School Parliment Trip

UNIfied Trip To Sheffield

On Monday the 4th of February 24 year 10’s had the chance to attend an educational trip in Sheffield. The trip named UNIfied was a collaborative day between The University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University, run through HeppSY+.  During the day students had the opportunity to build confidence, negotiation and communication skills along with information about Higher Education within a University institute. The students were really enthused throughout the whole day and showed great confidence in their own ability to progress onto not only further education, but higher education. 

GCSE Science Live Trip

On Monday, we had the pleasure of taking 24 Y11’s to Sheffield town hall for the GCSE Science Live trip.
After hearing from 11 doctors and professors of various routes in the Scientific field, our pupils came away seemingly inspired from hearing the routes scientific study is heading in. 


The presentations included topics from future energy resources to embryonic culturing, time machines to wormholes, DNA to states of matter and examination techniques from an AQA assessor. This lead to our students actively participating in asking the lecturers questions in front of the lecture theatre. We were the first school to ask a question out of a packed theatre (that can host in excess of 2000 people).  Well done to all of the pupils who took part!

Year 7 Roller Skating Trip

On the Last Wednesday of term before Christmas, 7.3 students had the opportunity to go roller skating as an EDIS reward. The Children had worked hard all term, ensuring that their individual attendance contributed to the whole forms attendance, in order for them to earn Clifton Cash. By the end of last term, they had enough to go on a trip and it was in agreement that they all wanted to go roller skating.

All the children had a great time, either showing off their skills or learning how to skate for the first time. Those who had skated before, promoted the Clifton way, by helping those who were a bit nervous. All the children represented the school well, being polite and well mannered. They all returned having thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Great trip all round!!

7.3 are now aiming to keep up their attendance record so they can go on another reward trip in the summer term.

Trip to Poland

We flew out from Leeds with 25 students all excited for their History residential.  Whilst in Poland we visited Auschwitz which left a lasting impression on all the students.  Other visits included the Oscar Schindler Museum, the salt mines (used for worship in WWII) and the Jewish quarter chronicling the persecution of the Polish Jews.  There was time for a spot of retail therapy too!  The kids were a pleasure to be with and a credit to the school and MAT.  This visit will live with them forever and help inform their opinions and decisions for a lifetime.

 

The Rock Assembly at Wembley SSE Arena

On Thursday 13th July, 45 KS4 pupils travelled to Rock Assembly at the Wembley SSE Arena. Organised by The Transformation Trust, the Rock Assembly is an annual event in which 10,000 pupils from across England have the opportunity to explore career options and talk to universities at the Futures Fair before watching a concert in the afternoon.  This year, the acts included Sarah Close, Pink Angels, Some Velvet Morning, The Dixon Bros and Gavin James.  The headline act was The Vamps!

The pupils had a fantastic day and can’t wait for Rock Assembly 2018!

Y10 STEM Trip to Teen Tech 2017

Mr Goorwitch and Mr Gurran accompanied 10 Y8 students to Teen Tech 2017 and they were a real credit to themselves, their families and Clifton.  Their behaviour, enthusiasm, innovation and articulation (when presenting to strangers on three occasions) were real highlights of the day.

Their design of a 3D-food printer for the third world was not only innovative but the first example from all schools that benefitted those less fortunate which speaks volumes about our students.

It was a real pleasure to enjoy the day with them and if you see any of them tomorrow please congratulate them and hopefully they’ll tell you even more about it.

Well done to all students who took part:
