Year 9 Parents Evening

Year 9 Parents Evening is on Monday 30 April, between 3.45pm and 6.15pm. This provides you with an opportunity to meet with your child’s subject teachers, to discuss progress towards targets and their expected outcomes for the end of their first year of GCSE studies.  It is also an ideal opportunity to discuss how they have settled in and how best you can support them.

Students will be given appointment sheets tomorrow to make their appointments with subject teachers. If you are not available on the night and would like to arrange a meeting with your child’s Continent Leader during the school day, please contact the school to arrange an appointment.

Young Chef Competition

This week, Year 9 students Owen Woodman and Dominic Johnston took part in the regional heat of the Reg Johnson Young Chef competition held at Blackburn College.

The boys cooked some amazing food and only narrowly missed out on making the final, finishing 3rd and 4th respectively.

Catering teacher Mrs Neary said: “The competition was tough and scoring was very close. The boys did themselves and the school proud. Their food was fantastic.”

Pancake Pandemonium!

A massive ‘Well Done’ to Henry Pemberton and Liam Colleran, both Year 8 students, who assisted by Miss Widdowson and Ms Greenwood, provided staff throughout the school with pancakes for breakfast over the last two days.

They offered a variety of fillings and toppings including fresh strawberries, chocolate sprinkles and traditional lemon and sugar. They worked extremely hard and were in school well before 8 am each day to get organised.

Between them they cooked over 50 pancakes and served around 30 staff members. However the best bit is that as a result of their amazing effort, they raised £56 for a local charity Wil’s Wishes. Well done boys!

Escape Room Challenge

Last month, Miss Jackson and Mr Trickett took six of our most able Year 9 Mathematicians to the Escape Room in Preston. They had just 60 minutes to solve challenging puzzles to escape the interactive and intuitive real-life game or risk being locked in forever!

They started the game handcuffed together – including Mr Trickett! They worked hard together as a team and solved ALL of the problems however, they were just minutes away from escaping the room in time!

The students involved were:

  • Yusuf Ahmed
  • Morgan Grimshaw
  • Reuben Barnes
  • Luke Crawford
  • Kyle Ashworth
  • Owen Geary

Well done boys – super proud of you. See you when you get out!

Early Closure Tuesday 13 March – Cancelled

Due to the unavoidable school closures recently I have decided not to allow the students to leave early next week for the twilight training session.  Therefore students will leave on Tuesday 13 March at the normal time of 3:15pm.  Thank you for your cooperation.

Mr Trickett.
