Sports Awards Evening

At Carr Manor Community School, we honoured pupils' sporting achievements at our most recent Sports Awards Evening on Wednesday 28th September.

The awards welcomed Paul Broadbent, ex-England and Great Britain rugby league player, as the guest speaker. Two ex Carr Manor pupils also attended; Jack Dyche, Scunthorpe United Midfielder, and Matty Lee, European Games 10m Platform Champion.

Pupils were treated to entertainment in the Sports Hall and a celebratory meal before the awards were presented.

Those who attended sporty Flexible Learning sessions or who were part of a sports team in the last academic year, were invited to celebrate their character, achievement and enthusiasm in sport.

Kayla Brimble and Jose Borja were both awarded with the prestigious 'Sports Persons Of The Year' award, which was voted for by fellow pupils.

Rudding Park Partnership

Our Year 9 School of Industry have recently formed a partnership with Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate.

The Managing Director, Peter Banks, came into Carr Manor Community School to deliver the business brief, which will see pupils planning their very own pop-up restaurant.

To help inspire them, pupils visited Rudding Park Hotel where they were given a tour of the gardens and shown how to create skittle ice-cream using liquid nitrogen.

Pupils showed real enthusiasm on the trip and asked some brilliant questions which will help them with their pop-up restaurant briefs.

Pupils Visit Auschwitz

Sixteen of our Key Stage 4 pupils recently went on an educational trip to Poland. During their time there, they visited the Nazi concentration camp ‘Auschwitz-Birkenau’ where over 1 million people died during World War 2.

All of the pupils involved gained valuable historical lessons, whilst also exploring World War 2 and the concentration camp from a religious and sociological perspective.

The Holocaust Study Tours group commented that our pupils were 'bright' and 'demonstrated critical thinking skills beyond their years' during their visit to Auschwitz.

Pupils found the visit to be 'a life changing experience' and said that it taught them there is 'a great deal that we can learn from our past.'
