Christmas London Trip Head Teacher & Governors message for the archive!

A Special Message from the Head Teacher to one and all at Pilgrim this Christmas about our London Trip and how it has encapsulated the spirit of the Pilgrim School.

Hi Everybody

I have spoken to JO and said how much I appreciate what the team has done for the children on the London trip.

I really appreciate and want to thank you for all that you have done, everyone of you, to make this trip possible. JO, for organizing and leading the trip, the staff who accompanied the pupils on ever such a long day, and the people who have helped the pupils develop their resilience so that they thought they could go and for ensuring that the school still functioned.

If Pilgrim stands for anything then it stands for creating a place and giving pupils experiences so that they believe that  they can do more than their history has told them they can; creating places and experiences where pupils thrive. This can only happen where there is a staff team who see their job not as “ticking boxes” but by regularly and habitually going the extra mile.

I appreciate what you do, but much more importantly so do the pupils – even if they do not know how to say it.

 Kind Regards

 Steve Barnes

A Special Message to Staff from the Chair of Governors.

Hi Everyone

We have all known for a long time that The Pilgrim School is a kind school, with compassionate and dedicated staff who give everything to make a difference to the lives of our pupils.  But what can go unrecognised and unappreciated is a phenomenon I call the “Pilgrim Effect” where, when under pressure, you all pull together to produce something really special for our pupils.  This was apparent with the planning and delivery of the London trip.  You are very special people, individually and collectively, and on behalf of the pupils, parents and Governors I want to thank you for everything you do. 

And all this has been going on in the face of Christmas, which we know generates pressures of its own.  I hope you have some energy left to enjoy a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year!

Warmest good wishes.

John Gibson

Chair of Governors

It was a great trip; the performance was excellent and certainly gave us all food for thought; we got to see the beautiful York Minster from the outside and our pupils were an absolute delight – a credit to The Pilgrim School.

End of Term Trip to Mablethorpe for Louth Pupils

Nine go to Mablethorpe

On Thursday 19th July 2018, staff and pupils from Louth base went on an end of term trip to Mablethorpe.  The day started with a visit to the Seal Sanctuary where the staff and pupils enjoyed an informative walk around the grounds and learnt about the various animals at the sanctuary.  Whilst there we spotted a couple of unusual monkeys.

Past Pupils Success!

We have been informed that two of our past pupils are doing very well in their Post 16 education.

One has just completed her AS levels and achieved A,A,B.

The second pupil that has left us a time ago, has now been accepted onto a Masters in Criminology.

We wish them well, and look forward to hearing more positive stories of past pupils.

 

Fantastic Start to the New Academic Year for all at Pilgrim!

The new academic year has started positively across all the Pilgrim bases with staff and pupils enjoying re-acclimatisation and settling activities aimed at reassuring, re-connecting relationships and forming initial connections and bonds for pupils new to the school.

Amber Hill base opened it's doors for the 1st time to pupils merging from our previous Boston and Sleaford bases.  Pupils and staff have had a fantastic day that has been helped greatly by the work staff put in to 'Get to know you sessions' prior to the summer, when pupils visited each others bases and took part in team building activities. Fantastic work folks!!!
