Here are some of the photos of our reenactment of the coal mining strikes of 1984. Some of the children took the role of the police, and some took the role of the protesters. It gave the children a great understanding of the emotions and importance of the events which took place!

Pupil Council Collective Worship 

As part of their project to improve the school environment, the Pupil Council have been choosing inspirational quotes from famous Christians to be displayed around school. These two council members helped to explain a quote by James Hudson Taylor by leading a collective worship and telling the children all about who this amazing man was.

‘There are three stages to every great work of God; first it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done.’
