Year 7-9 science club got off to a great start, with two weeks of Forensics club. The pupils collected and analysed samples from crime scenes to successfully identify the culprit! The next club will be “Sport Scientists” held on November 9th, 16th and 23rd October. We hope to see you there!
It was a delight to welcome parents, carers and guests to join us for Presentation Evening to celebrate the achievements of Chace students. Congratulations to all of our talented prizewinners.
Our Year 10 Boys’ Football team played their first game of the season against Broomfield School – winning 4-3.
Every player played well but man of the match has to be our goalkeeper, who saved a penalty and kept Chace in the game with some amazing saves!
We are delighted that so many of our students are embracing our new points rewards system. Since the beginning of term over 1000 positive points have been awarded to students and many are well on the way to receiving their Bronze Award.
Well done to year 9 as the year group with the highest points total across the school and 7SCH, 8ADM, 9TGo, 10KBW and 11SPA with the highest points totals in their year group.
Year 7 had a wet but thoroughly enjoyable trip to Tolmers this weekend. Thank you to all of the staff who gave up their time to make the trip such a success. Our PTA raised funds throughout the year to pay for the trip. If any parents/carers would like to make a donation to the PTA for next year’s trip please login at www.parentpay.com
Our Year 8 and Year 10 Netballers both won their first matches of the season against Heron Hall with two fantastic wins, 8-0 and 16-1. Congratulations to both and here’s to a great start and hopefully the beginning of a winning streak!
Well done to all the Year 7 students who have begun with the end in mind this week on their exciting learning journey at Chace. They have worked hard all week and deserve a good rest this weekend. They will need all of their energy for next week and their trip to Tolmers.
Students from Chace Community School took part in a National Photography competition and we are delighted that one of our Year 11 students, Lauren has been selected as a finalist out of 400 entries across 25 schools. Many congratulations, Lauren. Here is the winning photo.
Welcome back to successful learning at Chace and a special welcome to our new Year 7 and 12 students. I am delighted to be writing to you for the first time as Headteacher of Chace.
This week in assembly I challenged the students to begin with the end in mind, encouraging them to visualise the successes that they will celebrate when they leave Chace. I reminded them of my vision for each and every one of them:
- To be successful – well equipped for further study, university, apprenticeships and ultimately the world of work
- To be happy and fulfilled – forming positive relationships, enjoying new experiences, resilient and enjoying life
- To be fit and healthy
I look forward to leading the whole school community to improve on present best through high expectations of work, behaviour, organisation and first class teaching.
