Students investigate World War One on 100th anniversary This term, year 8 students will be taking part in a project around the conflicts in World War 1 and creating and hosting an exhibition on Thursday 3rd April. The project is a collaboration between art and humanities and allows for history to be brought alive in a visual and entertaining way. One of the key principles behind projectbased learning (PBL) is to create authentic experiences for students that involve real-life outcomes and audiences. We will therefore be inviting parents, friends and visitors from outside of school to come and experience the exhibition and be given a tour by our students. Students will be expected to learn about the causes and consequences of WW1, reflect on some of the personal experiences of those involved, and explore artistic ways of expressing their understanding through art installations. To find out more about this project, please visit our project page online at: www.21home.weebly.com/ww1-installation-2014

Amazing talent on display

Congratulations to Tasnim Mozumder in Year 7 for her impressive charcoal study of the Tollund Man, which is nearly 5 foot wide and drawn using charcoal and chalk on brown paper. It is on display in the main hall near the computers.

JLT springs into action

The Junior Leadership Team (JLT) got into action this week as they visited their coaching groups who they are buddied with and we also saw Nishat and Eliyas hold the first School Council meeting. The meeting was completely chaired and managed by the students and all the council members spoke eloquently as they brought lots of ideas to the table.


What’s your passion this term? Enrichment clubs play an important part of life at School 21, we strongly recommend and encourage students make use of the many clubs on offer as these allow students to further develop their skill and specialism, encourage social mixing and experience new and exciting activities. Clubs are open to all students and if they require any more information about the activities on offer they should speak to the relevant member of staff or their coach. Additionally Leadership Coaches will meet with their Year 8 Leadership circles on a fortnightly basis, while the Student Council and JLT will meet regularly

Action required by all parents on Free School Meals To ensure that our school is able to access additional funding of up to 30 per cent of our existing school budget from central government for the next six years, it is vital that everyone completes an online registration form (irrespective of whether you are eligible or not) . You only need to do this once and it will last for the duration of your child’s time at our school. This needs to be done immediately.
