Welcome to Minsthorpe Community College
Welcome to the website for Minsthorpe Community College. We aim to present important information about our college and to give you an insight into the many facets of college life. If you require further details or can’t find the information you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us using the details below.
What an amazing term it has been! In assemblies, at staff meetings and parents’ evenings during our first term as Joint Principals, we have shared the important message that everyone plays their part in making Minsthorpe Community College a great place to learn. As you look through the fantastic photos and read the articles in our newsletter, we are sure that you will see this teamwork in action.
The curriculum at Minsthorpe is so much more than the learning that happens in classrooms every day. It is also about the rich opportunities enjoyed by students beyond this. We would like to thank the staff who are absolutely committed to organising these experiences for the students and the parents for supporting their children in participating in them.
In meetings with students, staff and parents we have listened to everyone’s views about how we can improve our already good College. From these conversations, we have formulated a new vision for the College.
Minsthorpe Community College: A place where everyone plays their part in strengthening our learning community through motivation, commitment and care.
We will return to this with everyone in the new term.
Back to College
The Autumn Term starts for students on Wednesday 4th September 2019.
Year 7 arrive at 8.25am.
Years 8 – 11 arrive at Snack Break 1. (Please do not arrive on site until 10.25am.)
As always, students will spend the morning in P&A time and assemblies. Normal lessons will begin in the afternoon.
The high expectations required from all our students remain unchanged:
- To demonstrate the 6Rs and ‘Learn the Minsthorpe Way’
- To follow the Code of Conduct and ‘Behave the Minsthorpe Way’
We know that students learn best in classrooms, which are calm, safe and orderly. It is unacceptable for a student to stop others from learning. We will be revisiting our high expectations with students in assemblies and ask that parents follow this link and discuss the presentation with their child.
On a final note, our drive to improve whole College attendance remains a priority for us. Simply put: students need to be in College to learn and make progress. We thank you for working with us to ensure that your child receives the best education possible at Minsthorpe Community College.
Thank you for a great first term! Have a good summer!
