Friday 14th February is a staff training day. However, several Year 11 & sixth form teachers have requested to teach key stage 4 & 5 lessons on that day to help students prepare for both GCSE's and 6th form up coming mocks on the 24th February. Attendance to these lessons is compulsory. Students should arrive 15 minutes before their lesson in their daily, professional attire. If students would like to remain on site during lunchtime, lunch will be provided free of charge. Students must sign in and out at reception.
Year 9 First Give: For causes that are close to our hearts
First Give is a philanthropy education programme that develops the professional skills of students and ignites their social conscience. It engages them in their communities and develops more employable and well-rounded individuals.
First Give provides an interactive and fully-resourced scheme of work delivered across an entire secondary school year group. After researching and visiting charities, students take part in a public-speaking competition to advocate and win grants for their charities in a school final.
The programme sees a combination of in-class learning and active community engagement which inspires a lifelong commitment to charity among young people.
Here are the highlights from our final presentations and awards ceremony.
