Revision Hub

Pupils are encouraged to access the Revision Hub on Monday’s, Thursday’s and Friday’s in room 22 and 23. They can use this facility before school from 8am and at the end of the school day until 4pm.

The Revision Hub is an area of school where pupils have access to computers, revision materials and a rotation of subject specific staff. A quiet, calm space in which they can focus and complete revision and specific tasks to achieve their maximum potential.

Pupils will be rewarded for attending with rewards that have value and meaning to them.

National Apprenticeship Week

The Inspirational Learning Group are delighted to be working together with Higher Horizons to promote National Apprenticeship Week 2021 

Between February 8th – 14th we will be bringing the whole apprenticeship community together to celebrate the impact of apprenticeships on individuals, employers, and the economy. Across the week you and your students will have the opportunity to hear from employers, previous apprentices, and current apprentices regarding their first-hand experiences. 

 

We’re delighted to have secured speakers from the likes of PricewaterhouseCoopersPM TrainingSiemens and Perkins, who will be able to provide a detailed insight into the apprenticeship journey and how they can support the development of young people. 

Across the week there will be on average 3 live sessions per day which will cover a range of topics such as employment prospects, how to secure an apprenticeship, and the impacts that apprentices make to the industry.  More information about each session will be released early in the new year.
