Fullbrook & Fullbrook 6

Fullbrook & Fullbrook 6


This week we would like to highlight another great read from this month's reading list on Thought provoking books.

Ground Zero by Alan Gratz tells the story of two characters, Brandon who was visiting his Dad's workplace in the World Trade Centre on September 11th 2001 and Reshmina who lives in Afghanistan.

Gratz alternates between the two narratives in short, nail-biting chapters that create vivid images of each setting and makes the reader feel connected in both character’s relationships and choices. The uplifting message of the importance of humanity working with, not against, one another comes through brilliantly.

Available to borrow from the LRC.

It's time for our next Modern Foreign Language (MFL) Word of the Cycle, which will be incorporated into MFL lessons in a similar way to our normal Word of the Cycle.

It’s time our next Word of the Cycle, which we’ll be incorporating into lessons and tutor times with students. We would be grateful if you could continue to support this by using the word

Remember this little fella? We received an update from Surrey Wildlife Aid at the end of last week and he's still with them while they treat him for an internal infection. They have said that they are hopeful that he will make a full recovery and be released once things have cleared up.

The Year 7 and 8 Book club had their second session last week, and they are reading the Costa Book Award Winner The Crossing by Manjeet Mann as part of the National Teen Book Club.

Written in short prose, it is a powerful narrative that bounces between two main voices, Natalie and Sammy. We have found that the story really brings home the realities of the refugee crisis in a moving and thought provoking way and it has already sparked some interesting conversations among the group.

We have copies of The Crossing available to loan from the LRC and it is on this month's reading list of Thought Provoking Books.

Ofsted have now published their report, which rated Fullbrook & Fullbrook 6 as a ‘good’ school following the inspection in March.

We were delighted with the feedback from the inspectors who really got to see the sense of community which we instil and would like to thank everyone from the Fullbrook family again for the continued help and support that they give to make our school a wonderful place to be part of.

We will be hosting a Fullbrook 6 Open Evening on Thursday 16 June from 6pm.
Prospective students from Year 10 who will need to start making college applications when they enter Year 11 in September, are encouraged to attend so they can find out more about the courses on offer, speak to staff and also find out more about the extension to the F6 facilities which are due for completion at the end of October.

There will be two entry times available, and spaces will be limited for each, with bookings restricted to 1 student and 1 adult to help us maximise availability to students across the evening.

Visit our Eventbrite page to book either a 6pm or 7pm slot.


Today saw our Year 11 students celebrating the end of their formal Key Stage 4 education here at Fullbrook. Mr Smith and the Year 11 team hosted their traditional celebration assembly, sharing highlights for the year group, along with handing out awards and recognition to students and farewell messages from the tutor team. After that it was onto the tennis courts for the second part of the festivities with a barbecue and refreshments while the year books and leavers hoodies were handed out.

Monday will mark the start of the formal written GCSE examinations, along with the A Levels for our Year 13 students, and we couldn’t let this moment go by without saying how incredibly proud we are of all of them for the determination over the last few challenging years. We know that they will continue to be better than they ever thought they could be, whatever the next step in their journey might be.

Our telephone system will be down from 3:45pm today for approximately 15-30 minutes so that the Network Team can conduct some routine maintenance. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

The scaffolding is up ready for the team from MCS Construction to start putting the roof on our extension!

Loneliness is something that can affect anyone, at any time. To help combat the feelings of isolation, Mental Health Foundation have collated some ideas on how to cope with loneliness and support others.

It's time for our next Modern Foreign Language (MFL) Word of the Cycle, which will be incorporated into MFL lessons in a similar way to our normal Word of the Cycle.

On the radio this morning they shared that it was National Librarians Day. After doing a bit of research, it turns out this is in America and that the UK celebration of librarians happened during the Easter break. We still think it's a good enough reason to give a huge shout out to our fabulous LRC team who put so much work into engaging students and staff with a love of reading and research.


Did you know that Fullbrook operates a Uniform Swap Shop? We have a supply of second hand uniform that is available to parents & carers who are struggling with the costs of buying items, or replacing things their child has outgrown.

This week our Book Club got creative and had a go at origami. In the book The Light in Everything by Katya B***n, Tom makes paper cranes to distract himself from his anxiety. It was trickier than we thought it was going to be, luckily Eleanor was a bit of an expert and gave us all a tutorial!

The Librarians are enjoying their latest books. When Shadows Fall is on the Carnegie Medal for Writing Shortlist this year, and Ketchup Clouds won the Waterstones Children's Book Prize back in 2013. We would recommend both as very thought-provoking reads and are part of the Reading for Empathy collection for this month.

This morning the Year 11s took part in their celebration assembly to mark the end of their formal studies before they commence GCSE examinations. There were lots of awards handed out, a special Miss Wallis fish bowl winner, musical performances from Charlie P & Sophia B, a trip down memory lane and a song from the Year 11 Pastoral Team and the tutors. Once that had concluded it was time for yearbooks, hoodies, shirt signing and a slightly modified BBQ hosted in the canteen due to the rain. Well done Year 11!
