Sixth Form Languages Day

Some of our A Level Spanish students recently spent a day at Manchester Metropolitan University for a Sixth Form Languages Day. The day allowed our students to work with expert Manchester Met staff who led sessions during the day as well as being able to speak with student ambassadors who were on hand to share insight into studying at higher education.

Our students said, “After we arrived at Manchester Metropolitan University, we attended 4 lecture style presentations based around culture, analysing a movie character from a Spanish film, grammar and translation tasks. It was really useful and interesting and we have taken away the skills we learnt and practised to use in our Spanish A-level. It was also a great experience to talk to university students studying Modern Foreign Languages, to see the campus and spend the day like a university student!”

Road Safety Awareness Week

This week is Road Safety Awareness Week. A very thought provoking presentation will be given to students during assemblies throughout the week. It also follows lessons which all Year 7 students have been involved in over the past 2 weeks delivered by John Toker from Sefton Council about taking risks and the devastating effects of not being sensible and alert while out in the community.

Successful Anti Bullying week at Chesterfield High

To conclude our Anti Bullying week work, our school community has come together to sign the #nobystanders campaign. All students & staff have signed a pledge to declare that they will not be a bystander to bullying and will not tolerate any form of bullying in our school

“I will never be a bystander to bullying and teasing language. If I hear it, I will call it out and if I can, I will stop it. By adding my name I promise to stand up for fairness, kindness and never be a bystander.”

Anti Bullying week continues

Year 7 and 8 have been making Anti bullying Super Hero masks in form time. As part of our No Bystanders Campaign they have all signed a pledge to not stand by and say nothing if they know that bullying is happening.

All of the students are watching the Jesy Nelson documentary ‘Odd One Out’ as part of their personal learning lessons to raise awareness of the impact of bullying and learn about what we can do to prevent bullying.

6th Form news

Thank you to Gabrielle Coggins from PWC who delivered an engaging presentation and workshop to Year 13 Students last Thursday. PWC are a multinational organisation who offer a number of Professional Services; building trust and solving difficult problems. During the session students were presented with a number of Case Studies to resolve and after much debate they delivered their well thought out solutions. Professional Services is a growth sector in Liverpool and so this was an ideal opportunity for students to discover more about this service industry. @pwc_uk_careers #chesterfield365
