The Governing body of Glenburn Sports College met on 17th June 2015 and decided to lodge an appeal against the closure decision. They believe that the reasons for the decision need to be examined by an independent adjudicator and the appeal process will allow for this to happen.

Message from the acting Headteacher

It has been a busy half term for sporting events and several students achieved personal bests. At Edge Hill Reece came second in the 100m with a PB of 12.37 seconds. Reece also did well in the long jump coming second and achieving a PB of 4.97m. Pedro achieved a PB in the shot putt of 7.64m. Congratulations are also due to Kiah (2nd in the 300m) and Charlotte (3rd  in the long jump) as well as Kieron, Peter, Reece and Roberts who also performed well in the relay. Our year 10 boys were 4th overall and the Y9 boys reached 5th place. 
 
GCSE Drama performances were fantastic this half term. Imagine how terrifying it must be performing in front of friends and family. Too Much Punch for Judy provided a serious message, Bouncers provided the usual laughs and the other performances were delivered very professionally. 
 
The Whit revision school was very well attended and sessions took place over four days of the holiday. I know that the students that I worked with in Maths worked very hard and covered some big topics. Of course the revision sessions need to be backed up with hard work at home and Y11s need to prepare well for English and Maths which take place in the first week after the holiday. Y10s have also put in a lot of work as many have taken some exams this year. The GCSE timetable can be accessed by clicking the banner at the top of the page.
Educational visits have taken place this half term. The Pendle Witch walk proved very popular with our Y7 students. They had a fantastic day in Lancaster and Pendle and built on their work on the book Malkin Child. A number of KS3 students travelled to France during Whit for a PGL visit.

Students from our link school Guang Hua wrote to Y7 from Chengdu in China. Letters were sent back and have been used to make displays in block 2.

We have carried out visits to external courses where students are working on qualifications to help them in their chosen career. It was really pleasing to find that some students are likely to secure an apprenticeship after the course

Best wishes,
 
Karen Ingham
