Brave the Shave

Mrs Thomas Braves the Shave, written by Rhys, a Year 11 student.

Congratulations Year 11 – GCSE results doubled in one year

We are proud to report that our results have doubled those of last year.   27% (Likely to rise when results are verified) of our students gained 5 A – C grades which represents the highest ever results the combined results of Rumney and Llanrumney school achieved in at least the last decade.  We are also happy to report that 98% or our students gained at least 1 GCSE or equivalent qualification.

We would like to thank the local community for supporting us throughout the transition from the predecessor schools to Eastern High.    We are now most definitely on the right track and look forward to a big increase in our results next year.

Congratulations to all Year 11 pupils on their GCSE results, we wish them all success for the future.

Back to the 80s

From the era that brought the world The Rubik’s Cube, Max Headroom and The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comes this “totally awesome” musical in the style of movies such as Back To The Future, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Karate Kid and The Wedding Singer.

Join the graduating class of William Ocean High School as they live through their final senior year – as they experience the fun, the heartbreak, the loves and the loneliness of growing up…. all set to the biggest hits of the 80’s!!

Culture for Learning Initiative

The Culture for Learning Initiative will be implemented with Year 8 from Monday 20th June.

Further to previous communications to Year 8 parents, the school will be starting its Culture for Learning initiative with Year 8 students with effect from Monday 20th June.  All pupils are fully aware of the school’s expectations and the consequences for not following the school behaviour policy detailed on the attached.  This behaviour policy has already been successfully launched and implemented with our Year 7 pupils and it is our intention to implement within the whole school.  The policy focuses on encouraging and rewarding good habits of learning as part of our Eastern Promise; however, there are also clear sanctions and consequences following misdemeanours.

 If any parent has any queries regarding the policy please contact your child’s College Achievement Manager
