The introduction of new exam specifications in GCSE subjects has resulted in a request for extra time in Key Stage 4 from a large number of teachers. As a response to this request we are in the process of considering moving to a 3 year Key stage 4 starting in September.

The Birmingham Civic Society's Next Generation Awards scheme has been running for twelve years and worked with over 26,500 young people. Each year approximately 20 Birmingham Schools participate.
The award scheme is an assessed project-based programme for 11-14 year-olds. It is an inclusive project which is great for developing pupils' skills in team-working, ICT, presentation, creative writing and problem solving, and to help the pupils in Birmingham to become active citizens that contribute positively to future of our city.
At Turves Green Girls’ School, we ran the project across the whole of Year 7 with many groups coming up with fantastic ideas for projects that could make a difference to both pupils at our school and beyond in the community.
The winning group from our school were ‘The Healthy Hunters’, a group of six pupils who wanted to run a healthy eating and exercise club after school. Their idea and presentation was excellent and saw them beating off competition from 15 schools in the semi-finals to reach the final on Thursday 5th October at Royal Bank of Scotland in Brindley Place, Birmingham.
The girls gave a fantastic presentation to the judges on the night and, although they were not judged as being the winners of the night, staff and parents alike were extremely proud of them and their achievement.
Here are the team celebrating their Success. Well done Girls!

To all Year 11 pupils and Parents. Please see the letters below for important information about the Year 11 Prom which will take place on Friday 30th June and guidance for pupils after leaving day on Friday 9th June.
Dear Parents & Carer,
I am writing to let you know that the official start of Year 11 Study Leave for the GCSE examinations this year is Friday 9th June 2017.
On that day, pupils will be expected to wear normal school uniform and will leave school at the usual time of 3.00pm.
We have chosen this particular day as it ends a week of lots of exams taken by the majority of pupils. During this week we expect your daughter to attend each day. When she is not in an actual examination she will go to her usual lessons where she will be expected to undertake supervised revision.
There are some GCSEs taking place in the two weeks after 9th June. Some teachers have arranged specific revision sessions to support your daughter during her Study Leave. If these have been arranged then it is vital that your daughter attends them.
If your daughter would like to come into school to revise during Study Leave, she is more than welcome and we will provide a quiet and supervised space for her to do so. She will need to sign in / out at Reception so that we know exactly who is on site (in case of emergencies).
Tips on how to revise can be found in your daughter’s planners, the School Website or on Moodle (Student / Home Study).
The last GCSE examination will take place on the morning of 23rd June, and this is Edexcel Science Physics Unit 3.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or Mrs McAuley on 0121 464 8346.
We are pleased to be able to present the letter below that the school recently received from BEP, the Birmingham Education Partership.
