Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award
– On Thursday 18th and Friday 19th June, students undertaking the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award will be completing their final expedition. They will be travelling to Edale in the Peak District, where they will participate in two days of walking, navigating, cooking for themselves and camping. We wish all students involved the best in achieving their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Year 7 Gifted and Talented Visit
– Year 7 Gifted and Talented students will be visiting the Lowry on Friday 19th June, where they will take part in an artist workshop with a professional artist, which will allow them to develop their personal, learning and thinking skills. They will also have the opportunity to build on work that they have already completed in English and Humanities through the medium of Art. Our Year 7 pupils have been taking part in this activity for a number of years now and they always have a very enjoyable experience and they get to apply their knowledge in a different context which is both challenging and rewarding for them. We hope they have an enjoyable and informative time.
