As part of year 10 Art pupils studies into the formal elements of Art, we went to view a range of sculptures linked to the element of ‘Shape’. Some of the sculptures were on the Quayside and made of traditional materials such as metal and stone, whereas their favourite called ‘Play Rebellion’ was a foam shaped interactive exhibit which encouraged creativity through play and building with super sized blocks.
Just a reminder to come along to the Christmas Fayre tomorrow. Doors open at 1.30 and it would be great to see as many of you as possible. There will be numerous stalls open and there will be lots of products available to buy made by our students as well as stalls ran by the PTA. If anyone could donate cakes or biscuits for the stall that would be great as well.
Thank you and see you tomorrow(hopefully)

We hope you like the finished look of the tree, as we certainly do.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Primary children had a fantastic time celebrating the end of their topic with a WOW day.
Parents and carers were invited to join the fun as the children took part in an African drumming session.
Not only did everyone learn new skills they also had great fun too!
A huge “Thank you!” to all of the parents and carers who came to school, your support is much appreciated.

The children in Primary had an exciting afternoon, where they performed their Christmas show to a packed audience.
They all looked the part and the singing was amazing.

The children shared how Christmas is celebrated around the world through words and songs.
Everyone has worked really hard over recent weeks to perfect their lines and learn lots of songs.
A huge “Thank you!” goes to Mrs Levee who orchestrated the whole show.
Today year 11 students visited New College Durham to hear a presentation from Project Choice about supported internships within the NHS. Some Year 11 students went on to Newcastle College for a tour of the campus and sixth form centre. Here students had a chance to speak with the teachers and support as well as looking facilities.
My favourite film is Sully because it can teach you that if you do become a pilot or any job you do, you can be right. If somebody says you have done wrong and you have done right and it puts you down, don’t let it, you have done your best and that is all that matters. YOU TRIED…
