Open School Morning
Many thanks to those of you who attended our Open Morning yesterday. 52 parents and carers visited, which considering the awful weather, was very impressive. The stars of the show were the 6th form students who acted as tour guides and ran the cafe in our vocation centre. A few snippets of feedback are given below:
- The atmosphere around the school was amazing. The staff and children made everyone feel welcome.
- Great to see the culture and environment in school. Lovely calm and welcoming atmosphere. Brilliant guides.
- It has been really interesting seeing the school ‘full’, I’ve visited before but the students weren’t in. Jack was our tour guide and what an amazing young man, he is a credit to the school and his family.
- Great to see classes in action, a calm, warm and inclusive feel all across the school. Thank you to the amazing tour guides, Brandon and Luke, they are a credit to the school.
I'm a teacher, get me out of here!
As well as marking Children in Need day with a non-uniform day, we had our traditional 'Students v Staff' challenge in assembly this week, run by our very own Ant 'n' Dec, Mr Drogie and Mr Highley. The challenges included negotiating an After Eight mint from forehead to mouth without using your hands and a baked bean lucky dip! Students won all of the challenges, meaning that the losing members of staff had to make a donation to Children in Need. Quite right too!
Have a great weekend!
