C22 Fieldwork to Sheffield Hallam University

All Year 9 students will be taking part in fieldwork at Sheffield Hallam University next week on Tuesday 23rd January.

Pupils will learn about globalisation, international economies and country evaluation techniques, and apply these to their business client and country of interest. They will produce a 1 page summary report for a business client, with the support of first year university students studying international business. They will also gain an insight into what it’s like to study business at degree level, by working with students studying the subject.

We will be leaving school at 8am by coach. So all Year 9 students will need to be in school ready to be registered at 7.50am.

We will arrive back in school at 12.30 so there is no need to provide a pack-up lunch unless you usually do so.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of our community a very happy new year.

All classes will be starting exciting new learning expeditions or in some cases learning expedition slices, which will run until our two week break in February.

Please find below details of the staff that will be working with each class. For any queries relating to your son or daughter’s learning expeditions, please contact the lead teacher in the first instance.

Many thanks

Hello and happy new year to you all! 

Just a reminder that Y9 Admiral will be out on fieldwork tomorrow, 3rd Jan and Y9 Skipper on Wednesday 4th Jan. 

Please remember to bring a packed lunch, make sure you are wearing warm clothing (big coats, hats, gloves and scarves necessary) and wear comfortable footwear that you don’t mind getting dirty/muddy.
