X25 Get To Work!

X25 completed their work experience last week and it has been great to have a check in to see what they have all been doing. I think some members of year 11 really got an insight into the type of job they might want to go into within the next few years and also the working life. It was fantastic to hear such great feedback from their work experience employers who commented on how hard students were working, how they would offer them a job and how punctual they were to start the day!

X25 are now back on it- focussed ready for their Mock exams that are due to start in a couple of weeks.

Great work year 11 – keep it up!

C25 Mock Exams

We’re looking forward to welcoming Y11 back from their work experience week and will be cracking straight on with our mock exam preparation!

Y11 will sit mock exams from 29th November until 14th December, as detailed in the timetable above.

Revision sessions will continue to run during lunchtime and after school and attendance at these is very much encouraged. We will also run a D6 session on Saturday 3rd December for those students who would like to get together in study groups, or just need a quiet space to revise.

As we move closer to final exams, we will be inviting our C25 parents/carers to a GCSE information evening in the next year – an email will be sent out with details soon.

Crew Stan Lee Pledges

This morning, Crew Stan Lee have been doing some excellent work on their Crew pledges.

Crew pledges are a promise you make to perform an action such as getting to Crew on time or pledging to help other students. The rest of Crew hold these pledges to account and challenge Crewmates who do not follow the pledges they make and ensure they follow them to the best of their ability. Students who follow their pledges are often noticed and praised by their peers as well as their Crew Leader.

This crew blog has been written by James one of our crew members.
Well done James.

Careers Fair

https://www.doncaster-chamber.co.uk/opportunities-doncaster/doncaster-careers-week/opportunities-doncaster-live-exhibitors2022/

As part of National Careers Week, Year 10 and XP16 have a fantastic opportunity on Thursday 10th March to attend Doncaster Racecourse, who are hosting a Careers Fair with stalls from a variety of industries and Post 16 education providers and universities. The students will be leaving school for the afternoon and will be back in time for the end of the day. This will introduce them to the opportunities available in Doncaster as they prepare for their GCSEs next year and their next steps in their academic journey.

War landscapes in the style of Van Gogh

Y10 (X25/E25) have been looking at war landscapes for their expedition this term with the guiding question “are we really free to choose?”

This task fell in time perfectly for remembrance day (11/11/21) where the students finished off their Van Gogh samples.

I’m incredibly proud of their work and their efforts with this technique. Well done year 10!!!
