Duke of Edinburgh Logo

The school is now registered for a licence to deliver the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.  The DofE Manager will be DA and a pilot will be run at the Sleaford Base initially with approx. 4 – 5 of our current Y10 and below pupils.  Sessions will happen every week starting after Christmas to prepare them for their expedition.  If the pilot is successful we will roll out the award to other interested bases/pupils.

As of the 1st February 2018 we as a school became a Directly Licensed Centre by The Duke of Edinburgh Award. This means that we now have the ability to run and assess the award within our bases.

The D of E will be managed in our school by Dave Anderson (Learning Mentor) and lead by him and a team of Leaders to ensure we offer the best standards we can. We may also from time to time require some volunteers for specific parts.

The D of E is broken up into 3 levels and then each level has 4 or 5 sections. Due to the time scales and age ranges we have we will be aiming to have a Bronze and Silver group at each base. These levels are broken down as shown.

We will support our pupils through their D of E in every way we can but I will take some support from home. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to email me on david.anderson@pilgrim.lincs.sch.uk

Celebration Day 2019

Tuesday this week saw a day of Celebration across the school bases.  Louth held their own event tailored to their pupils needs whilst Lincoln and Amber Hill pupils came together to celebrate their achievements over the academic year and, of course, the end of term!

Prom 2019

It was amazing to see so many of our Year 11 and Yr10 pupils supported to attend our annual prom event.  It never ceases to amaze us how well equiped and resilient our pupils have become with time spent with us, to be able to attend and relax in a busy formal setting such as Prom!  The pupils looked great!!

RAF Scampton - Red Arrows Trip

On Thursday 27th June 2019 pupils and staff from Lincoln and Amber Hill bases were invited to RAF Scampton to watch the Red Arrows carry out an in-season display practice.  The weather was perfect, sunny but not too hot and this made great conditions for viewing the display. 

Lincs Show 2019

Pupils from Lincoln and Amber Hill base attended the Lincolnshire Show last week. They all had great fun taking in the sights, sounds and smells (literally) of the show! The KS3 group from Amber Hill joined up with ASD centre students and enjoyed watching  the Police Dog show and cuddling a few lively ferrets! Others had a wander around the shops and stalls trying out games and sampling some of the delicious food on offer. They had such a great time and were so tired that some fell asleep on the way home. A good day had by all and a big shout out to JD for being the group organiser and herding the flock all day!

Congratulations! Completed Exams!

Congratulations to all Yr11 pupils who completed their end of year exams.

Message from the head teacher:

The general consensus from overheard chat from the pupils is that they have been well prepared and have given the exams a good shot. The pupils can feel proud and validated by what they have done. They have been helped to achieve this by having had strong teaching and strong support.
