Students from Castle School and Duke’s Secondary School came together for a special evening to celebrate their achievements and hard work over the last year.
We love celebrating the success of our students and we love it even more when they want to come back to school to celebrate after they’ve left! The Awards Evening was a great opportunity to catch up with 2018 Year 11 and Year 14 leavers and their families and celebrate their achievements when they were presented with their accreditation certificates by the Duke of Northumberland.
We are so proud of all our leavers and the progress they are making in their new settings.
Supporting Children in Need 2018
Our children in primary had a fun filled day supporting Children in Need. The children came to school in some very colourful outfits. Jo’s class had a Pudsey party and made some cakes. Vicky’s class decorated Pudsey and had a day of activities around the colour yellow. We all came together in the afternoon and played spot Pudsey in our Assembly.
Following the success of last year’s Pudsey Face Coin Challenge, this year, Secondary students attempted to cover the WHOLE of Pudsey with coins! After Pudsey’s body was covered there were even coins to spare.
Great team work everyone and thank you for your donations to support Children in Need charities, we managed to raise a whopping £371.83
“What are you going to do when you leave school?”
That’s a question that is always asked of young people and it’s rarely an easy answer for students or for parents, however, after a visit to a Career’s Event at Woodhorn our school leavers left armed with brochures and leaflets informing them of the next steps that are available in our area. Helpful and engaging business owners and college representatives along with a motivational talk by Paralympian Steve Miller who told the students they should work hard and not let anything hold them back from their dreams left the students excited about their future pathways.
Thank you to the Archbishop of York for visiting on 7th September and officially naming Bishop’s, Duke’s and Castle Schools
