In addition, Fyling Hall’s Deputy Head, Dr Richardson, explains how we are awarding GCSEs and A Levels this year.
After School Clubs & Competitions
To bring a distraction to the pupils’ week we are running a selection of after school activities and competitions. These will provide a different focus and experience whilst at home, as well as some fun. This week we start with our Art Studio‘s Art Leaders’ Lockdown Club Creative, Mr Thomas’ Latin Club and Frau Trotter’s Duolingo German Competition.
Lockdown Club Creative
Fyling Hall’s Art Leaders have thrown down the art gauntlet. Looking for a creative challenge? Join the Lockdown Club Creative and try one of their challenges.
Taking on a new and revised format to counter these unusual circumstances in which we find ourselves, Fyling Hall Latin Club will reconvene during Tuesday’s Twilight Session. So whether an old Fyling Hall Latin scholar or someone completely new to the whole thing, email Mr Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest – this is open to all students at the school, young and old, junior school and senior school.
