Lots of effort was put in by both staff and students, with the Year 9 health and social care group helping to organise and run the event. Food technology students also helped, baking lots of lovely treats. Winners of the cake competition were Amelia Wailes from KS3, Daisy Pickard from KS4 and Mrs Caulfield from the staff.ï»¿ï»¿
Year 7 created over 20 festive hampers to be delivered into the local community. Governors, Ken Dodd and Tracey Newby, came into school on Friday and had a very challenging job in hand to select the best hamper.ï»¿
Y7, Y8 and Y9 enjoyed their Carol Service at St Mary’s church in Staindrop. The service followed a traditional format and it was a lovely occasion. Reverend Steventon was very impressed with the exemplary behaviour of our students and the performers for their singing. ï»¿
