Last Day of Term Arrangements

On the last day of term, Friday 22nd December, there will be an early finish. After lunch, everybody, apart from Year 11, will go down to St George’s Church for our school carol service, following which students will be dismissed from the church at approximately 2pm. Year 11 will be dismissed from school at 12.30pm, but are welcome to stay for lunch if required.

Let There Be Light!

The Year 8s have been taking part in an Art & Science Super Learning Day today, learning all about light, energy and colour.

After experimenting with light boxes and coloured ribbons in the morning, some of the group visited Cullercoats Methodist Church to get some inspiration for their Christmas themed stained glass windows, which they designed in the afternoon.

Check back soon for the results when our light boxes and stained glass window designs are displayed.
