Students from Stainburn School, Southfield Technology College and Workington Sixth Form have been packing shoe boxes for a really worthwhile cause in the last two weeks.
As you will be aware, Ofsted inspectors made a monitoring visit to the school just before half term. We have received the report from the inspection team and I am writing to share the findings with you, and to update you on our progress.
We are organising tours at both Stainburn and Southfield schools where you will have the opportunity to see us in action during the school day. Come along and learn more about our exciting new developments as we prepare to join together as an academy from September 2015.
Last week, year 11 students from Stainburn School and Southfield Technology College had the pleasure of listening to the inspirational words of the BBC’s technology journalist, Kate Russell. Having met Kate at the ICT conference in Disneyland Paris the ICT department invited her to deliver a talk to the year 11’s, with the aim to give them a flavour of what is available in the world of ICT.
Welcoming everyone back to school after the holidays has been a very special occasion and I am delighted also to give a warm welcome to our new Year 7 students. I am certain that their time with us will be as productive, exciting and engaging as it is for all of our students.
