Mrs Oldfield wants to share with you a fantastic opportunity for all of our students aged 14 and over to enter a competition run by University College London. It is called 'Visions of a world after Covid-19'. They want you to reflect on how the world may be different after the Covid-19 crisis has passed. You can submit either a written article, a video or an image that expresses your vision.
We have now had the first of a series of Apprenticeships webinars we are hosting for our students in Years 11 to 13, with the help of the National Apprenticeships Service.
Wishing you all a Happy half-term from Mrs Fenner
Over the coming weeks, during June 2020, we will be exploring the exciting world of apprenticeships in a little more detail, and we are very pleased to be working with Aspire Learning who deliver the ASK programme of apprenticeship awareness and information.
