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

Kinema in The Woods School Trip - Ralph Breaks The Internet

We had a very successful cinema trip with over 70 pupils and staff in attendance.  Pupils and staff were treated to a showing of 'Ralph breaks the Internet', the sequel to 'Wreck It Ralph'.  Everyone, of all ages, really enjoyed the film, even though some of the oldies did not understand what half of it was about!  The pupils were amazing and represented themselves and the school perfectly.

Amber Hill - Community Coffee Morning

Amber Hill recently held a community coffee morning as part of the pupil’s Vocational Study course and also to build relationships with the local village. Pupils baked cakes for the event which were sold to raise money and tea and coffee was served for free. We were delighted to have 20 visitors from the village who were genuinely pleased that the school was open again after many years of being closed. Many thanks to LC and LS for organising the cake bake with pupils.

Celebrating Success - Dress as your Hero for Remembrance Day

Thanks to DA for organising a ‘Heroes’ morning at Amber Hill as part of the Remembrance celebrations this year. Pupils and staff were encouraged to come dressed as their hero and time was spent reflecting on what a true hero was before acknowledging the two minute silence at the war memorial which is positioned just inside the school grounds.
