If there is one sure way to get the best advice it’s from people who have experienced it.
That’s exactly what Ifield Community College has gone about doing by inviting back ex-students to offer advice, encouragement and help the student identify what their personal skills and strengths are.
During a recent PHSE Day, the ex-ICC students from the schools alumni network and who now work in both local and national companies, came in to work with the current Year 11 students.
They helped with CV and interview skills and through a series of short activities explained how these skills and strengths helped them in both current and previous roles and how these experiences could be used in the application process for jobs.
Alumni will also be attending and helping out with the VI form open evening on Thursday 22nd November 2018, 6-8pm.
Former students can transform a young person’s confidence, motivation and skills – if you attended Ifield Community College, inspire a future generation and sign up to their former student network
Celebrations for Crawley school now ranked in top ten
Smiles all round for the Crawley school for making it into the top 10 out of 283 schools.
Pupils, Parents & Carers, Governors and Staff were all celebrating at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Primary School this week, after it emerged the school, located in Langley Green, has been ranked 7th (out of 283 schools) in this year’s Key Stage 2 West Sussex School League Tables.
Chair of Governors, Maja Jasko, said:
“this is an amazing achievement and the result of the hard work, commitment and determination of the children, OLQOH staff, Parents & Carers and Governors, over many years. The OLQOH Governors would also like to congratulate our Key Stage 1 Pupils and Teaching Team, who also achieved fantastic outcomes in 2017/18, with 93% of children passing the ‘Phonics Check’, and combined outcomes in Year 2 exceeding the WSCC County Average.”
Deputy Head Teacher, Jan Miles, went on to comment:
“OLQOH recognises that academic outcomes represent just a fraction of the vital work that all primary schools are doing, preparing our children and young people for both secondary school and adult life. Nonetheless, these result build on the excellent SATs scores achieved at Our Lady’s over the past 5 years and reflect our school mantra ‘Better Never Stops!’.”
