Post 16 welcomed Mike and Oscar from Mike Poole Decorating Services into school. We had a fantastic morning learning about how to be a painter and decorator, training requirements, qualifications and tools of the trade. The students were also able to be involved with a practical session where they used brushes, rollers and lining paper to develop their own decorating skills.
Lower Post 16 have just completed their enterprise project which this year was to make Halloween treat bags in a Covid safe environment. The students researched different festivals and occasions then chose to focus on Halloween. They looked at what merchandise was available and what would be safe to produce. They then advertised their product with posters around school and via email, took orders, packed and finally delivered their product. In total they raised over £50 which will be donated to a local charity.

Upper Post 16 students have taken their enterprise project into the community. The class decided to use their home grown tomatoes to make a tomato chutney. Students have worked incredibly hard to plan, prepare and produce a delicious Tomato chutney, including a chilli chutney too!
Thank you to everyone for supporting us!
