Year 6 Careers Program
We have an exciting opportunity for our year 6 pupils to gain an insight into the world of work with a careers program delivered by FYI (Follow Your Interest) on the 7th of July 2023.
The FYI program is designed to empower Year 6 pupils by providing them with valuable insights and guidance as they embark on their educational and career journeys. With a strong focus on individual interests and aspirations, we aim to lay a solid foundation for their future success.
We wish you a blessed Ramadan! Today our decorations went up!
Our pupils celebrated British Science Week between 10-19th March. This year’s theme was ‘Connections’.
“Nearly all innovations in science, technology, engineering and maths are built on connections between people; two (or more) heads are better than one, after all!”
Each year group carried out an investigation linked to a famous scientist and shared their findings with the rest of the school!
JazakAllah to everyone who contributed to our food sale fundraiser! We managed to raise a total of £1275.04! All proceeds will go towards improving the provision we provide for our pupils inshallah!
