8th December 2023
We are looking forward to the last two weeks of term as there are lots of events as well as the opportunity for our year elevens and thirteens to be demonstrating everything they know in their mock examinations.
We have had coaches in from Nottingham rugby this term. This has been a catalyst for a lot of enthusiasm regarding playing rugby both in and out of school.
Mr Lodge has contacts at Long Eaton, Nottingham Casuals and Corsairs rugby clubs if your child is interested in joining a team.
We are looking for more friendly fixtures against Alderman White after Christmas and are looking to get specialist coaches in to help support a rugby club after school.

Students in year eleven have been confirming sixth form applications for Lakeview at Chilwell for September 2024. We are also meeting with external applicants and we welcome further applications from students who want to study with us. Please follow this link for applications.
We have a number of upcoming events in the final week of term. On Wednesday 20th we will hold our annual "Wear something Christmassy" to raise money for Save the Children - uniform is not required.

On Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, our year sevens will also get the opportunity to see a Christmas pantomime.
We are also really pleased to have nearly fifty students attending the University of Nottingham engineering and science learning centre on Monday 18th for their Christmas lecture and science activities.
