Keeping our Travel Dreams Alive!

With all the current turmoil over worldwide travel, we feel that it is important to remember the diversity on our planet and to hold on to our dreams of visiting places that are significant to us.   Our Year 9 geographers have been considering their top 15 places to visit before the age of 50. Here are some examples of their work - maybe you will be inspired!...

Keeping Our Beaches Tidy

Over half term one of our students in Year 7 and her family spent 10 minutes collecting rubbish and plastic waste from a local beach. Well done Isla for thinking of doing it, but how sad that you were able to collect so much in such a short time. It has been particularly windy in the UK recently and this has caused a lot of rubbish to be washed up onto our beaches or even...

Looking After Our Mental Health

As a follow up to our blog last week about Children’s Mental Health Week, our blog compiler and science teacher extraordinaire Soraiya Humby spoke to our pastoral tutor Mrs Bullock to find out about some suggestions for looking after ourselves. "Looking after our mental health is as important as looking after our physical health, and the two are very much interlinked.  Here is a list of good habits you could try to adopt to keep yourself...

Photography Club!

Last year we were approached by some of our students for an extra club!  It turns out that at Net School we have several talented photographers who were keen to learn more, have some projects to work on and exhibit some of their art.  One of our science teachers Dave Horton also has an interest in photography and gladly took up the role of club co-ordinator. Photography club started at the beginning on January with...

Taking English further at Net School

Net School has recently launched a select number of A Level courses. For English Language we currently have a lovely small class - one of our students has written about their experiences of the course so far: I’ve been at Net School for about four years now, but A Level English Language is one of my favourite classes thus far! It’s been good fun revisiting old techniques I learned for IGCSE and improving on them,...

Oh no he didn't... Oh yes he did!

Our Net School students are busy both in and out of school. Isaac, one of our Year 6 students, was excited to share some of his recent art successes with the rest of the class and we were all so impressed we wanted to share them further. In November Isaac took part in an art exhibition held by an organisation based in Suffolk called Fine Not Fine (www.finenotfine.org.uk) , which works to help young people...
