Yorkshire Wildlife Park
During the October half term holidays a group of students visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster. Everyone had a great time getting up close to lemurs, squirrel monkeys, meerkats, giraffes, camels, wallabies, lions and tigers to name just a few! We were also incredibly lucky as we were able to observe Victor, England's only polar bear, swimming around in his lake and catching his lunch! As ever all our students were wonderfully behaved and really did themselves and their families proud.
School will finish at 12.25pm on Thursday 18 December 2014.
Students on free school meals are welcome to stay on site for their lunch.
Students return to school on Monday 5 January 2015.
Year 10 – 'Science is for everyone visit'
On 8 October 2014, ten of our Year 10 girls visited the University of Sheffield and attended an evening lecture on careers in science and engineering. They heard first hand from women working in these fields of the exciting opportunities available to them that they might not have heard about or considered. Sadly, even in 2014, women only make up 8% of the engineers we have nationally. Industries and universities believe that women may not realise that they have exactly the skills and qualities they need for a successful career in engineering. An informative evening was had by all. Well done to the students who attended.
Quote from a Year 10 student: 'I really enjoyed hearing from the woman working in neuroscience. I now want to know more about this area of science and am interested in studying it further.'
