6th October 2023
With open evening this week, sixth form open evening in two weeks and a successful football game on Thursday, there have been lots of opportunities for families to join us on site and see what happens on a daily basis at Chilwell School.
Geography students have been out on field trips over the past few weeks. We plan these trips to ensure students are able to get field data to inform their studies. Mr Skelton and the team had a number of successful trips with both GCSE and A level students.
On Thursday year nine were treated to a careers assembly with Enact Solutions, promoting careers within the NHS. We are currently finalising arrangements for post sixteen taster day for our year elevens on 19th October, where there will be a combination of A level taster lessons and visits to local colleges. For any advice on careers, please see our careers section of the website.
Thank you to all of the families that joined us on Thursday. It was a pleasure to see you. Parents who were not able to join us can still take the opportunity to see us at work by booking a tour. These are available as last year up until half-term.
