A Heart for Hannah

5 years ago today the school lost one of its ex pupils when Hannah Meakin tragically passed away after suffering a bacterial heart infection. The family kindly donated money to the school which we used to purchase our new sound system as Hannah loved the school shows.

Her brother Tom is doing a skydive today in her memory.Good luck Tom! Let's help him reach his £1000 target. The link is below.

Gary Wilson - Parents workshop

It was wonderful to see so many parents turn up to our first Federation workshop for parents led by the brilliant Gary Wilson.

60 parents from Kilburn and Smalley enjoyed a fantastic, thought provoking session on how boys learn.

The feedback was excellent and there was such a buzz in the room.

It is great to see a real benefit of the Federation after just 4 weeks as all our staff and now 60 parents have received first class training which we otherwise would have struggled to afford as single schools.

We look forward to organising another evening like this in the near future.

Gary Wilson Training

The staff from our Federation received first class training from National Speaker Gary Wilson on Fridays inset day. He spoke around a range of strategies that were particularly useful to engage boys with their learning but of course was useful for girls too. The day was thought provoking, entertaining and gave staff lots of useful tips and ideas that they can take back to the classroom.

We also welcomed a number of colleagues who joined us from other schools as well as two of our school governors.

Parents from the federation have been invited to a workshop tonight at 7:00pm. By working together as a federation one of the advantages has been that we can afford high quality training and provide workshops for parents such as the one this evening.

I look forward to seeing you there.
