Year 11 in to 12 Transition Work

We hope you have accessed and found some of the preparatory work Ms O’Neill, your future Year Leader, put together for you. We cannot stress enough the importance of super curricular engagement (work that is in addition to specifications, work that is pursued for personal interest and fulfilment). Students in our Sixth Form have a real desire for learning and that is what enables them to succeed and secure exceptional final outcomes on their courses.

Over the past weeks our teachers have been collating a range of focused material to help you prepare for your chosen course of study. The expectation is that you will engage with this work and complete the tasks for each of the three subjects you intend to study. Learning materials can be accessed via this link

Places and confirmed subject choices will be agreed on enrolment once all results are confirmed. There will be an opportunity for students to review their subject choices and request changes at that point (subject to availability). No subject changes will be made prior to this time. Students can access the work for all courses we offer, they can use the material to help them decide their final choices but should complete the work for the three subjects they intend to study. Any requests for subject changes must take into consideration our pool structure; students must select one subject from each of three of the four pools (i.e. not exceeding three subjects in total).

Carbon Capture Talk & Eco-Gardening

Georgia and Jason talking about climate change to their audience

Saturday 19 October, in follow up to the Local Democracy Week launch of The Three Rivers Climate Change Strategy, the PTFA and associated presented a Carbon Capture talk. Two of our Year 12 Environmental team Georgia  and Jason, and Year 10 members of the Eco-gardening team, Beth, Llia and Abigail, made brilliant presentations at the Carbon Capture talk in the ASC on Saturday morning where they talked about Climate change issues and our conference.

Our guests mainly came from Hexham and they were blown away by our students speaking out so confidently about the issues. The upshot is that the guests are going back to Hexham full of enthusiasm for moving things on there too.
Our speaker, Prof. David Manning from Newcastle Uni’s Soil Science Dept. is also now considering ways of helping to bring more students together from several schools to meet up at the Uni and consider climate change and how to mitigate this through carbon capture methods.
The message about turning pledges into individual and group actions to make things happen is travelling! Our first carbon capture bed with a 50/50 mix of compost and volcanic dust capturing CO2 and changing it into calcium carbonate so it’s trapped in the ground. It’s spring bulb planting time.

A Night of Monologues

We are delighted to invite you to attend an evening of stunning performances by our incredibly talented Drama Society. The society, led by Mrs Anderson, ably supported by Deputy Head Girl, Rosie will provide an evening of unrivalled entertainment. The evening will feature performances from Blood Brothers, Romeo and Juliet and many more. We are especially proud to present an monologue written by one of our very own students, Ollie.
