As the end of year 6 approaches we had the pleasure of welcoming our new year 7 students who will be joining us at Durham Federation in September.

Durham Federation works in close partnership with our feeder primary schools and we have visited each class and met with Primary headteachers, class teachers and SEND Leads in order to get to know each child before they arrive.

During both days students took part in learning and team building activities and work on our key areas of ‘Confidence, Ambition and Respect’.

Students completed a range of exciting activities such as their Bunsen Burner licenses, a master class in French and a charity colour run, raising funds along side year 7 students for local charity “The Rainbow Trust”.

Congratulations to all students who took part for their outstanding attitudes to learning and high expectations throughout all activities.

Sports Hall Athletics

Well done to each of the year 7 and 8 students who competed in the Level 3 School Games Sportshall Athletics Final this morning. Everyone gave it their absolute best and should be proud of their efforts.

Y7 Visit Durham University 01/03/2019

Our y7 students where given the chance to visit Durham University for a powering transformation day. The students got to have a mini lecture with an AI and also use the latest Dell Computer equipment to come up with a product to solve a social issue in a dragons den style challenge.


Year 11 Trip

The whole of Year 11 were taken to see a production of A Christmas Carol by the English department. It was an amazing show and we really enjoyed it. There was music, laughter, sadness and some amazing puppetry skills. The Northern Stage’s performance was fantastic and it will really help us with our GCSEs. It’s helped us understand character, theme and plot development in a much more in-depth way.

We would like to thank the English department for taking us on the trip and we are looking forward to our next one.
