KS4 Course Guidance 2012 for Parents and Carers is now available in the Curriculum section of the website. This includes the presentation and guides from the KS4 Courses Evening for current Year 9 Parents and Carers.
On Friday 27th January, 10 fortunate Year 10 students were given the opportunity to visit the University of Cambridge.
The aim of the trip was to give the students an understanding of university and student life. At Emmanuel College students took part in many talks and activities to give them a wide understanding of what university life would be like for them. This included lectures on Medical Ethics and Astronomy and there was also an individual and school challenge which had lots of general knowledge questions as well as questions about student life.
Notley came 3rd out of the 8 schools in this challenge and the students were very proud of their result! It was a very good day – thank you to Mrs Robb for organising the visit, and to Mr Newman and Mrs Wallace for accompanying us on the trip which was thoroughly enjoyable for all.

If you are family, friends or neighbours of Year 9 history students at Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form they may soon be seeking your help. The year group have been asked to research stories about the experiences of their family, or local people they know, during World War Two. These personal or local experiences will then be used in the classroom as an interesting way to begin to study the national or international events which they reflect. Memories of rationing for example could lead into an investigation of the Battle of the Atlantic. Stories of families from other countries would help focus on the wider nature of the conflict and perhaps give some very interesting perspectives to work from. Clearly the stories do not have to be dramatic, though it would obviously be interesting to hear those. Copies of photographs would also be of interest or copies of other relevant documents.
Stories can be of any length and in any format and would also be welcomed from members of the wider community who have something to tell. First-hand accounts would be of particular interest, but they could also be information passed down the generations. Contributions can be sent to Mrs Hill, History Subject Leader, at the school’s Notley Road address or emailed to email@example.com
Staff and Governors are also going to be canvassed for help and it is hoped that a valuable learning resource can be developed. In addition it may be that some personal history is preserved and passed on which might otherwise be lost or known only to a few.
