On 22 August 2019 our Year 11 leavers came in one more time to collect their results. After a lot of anticipation there was plenty to celebrate.
An impressive 80% of students achieved at least a grade four in English, while 68% achieved at least a grade four in Maths.
Mrs Mobbs said: “We are incredibly pleased with the results achieved and the progress made by our GCSE students this year. They’ve worked incredibly hard to get the best grades they can, and we wish them all the very best for the future.
We’re particularly pleased with the very strong results achieved in academic, creative and vocational subjects, showing the strengths we have across the curriculum and underlining our determination to enable students to “discover what you’re good at”. These results demonstrate the dedication of Lynn Grove teachers to helping our students realise their potential.”
Calling all Year 11 pupils: we are pleased to let you know that we have been able to respond to your request – the Library will be open this weekend for revision as follows:
Saturday 4 May 10 am – 2 pm
Sunday 5 May 10 am – 2 pm
Monday 6 May (bank holiday) Closed
Science Teachers will be on hand to support your independent revision and give you feedback.
We hope to see many of you there.
Our Year 7 pupils recently took part in their third CET Key Concept Day. The Key Concept Days are organised by our Creative Education Trust HQ and are supported by a practicing designer. The Key Concept days are devised to enable the students to develop their understanding of the individual concepts and then use them to connect their knowledge. This time they explored the concept of ‘Meaning’ by creating drawings and shapes. The results were fantastic and the children had a great time throughout the day. To find out more about the key concepts have a look at this video.
Congratulations to Annabelle in Year 10 who has attended the Youth Sport Trust’s Active Girls Coaching Camp at Loughborough University 5th – 8th April. Annabelle was selected for this event after attending a series of local sports leadership workshops where her leadership qualities and positive outgoing personality shone through.
Our Year 7 pupils know their school pretty well by now, and this stood them in good stead today, 1 April 2019, when they all took part in an Easter egg hunt. Covering almost every corner of the school grounds they had to identify places and features which they did with great enthusiasm. All were rewarded with a chocolate egg for their efforts.
We’re very impressed with the results of our young mathematicians who took part in the Intermediate Maths Challenge recently. Our pupils achieved 15 Bronze, 7 Silver and 4 Gold certificates! The latter four, pupils from year 9, 10 and 11, automatically qualified for the European round this month – a fantastic achievement.
Well done to all the pupils who took part and to Mr Farman for inspiring them with his enthusiasm for all things Maths and homemade cake.
Following feedback from our parents we have introduced a second Parents’ Consultation Evening for Year 11 pupils to give you a clear picture on your child’s progress and what they need to do in order to fully prepare for their final GCSE examinations.
The event is on Thursday, 4 April 2019 5 – 8 pm, and pupils should attend this important event in school uniform.

It’s British Science week and our STEM Coordinator Ms Rix has again created a week of wonderful and exciting activities for our pupils to take part in. Lots of them have signed up for experiments, treasure hunts and talks by scientists and engineers. The ever popular water rockets are back, and there will be a science cake competition and judging by last year’s entries we are in for a treat.
