Kia Ora to you all,
It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome you all – students, parents and interested parties – back to English at the London Nautical School.
If it weren’t exciting enough that we’re back to school after a long wonderful holiday, there’s even more to be pleased about. The school has been spruced up throughout the holidays – and some rooms are almost unrecognisable. We sincerely hope you’ve had a brilliant Summer break and that you’re returning to school with vigour and enthusiasm for the year ahead. We will unquestionably be hitting the ground running with the programmes well in place for all classes.
In other news:
- Edutronic has grown: If you’re reading this, then you’ve made it to the new site, a much larger domain with sites for other classes and an increasingly sophisticated set of resources and materials. Via Edutronic you can also access the English Department site where you can accesss moderated exemplars of student work, year plans, policies and information about the research and new learning initiatives the London Nautical School Department of English are engaged in.
- GCSE Results for last year’s Year 11 cohort exceeded our expectations and in the English Language paper, our over-all result for students who gained at least a C grade, shot up by 14% to 73% over-all. We’ve got our work cut out for us to embed and improve on that this year, but I couldn’t be more optimistic that we’ve got what it takes to maintain this meteoric improvement.
So, get those shirts ironed and shoes shined as this is going to be a stunning year for English at the London Nautical School.
