Time Capsule Ceremony

Our time capsule was placed on the Sports Hall site on Tuesday 2 April by representatives from all of the Learning Communities: Nadya South (7EG), Tanya Gupta (8JP), Elvie Sunny (9VM), Kiera Broadbank (10AB), Lauren Parr (10NS), Lauren Hone (12KK) and Catherine Knight (13CS). Beardwell Construction have been working closely with the school on the Sports Hall project and the company provided the time capsule to mark this collaboration.  Since September, students have been creating items and records that depict their lives and activities at the school. Photographs and letters to future generations of students have been included. Deputy Headteacher, Douglas Hall, said, “It is hoped that the time capsule will remain hidden away until it is discovered in 20 or 30 years.”

The Sports Hall Image Gallery has been updated again with great photographs from our Year 13 photographer, David Hawkins. Do take a look at the latest images.
