X22 – Identity

X22 are working on their coursework for Art, Craft and Design; through the expedition ‘Identity’. Here are some pieces of work that reflect our ‘Habits of Work and Learning’:Getting Smart and Working Hard! The craftsmanship and quality of the work is really developing. Well done and keep up the beautiful work!

Students have also independently researched what ‘identity’ means to them and looked at artists work to influence their ideas. This is evident in the unique work they are producing.

X22 Admiral invited parents into school earlier this evening to talk to them about how they are revising for their upcoming mock examinations, the targets they have set themselves and the progress that they expect to make.

I was particularly impressed with the honesty and integrity of students as they shared what they had done well and what they needed to do more of in future to ensure they succeed.

Students covered their progress in English, Maths, Science, History and Spanish. Mature and intelligent discussions that reflect how hard these young people are working and how smart they are getting as a result!

I was well impressed! Keep this up, Admiral!!

X22 POL this week!!

The X22 Presentation of learning will take place on the following evenings :-

Wednesday 5th June for Admiral 5pm-6pm

Thursday 6th June for Skipper 5pm-6pm

The evening will be a focus on students preparation and revision for the upcoming Year 10 exams on the WC 17th June, and will be in a carousel format between five subjects






With the Students answering the guiding question of

“How do I lead my own Learning?”

Best wishes and Thank you for your continued support

X22 Application and Practice

As we are now coming to the end of our expedition ‘Are we really free to choose?‘ students have once again being applying their knowledge and practising answering exam questions. It’s been really pleasing to see so many students Working Hard and Getting Smart when attempting source and interpretation questions. Students have really risen to the challenge with these tricky questions! Here are just a few examples of their hard work from this week.

Students in X22 have been working hard during the course of this term on an expedition that explores the value of freedom and how this can be easily compromised by extremism and hate. Students have studied the rise to power of Hitler and how he consolidated his grip on Germany in the 1930s and 40s through creating a culture of fear, blind nationalism and the use of propaganda.

Alongside their historical studies, students have read and analysed the novel Animal Farm by George Orwell. The novel is an allegory of the events that led up to the Russian Revolution at the start of the nineteenth century and the subsequent rise to power of Stalin. The novel focuses on how power corrupts and how an ideal can be quickly destroyed by greed and inequality. There are obvious links between the case studies and students have been grappling with some very difficult and sophisticated concepts. Above is a picture of X22 Skipper working with grit and determination to complete a timed analysis of an extract from the novel – a key skill they will need for their English Literature GCSE. Look at the amount Marley, in the top right hand corner, has written in just fifteen minutes! The whole Year Group have been really focused and are determined to produce work of a high quality. Great work, X22!


Today X22 students had an excellent opportunity to attend Sheffield Hallam University. The day involved an introduction to university and a chance to experience what studying for three years would be like. Students found out about the pathways into university and had the chance to see the numerous different courses on offer. Becky and Renee, from HEPP, were really helpful and used their own knowledge and experience to help build students’ understanding. Thank you HEPP!
