Project Business provides a dynamic experience for Year 10 students as they take on the role of a small business for the day. In addition to gaining an insight into enterprise, pupils are given an introduction to GCSE Business Studies, prior to making their subject choices. The pupils explored a range of key business concepts through a variety of practical group-based activities,such as setting up their own bead making business. The pupils had to buy materials from their suppliers and create beaded bracelets to sell to customers. The pupils also learnt about health and safety in the work place and quality control.
We were delighted to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to officially open our fantastic new school.
Congratulations to Michael, Tegan and Emma who have successfully progressed to the regional final of the Knights of Columbanus public speaking competition. The trio maturely tackled the topic of the death penalty and perceptively answered an unseen question from the adjudicators.
All Yr10 pupils attended a ‘Choosing Science’ event on Wednesday 16 January. Pupils were engaged through workshops with a wide range of science ambassadors from the local community who presented their experiences to the pupils, ensuring pupils are more informed as they move forward with subject and career choices this year.
