  • Queen's Platinum Jubilee Competitions

    Published 27/05/22

    NLS staff and students have been preparing for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations this week. As part of tutor time, students have engaged in sessions and quizzes to learn more about our monarchy. We launched a competition for the best decorated tutor classroom.

    We are going to announce the winning tutor group, and their exciting prize, after half-term. 

    Great Jubilee Bake Off



    Our Great Jubilee Bake Off took place on Friday 27 May. We were so pleased to have over 60 entries from students in all year groups and staff. All students who entered, and showed real commitment to our school community, will receive R3s. There was a real buzz in the courtyard at break time when these cakes were then sold to raise money for The Prince’s Trust. We are so proud that our students have raised over £320 for a fantastic charity!

    Thank you to all of our parents/carers who have supported their child in engaging with this. It was really hard for the judges to choose the winning entries and were genuinely so impressed with the baking skills of our NLS students.

    Please view all the amazing entries in our photo album

    Entries were from the following students:


    The winners (below) were awarded this based on their creativity and originality! A massive well done to all of the entries!

  • 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.
