Foxford Girls Football Team

Foxford Vs Whitley Academy match
report by Miss Edwards

Wednesday, 30 January 2019

It was a 6 a side indoor home football match against Whitley Academy who turned up with grit

and determination. Our girls were ready for the fight. First half of the game the girls played

well, a little shy but held their own. Second half the girls fought hard. The defence was

incredible with Amelia as our main defender. Ellie lifted the spirits of the team, as we were

losing, with a beauty of a goal. Jess played upfront and had some shots on goal

and finally she hit the back of the net. Well done to all the girls who played.

Bring on the next game. Caitlin was awarded player of the match voted by Whitley.

Foxford Student Leadership Team

Over the past four weeks students in year ten had an opportunity to apply for the 2018/2019 year eleven student leadership programme where students apply for senior student leadership posts of responsibility in the school. These posts range from Head boy and girl, deputy and associate position.

Each student had to go through a rigorous interview process before being selected and this wasn’t easy. The interview panel consisted of the Head Teacher, myself and Mr. Singh ( Director of Learning for Year ten). It gave each candidate an opportunity to see first-hand how people are recruited into formal posts, something that is being further developed on enrichment day where employers are coming into Foxford to interview our year ten students.

From next academic year the year eleven student leadership team will be involved in a number of activities ranging from helping and supporting around the school and on the Foxford fun day and more importantly helping shape the future of Foxford.

In all that applied – well done you made us all proud.

Director of Learning Year 10

11th – 13th May 2018

DofE students travelled to Folly Farm - Cotwolds last weekend to participate in their Bronze practice expedition. The aim of the expedition was for students to hone their navigation, camping and cooking skills before their final expedition in July.

Foxford Magistrates’ Team

Foxford_Magistrates_Court_1718.JPG

On Saturday, 17 March 2018 Foxford Magistrates’ team visited the Coventry Magistrates’ Court to take part in a mock trial. The trial involved an allegation about possession of a knife in a public place. The team prosecuted against Rugby High School and defended against King Edward the 6th from Stratford. Everyone who took part did very well and Kian Doherty in 8F2 received an individual prize for his performance. The students felt that participating has improved their confidence and their knowledge of the legal process. They also discovered how serious possession of a knife can be if it comes before the court. We will be looking for next

year’s team from the current Year 8 and 7 students. Let your tutor know if you would

like to be involved. Mr Thompson and Ms Pradhan

Foxford artwork brightens up the corridors in University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire

We are delighted to announce that the work that was produced by past students in year 10 and 11 is now being displayed in UHCW. Student’s worked closely with the hospital’s Healing Arts Programme. They looked at the artist Iain Macarthur and how he creates portraits of ordinary animals/people and transforms their faces from something plain to something entirely bizarre and wonderful at the same time. A space has been specifically dedicated at the hospital for the student’s artwork on the 2nd floor corridor. This will help significantly to the contribution to improve the wellbeing and health of patients, service users and carers as well as staff and those working in health and the arts.

University of Cambridge visit

Year 10 had an overnight visit to Clare College, University of Cambridge on Monday, 25 September. It was a fantastic opportunity for them to experience student life and a chance to think about the choices that are open to them.

‘I think one of my favourite parts of the trip was the museum tour; all of the different pieces of artwork and each statue was so interesting, and it really created a sense of history throughout Cambridge. All in all, it gave me an idea of what to expect from going to a university in the future, and how I should best spend my time there.’

Why are GCSEs in England changing?

We are committed to driving the highest standards in schools. That’s why we have revised our GCSE qualifications in England to make them more demanding. We have done this so our young people have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in 21st century Britain, and to match those of their peers in high-performing education systems elsewhere in the world.

The new, more challenging GCSEs will help young people‎ develop the skills that employers tell us they need.

When are they changing?

From August 2017, the new qualifications will start to be awarded with number grades, rather than letters. The new grading scale runs from 9 to 1 instead of A* to G, with 9 the highest grade.

Not all GCSEs are changing at once – English language, English literature and maths are changing first, with students sitting these exams this summer. By 2020, all GCSEs in England will be reformed and graded using numbers instead of letters. However, most GCSEs taken by students at schools in Wales and Northern Ireland will continue to be graded A* to G.

FA Official Ms Massey-Ellis MBE visit

Sian_Massey_Foxford.JPG   In February Foxford School was very lucky to be visited by
football referee and ex-member of staff Ms Massey-Ellis MBE.
Ms Massey-Ellis MBE left Foxford School at the end of the
Summer term to focus on her Referee career. Ms Massey-Ellis
was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE)
in the 2017 New Year Honours for services to football.

Foxford School has been chosen to pilot a community programme
by PGMOL group (Professional game match officials). If the
programme is successful the sessions will be trialled out to start in
September 2017. Top match officials will be visiting Coventry
schools to run the sessions.


The sessions are based on helping students develop their communication, problem solving and team building skills. Students worked in small teams to design equipment or clothing that would be useful in enhancing the role of the referee. Students had the opportunity to gain an insight into what is carried in a referee’s kit bag and have a play and explore of what is already used. Students also got to have a look at the different types of kit worn by the referee.

Hazel entertained the crowd by singing her 1980’s hit record “Will you”.

“She was amazing” said one Foxford student who was watching her sing.

Feedback from the event:

'Thank you for our charity glitter tattoos stall at Foxford Funday on Saturday. We had a great afternoon, and made £90 for our charity. I would just like to say how lovely, friendly and polite the young people from Foxford were who we met, from the young ladies selling newspapers to the lads who wanted tattoos on their foreheads! I hope they washed off in time for school today! And the musicians and singers at your school are amazing.'

Later in the week 6 girls from the school were invited to the Rugby World Cup fanzone in Trafalgar Square where they met Womens Rugby World Cup winner Rachael Burford - and participated in games and events in the fanzone.

Raising money for charity - Stay Awake Event

Post 16 students have held a charity event to raise much needed money for 3 chosen charities.  The students (with supporting staff members) stayed awake for 24 hours on Friday 6 November 2015.

This year they raised money for: ‘The extra mile’ (a school being built in Sierra Leone, which Foxford sixth form has supported for many years), The refugee crisis and Zoe’s place (a children’s hospice in Coventry).

The total raised so far is:

£850.00 But they are still aiming to reach over £1,000.00!

UPDATE 16/11/15 - Total raised so far: £1,016.11

A massive thank you to everyone!
