Yr 6 Open Evening

Chris Gunter Fitness Suite

September 18, 2014 in Front Page News, Latest News by Mr D Beesley

GymSTUDENTS at a Newport school were left feeling inspired after ex-pupil and Welsh footballer Chris Gunter unveiled their new gym.

St Julian’s School hosted the grand opening of the gym yesterday alongside the Wales and Reading FC footballer who the gym is named after.

Previously used as a drama room and Chris’ old registration room, the gym is equipped with treadmills, exercise bikes, cross trainers and weights.

Plans for the development of the gym were put into action after Sports Wales conducted a school sport survey and staff realised pupils wanted more fitness within their education.

Fifteen-year-old pupil Georgie Webb said, “The gym is really cool. I really think it will help inspire pupils who enjoy sport.”

Promising footballer, 14-year-old George Ratcliffe said he hopes to follow in Chris’ footsteps.

He said: “It’s so good to see someone like Chris who has gone through the same steps I’m going through so it really encourages me. I am really surprised by the gym and I didn’t expect it to be this good. I can’t wait to use it.”

In a question and answer session with the pupils, the sporting star encouraged pupils to aim high to achieve their goals.

He said: “Being here brings back memories of being in this room running out into the yard to play football. All I ever really had in mind was to play football.”

He reminded pupils to stay grounded and work hard in and outside the classroom adding: “To be back here and see my name above the door is something I never thought would happen.”

Newly appointed acting head teacher Rhys Evans was also at the opening and said he was delighted for the school and wanted to make sure that all pupils feel inspired.

He said: “It’s amazing for Chris to give back to us, it’s all about pupils believing in themselves and feeling good about the school.”

HOMELESS HUMAN

September 9, 2014 in Front Page News, Latest News by Mr D Beesley

After a lot of press and media coverage about attacks on homeless people a group of Year 11 Students from St Julian’s School wanted to highlight the plight of being homeless.

Firstly, the students met with a young person who was homeless.  After discussing what the young person had gone through, the girls were really empathic and shocked at what they had discovered.  This motivated the students to show the story of what this homeless young person had experienced and life on the streets. They were determined to try and change the perception of homeless people and make people of their age realise they are humans and deserve respect.

The voice over is the actual recorded testimony from a homeless young person, explaining how they got into their situation and how they had been treated by the general public.

The students were involved in every part of the process, from makeup, voice overs, script and filming.  They were fantastic ambassadors for the school and community!

Project was part of a partnership with Newport Youth Service Community Worker and Fixers Project

NATO SUMMIT

August 29, 2014 in Front Page News, Latest News by Mr R Owen

NATO Summit

Dear Parent/Carer

As the forthcoming NATO summit is almost upon us, specific security arrangements and linked contingency plans are almost completed and in place. As Mrs Richards explained in her summer letter in July, after a long six week holiday, we are very keen for all our students to return to school with minimum disruption. As such, we took the decision to remain fully open on the 4th and 5th September.

However, in light of the most recent guidance from the Civic Centre and after consultation with the police, we are going to slightly alter our plans. Our aim is to remain open on both days but we will close at 2pm on Thursday 4th September.  The decision has been made to ensure students and staff avoid the considerable traffic disruption caused by the scheduled demonstrations and movement of Heads of State between cities.

May I apologise for any inconvenience this decision may cause. I am sure you will appreciate how difficult planning for such an unprecedented event is. The decision has been taken due to health and safety considerations of both students and staff.

Thank you in anticipation for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Rhys Evans

Acting Headteacher

A LEVEL RESULTS

August 20, 2014 in Front Page News by Mr D Beesley

Post 16_GRID_NEW

St Julian’s School is very pleased with its A Level results for 2014.

There were some very strong performances across the school with 100% A*-E (or equivalent) in BTEC subjects (which all performed well)  and the majority of A2 courses. Design & Technology, English Literature, RS, French, History and Chemistry equally performed very well with high percentages of A*-A and A*-C grades. Mathematics performed exceptionally well with 2 A* grades and 7 A grades. We also saw a significant improvement in our Physics results which is very pleasing.

We had a number of top performers this year with 8 students achieving the equivalent of 3 or more A*-A grades. These were Lucy Davies, Rhys Durham, Dylan John, Jarrod Lewis, Chloe Szeto, Yexin Xie and Kelly Young.

Our Post 16 has an open entrance policy where all of our students are encouraged to return to study at St Julian’s.  The performance of all our students relative to their ability is something which we are very proud of, as well as the strong destinations of our most able students. Early indications suggest the number of students gaining entrance to university is very positive.

The school would like to congratulate all of our students and wishes them well in their future paths.
