The last few days have thrown the educational world into turmoil with uncertainties surrounding the calculation of examination grades. Despite this we are delighted to be able to celebrate the success of both A level and GCSE students at Great Baddow High School as they finally receive the qualifications they deserve, based on centre assessed grades. The revised grades for Year 13 students mean that 100% of our students have achieved a university of their choice. GCSE outcomes provided excellent results for our Year 11 students. Many of our students were awarded the highest GCSE grades and we will welcome a record number of students into our Sixth Form in September. A special mention must be given to the following students for their achievements; - Lucy K – Eight grade 9s, one grade 8, and a Distinction. James A  – Seven grade 9s, two grade 8s and a Distinction. Jenny R - Seven grade 9s, two grade 8s and a Distinction. James L - Five grade 9s, four grade 8s, one grade 7 and a Distinction*. Amy R represented Great Britain in the mixed country three-on-three ice hockey competition at the Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympic Games in January and achieved - four grade 9s, three grade 8s, two grade 7s and a Distinction.   We would like to congratulate all of our students on their amazing success during a period of great disruption. They have demonstrated maturity and resilience through these difficult times, and we wish them every success for the future.

Students play detective as part of National Careers Week

National Careers Week is a celebration of careers guidance in education across the United Kingdom to provide careers guidance at an important stage in the academic calendar. Offering a range of careers activities across the school and curriculum areas, this year Great Baddow High School introduced their first ever “What’s my job?”, careers event as part of their National Careers Week schedule, which aimed to widen the knowledge of Year 7 students about the variety of job roles available and challenge preconceptions as to what their future might hold. Dressed in plain everyday clothes, mystery visitors were quizzed by students to try and identify what they did for a living. Allowing ten minutes to talk to each visitor, the students asked some very insightful questions as they tried to work out all the jobs, whilst others thought they knew as soon as they saw them. After an hour of questions the students made their final guesses. Some were close and others were spot on, but Dr Entwistle, with her PHD and surprising answers, had everyone scratching their heads, including the teachers!! “When the mystery visitors all went away and dressed for their jobs and walked into the hall of Year 7s there was quite a few gasps and groans from the students. The mystery guests were revealed as; a circus performer, mental health nurse, bank manager, site agent and a firefighter. After the big reveal, the students then heard how each adult got into their roles and learnt more about their job. The day certainly opened the students’ eyes to a wide range of job roles and challenged quite a few preconceptions and stereotypes.” Mr James Faulkner, Careers Leader “It was amazing. I learnt lots and I felt like a detective.” Elena, Year 7 student at Great Baddow High School Aimed at widening students understanding of different jobs roles and challenging stereotypes, the “What’s my job” event lets Year 7 students meet employees from a range of career sectors to find out what their roles involves and the education and training that was required to get there. “I was a good opportunity to challenge the stereotype of my job, especially being a female in the construction industry.”  Madeleine Bishop, Site Agent - Eurovia Infrastructure Ltd Photo:– Dr Entwistle (Circus Performer), Mr Kane (Essex Partnership University Trust Senior Community Mental Health Nurse), Mrs White (Santander Bank Manager), Miss Bishop (Site Agent) and a Local Firefighter, joined by Year 7 students Alasdair, Sophie and Lucy.
