Learning to Learn: Expert Project
Year 9 were challenged as part of their Key Stage 3 Learn to Learn course to become an expert on any topic in just a year, and showcased their research and results in presentations to fellow students last Thursday.
Year 12 student Lily beat tough competition from like-minded lovers of the theatre, successfully applying for the post of stage manager for the Crucible’s People Theatre’s summer production ‘Stuff’ by Tom Wells.
The years of hard work from seven fabulous Sixth Form pupils has paid off this January, and they are delighted to receive offers from one of the two most esteemed universities in the UK, Oxford and Cambridge. Congratulations!
Fashion straight from the drawing board
Today’s annual Design Day was the chance for crafty fashionistas in Year 9 to make and show off their dream clothing creations. This was a fashion show with a twist - all the clothes being modelled were entirely made out of paper in just a few hours.
