On Friday XP and XP East students welcomed Alun and his team from Balby Church. it was inspiring to hear about the work they do. Alun also revealed our guiding question for this expedition: Why do we still need charity?
Just as a reminder that the C22 POL will be on Wednesday 4th July for Skipper and Thursday 5th July for Admiral, commencing at 6pm in XP East.
Before the performance, students will be expected to stay for a full dress rehearsal from 3.30pm. Please ensure students are provided with a packed lunch with this in mind, as students will not have time to leave school.
Also, each student needs to be dressed in full black clothing for the performance.
We would really appreciate if you could continue to help your son/daughter learn their lines as the performance draws nearer.
Thanks for your continued support. Looking forward to seeing you there!
I’m delighted to announce that the C22 POL performance of An Inspector Calls will be on Wednesday the 4th July for SKIPPER and Thursday the 5th July for ADMIRAL, from 6pm.
We’d really appreciate if you could help your child to learn his/her lines from their scripts in the meantime. The sooner students learn these the better the performances will be!
Thanks, as always, for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you all there!
For Extended Study C22 must revise the final history unit, Crime and Punishment 1900-2000, before Thursday of this week. They should text-code the information and answer the questions. If you could help with quizzing your child on the questions this would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your continued support,

Last week, as part of the C21 expedition ‘I’m free to do what I want’ , students displayed their artwork and commentaries at Doncaster Art Gallery.
The exhibition is set to run throughout the holidays until Friday 8th September. so please go along to see this great work!
Here’s just a sneak peak of some of their work….
On Friday, in year 9, we hosted an expert from Doncaster museum talking to us about crime and punishment in the medieval period, linking to our current humanities expedition ‘I fought the law and the law won!’ Year 9 had the opportunity to handle and observe artefacts, alongside dressing-up in medieval clothing!
Here’s just a few pictures…
Y9 fieldwork for both Admiral and Skipper will be taking place on Monday 6th March, the first day back after the half-term holidays.
We will be leaving school after crew at around 9.30 and we should arrive back at school before the end of the school day.
All students must bring a packed lunch, warm outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear.
Student should re-read the chapters handed to them in class which include the artilleryman (Book 1 Chapter 11 and Book 2 Chapter 7) and must examine how the artilleryman changes.
