Secondary School Entrance Changes
From Monday 14th January our entrance on Wood Lane will be open to students only until 8:55am. Students will also leave via this entrance as usual at the end of the school day. Any students arriving after 8.55am will have to enter via the Du Cane Road entrance and register at the all-through reception, which is located in the Primary. They will then be escorted to their lessons.
All visitors, parents and guests will arrive and leave via the Du Cane Raod entrance, at all times and also check in to the all-through reception.
The all-through reception is reached by following the pavement around to the left and entering the primary building.
Sixth Form Business Trip: Sleep Pods
Year 12 business studies students visited Podtime.co.uk’s headquarters last week to speak to entrepreneur Jon Gray and look at the manufacturing of his sleep pods.
Jon spoke to the class about how he planned and financed the business and went on to talk about some of the issues involved in managing the business once it was up and running.
The talk covered several business topics the class is studying at the moment, including market research, sources of finance and business plans. Finally, the group got to sample his product, enjoying a well-deserved nap in one of the pods.
Adam K said: “It was excellent to see how the topics we have learnt about can be applied in the real world.”
