C27 Fieldwork on Thursday 8th September

As part of their immersion, C27 are going on fieldwork to Sheffield to visit Park Hill and the School of Architecture at the University of Sheffield.

We will be departing at around 9:15AM and returning for approximately 4PM. Students should arrive at the usual time in the morning but please note the later finishing time. We will keep you updated on the day about a more accurate time for our return. Students will need to bring a packed lunch unless they access free school meals, in which case school will provide one for them. Students will need to dress appropriately and in a waterproof coat and warm layers, as we will be walking around Sheffield at points of the day. If you have any questions about the day, feel free to contact me at [email protected]

X28 Fieldwork to Potteric Carr

On Wednesday the 13th of July, XP year 7 students will be going on fieldwork to the nature reserve Potteric Carr in Doncaster. This will take place within school hours; students need to be on time for crew to register as normal and they will be back for a debrief during session 5.

Students will be lead by an expert lead into the different species’ habitats that exist in Potteric Carr. We will have the opportunity to explore these habitats, and see the species we have been researching in person. We will study how these species have adapted to suit their environment, this will be followed with lots of time for questions. We should finish our morning with a guided meditation session before we head back on the bus to debrief our day.

As we have been studying about animal habitats during our current expedition this is a great opportunity for X28. I have attached a kit list here to help students prepare for the day and weather. Any questions please contact myself or your child’s crew leader.

C28 (Year 7) fieldwork to the University of Sheffield – Tuesday 14th December

Students in C28/Year 7 will be visiting the University of Sheffield on Tuesday 14th December as part of their current expedition ‘’Food Glorious Food’. The primary purpose of the visit is to work with Dr Megan Blake and her International Development postgraduate students to look into how we might go about improving food distribution and waste. Whilst at the university, students will also be able to meet with student ambassadors and have a tour of the campus to give them a sense of what uni life is like!

We will be departing at around 9:15AM and returning for approximately 15:50PM so there will be a slight change in finish times of the school day for students. Students will need to bring a packed lunch unless they access free school meals, in which case school will provide one for them. Students will need to dress appropriately and in a waterproof coat and warm layers, as we will be walking around the campus at parts. If you have any questions about the day, feel free to contact me at [email protected]

Best wishes,
