    Published 16/12/18

    We took over 450 children and 60 staff and parents to the pantomime last week. The children had a fantastic time and were so excited to tell their parents all about it when they returned to school. As you can see in the pictures, some staff got closer to the action than they wanted :-)

  • Sythwood Young Carers

    Published 25/10/18

    Woking Football Club were delighted to host many young carers and their families to the recent game against Chelmsford City. Young carers carry significant responsibility in the home, usually helping family members who have significant health problems.

    12 young people, aged 10 or 11, were selected from among an estimated 1200 young carers in Woking to be match day mascots. On the day they saw behind the scenes, had a meal, received a first team shirt and met Dowse and the first team players.

    Trudy Waite, Surrey Carers senior support officer, said: "Young carers are a little army that do a lot more for their families than one would normally expect at their age. All the players were very friendly and welcoming to the children which was wonderful when you think they were getting ready for the match. They were brilliant."

    Many thanks to Guildford Diocese and Rev Clive Richardson who sponsored the initiative. It was a huge success and it is hoped that it will become an annual event.

  • In Memory of Mrs Drake

    Published 28/09/18

    It's with heavy hearts that we share the news that our very dear friend and ex-colleague Janet Drake passed away recently. Mrs Drake worked at Sythwood for over 20 years and helped hundreds of children to achieve their very best. Janet was always the first one to volunteer to run the cake sales or paint the backdrops for the productions. We are sure many of our Sythwood community will remember her fondly.

    We send our love and best wishes to all of Janet's friends and family. She will be sorely missed and deserved so many more years of happiness for the lifetime of support she gave others.

    Bourne Education Trust – Surrey’s top performing trust

    New figures released this week by the Department for Education indicate that the Bourne Education Trust is Surrey’s top performing multi-academy trust for pupil progress across both the primary and secondary phases.

    The Bourne Education Trust (‘BET’) is a Surrey based multi-academy trust made up of ten schools, across both primary and secondary phases. It is ranked 3rd in the country for progress in reading, writing and mathematics at key stage 2 and 22nd for progress at GCSE in the 2017 performance tables. The BET has shown itself to be a key player in the pursuit of pupil progress and this supports it unblemished track record of school improvement across all the schools in the Trust

    BET Chief Executive, Alex Russell, said: “I am so proud of the staff and pupils in our schools; they have achieved magnificently well and it confirms that our ethos ‘transforming schools … changing lives’ really is at the heart of what we do. This could not be achieved without highly skilled and dedicated staff, governors and trustees and a pupil body that is characterised by high aspirations and a love of learning. Congratulations to everyone.”
