Year 11 Food preparation and nutrition students coursework
Our Year 11 GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition students have now completed their practical cooking assessment where they showcased a range of skills. The task was to create three dishes from the Asian culture with consideration given to presentation. They have researched Asian foods and completed a number of trial practical’s leading to their final three courses. Our students were creative and showed a wide range of practical skills and they should be very proud of their achievements.
George Allen – Autism Film Writer
On Friday March 8th George Allen was a speaker on a panel at the National Autistic Society Professionals conference at the ICC in Birmingham.
A year ago, he created a film with a group of autistic students to explain the experience of autism to teachers, in particular. The film has won an award at a New York film festival and is being shown in schools and workshops nationally. The auditorium was massive but George did a great job of answering the questions put to him.
Well done George! We are very proud of you!
Rainbow Class and Orange Class walked, wheeled and ran a mile for Comic Relief. They raised a lot of money! Mrs Marshall joined in the fun too!
On the 11th February, thirteen Year 9 students and four staff went on our annual visit to the Calvert Trust in the Lake District. On the Monday, after our ‘epic’ four hour journey up the M6 and a different country roads, we arrived, raring to go. Over the subsequent four days, our students took part in a wide range of activities, ranging from bush-craft, canoeing and swimming, high ropes and climbing. All our students showed a great enthusiasm and desire when undertaking different challenges and over-came their fears and anxieties.
Our students were an absolute credit to the school throughout the week, and received lots of positive comments from the different staff members. Also, I would like to give a massive thank you to Mrs Saunders, Miss Pinfield and Mrs Smith for their help and support throughout the week.
