Year 7 hit the gym with Steve and Natasha from Unique Fitness in Howdon. Students had an amazing time and were thoroughly put through their paces.
Some of our Year 9 students have been working with Newcastle United Football Club over the last term on a skills and careers based project.
The sessions culminated today with a tour of St James Park and awards ceremony where Katie Quinn was presented with a special award for engagement and contribution.
Creative Writing Programme – Churchill Community College – Year 7
What a journey we have been on during our creative writing programme here at Churchill Community College! The Year 7 pupils have delighted me with their energy, hard work and creativity. It is such a joy to spend time with these youngsters. I have the honour of stepping away from my regular day job as a professional writer to provide an opportunity for pupils to improve their writing skills, while also giving them space for creative growth. I explore key themes with pupils, such as identity, community, conflict, local landscapes and heritage as well as facilitating thought-provoking debates. We have had numerous ‘star pupils’ and ‘star tables’ and I cannot praise these youngsters enough for their commitment and enthusiasm. Thank you for inviting me in to work with you. You are all superstars! Cannot wait to see your own poems published in our class anthology!
Thank you for supporting your child in continuing their Post-16 education at Churchill Community College. In preparation for September we are hosting Induction Days starting at 8.55am on Tuesday 25th June until 3.15pm on Thursday 27th June 2019. The aim is to allow students to engage with sixth-form and experience life as a sixth-form student. Lessons have been prepared by staff which students will attend whilst also starting their independent study. We have tried to build in as many experiences during these days to enable a smooth start in September but we will go over some of the administrative aspects at a later date too.
Students are expected to attend between 8.55am and 3.15pm on each day, apart from the Tuesday which finishes at 2.25pm. Students will be given their Induction Packs for each of their chosen subjects and these need to be completed by GCSE results day on Thursday 22nd August. This forms part of their enrolment into sixth-form and is crucial to success. Staff are available to help with any aspect of this both during induction days and after as well. All places in sixth-form are subject to students meeting the entry requirements which will be discussed on results day and successful completion of the Induction Packs.
If you have any questions regarding the Induction Days or Sixth-Form provision please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
