Vivo Round Up

It’s great to see this week’s top Vivo earners coming from all year groups. Congratulations to the following students:


Our top forms for the past week are: 8CW, 10TS, 7AG, 7JB and 7KC. Well done to those forms. It won’t be long now until we have our first end of term winners, so keep earning your Vivos!

As usual there are lots of students still needing to pick up their rewards. Some of these have been sitting in the cupboard since early September! Come and pick them up from me Monday – Thursday, after school.

Business Students Visit Cassons

Rhyddings Visit Cassons from Shooters Media on Vimeo.

image008A group our students swapped the classroom for the boardroom as they became apprentice accountants for the day.

Year 11 Business Studies pupils from Rhyddings made a ‘behind the scenes’ visit to Cassons in Haslingden.

The students were set various accounting challenges, including calculating the mocked up profits from a Courteeners concert and working out the tax on a pay slip.

They also learnt about the importance of marketing a business and utilising the power of video and social media channels.

Health & Social Care and Child Development

Year 10 students have settled well into their new courses. A number of students need to watch out for positive postcards arriving on their doorsteps in the next few days! Keep up the good start.

For the Year 11 students, time is flying by and it will soon be exam time! Make sure that you have completed all of your coursework to the best of your ability. You have had your mock results, you now know what you have to do! Remember to attend revision/afterschool sessions to get the most out of your time at Rhyddings; they are on each week.


Well done to the Duke of Edinburgh Students!

Big congratulations go out to the students who have successfully completed their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh award! It’s been a tough year juggling the demands of GCSEs along with the work for the award, but they have done it! There has been sweat, tears, laughs, super-noodles, stripes and sleeping bag races. We’ve had a great time working with such fantastic young people and we decided a celebration meal of pizza (not super-noodles!) and a dessert of a Chupa Chups lollipop was definitely well deserved!
