A fantastic week which included our Prospective Parents Open Evening on Thursday21st sept. This was very well attended by a large number of pupils and families from local schools who gave very positive feedback to the arranged events and subject areas they saw during the evening. Stoke Park was buzzing! Potential learners and their families were taken round by Stoke Park student guides to get a feel for our school and what we would be offering. This involved them seeing impressive and eye-catching Science experiments, staff dressed up in French costume, a range of PE activities in the sports hall and gym, Food and Nutrition taste tests, surveys organised by Business Studies and Health & Social Care. Maths problem solving challenges, the History staff dressed as famous people through time, Religious Studies with great displays and food on offer that reflected different cultures and traditional ways of life. Technology demonstrated metal casting to visitors, Student support staff reinforced what levels and types of support learners would be able to access, English and Media were actively showing how we teach and extend student literacy and presentation levels. Music was great in the Main Hall and added favourably to the very well attended Head Teacher talk and student presentations. Drama learners were active in role play and performing short self-created scripts and the evening was an over-whelming success.
We would like to thank every one who attended and everyone who helped create a really lovely evening.
