Andorra Ski Trip – February Half Term 2016
Following a 2am start on Friday 12 February, our 6 staff and 62 students (Years 9, 10 and 11) took a journey to Birmingham Airport for a flight to Barcelona then on to Andorra.
Some fantastic sunny weather for the first few days led to hard skiing but some great panda eyes! Then the temperature dropped to -14 at night and -3 during the day with some good snowfall during the day which was a great experience. Hot chocolate was an excellent way to warm up!
We enjoyed a visit to the capital city – Andorra la Vella, to do a bit of shopping in the local shopping centre. The students enjoyed buying gifts and of cause, McDonalds!
We had several hours of skiing a day, enjoyed our time in the hotel playing pool, air hockey, computer games, cards and a good evening meal to relax and prepare for the next day.
Sledging on the last evening was great fun, again with a hot chocolate to warm us up!
With a 5am start homeward bound, we were ready to hit Hasland in the afternoon for a weekend off before coming back to school on Monday. We had had an excellent trip and a wonderful experience.

Year 11 Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
We would like to invite parents of all Year 9 students to come into school on Wednesday 23 January at 7pm to attend the GCSE Guided Choices Evening. The evening provides an opportunity for you to find out more about the Key Stage 4 Curriculum and the subjects that are part of it. Subject teachers and the Careers Advisers will be attending to answer your questions and offer advice. We look forward to seeing you.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.
If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Bev Kershaw on 01246 273985 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
