It was lovely to see so many talented young performers and artists join us for our second Bursary Tea Party last week. It was a great chance for the children to meet one another and for the parents to have a chat with Mrs Webster and Miss Nicholas. Our current Yr7 bursary pupils welcomed them into the theatre to hear a short inspirational speech from Sophia, then took part in some fun drama games and then after sharing their hopes and aspirations, everyone was treated to a jelly, pizza and cake. Having already signed up for our fabulous Bursary Induction Programme, where pupils are invited to join us at workshops, theatre trips and visits to exhibitions, the pupils took away a Norwood goodie bag as a momento of their afternoon.
In a year where we have never had so many first choice requests, Norwood is undoubtedly becoming the school of choice in the area. Donna, mother of Yasmin, Yr 6 of St Jude’s Primary said that they ‘were so happy’ to have been given the Norwood School. ‘ We were so anxious in the build up to the national offer day in March, we had put Norwood down as our first choice but you never really know do you until you see it in black and white but as soon as we read the school Yasmin was jumping up and down and prancing around the kitchen!’
Another parent emailed - ‘We are so delighted that Megan has been given a place at The Norwood School, there was great relief and excitement in our house yesterday evening. Thank you for your interest in Megan, the bursary opportunity at The Norwood School has inspired her and she can't wait to start.’

It gets pretty busy in the atrium on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
The Buddy Reading Scheme is well underway and Ms Galdames could not be prouder of the Sixth Form who have offered to help but also the Yr8’s who regularly join them. Yr 11 Prefects have also started supporting the initiative and we are certainly very proud of the excellent progress the children are making.
Well done and thank you to all those involved.
The Buddy Readers are:

If you ever knew Mat Fox you would know he was more than just a guy who played music, he instilled lifelong passion and energy into everyone he encountered. When I first met him in 2010, this tall guy with the deepest voice said “you alright darlin”? and he opened his arms out wide for the “infamous hug”. His special nod of approval, that came with his smile, would let me know that I was doing the right thing. He always made us feel talented, accepted and welcomed alongside the hundreds of other young people that he inspired at Kinetica Bloco and the schools that he taught in – especially ours. The essence of his legendary soul lives on in all of us. I am most grateful that I have had the opportunity to have known him and learnt so much from him. The confidence he helped flourish within me has had a huge impact on my dance life. My dance teacher has told me that being part of Kinetica Bloco has visibly altered me for the better in so many ways - so thank you for your encouragement Fantastic Mr Fox! Rest in paradise xxx

A large number of Year 11 students remain behind after school to attend intervention. In addition to this, we have launched an after school Silent Study Zone to provide students with space to work. Students will be expected to book their "Independent Study Space" and remain there from 3.00 - 5.30pm. Refreshments will be provided and students will be able to buy revision materials from an independent Learning and Study Shop.
