CareersOn Thursday 25th January, the school's Careers team held a Careers Information Evening. The session was an opportunity for parents of year 9 students and KS4 parents to find out more about career opportunities and pathways available.

The evening also included an introduction to the new Careers Web online information and how to log on. You can find a copy of the handout here.

Thank you to everyone that came along.

Fun and Games at Epperstone Court!

20 Year 9 Rushcliffe students did us proud on Wednesday when they visited West Bridgford’s Epperstone Court Care Home for an afternoon of fun, games and friendly banter with the residents. Their behaviour was impeccable – polite, friendly and helpful – and they certainly lifted the spirits of all the residents, many of whom commented on how much they had enjoyed their afternoon. Whether it was darts, giant connect or more cerebral cribbage, it was a definite 10 out of 10 from everyone involved!

Parent Focus Group Meetings

As a school, we are always looking to broaden our lines of communication with parents and allow opportunities for them to express their view.  With that in mind, we are interested in holding regular focus group meetings with parents providing a discussion based opportunity for them to share their view on a specified topic.  The first meeting will focus on the well documented challenges and difficulties that young people face with today’s social media and how we can manage and support with this.

The meeting will take place on Wednesday 14th February from 4pm.  If you are interested in being part of this focus group meeting, please contact Naomi Batley in the PSU on 01159744050 ext 303 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
