School year ends with first Inspiration Week
We held our first Inspiration Week during the last week of term which finished the school year in an exciting, inspirational and engaging way.
Between Monday 17th and Friday 21st July students went off curriculum and took part in a wide range of activities both inside and outside of school. As well as trips to the sand sculptures in Weston-super-Mare, RAF Cosford and Stratford to visit three historic houses, students also tested their bravery at Vertical Limits in Worcester, enjoyed a poignant residential trip to Poland and completed a day long walk on the Malvern Hills to support the Year 7 Geography curriculum.
Additionally, in school a range of inspirational lessons were delivered which ranged from producing paper chains using different production methods in Business Studies, to building straw bridges in Science and taking part in a full mask performance in Dance.
The week and school year came to a close with our annual school fete where students created a mix of stalls for staff, parents, carers and their peers to enjoy. These included a coconut shy, chocolate fountain and wheelchair racing.
Mark Pollard, Headteacher, commented, "Our Inspiration Week allowed students to be actively involved in a wide number of engaging activities so they could learn in an exciting and alternative way.
"The fete was a true celebration of the school and a time for the students and staff to come together to celebrate their successes over the past year. It was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone and we hope it's the first of many Inspiration Weeks to be held."
