Students enjoy a Science and Literature day

For our second drop down day this academic year, our Year 9 students spent the day in the Science department, carrying out a variety of experiments which included building circuits and exploring biological enzymes.

“It was great to see the students applying the knowledge that they have learned practically.  Conducting experiments also allows the students to develop other important skills such as teamwork and time management.” said Dr Nolte, Second in Science

Our Year 10 students took part in a special GCSE Focus Day, specialising in English Literature.

They watched performances of Macbeth, Dr Jekyll and Hyde along with An Inspector Calls from the fantastic Globe Players. In between performances students discussed the texts with their English teachers.

Mr Ali, Assistant Headteacher for Raising Standards, said, “Students gathering an understanding of key GCSE texts is vital. Watching a performance not only allows for this but provides our students with a different and out of class learning experience too.”

“Seeing the students so engaged in an alternative way of accessing the texts was fantastic - the students gave positive feedback and enjoyed the 'theatre' experience.", added Miss Costar, English Teacher.

This was a great day for students and we look forward to running some more activities next year.
