Year 1 Toy Museum

Year 1 organised their own toy museum and invited Reception pupils to come and see the amazing toys they'd created.

Pupils spoke about the different types of materials they'd used and how much fun they'd had creating their toys. Well done Year 1!

Battlefields Tour

57 pupils in Years 9-11 took part in a Battlefields tour of France and Belgium, as part of their topic on the History of Medicine on the Western Front.
This was a really unique and inspiring experience for pupils, where they had the opportunity to visit the trenches, casualty clearing stations and even laid a wreath to show their respects from Carr Manor Community School.

“My favourite destination was Thiepval Memorial, in France. I felt very peaceful and proud when I walked up the large, white, stone steps. Another significant memory for me was the amount of names inscribed on the walls; there are exactly 72,194 officers and men of the United Kingdom and South Africa written on the walls” said Jude O’Dwyer, Year 10.

Casey Wood, Year 10, also enjoyed the trip for a more personal reason. “On the Battlefields trip, I had the privilege to see the grave of my Great Uncle. This experience meant a lot to me and I would like to thank the teachers who provided me with this opportunity of a lifetime.”

Careers Fair

On Thursday 31st January, we welcomed over 20 businesses into Carr Manor Community School for our annual careers fair. On the day, over 800 of our pupils attended the fair and spoke to a variety of organisations from the Army to hairdressing and the Police to filmmaking.

It was a very informative and useful day for pupils, and a representative from Ahead Partnership said the businesses were here to “inspire and engage” pupils at Carr Manor Community School, and help them “think about their future careers, skillsets and they can get into the different career routes they’re interested in.”
