Attendance Winners!

Attendance and punctuality are so important both for school life and for life when students have left school, that’s why Bedlingtonshire Community High School celebrates attendance success when we can.

Uniform Donations

We have become aware of a group that is collecting donations of school uniforms, white polo with grey trousers/skirt, black trousers/skirts for example and all donations will be clean, ironed and in good condition.
They are having a stall at the Hirst Park event on Sunday 18th June from 10:30am so parents can come and collect uniform FREE. We will have a donation pot but there is absolutely no obligation to give any money, any money given will be used to purchase more uniform or to buy school bags to give out to children/ families that need them.

Year 8 Enterprise

On Thursday 8th June 2017, Carole Richards of Northumberland Education Business Partnership (EBP) organised an Enterprise Day, for Year 8 students from Bedlingtonshire Community High School.

Over the past four years, Northumberland EBP and Bedlingtonshire High School have worked in partnership, supported by Business Ambassadors and Apprentice Ambassadors, to allow Year 8 students to practice their employability skills and to meet and work with ‘real’ employers.

To reinforce their learning, the children performed the role of adults working in the Manufacturing Sector. The children attended two competitive workshops and were supported and judged by ‘real employers’ from Northumberland County Council, Turncoach, HMRC and DWP.

After a fun but informative day, the children left school with a raised awareness of the world of work. Working with real employers the children were afforded the opportunity to gain a current insight into modern day progression pathways to employment and a better understanding of the employability skills employers expect.

This Enterprise Day was the culmination of 4 years of partnership working bringing together the world of education and the world of business.   It served as both an educational opportunity and a well deserved reward for all Year 8 pupils involved prior to moving on to high school and selecting their GCSE subjects.

Year 7 Enterprise

On Tuesday 6 June 50 Yr 7 students participated in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) event which was delivered by Carole Richards from Northumberland Education Business Partnership and supported by Business Ambassadors.  Tetrahedron was developed to help students better understand and to practice their team working skills and their problem solving skills.  Firstly, the children work on their own using bamboo sticks and elastic bands to build a mini tetrahedron, then they work in pairs and then in teams to gradually build the 3 dimensional, 4 meter high pyramid.  When the construction is completed the students are asked to test their work by raising the tetrahedron to the ceiling, so a full rotation then flip it over.  This is a fun activity which allows the children to prepare for the world of work and on this occasion to work with staff from DWP, HMRC and the RAF.
