X25 (Y11) Fieldwork – Doncaster Plant Works

As part of Y11’s History course, we have a wonderful opportunity to visit the site of Wabtec in Doncaster – which was formerly Doncaster Plant Works – a massive part of our heritage! One of the history GCSE papers Y11 will sit is based around this local site and we’re really privileged to be able to visit the birth place of both The Mallard and the record breaking Flying Scotsman – where students will gain a real insight into the site’s significance, both locally and nationally.

ALL of X25 will be attending on Tuesday 17th January 2023. Admiral’s fieldwork will take place in the morning, leaving XP at 9:15am and returning at around 11:30am. Admiral will be in sessions as normal in the afternoon.

Skipper’s fieldwork will take place in the afternoon – leaving XP at 1:30pm and returning back to XP for around 3:00pm. Skipper will be in sessions as normal in the morning.

Lunches should not be affected, but students may wish to bring a packed lunch. We have now secured a coach to take us to and from Wabtec.

If you have any questions/queries, please contact crew leaders, or the following:

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 (Y10) – WHAT A WEEK!

We had the pleasure of holding our Y10 Awesomeness community meeting this week – and what a week it’s been for Year 10!

It took us AGES to get through all of the appreciations, along with a bit of a ‘cultural reset’ focusing on apologies and stands this week, too. Some Y10s showed great courage and integrity!

Check out the masses of praise postcards below – a special shout out to this week’s crew superstars!

We’re proud of you, C26!

C25 Praises from Community Meeting

Awesomeness community meetings are ALWAYS our favourites! It’s so lovely to see staff appreciating students for their hard work during the week, and to hear students making appreciations, apologies and stands! We also heard some great pledges for moving into next term – such as aiming to increase Work Hard grades, aiming to improve getting smart grades with revision, and attending learning labs during lunchtime and after school.

Check out the magnificent amount of praise postcards for Y11 this week, in our final awesomeness community meeting of this half term! Kyle stole the show this week! Well done!

We’re super proud of you 🙂

Crew Kahlo putting the hours in at home

I wanted to show some pieces of work that Olivia, Jessy and Nida have been working on at home.

All three girls have really impressed me with their work ethic and are showing how they ‘Get Smart’.

Crew Blessed powering towards the end of this half term!

It’s been another productive and hard working week from Crew Blessed.

Several students used Crew time effectively to do some Science revision and support each other. Zach was offering out his wise words as Alana and Luke absorbed as much information as they could.

The praises from other sessions have been rolling in too this week with these being given just yesterday.

This is great work Crew, lets keep it going right up to half term – 1 more week! Well done!
