Bude Trip 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,

My name is Mr Maclaren and I am the Outdoor Coordinator at Heartlands. This year Heartlands are offering your son/daughter an amazing opportunity to participate in a trip to Bude, which is an activity centre in Cornwall.

The Centre offers a huge variety of activities including surfing, climbing, abseiling, canoeing and many others activities. The trip will leave Heartlands on Monday 16th July and return on Thursday evening of 19th 2018. Spaces are limited and to be put on the shortlist, students must collect a letter from me.

The cost of the trip is £300 per pupil (£200 for pupils who are Pupil Premium) and will cover accommodation, coach travel, three meals per day, all activities and specialist instructors and equipment. It also includes evening entertainment such as campfires, BBQ’s and on the last day a disco. To help with the cost of the trip a payment plan is available which is shown in the letter below.

2017 Results

We are delighted with a fantastic set of GCSE results this year. Students have worked incredibly hard to achieve some very impressive outcomes which represent great progress. We are especially pleased that 9 students were awarded the new top grade in English Literature and 3 students in Maths; this new grade 9, designed to sit above the traditional A* standard places them in the top 3% of students nationally. .

We wish the 2017 cohort all the best in the next stage of their education and congratulate them on their outstanding achievement.

I would like to thank our incredible staff who worked tirelessly to support students to achieve these results.

Elen Roberts

Collaborative Art Project to be exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery

DSC_0260 copy

We have now hosted two art workshops with artist Sadie Edgington, working with our talented Year 8 students as part of the Start project, sponsored by the Jack Petchey Foundation, Children and the Arts charity, and the Saatchi Gallery. The students were fantastic, working together to create sculptural pieces representing the theme of ‘Inclusion’ and then creating stop-motion animations featuring these artworks. Sadie and Roz Logan, visiting from the Saatchi Gallery, were so impressed by the students’ ability to think creatively, embrace challenges with an open mind, and work collaboratively. The project has served as a great reminder of how art can be used to empower young people to explore important themes and ideas. The animations they have created will be shown at an exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in July. We can’t wait!
