The Department for Education has just released its revamped data comparison website, allowing parents to easily compare the performance of schools, using more sophisticated measures than just a ‘raw’ GCSE score. The West Bridgford School, Nottinghamshire’s best performing non-selective, state funded school, was delighted to see both the types of school it is ‘compared with’ nationally by the Department for Education and confirmation of its local standing. To see our school listed in the middle of the best schools in the country is a testament to the work of the staff and pupils. The table also shows no other School of this type, within 75 miles, performs better than The West Bridgford School.

Good Luck to all the Year 11’s and we look forward to seeing them at the revision sessions next week.

The Wilford Voice

The Wilford Voice - Lizzy Smith
The Wilford Voice is something that the Wilford Primary School has held for a couple of years and is a great opportunity for children ages 4-11 to take part in a singing competition through the school. I felt very privileged when a friend of mine, who goes to my church (Jill Edmonds), asked me to go to The Wilford Voice 2016 and be a judge and sing for the whole school. Jill Edmonds has worked at the school for 20 years; she is a music teacher at Wilford School and has helped me a lot personally, especially with confidence.
The Wilford Voice 2016 was wonderful! All of the singers were amazing; they had confidence and performed exceptionally well. There were groups of singers and soloists, I thought each contestant put in so much effort and they all practised so hard. The solo singer who won was Lois Rodel and she sang My Heart Will Go Own – By Celine Dionne which is an incredibly hard song to sing and she sang it beautifully! The winner was the group that sang Uptown Funk – By Bruno Mars, they had an excellent stage presence that made the whole audience want to join in! 87 children entered the competition initially so it was very competitive.
I was asked to perform in front of the whole school and I chose to sing Songbird – By Christine McVie from Fleetwood Mac. I loved performing for the school! I have singing lessons so I felt like it was a great experience for me as I was privileged enough to perform which is something I am very passionate about and I felt very honoured to be treated so well by the school and to be a part of The Wilford Voice. I learn so much every time I sing on a stage, so I hope the children learnt something as well and could take inspiration from someone who is older than them but still young. Here are some pictures:

Our KS3 parents regularly ask us 'what good books can I buy my child? Can you recommend any?' In response to this the English Department have collated their own experiences, as well as consulting with Year 7 and 8 students, to produce a selection of suggested 'Good Reads', that might be bought, the next time Book Vouchers arrive for a birthday.
