This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my website. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Leicester City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Leicester community.

Array ( [0] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 17770 [post_author] => 5 [post_date] => 2020-10-13 13:37:26 [post_date_gmt] => 2020-10-13 12:37:26 [post_content] => Tormead is delighted to announce that Lucy in the Lower Sixth has been awarded a prestigious national Arkwright Engineering Scholarship, sponsored by the Royal Navy. This is particularly exciting as the Royal Navy offers many unique opportunities to their sponsored scholars to see the work of engineers first-hand. Lucy has long been interested in a career in engineering and this award confirms our belief in her potential to be a leader in that profession. This brings the total number of Tormead girls who have won an Arkwright Scholarship to eight, over the past five years. Applications are open now; any Year 11 girl interested in a career in engineering should contact Mr Wilkinson (Head of Physics) or Mr Braun (Head of Design & Technology). About the Arkwright Engineering Scholarships The Arkwright Engineering Scholarships programme inspires and nurtures future leaders in engineering. The programme tackles its aim by awarding engineering scholarships to high-calibre students to support them through their A Levels and Scottish Advanced Highers. Since 1991, Arkwright has awarded nearly 6,000 engineering scholarships. Arkwright also awards a small number of undergraduate scholarships each year, available exclusively to existing Arkwright A Level scholars. Scholars are selected for their potential as future engineering leaders by assessing their academic, practical and leadership skills in engineering disciplines. These are gauged through a rigorous selection process comprising an assessed application form including a teacher’s reference, a two-hour problem-solving aptitude exam and a university-based interview. The scholarships support students through their Sixth Form studies and encourages them into top universities or higher apprenticeships. The scholarships consist of an annual financial award to each scholar and to his/her school, and enrichment activities such as mentoring and industry visits that enhance a scholar's experience of engineering in a real-world context. Arkwright Engineering Scholarships are highly regarded by university admission tutors and industry recruiters and are one of the most prestigious accolades that a talented sixth form student can receive. The scholarships are supported by more than 150 different sponsoring organisations: commercial and industrial companies, industry regulators, government organisations, universities, professional institutions, trade associations, training boards, livery companies, the Armed Forces, charitable trusts, personal donors and schools.

With nearly 90% of girls accepting places at their chosen universities, there is much to celebrate! The girls are also commended for the resilience and good cheer they have shown in coping with these extraordinary circumstances, especially given that they have not been provided with the opportunity to prove themselves in the context of examinations. Christina Foord, Headmistress, said, “I could not be prouder of the Class of 2020. Had they had the opportunity to sit their exams, I know they would have excelled. They still have every reason to celebrate and the university careers (after some gap years) that await will be stellar. But some are rightfully disappointed and I hope that my appeals on their behalf to the awarding bodies will bear fruit. Keep in touch girls: enjoy your futures!" We are immensely proud of them all – good luck, Class of 2020!

With millions of people taking to the streets in solidarity with George Floyd’s family and the Black Lives Matter movement, it will not surprise you to know, that we have also been asking what we can do, as a Tormead community, to contribute to the important national discourse taking place in the UK and the education sector as a whole. In doing so, we have taken some time to consider our response, meeting as a Governing body, with both the current and future Heads of the school. At the outset, we want to thank current girls and alumnae who have reached out to us in great numbers, either through social media, or by writing directly to the Headmistress, or to the Governing Board. We feel incredibly proud of the constructive way you have engaged with the school, with a sincere intent and positive suggestions. At Tormead we are very clear that racism has no place within our community and are committed to creating a school environment that is intolerant of prejudice and discrimination, in whatever guise it presents itself. We are proud of the fact that one of Tormead’s core values encapsulates this spirit, “We treat everyone with respect and dignity”, and were pleased that in the school’s last inspection this was recognised, “Pupils are tolerant, and respect diversity”. However, we recognise that there is still progress to be made in increasing the representation of BAME students and staff, and are committed to further improving diversity and inclusivity across the school. We want all girls to feel that Tormead is a place in which they can learn and grow, and our staff enjoy teaching and working, irrespective of their background or ethnicity; and we want to play our part, as a leading educational establishment, in the creation of a more inclusive society. We have therefore asked David Boyd, our incoming Head from September 2020, to form a group of staff, current students, school leaders and other members of our extended community, as a Diversity and Equality committee, with the remit of exploring ways that we can increase the representation of BAME students and staff at Tormead, and ensure our school remains an inclusive environment for all. We recognise that we are in a privileged position, as a school entrusted to prepare this generation of girls for life beyond Tormead, and want to give our girls the tools to counter discrimination in the wider environment. We will also continue to look at areas of our curriculum, such as the range of writers in English, or ensuring the teaching of European colonialism and its global impact, and more specifically Black histories are covered appropriately. Our teachers are gathering resources and looking at how we can use PSHCE lessons, assemblies and tutorial sessions to engage current students of all ages, with the events of the last few weeks, and the broader societal issues they have raised. Many of the images from protests in the United States that have been widely distributed across news channels and social media have been deeply upsetting and challenging, and any girls who have been affected or have questions, can always speak with their tutor, Head of Year or Mrs Foord directly. We also encourage any BAME students who want to talk about their experience and any observations that they may have on how we can better respect their heritage to contact Mrs Foord or Mr Boyd. We want this letter to be the start of a genuine dialogue between all sections of our school community and I look forward to updating you in the months ahead on what progress we are making to implement meaningful change towards greater diversity and inclusivity. With best wishes to you and your families at this time.

We have today been recognised as one of the very best schools in the world and become accredited as a High Performance Learning World Class School. The award, only given to 11 other institutions globally, recognises schools at the forefront of educational thinking with exceptional outcomes for students. Tormead now joins an elite global community of schools from Dubai to Mexico, who routinely share practice and support each other. Professor Deborah Eyre, Chair at High Performance Learning (the accreditation body) said: “Truly world-class schools understand that while grades are important, producing students who are intellectually and socially confident, work-place and life-ready with a global outlook and concern for others is our true aim. Tormead has worked hard to strengthen its practice and to move closer to the vision of every child becoming a high performer.” Staff and girls at Tormead School went through a rigorous and demanding two-year journey supported by the HPL organisation, to encourage all children to achieve success academically and throughout their lives. Tormead Headmistress, Christina Foord, said: “We have so enjoyed embracing all that the HPL programme offers us – staff, parents and girls. It resonates so clearly with our approach to education in its fullest sense and indeed, in these challenging times, we are seeing many of the benefits as we develop our remote learning provision. The skills and attributes the girls acquire will support them in their education and their adult lives.

High Performance Learning

High Performance Learning (HPL) is a mission-driven organisation, working with schools and teachers to change the face of education and deliver student high performance for the many - whatever their background - not the few. HPL is a proven, research-based, pedagogy-led approach, which relies on teachers and their professional capital to help self-improving schools make the gear change to become world class. Its impact on the school is dramatic and sustained. HPL work with both UK and international schools, state and independent sectors, and with multi-academy trusts. What HPL schools have in common is that they put teaching and learning at their heart and they are committed to accepting that everyone is a potential high performer and aiming for less is no longer acceptable. HPL provides a flexible teaching and learning framework for systematically building the cognitive competencies that lead to academic and lifetime success. In an HPL school, the philosophy and framework become part of a school's DNA – an underpinning philosophy and common language for teaching and learning that drives the work of the school and brings coherence to the modern culture of targets, initiatives and programmes.
