Message from the Headteacher

We start the New Year with great anticipation and optimism.  We feel well placed to ensure students enjoy and achieve at John Mason school. This term we welcome Mrs Gibb, Director of English and Media and Mrs Postlethwaite -Dixon, Director of Soc Education.

Many exciting events are planned for January and February.  This month there is a Year 11 visit to Oxford University for our most able students.  This is designed to inspire our students.  We are proud of the fact that 1 in 5 of our students leave us for top Russell Group Universities each year.  Year 9 has also begun the process of looking forward and aiming high.  They are currently considering their pathways and possible subject choices for Year 10.  We are looking forward to our evening about option choices on Monday 19 January.  This information evening will be followed up with our Year 9 Parents’ Consultation Evening on Wednesday 4 February with students making their final choices by Monday 23 February.

We also look forward to another term of excellence in the arts, music and sports.  My ongoing thanks to all our parents who support the numerous JMS events.  Please do check dates on our school calendar and keep an eye out for ParentMail updates. We now have established a monthly newsletter which we hope you are finding useful and informative.   This is sent home in the last week of every month.

My thanks again for the strength of support from our parents and the  commitment from our staff and students.  I firmly believe that 2015 promises to be a great year

Ms Di Mashiter
