Year Group Ethos
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I am deeply proud to have the opportunity to take such a dedicated and diligent group of students through what could be argued are the most important academic examinations of their lives.
Since our return it has been clear to all of us here at Robert Clack that our Year 10s have returned to school with immense ambition to tackle all obstacles and academic challenges before them, and in doing so enhance their understanding of and, passion for their individual subject areas with the overall aim to surpass all expectations in their examinations towards the end of both years 10 and 11.
The key tool that each of us have with which to progress is communication. Asking teachers for extra work, exam paper practice, after school revision sessions and tips for study techniques is something that all students should be doing at present. Regular communication between home and school is also a fantastic method by which to ensure that all of our students are being supported. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any concerns you may have.
I look forward to the success and happiness of all of our students as well as seeing where their efforts shall lead them in the future.
Notable successes with the year group
Under 16 Netball
What a fantastic start to the season the U16 Netball Squad have had. They started with the borough round of the National schools and proceeded through to the counties as winners beating all the other schools in the borough. On Sunday 18th October in at county level the girls played some tough competition playing against girls who train with outside clubs at county level. However, they held their own and gave each team a good game with amazing performances from all the girls. Coach’s Player goes to Elona, Lily and Tricia who gave 100% in every game in every position they played in.
The U16 also went through to the second round of the national school cup with superb performances from the whole team, especially Zivile who was mesmerising to watch. Her improvement so far this year has been quite impressive.
The U16 girls have also won their games in the Essex cup Netball League, winning against West Hatch School 28-4.
The team consists of the following girls;
Aminat Durowoju, Elona Morina, Tricia Osazuwa, Zivile Gudeikyte, Chioma Oleh, Loretta Omeruanzoje, Lily Saunders (Captain), Mariah Jover, Timi Peter, Era Ceka and Adeyosola Boboye

English Schools Cross Country
On a cold but sunny morning, Mrs Kirby along with 12 girls, went to Blackshots in Thurrock to compete in the English Schools Cross Country. They were among many private schools but that didn’t unsettle our runners. The junior girls (years 7&8) went first with some great runs from Amelia Balogun and Toni-Ann Barron followed by the Intermediate Team and the girls in Years 9&10 whom not only ran amazingly but all finished in the top places. The team consisted of the following girls:
Megan Fawcett, Ellie Winston, Elizabeth Olabode, Smilte Truncaite, Stephany Nuncio and Amma Apau
