The keys to success…

Last week, as you all know, was disrupted by poor weather. I know you were set work to complete on Insight, but this is not the same as being taught in school. It is very important that we all work to catch up.

Whether you are studying for a further qualification or made that New Year's resolution to get up to speed on recent pedagogical thinking, the MRC CPD library for staff will have something relevant for you.





Thank you all for a busy and positive first week back.

Our theme for assemblies this week is happiness, which Mrs Dickens will lead. I would ask all of you to reflect on what you do and also can do to make others happy. I see students every day with friends every day and it is great to see you supporting and helping one another. I spoke to a very polite student this week in one of my lessons this week and thanked him for being so polite and having good manners. He replied that ‘manners cost nothing’ – very true and something we all can work to improve. Holding doors open, smiling at people, tidying away litter and being polite – very important to make MRC a better place, but also important for life.


The MRC Teaching & Learning Blog

Welcome all to the new College Teaching & Learning blog.

We are hoping, through a regular series of blogs on a range of topics, to share and promote interesting and effective strategies to continue to embed great practice across the college.

Welcome Back! I hope you all had a good half-term

I hope everyone had a good half-term. This next half-term is also very short, as Easter is early this year. That means that we have a lot to cram in over the next five and a half weeks. Most important, of course, is that you continue to do your best in every lesson, every day, as well as at break and lunch. We do what it takes for as long as it takes is a good value to live by and as we start back after the holiday, you have the opportunity to make sure that you do this. A reminder to you all: Work hard to be a better person today than you were yesterday – we must all do this. It isn’t an option if you want to achieve your goals now and in the future. 

My message this week will focus mainly on safety

News Editor 0 2748

Safer internet day is Tuesday 6th February. Our assemblies this week will be led by Mr Thompson and will focus on this important topic, as will PSCHE lessons and tutor time.  The internet is a fantastic tool and without question it has improved and changed the way we live. Communication, learning and sharing information have seen incredible advances in recent years. We are all also aware of the way the internet has changed the way shop and conduct business.

Our values: Respect, Happiness and Achievement

News Editor 0 2630

These values are really important to us, both inside and outside of College. They were chosen by you – our students – in December 2016. It is great to see the vast majority of you working hard to embed these values in the way you work, help and support each other. Through doing this, we will make MRC a better school for all of us.



Holocaust Memorial Day is this week.

News Editor 0 3201

This is an incredibly important day, which we will mark this week with activities in tutor time. It is important that we remember the Holocaust and also consider other atrocities that have taken place since then. We must also acknowledge that similar atrocities re happening in parts of the world now. The focus of our assemblies this week will be Respect.

Welcome back to a new term - a very Happy New Year to everyone!

2017 was positive at MRC for lots of reasons. Several of our students are now at great Universities, we achieved our best GCSE results in years and our best A-Level results ever. Just as important as this is the work you did and continue to do for our College community: we raised several thousands of pounds for charities and every day, I see students supporting and helping one another. It is essential we all commit to continue to do this as it makes our College and environment much better.
