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. 

Year 8 Geography and the Continent of Contrast

Ms Cartlidge: 8B have been learning about Africa, the continent of contrast. This week we have been looking at the media’s perception of Africa and whether the stats back that perception up. Students were asked to investigate two contrasting African countries and their levels of development. We were also looking at where the theory of knowledge comes from – an International Baccalaureate principal that encourages you to question how you know what you know!

Special thanks to Jaheim Robinson and his grandmother, Betty, who both gave very interesting talks to 8B.
