Dear Parents

We have managed to secure a fantastic opportunity for our Year 10 students to visit the National Holocaust Museum as part of our expedition ‘Are we really free to choose?’ Students have been studying Hitler’s rise to power in Germany and the impact of Nazi rule so this will be an ideal opportunity for students to build their knowledge and ask questions about a key and tragic event in this historical period.

X22 Skipper students will attend on Wednesday 10th April 2019 and Admiral the following day Thursday 11th April 2019.

Students can come in casual dress and they will need to bring a packed lunch. Students who receive Free School Meals will be provided with a packed lunch.

We will leave school at 9.15am and we will return for the end of school at 3.15pm, traffic permitting. If there are any unforeseen delays we will update details via the school website.

A link to the museum’s website is here: https://www.nationalholocaustcentre.net/

Thanks for your support.

X22 Visit to Sheffield Hallam University

Good afternoon

On 25th April 2019, all of Year 10 will be visiting Sheffield Hallam University. The day of part of the region’s Higher Education Participation and Partnerships programme.

Students will learn about pathways through higher education and the nature of university life, including a campus tour.

Students will need to bring a pack-up meal with them. We can provide pack-up for students that normally have school lunches provided.

We will be leaving school at 9.00am by coach, and expect to be back in school for 15.15pm. We are leaving Sheffield at 14.15pm so will keep you updated via the website of any delays incurred through possible traffic.

X22 Extended Study Plan


In order to support X22 students in preparing for GCSE science we have bought all students a beautiful workbook. Extended study will be set each Monday due in the following Monday from this workbook. We have also worked incredibly hard to provide a range of online support which can be found here: https://sites.google.com/xpschool.org/gcsescience/home

I have attached the plan for the next 6 weeks.

I would really appreciate your support with students completing extended study for the deadline assigned.

Best wishes

Mr Campbell

X22 Humanities Extended Study Due Thursday

Students have made an excellent start to our new expedition looking at the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany. This week we have examined the problems facing Germany after WW1, specifically the Treaty of Versailles, hyperinflation and the Great Depression. See below for their beautiful books and notes!

Students have been given an image of a propaganda poster from 1932 to annotate with their thoughts on the posters’ message and purpose. This is due next Thursday (7th February) where we will discuss students findings and prepare for an assessment.

X22 Fieldwork – Leeds Art Gallery

Some beautiful work produced from our students last week: we went to Leeds Art Gallery to view a range of artwork (something for everyone). What was impressive was seeing our students carefully observe the Artwork and doing some lovely studies from them. Much better seeing real works of Art rather than viewing it on a computer or phone.

Celebration of Learning will be next week: to view work from their first expedition. Their skills are developing and I can already see a difference in craftsmanship and quality!

X22 Fieldwork – Leeds Art Gallery

On Thursday 24th January, X22 Skipper will be going on fieldwork to The Leeds Art Gallery and X22 Admiral will go on Friday 25th January.

We will be setting off from XP School at 9am, students are to register with crew leaders at 8.30 as usual and then meet in the heart of the school to re-cap fieldwork protocol, before we leave.

Students will need to bring a packed lunch to eat whilst we are at the Gallery.

We expect to return to school for 3.15pm.
