Sherlock Holmes Theatre Trip

Students were given the opportunity  to see “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Curtain” - a play performed at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal. The trip was paid for using the schools bonus system, with students earning a set number of bonuses to meet the eligibility criteria to go on the trip.

The play tied in neatly with the module on Sherlock Holmes that some of the Year 10 groups were studying, but the trip was open to all pupils as we felt that it offered a wonderful opportunity for enrichment and enjoyment.

Reward trip to Boston Snooker Centre

The student council voted for their term 5 reward trip to be to Boston Snooker Centre. 6 students qualified for the trip and enjoyed several frames of snooker.

Key Stage 3 Music Lessons

Students in Key Stage 3 are currently in receipt of guitar and keyboard lessons from a visiting music teacher, we are very excited about the opportunities that this may open up to our students in becoming budding musicians.

Cake Ransom

Term 5’s charity fundraising took the form of a cake ransom. Cakes were baked by year 9 student Millie, and each house had to raise enough bonuses or cash to pay to release their cake from its ransom.

As you can see Waddington house were very happy to be in receipt of their cake!

Work Experience Programme

Students in year 10 are currently undertaking a work experience programme at school. Starting on Monday 2nd July with first aid training, followed by fire safety training on the Wednesday, groups of students have opted to take part in the following experiences:

All of the groups have worked incredibly hard, each producing something to be very proud of, whether it be the first edition of "Bridges Don't Talk" (the new name for the school newspaper, a repaired bicycle, a variety of baked goods or a newly painted withdrawal room.

The experience continues next week.

Street Photography Workshops

On Monday, pupils at Bridge House Independent School were introduced to the first in a series of Street Photography Workshops run by Grimsby based "Street Photography" duo Anete and Geoff.

Anete and Geoff visited the Carlton Road campus, bringing along a range of cameras and printers to help pupils build confidence in using the professional tools of the trade. Pupils took portrait pictures of each other and staff and spent time adjusting the visual effects using a mac based programme. Some pupils then took things to the next level by creating artistic images using stimuli from the Art room.

Pupils are excited for the next workshop when they can begin working on their own portfolios and then in the future capturing the "Street" theme in and around the Boston area. We hope the work can be used as a fantastic piece of evidence for pupils Post 16 destination applications and also for future work experience in the field of Art and Photography.

Gardening Club

On Wednesday afternoon’s during our clubs and booster sessions, Key stage 3 students have been working with staff to give our garden area a good spruce up.

In addition, some of our year 11 leavers, who have now finished their exams, have planted up one of the beds with some lovely flowers to add some much needed colour!
