School Inset - Great training and leaves a lovely review of our School

On Tuesday the school was fortunate enough to welcome Mr Ross Morrison McGill, author of the Teacher Toolkit

 https://www.teachertoolkit.co.uk/

"Ross started teaching in 1991; a school leader for 20 years, he has worked in some of the most challenging secondary schools in London. In 2015, he was nominated as one of the ‘500 Most Influential People in Britain’ by The Sunday Times. He remains the only classroom teacher to feature to this day. Today, he works with pupils, teachers and school leaders across the world, supporting teaching and learning, workload and teacher mental health".  Information taken from website link above.

The day was informative and allowed teachers to embrace new ideas and develop opportunities that can be used in the classrtoom for the benefit of our pupils.  It was a great day and an extremely worthwhile experience.  Below is Ross' reflections on our school and photos from the day.

Meet St. Brigid’s, Denbigh

St. Brigid’s is an all-through (3-19) school set in the Clwydian Range in Denbighshire, North Wales. My last job was in Wales before the pandemic, so it was wonderful to be back!

The school has a fascinating history and the school site is situated in one of the most beautiful places I have ever worked! You can imagine after 25 years of teaching in London, how epic it must be to teach in a rural community with fabulous views on your classroom doorstep. However, this beautiful landscape does not come without its challenges, and as you and I both know, all school environments face significant challenges.

A former boarding school, it serves approximately ~497 pupils. The headteacher is relatively new to the role, having been a former pupil (which is a fabulous story)!
