Duke of Edinburgh Award Season 2017/2018
On Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st January our 63 year 10 Bronze students headed out on their 8.75km training day walk in extreme conditions of rain, sleet, snow, cold and lots and lots of mud! They performed their tasks to a very high standard under these conditions.
All of the students turned up to the event with all of the right equipment for the conditions with a determination to complete their training.
Well done to them all,
Careers Information Evening at Rushcliffe
On 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!
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.
