X24 have had a fantastic visit to the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool. We saw exhibits that helped us to put our studies of the slave trade and prejudice into context. It’s been a real pleasure watching our students working hard, getting smart and being kind to each other and the other visitors to the museum today.
On Thursday 29th November, C24 students will be going on fieldwork to The International Slavery Museum in Liverpool.
We will be setting off from XP School at 8am. Therefore, students MUST be at school in time to leave.
Students will need to bring a packed lunch to eat whilst we are at the Museum.
We expect to return to school for 3.30pm.
I would like to take this opportunity to apologise for not providing this information sooner. We have been waiting for the Museum to confirm arrangements which has taken much longer than expected.
It’s fantastic to see our X24 students working so hard during our first week back. Praise butterflies this week were awarded to Isaac, Vinnie, Aaisha, Chris, Jaggy, Courtney, Kyra, Bella, Charlotte, Milla, Charlie and Harpreet. Butterflies were awarded by staff and by students for consistent hard work, being kind, showing compassion and in one case – for being epic!
Well done everyone!

The Year 8 Presentation of Learning will take place on Tuesday 8th May for Skipper and Wednesday 9th May for students in Admiral. The evening will be held at The Point in Doncaster at 5.30pm. We have chosen The Point as it provides students the opportunity to perform their poetry to an authentic audience and in the home of Doncaster Community Arts. Students will need to be collected from the venue not from School at 6.30pm. Students are looking forward to sharing their hard work with you.
If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact School.

Students have been set Bearings 3 on Hegarty Maths for Extended Study.
This must be completed by 8.30 am on Thursday 26th April.
All students have been set two short tasks to complete on Hegarty Maths in preparation for sessions next week. The deadline is for completion by Wednesday 18th April.
We have decided to postpone C23’s fieldwork to Flamborough Head that was scheduled for this Friday 16th of March. The weather forecast predicts strong winds and heavy rain and having completed a risk assessment, we have decided that it would not be wise to continue with the trip.
We will instead reschedule the visit for Skipper to Tuesday 20th March. Please see our original post on fieldwork requirements for the day.
