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.
