This week, Year 8 visited Gosforth Central Middle School to meet with celebrated children's author Michael Grant.
Michael gave a thrilling and entertaining presentation about how he researches his novels, the process of writing and how he overcame tremendous adversity to become the successful author of over 150 novels.
The boys had the opportunity to ask some questions which ranged from "What is your favourite thing about writing" to "How much money did you make last year?" Students could also choose a specially dedicated book, which they will be discussing in their English lessons. It was a fantastic opportunity for the boys to further their celebration of books and, as always, the boys did themselves proud.
Year 10 boys have visited the Theatre Royal to see Willy Russell's much acclaimed musical Blood Brothers.
They were thrilled by the musical scores and shocked by the dramatic and disturbing change in the character, Mickey. Their excellent seats meant they didn't miss a bit of the action on stage.
It was a fabulous evening enjoyed by all.
In the past few weeks, Nursery have been working on their model-making.
The boys have independently designed different vehicles made from junk and, with the help of the Nursery staff, have assembled them together. The boys have also followed plans to make tracks and roads using the construction kits and have designed and made their own musical instruments from waffle bricks.
