X23 Fieldwork to Sheffield Hallam University 5th December

There is a fieldwork visit going to Sheffield Hallam University on the 5th December. Students will be working with SHU students who in-turn are working with the South Yorkshire Police to provide workshops to help students understand elements of criminology.

Students will require a packed lunch and will be expected to arrive at school for 8 am that day so that we can leave school at 08:15. We will return to school for 15:30.

Thank you

Students in Year 9 will be visiting the Imperial War Museum in Manchester tomorrow on fieldwork as part of their expedition Don’t Mention the War. Apologies for the late notice on this, but it has only just been confirmed by the provider that we are able to attend.

The fieldwork will take place within normal school hours. Students will leave school at 8.45 and arrive back at school before 15.15, traffic depending. Should there be any delays, we will update the website and let parents and carers know.

Students will need warm clothes as there will be some time spent outside. Students will also need a packed lunch unless they receive free schools meals in which case school will provide one.

Apologies again for the short notice, we appeciate your continued support.

C22 Preparation for Y10

I do appreciate there will be weeks where Tassomai can not be done and that the most important thing for students is that they have a rest this holiday, however if Tassomai can be kept ticking over it would be highly beneficial to students. 

I would be really grateful your support with this.

To both students and families, please have a wonderful summer and enjoy the deserved rest.

Mr Campbell

C22 End of year examinations

Year 9 will have their end of year examinations at the end of this term, in the week commencing 16th July.

Students will sit one GCSE style examination paper in each of the following core subjects:

  • English Language
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • History
  • Spanish

Over the coming weeks the focus of C22’s crew sessions will shift from their Duke of Edinburgh Award to preparation for these examinations and building a sensible revision plan.

Student performance in these examinations will determine the nature and level of support that they receive both in and out of sessions in Year 10.

C22 POL

I’m delighted to announce that the C22 POL performance of An Inspector Calls will be on Wednesday the 4th July for SKIPPER and Thursday the 5th July for ADMIRAL, from 6pm.

We’d really appreciate if you could help your child to learn his/her lines from their scripts in the meantime. The sooner students learn these the better the performances will be!

Thanks, as always, for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all there!

Just a quick reminder for parents of the key dates for C22 students in Crew Nightingale and Bronte. Students will have their final kit check in Crew time on Thursday 14th June and will be bag packing on Thursday 21st June; as a result, students will have a later finish at school of around 5pm. Finally, the Friday the 22nd and 23rd June students will be completing their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh walk. Students need to arrive at school on Friday the 22nd at 7.15am. We would ask that parents please remind students of the need to take care while out on expedition and that mobile phones are not allowed, unless the group have decided that a specific phone is to be used as the emergency contact or it is part of their aim to use them at which point we will remove the SIM card which will be kept safe for the weekend.

Please watch the website during the Saturday afternoon, the expected time back at school is between 5 and 6pm, but this may change due to traffic or any vital de-gunging that may need to take place before students leave.
