X24 did their first work in the science lab during this expedition – looking at cooling and insulation. We’d like to appreciate Mr. Green who came in to help us out.
On Wednesday 8th May, students in X24 will be performing William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet as their final product for the expedition REBELLION.
The performance will take place at 6pm at XP EAST. Please ensure you arrive in time to be seated before the performance starts.
Students in X24 will be expected to stay at school until the end of their Presentation of Learning. The reason for this is because this will allow time for the students to do a rehearsal before the evening performance. Therefore, please can you ensure that students bring enough food to fuel them for the evening.
If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact school.
We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
We’ve been really lucky this week to have the MANufacturing TRAnsport visiting from the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Sheffield. On Monday and Tuesday this week, students from XP and XP East have been able to experience something of the future of manufacturing and engineering on this fantastic lorry! We’ve handled objects, used AR to investigate an engine and tried out virtual MIG welding. Congratulations to Kelsea who was the champion welder with an impressive 91% score for the quality of her weld!
We’re looking forward to working again with the team from the AMRC and would like to appreciate them for their hard work in setting everything up and working with our students.
It’s fantastic to see our X24 students working so hard during our first week back. Praise butterflies this week were awarded to Isaac, Vinnie, Aaisha, Chris, Jaggy, Courtney, Kyra, Bella, Charlotte, Milla, Charlie and Harpreet. Butterflies were awarded by staff and by students for consistent hard work, being kind, showing compassion and in one case – for being epic!
Well done everyone!
Fantastic end to this half term. Congratulations to Isaac, Charlie W, Kyra, Charlotte, Milla, Jayden, Charlie P, J-D, Thomas, Roshni, Finn, Francesca, Henry, Rikki, Jaggy, Kyle, Kian and Ashley. Excellent work this week showing the XP Character Traits and HOWLs.

The Year 8 Presentation of Learning will take place on Tuesday 8th May for Skipper and Wednesday 9th May for students in Admiral. The evening will be held at The Point in Doncaster at 5.30pm. We have chosen The Point as it provides students the opportunity to perform their poetry to an authentic audience and in the home of Doncaster Community Arts. Students will need to be collected from the venue not from School at 6.30pm. Students are looking forward to sharing their hard work with you.
If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact School.

All students have been set two short tasks to complete on Hegarty Maths in preparation for sessions next week. The deadline is for completion by Wednesday 18th April.
We have decided to postpone C23’s fieldwork to Flamborough Head that was scheduled for this Friday 16th of March. The weather forecast predicts strong winds and heavy rain and having completed a risk assessment, we have decided that it would not be wise to continue with the trip.
We will instead reschedule the visit for Skipper to Tuesday 20th March. Please see our original post on fieldwork requirements for the day.
