Year 7 Gurdwara Trip
On Tuesday 17th and Thursday 19th May, pupils from Year 7 visited the Gurdwara in Smethwick. The pupils learnt all about the 5ks and the main Sikh duties. Also, they were given a guided tour around the Gurdwara and served a traditional lunch of lentil dahl, rice and chapati.
The pupils studied some beautiful artwork while listening to stories about Sikh kings and Guru Nanak. They also sat in the prayer hall and respected the priest with the Guru Granth Sahib (holy book). Year 7 described this experience as interesting and wonderful.

Warwick Castle Trip
We fully enjoyed taking Year 7 to Warwick Castle. It was a fantastic trip which was thoroughly enjoyed by both staff and pupils. We got to walk the castle grounds, visit the state rooms inside the castle, we climbed to the top of the castle and saw the views of Warwick and watched the brilliant birds of prey show. The pupils were a real credit to the school. Thank you and well done Year 7.
Inspiration Day - Digital Safety
On Wednesday, 6th October, the whole school took part in an Inspiration Day that focused on how to keep themselves digitally safe. Throughout the day, pupils were encouraged to think about their media choices and habits, including how they achieve a healthy balance of online and offline activity. They looked at their digital footprints, considering how their online actions impact themselves and others. Pupils also looked at how digital dramas can be de-escalated and at how they communicate with others online. We looked at roles in cyberbullying and how pupils can be responsible digital citizens. The work produced from each year group is now on display.
