Today saw the launch of our House System in school. Students and staff have been allocated a “House”, ours are named after local castle’s: Durham, Auckland, Lumley and Barnard.
The House System aims to facilitate more mixing between the different year groups, increase community spirit, peer mentoring, boost the existing rewards system, encourage more students to get involved in competitions, and develop leadership opportunities for students in KS3 and KS4.
We are able to offer tickets to the Sunderland vs Southampton match on 11th February please download your letter here or call at reception for a hard copy.
Please click here for some Maths revision information, also available under the Parents tab, Raising Achievement.
We have become aware of the World of Atoms app which could potentially help with Science revision. It is a competition winning app, created by a brother and sister team from The Boswells school in Essex, which introduces KS3 to the periodic table. It’s a professionally made game that’s free to download on the App Store and Google Play, with no adverts or in-app purchases.
‘My World of Atoms’ is a colourful 3D game where players explore a maze, collect elements to make simple compounds and discover fascinating facts along the way. Information on elements can be accessed any time without playing the game.
You can find more information on our website www.myworldofatoms.com or download it from the app stores.
Head of Science
Belmont School is working with the Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) Commission and would like parental input to improve our delivery of SRE to students.
As you may have seen in the school newsletter, we are committed to educating all students to form healthy relationships. We are looking for parents to join a steering group and provide us with some baseline data.
