Cedars Martin sixth form college launches

Cedars Martin Launch
On the 7th November we successfully launched our KS5 Post 16 Development, Cedars Martin. After great GCSE results, putting us in the top of Leicestershire schools for progress, but also demonstrating how far we have come as a school, we wanted to extend our provision to our learners who wish to study A – levels and by working with both Cedars Academy and Beauchamp Academy we will focus our academic excellence and holistic developments of all learners. Over 100 learners attended and signed up on the night to attend our taster sessions on the 13th and 14th November both at Martin High and also at the Cedars.

Anti-Bullying Week
The 13th to 17th November 2017 was anti-bullying week and the whole school participated. Our House Captains created and delivered engaging assemblies to each House whereby they spoke of different types of bullying and what you can do if you are being bullied. In addition, the school canteen menu had an anti-bullying theme and starter activities involving teamwork and collaboration were delivered in drama and PE.
For our whole school charter, the school council decided upon a giant paper chain charter. Every learner has written their name and a positive comment on a slip of paper and these will be connected to create a giant chain which will be displayed around school to show that as a school, we are standing up to bullying.

Year 7 Graduation Evening
As part of the transition process from primary to secondary school, Martin High Year 7 pupils have been completing the PROUD way. Using the school's five key values of punctuality, respect, organisation, uniform and determination – Year 7 pupils have had to prove that they can meet each element of these throughout their learning in order to graduate into a full member of the Martin High community and join older students in their Houses.
The pupils began by taking part in an intense week of PROUD focused lessons learning skills from how to introduce yourself to tips and time saving advice so that you are not late in the morning. After the initial week, pupils have been putting these values to the test under the watchful eye of their tutors and Head of Transition. Successful pupils will be invited to attend Graduation on Monday 11th December, where alongside their fellow graduates and in front of staff and parents they will receive their House colours.
Miss S Coates – Head of Transition

Halloween at MHS
Lisa and her catering team excelled themselves for our Halloween lunch in their lovely newly renovated kitchen area. The theme this year was Ghostbusters and as you can see 'They ain't afraid of no ghosts'. Lisa and her team have also launched their new menus this month offering even more exciting and different healthy options.

Half Marathon
At the end of September, Miss Yeabsley and Miss Hallam travelled to Disneyland Paris to take part in their very first half marathon. They were raising money for Jade's Retreat, a charity set up in memory of Mrs Ward's daughter. A number of families from MHS have used and benefitted from the charity. After comfortably beating their fundraising target of £200, they managed to raise a total of £524.76; this money will be used to make a huge difference to lots of families.
Miss Yeabsley and Miss Hallam would like to thank staff at MHS for their generous donations and pupils for the support in the build up to the race!
