National Citizen Service6 November 2018
National Citizen Service is running again this year. Last year Graham School recruited 50 students who took part in the programme. Our students had the best engagement out of all the secondary schools in Scarborough. It was a great experience for all involved.
I have secured a reduced rate for our students of just £35 instead of £50. This is because NCS will be allowing us to sign up on Black Friday in November. There will be an assembly for Year 11 and they will be given sign up forms. Parents will then be contacted for details and payment at this point to secure the place.
£35 to go to France/Scotland for 4 days and stay at an outdoor pursuits centre, spend the second week at York University and finish off with a social action project from a venue in Scarborough! All travel and accommodation is included for the first two weeks activities. Passports are not included if going to France!
All NCS courses begin after ALL GCSE exams are finished. Finish off Year 11 in style!!
If you would like any further information on NCS please visit the website outlined on the attached document or call school to speak with Mr Peattie.
Graham Goes Global4 October 2018
In September we were delighted to welcome our partners from Spain, Germany and Italy to Graham School as the next part of our Erasmus+ project which has been running since September 2017.
During the week, our European visitors enjoyed a packed programme organised by Spanish teacher Ana Brigido of Graham School and participated in a photography workshop delivered by Mr Moore, as well as a multilingual webquest in which they found out more about Scarborough’s rich history and attractions. On visits to Robin Hood’s Bay, Whitby and York, our continental friends were accompanied by Year 9 and Year 10 students from Graham School who have been working on the Erasmus + project for the last year.
Using an innovative webspace, Scarborough students have been working ‘virtually’ with students from Gesamtschule Battenberg in Germany, IES Sierra de Gador in Berja, Spain and IC Vitaliano Brancati in Catania, Italy since last year and amongst other projects the children have created video guides to their local areas. Children stayed with host families from Graham School and families also joined in with the project during a family BBQ at the North Bay Celebration Chalets on the last Sunday of summer! Our students are now looking forward to the next stage of the project when Team Graham will visit Germany.
Graham School Results Improve23 August 2018
Following a difficult year of Ofsted, changing sites and the ongoing academisation of the school, Graham School has seen its results improve significantly at GCSE. There have been some excellent individual performances, including many of our students achieving either A*or grade 9 in a range of subjects, the new standard of excellence at GCSE.
