Year 8 Celebration

On Thursday 13th July a special celebration event was held, to honor the progress and achievement of our year 8 students. Prizes where awarded for making progress in lessons, contributing to the wider life of the school and having a positive attitude to learning. Special subject awards and Heads of House awards were also given.

After the ceremony students and their parents enjoyed a buffet and time to catch up, celebrating their success. Thank you to all of the students and to the staff who supported the event.

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.

Each week the highest attending tutor group receives the ‘Attendance Trophy’ in assembly. The tutor group gets to keep and display the trophy until the following week when the next highest achieving attendance tutor group will receive the award.

Last weeks winners were VW

Well done!

End And Beginning Of Term Arrangements

 

School will close to students at 12.40pm on Friday 21 July for the summer break.

For students entitled to free school meals, a packed lunch will be provided before they leave school.

Parents who have childcare problems due to the early closure should contact Mrs T Watson (Student Services Officer) who will make arrangements for your child to remain on school site until 3.30pm.

Due to the Go North East school bus now being a public service we are unable to change the timings to suit our needs so students will need to make their own way home. However, the Premier bus will be moved to 12.45pm for the students that use this transport.

School will reassemble for all students on Tuesday 5 September at the following times:

8.55am – open to Years 7, 8, 9, 12 and 13

10.20am – open to Years 10 and 11

Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

We wish you a pleasant and safe summer holiday.

 

Charity day

Tomorrow, Friday 14 July,  we will be supporting fundraising in memory of Bradley Lowery the young boy who died last week of neuroblastoma. Students can come to school in a football shirt or colours on a top relating to their favourite football team. Students MUST wear the rest of the school uniform e.g. trousers/skirt and shoes as well as bringing a bag and PE kit (if they have it tomorrow). £1 donation towards the event will be collected as students enter the school. No other colours (not related to football colours are allowed), no bare midriffs.

Snapchat Warning

We have become aware of a new phone app called Snapchat yellow. It’s a bit like tinder and is supposed to be for 17+ but doesn’t stop you child joining even if you say you are younger.
It introduces you to people that you can accept or decline giving the person a picture, your name, age and even where you live.

Transfer Day @BCHS

Today was transfer day for the Bedlington partnership of schools. This saw all of the primary feeder schools coming up to the high school for a day of information and taster lessons. The students enjoyed a variety of lessons and sampled the school day and menus.

Buskers At Alnwick Gardens

On Sunday 9th July a group of students set off for a day busking at Alnwick Gardens The weather looked good and the students were in high spirits. On arrival the performers were assigned key locations around the gardens. After a few nervous moments, they soon settled into their performances and crowds started to gather. A few hours later, the students were tired but had definitely made a financial gain as well as a great experience all round.
