Reading Project

For the next four weeks, ten of our Year 9 students will be visiting Saltergate Junior School with Mrs Brown to help Year 5 students with their reading.  This is an excellent project for our students to be involved in – thank you to Kris Shori, Cleo Vine, James Loble, Vaani Sagoo, Jay Dodsworth, Kaitlin Mills, Niamh Cunningham, Tom Muir, Alicia Williamson, Matthew Tipler.

Leeds Apprenticeship Fair

On Monday some of our Sixth Form students attended the Leeds Apprenticeship Fair at the First Direct Arena in Leeds.  This is the largest Fair in the North of the country and hosted over 100 national and regional employers from a range of sectors.  Employers offered a range of information to students including advice on the types of apprenticeships they offer, including the new degree apprenticeships and information on the recruitment process involved.  This has been a valuable opportunity for Year 13 students to explore apprenticeship opportunities post A Level.

A Level Geography Field Trip

Year 12 Geographers returned yesterday from a successful few days visiting the Holderness Coast.   We could not believe our luck with the weather which allowed for three days of intense data collection and revision of coastal processes. Students found the trip both enjoyable and beneficial and are now in a good position to prepare for their AS exam and write up their independent study. I would like to thank them all for their fantastic attitudes and behaviour.
