Catching up with Mr Hart Dyke

Posted In Sixth Form

We extend a very warm welcome to all pupils new to the school and in particular, as Head of Sixth Form, I would like to mention the fantastic men and women who have recently joined Year 12. They have come across as charming, humorous, intelligent and will, I’m sure, thrive at Bethany. They seem very settled and appear to have made a good start to their A Level courses. I’m very much looking forward to getting to know them over the next two years.

As last year’s Year 12 enter their final year at Bethany, I’m delighted to share good news about some of their achievements in the busy last term, including a fantastic £1,335 raised for charity through the annual Apprentice Challenge. They cooked, cleaned, painted, washed cars and ran errands to raise as much money for the charity Mind as they could in a period of eight days. This is a phenomenal achievement and James Walker, project manager from Mind, couldn’t have been more grateful.

There are four local mind centres with a turnover of £380,000 and this money will help fund the valuable work that they do. Congratulations to all those who took part!

In the very last week of the summer term all our Lower Sixth were involved in work experience, either in this country or abroad. A more detailed report will follow, but we would just like to thank our hugely supportive parents for finding this work experience for their son or daughter. There is no doubt that a great number of them had a tremendously valuable and interesting week.

Wishing you all the best in this new school year, and look forward to sharing the achievements of our fantastic Sixth Form soon.
