Virtual Assembly

Designed to replicate what we do at the start of every week in school, our virtual assembly features a special guest interview every week with a key message for our students, staff and parents.

In episode 12, this week, tackles a grand theme for us all. Terry and Mr Instone confront the possibility that reality might not be what it seems. With the help of their special guest explore issues around the meaning and purpose of life, hinting at issues of self esteem and mental health. Their guest is BBC award winning comedian, Silky, who has also run a national chain of comedy clubs as well as delivering corporate training in improvisation and speaking skills.

After School Clubs & Competitions

To bring a distraction to the pupils’ week we have run a selection of after school activities and competitions. These provide a different focus and experience whilst at home, as well as some fun.

Our Art Studio‘s third edition of Art Leaders’ Lockdown Club Creative is out!
