Modern Foreign Languages

My daughter has really come on leaps and bounds with her French.

She has absolutely loved learning German this year and I feel has learned more than a year's worth of German in only 2 and a half terms.

You are doing an amazingly effective job.

Principal's Message

Miss Helen Wilson, Principal29 June 2018 

On Monday 25 and Tuesday 26 June, we were delighted to welcome our new Year 12 cohort to Thurston Sixth: Beyton Campus for their Induction Days.  The students experienced lessons for their chosen A Level classes, electing to attend any subjects which they are inquisitive to experience, ensuring that they can make a well informed choice in September.  Additionally, students were given the opportunity to experience; careers advice, applying to elite universities, Extended Project Qualification, Core Maths and Further Maths.  

We were overwhelmed with the numbers on both days and the positive feedback received.  One student joining us from another local school said:

I absolutely love it here; I’ve been really challenged, I’ve made new friends and I love the campus – I cannot wait to start my A-Levels here!”

Mrs Cooper, Raising Standards Lead for the new intake commented:

“The atmosphere has been amazing.  The students are really motivated and enthused about studying their A Levels with us.  It was so lovely to walk around the campus and feel the energy and hear the nervous yet excited chatter.”

It has been another successful year for Thurston Community College at the National Finals of the TeenTech Awards.  Four groups of Thurston students were selected from thousands of applications and invited to the finals at The Royal Society in London.  Thomas Brewster and Felix Charters (Year 9) reached the final three for their category ‘Energy’ with their project Eco-tent, exploring sustainable clean energy when camping off the grid.  Ronan Somerville and Nathan Somerville (Year 13) were selected for their projects ARBA and Retail Stock Storage Aid.  Nathan Somerville received a special mention for his project by the judges.

However, the highpoint of the day was the announcement that Isobel Mawdsley and Emily Dunsdon (Year 9), finished in first place, for their award category ‘Future of Food’ with their project Afrapak, a non-profit catering solution that aims to improve the nutrition of impoverished areas. The students were complimented on their maturity, fantastic attitude and understanding of the problem.   

Huge congratulations to all members of the team, but especially to Isobel and Emily, who will be collecting their awards from Buckingham Palace in the Autumn Term.
