Year 7 and Year 8 were extremely lucky on Tuesday 5th December to get a visit from Nicky Singer, the award-winning author of well-known books such as, Feather Boy and Island.
We had a very successful Discovery college Presentation of Prizes and Year 8 Graduation ceremony in which all Year 8 students received a certificate recognising their achievements and wishing them well as they move into Key Stage 4 next year.
'Discovery College is a design for learning that creates a rigorous, engaging and authentic experience for our students. We are committed to becoming a centre of extraordinary work in which all students are capable of excellence regardless of prior attainment, needs or background. Student work is the very currency of what we do and it is important to us that the work our students engage in matter beyond grades or exams.
The day to day running of the Discovery College is underpinned by the three concepts of gaps, growth and grit. Students and staff working together to identify gaps in students’ knowledge and skills, then providing the opportunities for students to grow to fill these gaps and supporting students with the necessary grit and determination to do so.'
