Big school week

Calderstones School hosted eight local primary schools as part of Big School Week this year.

The school welcomed more pupils than ever, with approximately 600 pupils from Greenbank, Gilmour, Sudley, Rudston, Woolton, Booker, Mosspits and Dovedale primary schools and could not have asked for more engaged and polite pupils from each.

Pupils were able to take part in taster lessons across the curriculum, from PE and catering, to business studies and science.

The aim of the week was to aid transition from primary to secondary and make the move as easy and as exciting as possible.

The pupils were supported throughout the day by Calderstones student ambassadors who showed them around the site, helped in lessons and along with the sports leaders ran brilliant activities at lunchtime.

The student ambassadors have continued their work with transition week, presenting Young Citizen of the Year awards in each of the participating primary schools to celebrate pupil success.

The whole two weeks proved to be a great success and Calderstones have said that they are looking forward to continue working with each of the primaries, and hopefully more, in the future.
