Level 3 BTEC Engineering – Information Evening

A reminder that we are running an information evening for parents and students for the proposed Level 3 BTEC in Engineering, which we are hoping to run from September next year for Year 12 students. It is on Wednesday 12th December from 6:30 – 7:30pm at the school. We will have Mr Rob Palmer, Deputy Head from The Grange School here to talk through the course, as it is currently running at The Grange and we would hope to be able to answer any questions you may have prior to our 6th Form Applications deadline, which is the end of this term.
Year 9 Attitude to Learning Grades

Art Foundation Residential
The last week of November saw our Foundation Art & Design students embark on a four day residential to London, which acted as a starting point for their latest project, ‘Serendipity’. Over the course of the visit, the students saw over a dozen exhibitions that directly linked to their potential degree pathways, which range this year from Fine Art, Fashion and Textiles, Architecture, Photography, Graphic Communication, Games Art Design and Theatre Design. Through rain and shine they walked along the streets of London, sketching, snapping on cameras and moaning about their feet, but all had a brilliantly productive and life enhancing time.

Royal Marines Visit for Level 2 Public Service Group
On Tuesday 4th December two Royal Marine commandos visited the Level 2 Public Service group and gave them an insight into the world of being a Marine. They spoke to the group and gave them a very detailed insight into Marine life and what it is to actually serve in this vital public service. They explained that every Marine goes through a gruelling 32 week training course – ending in a 30 mile physical run / walk over Dartmoor which must be completed in 9 hours.
Commando Values are:
* Self-discipline
* Integrity
* Humility
* Excellence
The Level 2 group then went on to participate in two leadership and communication PLT’s which were designed to test the group’s leadership, problem solving and communication skills. They had to transfer Marine equipment from one place to another and also collect equipment from a ‘land mine’ area and safely deposit it in a safe area. Both tasks were done in the time given and some great teamwork and leadership skills were shown.

As the last task, students were put through their paces in several physical tasks where they had to carry each other and perform a ‘gun style’ relay carrying equipment. The teams got very competitive as the winning team were allowed to choose the forfeit of the losing team. An incentive to win if ever I heard of one.
Everyone pushed themselves and despite initial reservations by a lot of the group, enjoyed the tasks and challenges given to them. Thanks to Tom and Chris from the Royal Marines Visibility Team for coming to see us at FUS.
