Year 7 visit Belgrade Theatre to watch Private Peaceful
6th June 2022
On Thursday 19th, May Year 7 visited The Belgrade Theatre to see Michael Morpurgo’s Private Peaceful, their class novel, performed on stage. The story is narrated by a young soldier and follows a day in his life at the front during WW1, capturing his memories as he looks back over his life.
This was the first trip the Year 7’s have experienced together since coming to Exhall Grange. Pupils and staff enjoyed the performance immensely. All the teachers commented on how proud they were of the pupils’ exemplary behaviour as ambassadors for our school. We look forward to many more enrichment activities with the wonderful Year 7’s!

Fundraising for Red Nose Day: Primary Funathlon
25 April 2022
On Friday 18th March, Primary pupils took part in a ‘Funathalon’ to raise money for Comic Relief. The afternoon consisted of three separate sponsored activities – similar to a triathlon but with much more fun.
We began with a singathon in the Hive. Pupils voted for songs to sing.
After 30 minutes, the pupils moved to the field for the walkathon – as many laps of the field as possible in 30 minutes. The final event was a dancethon – 30 minutes of dancing in the playground.
As as school, we raised £1299.94 in total, with £1100 of this coming from Primary. We thank you for all your support with this.
