Mental health Splatter Days!

The mental health splatter days have gone very well indeed. Pupils and staff alike were inspired by the stories of courage, determination and resilience that were told by BLESMA and Amy Winehouse survivors. A big thank you to NB for organising this.

World Book day!

Staff and students at all three bases celebrated World Book Day on Thursday 7th March.

There was a quiz and some funny shenanigans with book jackets as students selected book titles that reflected something about their personality.

This photograph demonstrates how this was done in the ASD centre. Fabulous!

Thank you to all staff who encouraged participation. There will be some photographs on display around school soon.

 

Comic Relief

Well done to the Lincoln base who raised £39 from a cake sale for Comic Relief. They also had a joke competition and our pupil DT won best joke, and our staff member SLwon worst joke. Big thanks to JD for organising this.

Pilgrim Sweatshirts!

Sweatshirts

The new Pilgrim sweatshirts have gone down a storm and been more popular than we could have imagined. It’s great that so many of our pupils (and indeed staff!) want to identify with our school community in this way. The pop up shop is open again until 10th April and orders can be made by following this link:
