Students and staff at The Mount are fortunate to be part of the York Independent State School Partnership (ISSP). In York we believe that working in partnership is to the benefit of everyone and we have one of the country’s leading ISSP networks. York ISSP provides many and varied exciting opportunities for able and interested students from Years 7 to 13 to pursue their interests. You should all follow yorkissp.org to make sure that you keep up-to-date with all that is going on. Events will also be publicised at school and we really encourage you to take part. Stop press news is that the masterclass dates next term are: Saturdays 8th, 15th and 22nd of March. Do your best to keep these dates free. If you have not yet done an ISSP masterclass you have a treat in store. Year 7, this is one of the really good things about having moved up to senior school. There will be a programme going out next term from which you can choose from a menu of really interesting classes. Keep an eye out for that! Meanwhile, this term there will be an aspiration event at the University for Year 9. There will be a Model United Nations event at Huntington School. There will also be a political event for Year 9 and above at the University. The dates will follow. Take a look at yorkissp.org regularly for all the latest information.
