Student Success Stories

A huge thank you to Alex, Jaya, Braydon and Helen who have given up their time to share their Work experience Success Stories. We were impressed with so many students who were proactive to organise themselves placements during their summer holidays for part of the new Employability Skills topic that students learned throughout last year. Students will be given feedback over the coming weeks once all feedback has been collated from the employers in terms of final scores which go towards the Character Education award for year 10/11.

Miss Campbell, Mr Hughes and Mr Eadon.

The Philosophy and Ethics level ladder has being published to support the progress of students across the all year groups. This will support and inform all Home Learning projects and assessments the Philosophy and Ethics department set over the course of this year.
