During the summer holidays a handful of staff volunteered to run an exciting trip for 38 students where they travelled to Leeds City Centre on the train – a new experience for some.
Students were given maps and contact numbers and were then given 3 hours to explore the bustling city with all of its shops and restaurants.
Each student was given money to buy their own dinner in a restaurant of their choice which proved to be the most difficult decision of the day!
The aim of the trip was to develop the confidence of students and expand their experiences.
Feedback from both students and their parents/carers was excellent.
“I think it’s been fantastic, as a parent I have been fully informed of Faiths whereabouts all day. The communication about what was going to happen during the day has been brilliant. Even your wake up text set the day up on a cheery note. Thank you for offering Faith the opportunity to be part of this trip, she has had a great day. And thank you for taking the positive risk with the students.”

Our annual Sports Presentation Evening took place in Wentworth Hall last night where our PE department celebrated the sporting achievements of all our talented students.
The evening was very successful with 250 parents and students coming along to help congratulate our winners.
Numerous activities and sports were recognised over the course of the presentation where pupils received medals and certificates for their efforts throughout the year.
The awards were given for achievements and recent successes in, Football, Netball, Basketball, Athletics, Cricket, Rounders, Handball, Dance, Trampolining, Climbing, Tennis and Duke of Edinburgh.
Our PE department are delighted with the response from our students with the introduction of new sports such as Handball, Basketball, Rugby, Dance Academy, Martial Arts and Climbing.
These sports and activities have allowed much more students to access different sports and have proven to appeal to students that may not have played traditional sports.
The Sports Personality was won by Bradley Smith in Year 10 for his outstanding accomplishments in Tennis.
Bradley has won the Rotherham School Championship in Tennis and is the European under-15 Champion!
Congratulations to everyone who received an award – we would like to wish you continued triumph in your chosen sporting category, and we very much hope to see you holding an award next year.
