Compass School, Mulberry School for Girls, St. Gabriel’s College, and Swanlea School have brought together just a few examples of some of the excellent practice that takes place every day in the classrooms in our Hub. Our aims for this evening are to both learn from the excellent practice of others and to celebrate the outstanding teaching of our partner schools in a relaxed and informal setting.

Our Christmas show this year was a collaboration between the Drama and Music and Art departments.
The choir and Drama Club joined forces to perform an adaptation of the The Polar Express by author Chris Van Allsburg. The cast- all from Key Stage 3- stayed behind after school for their rehearsals throughout October and November to perfect their lines and songs.
The performance was performed to an audience of the whole school staff and parents on the afternoon of December 13th. It was a wonderful way to get into the festive spirit!
We would like to thank all of the cast and musicians for their hard work in making this a great production as well as Ms Williams for the fantastic scenery.
Please keep your eyes on the school website in the new year for exciting news regarding our summer performance!
We hope you all have a lovely, restful Christmas
Mrs Coulson, Mrs Hibbert and Miss Blackford.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and Education Secretary Justine Greening visited Swanlea School last week.
Swanlea was involved in the CAMHS and Schools Link Training pilot in 2015/16 which saw local models of joint working between schools and mental health services vastly improve. The pilot meant that services worked more smoothly together, and children were able to get the right help quicker through the new, trained school leads, reducing pressure on local CAMHS services and improving the mental health support of all pupils.
The Health Secretary and Education Secretary talked to our students about the services available to them and how Swanlea’s help and support has benefited them and their mental health.
We also showed the minsters the work our students have been doing to raise awareness around mental health. Students were thrilled to present the ‘I Am Me’ campaign, a video and set of images promoting awareness of the issue for young people and the community. Needless to say Education Minister, Justine Greening, was more than impressed and encouraged our students to carry on with raising awareness on such an important topic.
