Pankhurst House - 2018/19 Term 5 news

The term has been a short and sharp one with the focus very much on preparing our older students for their exams.

In our celebration of achievement assembly this week we recognised some significant successes, not least the success of Natasha Borland, Seren Kay and Judit Molner who were part of a St Katherine's team that won the gold medal in a national science competition. This puts these students in the top 5% nationally and I'm sure Emmeline Pankhurst would be proud to see three young women being so successful in scientific endeavours.

We also celebrated Tyrese Bracey breaking the school 100m record. This bodes well for the end of year sports day where Pankhurst House needs all the points we can get if we are even going to challenge for the House Cup!

Finally Yassar Issa, Kaiya Greenwood, Toby Rice and Charlie Jones all deserve recognition for gaining over 700 praise points. Kaiya with 784 points is setting the standard for the House and indeed the school and it's pleasing to have such positive role models in our House.

We look forward to term 6 where our new lead students: Bethia Brown and Barbara Raniecki are keen to put their stamp on the Pankhurst student council. Term 6 is Pankhurst's charity week and I look forward to seeing which charities our students will seek to support and how they will go about raising money for them.

Have a great half term and enjoy the sunshine!

Mr Murdoch
Head of Pankhurst House
