Last week both Admiral and Skipper group had the opportunity to ask questions to two experts, Norman Edmanson and Liam Scully.
Norman has a great deal of experience of industry within Doncaster and Liam Scully is Chief Executive of Doncaster Rovers Community Foundation. The students were asking questions to gain a greater understanding of what makes a successful community.

Just a quick reminder to all parents and students. We will be doing a short piece of fieldwork on Thursday over at the site of the new school. The weather forecast looks as though it may be a little wet, so can all students bring their waterproof jacket and wellington boots! Lunch arrangements and timings of the day will remain the same, just remember to pack clothes to keep dry!
We will be holding extracurricular activities after school for those students who would like to stay and get involved. Sessions are voluntary and students can choose which they attend. We just ask that parents make the necessary arrangements for collecting students at the appropriate times before they commit to sessions.
Just a reminder that school will be closed to students on the 19th and 22nd September, as shown on our School Calendar. Any meals ordered and paid for the 19th will be credited to the following day or week.
Lunch for the w/c 29th September
- The menu will be available to view online as normal (between Friday 19th and Monday 22nd September).
- Please submit your order during this time for the following week.
- It can be paid for on the 23rd Sept.
Live Blog Fieldwork in Don Gorge
An XP. parent Miss Welch has kindly set up a Facebook parent group.
The group is designed so parents can post things and offer any support or advice. It is a place to ask questions and where everyone can share information.
Students are out of school on both Thursday and Friday this week for fieldwork. Our two classes of 25 are named Skipper or Admiral. Each class will be doing either Humanities or STEM fieldwork on either day. See below for details. Your son or daughter will be able to tell you whether they are in Skipper or Admiral.
For the day that they have STEM fieldwork, your son or daughter will travel by minibus to the sites and work alongside staff and experts. They will be out of school all day so will need a packed lunch, wellies or old shoes and a waterproof top. If your son or daughter has free school meals, we will provide a packed lunch.
For the Humanities fieldwork, students will be outdoors so will need to dress appropriately but will return to school for lunch. School will start and finish at the usual time on both days, for both classes.
Thursday 4th September: STEM fieldwork (packed lunch, waterproof and wellies or old shoes needed)
Friday 5th September: Humanities fieldwork
Thursday 4th September: Humanities fieldwork
Friday 5th September: STEM fieldwork (packed lunch, waterproof and wellies or old shoes needed)
Thanks to everyone at Outward Bound, Aberdovey to help create the perfect start to our new school.
