Walker-Cox – it weighed a tonne! Wednesday, 22 April Election fever has hit Brimsham! Today I’ve had two really challenging conversations with a Year 11 and a Year 13 student, both of whom know exactly who they would vote for, if that was their right. They were strident in their views on the necessity of Trident, how the Ministry of Defence must be properly funded, how welfare should not be available to people who are capable of working but refuse…I’ve been told their views on the previous Secretary of State for Education, what they think of academisation…The list goes on! I sincerely hope these conversations are happening at home, too, and my advice if this is the case: be prepared! Monday, 20 April Very soon these seats in our Outdoor Classroom will be filled with students (but thank you to Ms Lambert and Mrs Hamil for their help in 'staging' the scene)... Our Outdoor Literacy project launches this week - I'm excited to see the classroom in action, Mr Fox! Friday, 17th April - How the first week back has flown by! Uganda Team 2016 Update: fundraising is already underway, despite the students being on the cusp of their GCSEs and AS level examinations. Meeting with the team on Tuesday it is clear that they are wasting no time in championing the cause of Hosanna Primary School, in Kampala. I wish them the best of luck: trying to raise £25,000 is no mean feat. Well, it really as good as Wednesday night's audience said: yesterday's Dance Show was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I really hope you were able to join us for one of the performances. Nearly one fifth of the school took part, from Years 7-11, and Ms Hayward's, Ms Hillier's and Ms May's choreography was really impressive. Even better still, though, was the choreography of the Year 11 BTEC students - what a talented group of individuals! If you didn't get a chance to see the Show, don't worry - undoubtedly next year's show will be just as good: the KS3 students' performances were really polished, and there are many rising stars... I am sworn to secrecy and cannot say anymore, but suffice to say that I am going to be supporting our very talented Year 7 student over the next few Saturday's... 17th March 2015:“Bon Voyage” and “Gute Reise” to our Year 8 students, who set off to Paris and Kӧln today. Another group of students have set off on a journey to Exeter today, to take part in the Regional Boccia Finals – Best of luck, Team Brimsham! Exeter is proving popular destination for Brimsham students: Ms Davis is soon to be taking our STEM Club there to participate in the Big Bang, having won their regional final on 10 March, presenting their Eco-Leisure projects. Well done, and good luck to: Isaac, Adelaide, Cameron, Gabrielle, Kevin and Macy. 8th March 2015: Have you supported our Young Enterprise team yet? They still have 'Cookies in a jar' for sell, and I can confirm, having tasted just a smidgen from the right hand corner, that the final product is delicious! Perfect as a Mother's Day present, or an alternative Easter gift. Available from Main Reception, while stocks last.... 5th March 2015: I cannot believe it is only Thursday! Monday: We had the best Full Governing Body meeting ever! Four fabulous Student Council Representatives gave a presentation to the Governors about the School Council, how it was formed, what improvements they are leading and what impact they hope to have. Tuesday: Ms Hayward told me that the seven KS3 girls who entered a national competition have won a prize for the school because their new rounders bat design was so good! Thank you to Danielle, Gemma, Helena, Jas, Abbie, Amy and Zara. Wednesday: Only half way through National Careers’ Week and Brimsham is on the front page – well done Mrs Filer! The opportunities for students in school are really varied. The elephants have gone from Reception and have been replaced by some outstanding Year Ten Textiles work. And that’s not to mention Multi-Faith Day, World Book Day, the Resource Base Coffee Morning, the Ambitions event and Maths Challenge… 12th February 2015: Break-time treat: On a cold day, as it was yesterday, my outside Break Duty was significantly improved by Axel in Year 8 coming to show me his Bronze Medal awarded in a recent Judo competition! Axel competed in the BRITISH SCHOOLS 2015 QUALIFIER and because he did so well he is now on his way to the National Finals! 23rd January 2015: Highlights of my week: Sixth Form: Students presented to an assembled group of prospective business leaders, promoting the advantages of the Young Enterprise Scheme. Outcome: two of our students were offered apprenticeships on the spot!!! In this week that we mark Democracy Day, I am delighted to congratulate everyone who participated in Youth Speaks, the Rotary Club's public speaking competition, the finale of which took place last week. Key Stage 4: Students in Mrs Liew’s Year 10 science group achieving above target on their Controlled Assessment – so many commendations, so much hand-shaking Key Stage 3: 9E’s fantastic 3D plasticine models – made in just one lesson. The judging criteria are incredibly precise and challenging, so everyone who took part had their contributions carefully scrutinised. Well done to the overall winning team, who spoke on the subject of Obesity. We wish them luck for the next stage of the competition, the District Final. If you have been eagerly awaiting our guest speaker's transcript from December's KS4/5 Celebration Evening it is now available Jon, an ex-Brimsham student who is now a lecturer and journalist, talks really frankly about making mistakes, learning from them, having contingency plans and being REALLY determined. He reminds us that we need ambition and to be prepared to work hard if we are going to excel and 'stand out from the crowd'. So, to all of the prospective candidates for the 2016 trip to Uganda who are soon to be competing for places, bear this message in mind... Ms Garland 5th January 2015: Happy New Year to all students, staff, parents and governors! Just before we consign Term 2 to 2014, with a 'been there, done that' attitude, I have to say how enjoyable the Christmas Concerts were. Thank you for supporting the students through your attendance, their fund-raising for this year's 'Barcelona Band Tour' continues in earnest! Ms Devonald did a fantastic job, ably supported by Mr Balcombe and our peripatetic teachers. Students performed brilliantly, with some amazing solo and small group performances; having the confidence to perform is an impressive attribute. All of that said, I have a sneaking suspicion that the shows were stolen by Mr 'Bing' Williams with his White Christmas show-stopper! I also have to mention Jon May (Brimsham Student, 2001 - 2008) who kindly returned to us on 15th Dec to present KS4 and KS5 subject awards, along with a host of other shields and trophies. Jon's talk, which we will make available as soon as possible, really highlighted how career paths and intentions can change, and that having an 'open' mind about the future is a real strength. Jon is now lecturing, alongside his journalism commitments, and clearly enjoying every minute of both careers! One final reflection on 2014, and that is our Global Partnership Link with Hosanna School in Uganda. Here is an excerpt: "We are grateful for the amazing team from Brimsham Green school! Ms Hewitt received a progress report from our colleagues and friends in Uganda, setting out how the G. Out of the 120 students from all over the UK who have worked with us in 2014, the 9 team members from Brimsham were the best! The project this year with the Brimsham team involved taking 60 primary children from Hosanna School to experience wild life in one of the major Ugandan parks. Can you imagine that people from afar come and enjoy wild life and yet many of the Ugandan children have never had such an experience! " And on that really uplifting note, I am looking forward to what we as a school community will achieve in 2015! ), and secondly, most importantly in fact, the aspirations of our students. As such, the highlights of my week have been 1) discussing Year 10 target grades with students in 1:1 meetings, and being so impressed with their determination to succeed. It’s hard to capture all of this work to share with you, but here’s a real treasure from Friday: Jake, Year 12 photography student, and his favourite images he has taken so far. Last week’s Cotswold Edge Open Evening was hugely successful, and it’s really exciting to be recruiting our first set of students! In total, 380 students attended the evening, exploring their Level 2 and Level 3 curriculum choices. Year 11 students returned to us last week after their Work Experience placements. I’m proud that we are offering a really extensive suite of qualifications, from academic A Levels to vocational BTEC courses, with an exciting ‘transition’ programme which incorporates work experience. Given that we have just been awarded the Employability Chartermark, it is not surprising that students benefitted from really well-structured placements in a wide range of exciting and challenging workplaces. A huge thank you to all of the employers who supported our students. It’s been a real pleasure to talk with students and hear what they have learned, about their chosen careers and professions, and also about . A number of students have impressed their employers so much that they have been offered part-time jobs and highly sought-after apprenticeships. The impact of our growing student leadership is becoming more and more tangible. Not only are our newly elected Student Council representatives now in post, but there are a number of individual groups of students who are forging ahead and making positive change. In Year 10 we have Tyler and Charlie who have taken it upon themselves to start fundraising for new PE kit and have been persuading local businesses to get on board. In Year 9 we have Lauren and Taya (9H) who are spear-heading their tutor group’s amazing campaign to raise money to educate Ugandan students at Hosanna School. I have genuinely never seen entrepreneurial skills like it! They have inspired tutor group 8R to join in and there has been a frenzy of cake-baking! Ms Garland school on Thursday evening’s ‘Open Evening’ was a real pleasure. If you are interested in supporting us to support Hosanna School, then keep a look out for Mr Pickles’ ‘Pigs Project’…details to follow soon, but my (novice) contribution is below. Thank you to everyone who made the evening such a success, from staff, to students, to parents. I was , of course, proven right about the two ‘Head Teacher Talks’: our Head Girls and Year 7 speakers stole the show! They spoke so articulately, and with real confidence. If you missed our talks, you can read the speeches the students wrote, plus see the presentations and some photos of the evenings on our news section. 1st October 2014: It’s been lovely showing prospective parents and students around the school in the last few weeks – our students are a credit to us, and I feel really proud going into classrooms and seeing them working really well independently, something which has been a real focus for us. Staff and students are excited about Open Evening, too – Thursday is going to be a really busy evening, I know, but it will be a joy to see our student guides and sixth form ambassadors in action – they are great leaders! I’ve most impressed by those students who have asked, in their droves, if they can help at Open Evening – their pride in their school is really important to all staff here. To be able to talk about such a significant increase in results, particularly English and Mathematics, will be a real joy for me on Open Evening, but the best talks will be given by our students, I’m sure! Come along, tell them how impressed you are by them! We just couldn’t separate the performances of Leanne Hagger and Emily Sinha-Royle, who both applied to be Brimsham’s next Head Girl from 1 September. So, Mrs Lamb and I decided to break with tradition and appoint them both! They will be ably assisted by Alex Summers, Head Boy, and Kyle Bolen, Deputy Head Boy. Mrs Lamb, Head of Sixth Form, and myself are looking forward to working with them all. Good luck Alex, Kyle, Leanne and Emily – not long now until you take up post! In total 98% of students who applied to university have got a place and are set to follow a degree level course - a HUGE well done! 90% of students have secured their first or second choice university, and we have had students 'trading up' their university destination because they got even better grades than anticipated! Have a look at the huge range of courses being studied, and students' destinations. It's such an exciting and busy time, I imagine parents are packing up food parcels as we speak!!! I am really looking forward to hearing students' university experiences in December when they return for Celebration Evening. 16th July 2014: Well done to the two Year 10 students who solved the challenge I set in my last blog! There is still one more positive referral on offer, the third student who correctly calculates the number of blogs that appear on the internet every day… Students’ achievements are coming thick and fast – my challenge today was to get around every tutor base and hand out the Headteacher Commendations I needed to award. These were earned for all sorts of great work and behaviour, including: This came on the back of all of the ‘colours’ and trophies awarded in Sports’ Assemblies yesterday – what a lot of silverware! Well done to the PE department for such great teaching and coaching! And on that note, a huge ‘congratulations’ to Tyler in Year 9: now placed 5th in England for throwing the hammer 42.12 meters. Uganda update: students and staff arrived safely and have been ‘overwhelmed’ by their reception; Hosanna School is loving having them there, teaching the primary children and preparing for a mammoth sports day event…we will share the photos with you in September. The students have been able to take lots of teaching resources with them, which they will leave in Hosanna, because of students’ generosity in fund-raising. It was lovely to be able to recognise some of these students at our KS3 Awards Evening last week. 30th June 2014: Welcome to Brimsham’s first ever Headteacher’s blog! The launch of our new website enables me now to regularly share with you our news and highlights from school, giving you an insight into what our students and staff are achieving, and what our latest developments and evolutions are here at Brimsham. Last week saw us welcome not just our new intake of Year 7 students, but also our new intake of Year 12 students. Both cohorts had the opportunity to experience taster lessons, meaning that students arrive in September well-informed about their curriculum and the support they will receive from their Tutor. It was good to see so many parents, too, at the information evenings. Whether aged 11 or 16, students still massively benefit from the support, challenge and interest that parents can provide. I know that Tutors appreciate the opportunity to meet parents so that communication feels more personal. Along with our new website, we have reviewed our school Vision and Aims. Our Vision statement should guide everything we seek to achieve at Brimsham and I am delighted that our Vision for staff and students is now encapsulated as follows: Brimsham Green School nurtures the limitless potential of all learners, inspiring students and staff to excel. I believe passionately that any one of us can achieve more than we think possible, through a combination of the right support, the drive and ambition, by working hard and being resilient when success doesn’t come immediately; as is often quoted: “The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” I will make sure that on a daily basis we work tenaciously to achieve this vision by focusing on 7 key aims. And finally, but very importantly, by working with YOU… I’m going to draw my first blog to a close, by leaving you with this fact: Did you know? Apparently there are already over 152 million blogs on the internet, with more added every single day. In fact, a new blog is apparently created somewhere in the world every half a second. I wonder, is there a student out there who can use this data to calculate the number of blogs added to the internet every day? The first three students to come and tell me will earn themselves a positive referral (which needs to be shared with any mums or dads who rise to the challenge! Headteacher's Blog. Monday 23rd April. Monday 26th March. Well done to Ladenbrook for being placed 1 st in the egg decorating competition, followed by Acton in 2 nd.
