Awards Evening 'Amazing'

The Awards Evening was absolutely amazing.  Pupils, parents, staff, Governors and LA representatives celebrated the success of our pupils both pastorally and academically.  Very touching, personal stories, were shared by pupils, that outlined challenges, worries, concerns etc. that with the right environment and individualised support had lead onto personal success. Many a tear shed but with lots of laughter too! 

Pilgrim Staff 'Reach Out to Share Good Practice about Mental Health'

BL and HS jointly presented to Minster Teaching Alliance about mental health. They originally were expecting around 30 people but ended up delivering to two cohorts of around 50 each. We have heard lots of positive things about this and it has already generated interest in more delivery and training as part of the Minster teaching alliance. Congratulations this week therefore goes to BL and HS for their success on their first outing into new territory and we look forward to hearing more successes as Pilgrim spreads the word about mental health in the future.

Awards Evening

Staff and pupils are gearing up for another fantastic 'Awards Evening' on 19th October at the Sleaford Rugby Club, when the Pilgrim family celebrate the pastoral and academic success of our young people that have worked so hard throughout the year/s to overcome personal challenges to ultimately succeed.

It is our way to acknowledge and support pupils with their transition from Keystage 4 onto Post 16 provision.  Our thoughts, best wishes and support for the child does not simply stop with doing exams, we support, encourage and reassure pupils and their families to make appropriate choices for Post 16 that will ensure the best future prospects and life chances as they can.

Educate Against Hate

Messages of hate can take many forms. Extremist groups use them to recruit young people. Here you will find Q&A and resources to help you protect your child

Celebrating Success:

This summer the school achieved the best  GCSE and BTEC outcomes for our year 11's than we ever have before. Even with new, more demanding GCSE specs in English and Maths, our pupils did brilliantly.  The results are even more impressive against a background that sees more and more complex young people joining our school. Congratulations to the entire school community for these achievements. It is team work that makes the magic happen within our young people.
