  • Reading Challenge

    Published 16/11/21

    Well done and thank you to all of our KS3 students who took part in the October holiday reading challenge. It was lovely to read your thoughts on John Buchan's The Thirty-Nine Steps; I'm glad so many of you enjoyed it! It was fantastic to get together and chat about the book too so thank you to those who attended the first book group meeting last week.

    It was very difficult to choose a winner for the best book review but the winner is....
    Harry W in 7SJH. Well done, Harry! His review will be on display outside the
    library for all to see.   

    I look forward to the Christmas holiday reading challenge and the next book group meeting!

  • Maintaining good attendance

    Published 16/11/21

    It is important that parents and students understand the crucial importance of maintaining good attendance. The diagram on this page is calculated directly from Borden's results in 2021. It also reflects an identical, if not even more pronounced, pattern in previous years. It is absolutely clear that attendance above 95% has a direct impact on progress and outcomes for students and attendance below this amount will start to impact negatively.

    It may seem like stating the obvious but turning up and trying are the two biggest markers for success at school. So, please help us to help your child be in school as much as possible.

  • Year 13 Annual Prize Giving

    Published 24/09/21

    Borden Grammar School’s annual Prize Giving Evening was an opportunity to congratulate and acknowledge achievements by last year's Year 13 before they embarked on a life of study and careers outside of the school. Headteacher, Ashley Tomlin, paid tribute to the remarkable resilience and mental fortitude shown by the students in the last eighteen months with the impact of the Covid 19 global pandemic. 

    Thanks to technology, former student and ‘Innocent Drinks’ co-founder Dan Germain delivered the keynote speech.   He fondly recalled former Headteacher Bryan Short ensuring that Dan’s hair was above collar length by pointing him in the direction of the barbers in East Street.   Dan also had warm memories of Mr Short taking time to build relationships with pupils by asking them how they were and how their lessons were going.   Dan wished all prize winners the best of luck for their future destinations, and gave the advice ‘if you're not learning, you’re standing still’.  Advice that he had used when forming ‘Innocent Drinks’ and also in his current role at ‘Google’
