  • Birmingham Botanical Gardens Trip – Year 7

    Published 14/02/22

    All Year 7 Students had a wonderful time exploring the Birmingham Botanical Gardens last week. Year 7 students had the opportunity to hold a giant snail, a snake and a bearded dragon (amongst other things). They also worked in groups to complete a rainforest challenge, learning more about rainforests and why they are so important.

                                                     

                                       

    What did our students say about the trip?

    “I loved the trip because you could touch the animals”

    “I liked how we get to see every plant from every country and I loved how we could hold the animals”

    “The trip was very good as I got to learn about tropical rainforest and the plants that grow there. I also enjoyed the trip as we had lots of time to explore the Botanical Gardens. I definitely enjoyed the trip and would go again”

    “The trip was very fun and inclusive, the activities were very interesting and I learnt a lot about the plants. Free time gave us a chance to explore the gardens”.

    It was a privilege to watch Year 7 students trying new things and deepening friendships. They were excellent ambassadors for NLS and we had wonderful feedback from the teachers at the gardens describing our students as “sensible, polite, enthusiastic and well behaved”. It was a lovely day that we hope to repeat in the future.

  • Alex showcases the Boogie Woogie Stomp on Radio 2

    Published 09/02/22

    Alex Clay in Year 9 was invited to perform on Zoe Ball's Radio 2 Show this morning (9 February ) as part of her Alternative Piano Room Month. Normally only celebrities get to showcase their piano skills live on the radio but this month, Zoe asked listeners to contact her if they could play the piano. A video of Alex playing 'Boogie Woogie Stomp', which he performed on a visit to St Pancras Station with his parents, persuaded the show producers to invite him to play it on the show. 

    Alex has piano lessons but is mainly self-taught and teaches himself new pieces via YouTube tutorials or simply improvisation. 

    Listen to Alex's performance on the Radio 2 show via the iplayer - about 07:15

  • Y7 Whitemoor Lakes residential trip

    Published 30/01/22

    Year 7 trip to Whitemoor Lakes Adventure Centre in Lichfield, Staffordshire

    1-3 April 2022

    Outdoor adventure school residential trips are an excellent way to enhance learning and build upon foundations learnt in the classroom. They also allow young people to develop their skillset and try a range of exciting activities, such as kayaking, climbing and problem-solving. Overcoming new challenges and working collectively as a team can help improve students’ relationships with their peers and foster better relations with teaching staff. Spending time away from home in an unfamiliar environment can bolster self-confidence and help instil problem-solving skills and a sense of independence.  

    Students will take part in a range of activities, including open canoeing, raft building, zip wire and archery plus evening events. These activities are led by Whitemoor’s own team of qualified instructors. Each activity has its own risk assessment. Our aim is for the students to have fun, learn new skills, become more motivated as individuals, to take part in new and enriching experiences, discover more about themselves and their capabilities and to learn to support value and celebrate each other’s success.   

    In order to run the trip, we will require a minimum of 120 students to attend. 

    For more information about payments and booking requirements please view the letter sent to parents and carers here

  • International School Democracy Project

    Published 30/11/21

    Our fantastic International School Leaders have been working on a project all about Democracy in the UK and abroad with our partner school in India. They met with the students at Anjuman Islamic Girls School in Mumbai over Zoom and were able to have a brilliant discussion about the advantages and disadvantages of democracy here and abroad.

    We were so impressed by the maturity and insight our students demonstrated in both asking and answering questions. They then, very bravely, presented their findings to both Year 7 and 8 via a whole school assembly.

    During our tutor sessions this term, students have had the opportunity to learn about the conflict in Syria and reflect on the refugee crisis worldwide. They have responded by writing letters as a tutor group to child refugees around the world.
