Remembrance Day

On the morning of the 11th of November 2014 the whole school gathered in the dining room to participate in a Remembrance Day assembly which was led by Mr Mara. The presentation included the reading of poems by two year nine pupils. Pupils listened with great interest and observed the two minutes silence in an impeccable manner. The assembly was very successful and created a topic for discussion throughout the day.

In addition to the remembrance day assembly the staff and pupils have planted approximately 400 trees in the shape of a poppy to create the schools’ own memorial garden. During the last few days all tutor groups were given the opportunity to plant their own tree within the display and all pupils participated in the project. The project was led by Mr Hodgson, the Land Based Studies Tutor. Mr Hodgson was assisted by two year 11 pupils.

Children in Need Charity Event Raised in Excess of £150

Staff hosted a fantastic fund raising activity for Children in Need.

All staff and pupils took part in a wheelchair grand prix!

The PE staff created a course around the sports hall, it even included a pit lane.  The school raised over £60 for Children in Need through sales of snacks at break time and raffle ticket sales, as well as donations by both staff and pupils. - Fantastic day ! 

What Does It Mean To Be British?

What does it mean to be British

 

The staff and pupils are currently working on a new SMSC project with a theme of

‘What does it mean to be British’.

Staff and pupils were tasked during tutor time to discuss and produce a mind map with keywords that relating to their understanding about what it means to be British.

The project has been given a notice board in the dining room so that it creates a high profile within school.

 

With the key significance of Remembrance day the Art department along with year 8 have produced hand painted Poppies to form part of the display.

This board is very much work in progress and updates will be shown in the near future.
