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 university Residential
Ms Megaw: This year’s university residential for sixth formers was at the established Russell Group University of Nottingham. Fifty sixth formers attended the two days of lectures, campus tours and UCAS support, including staying overnight in residential halls and eating in the student areas.
Students were able to experience how it felt to be at university, attending an engaging morning lecture on the philosophical debate of whether it was right to eat meat. In true student life fashion, the trip also included games on the field, with an especially memorable and hard fought rounders match, and a trip to the local bowling arcade, where students pitched their metal against the bowling sensation that is Mr Jennings.
The sixth formers showed both maturity and great positive attitudes to really gain the most out of the experience. It was a fantastic end to the summer term.
