I have really enjoyed my first week at Millbrook. The staff and students have been most welcoming. Through year group assemblies I have managed to speak to all the students. In the assemblies I set a challenge to each year group; be better than the year group that preceded you. That is, I want current Year 7 to have more ePraise points, better attendance, better attainment, fewer red cards and fewer lates than current Year 8. Year 8 have to achieve better than current Year 9, Year 9 better than last years Year 9 and so on.  I will keep the year groups updated on how they are progressing. I also spoke to the students about Lewis Hamilton. When he accepted an award he thanked the 1300 people who enable him to be world champion; the mechanics, the data analysts, the nutritionists etc. I reminded the students that they are not alone in facing their challenges; Millbrook is lucky in having such an extensive support network. I wish you all a Happy New year.
