Leeds Compassionate City Award Winner

A big thank you to all pupils and staff who donated money before Christmas to help those less fortunate.

The money has gone to help Leeds Compassionate City award winner Maureen Lilywhite provide Christmas hampers for disadvantaged families in the local area.

Coaching groups also brought in food and other goodies for our 'Reverse Advent Calendar' House competition.

Pupils were asked to donate items to give to those in need over the Christmas period. The boxes were given to Stainbeck Church an Family Solutions, who help people in our local community by sharing out donations, which made a huge difference to some people over the holidays.

Pupils decorated their boxes and it was lovely to see how much thought and effort went into the Reverse Advent Calendars.


Christmas Showcase

Our Christmas Showcase was on Monday 11th December and those who attended were treated to some fantastic dances, performances and music.

We were wowed by the fabulous music from the percussion group, vocal group, Year 8, 9 and 11 bands and Close Harmony. There were some brilliant performances from the KS3 and KS4 drama groups, and we danced the night away with the Year 9 Re:Form group.

The night ended with a really heartwarming duet from the Year 11 band, choir and the percussion group with a beautiful rendition of 'Happy Xmas (War Is Over).'

Well done to everyone involved for making it a very special evening for the audience!

Pupils Show Off Talents At Christmas Showcase

A big well done to all pupils who were involved in the Christmas Showcase on Tuesday 13th December. There was an excellent display of talent, from singers to dancers to acting. The performances were outstanding and it was lovely to see so many parents/carers and fellow pupils supporting the event.

There was a real sense of community as pupils and staff came together to get into the Christmas spirit.

After the show, parents commented that the evening ‘was amazing’ and that ‘pupils did themselves and the school proud.’ They thought the ending ‘was very emotional’ and a brilliant way to end the year.

Thank you to everyone involved in the showcase or those who came along to show support.
